Just come back from a trip: Should I still apply to Darden? [#permalink] New post 10 Dec 2006, 08:47
I have just recently visited Cornell and Yale, as well as had some interviews at other schools, such as Darden.
The interview at Darden was awful. I began to drive to school at 4PM, and my car crashed, so when I arrived to the school, I was too tired that I could not speak fluently and express all my ideas. Maybe the interviewer felt bored too. Seemingly that she didn't want to give me her name card. I had to ask for it, and she had to look for it...Maybe I should drop Darden out of my list, even though I love it a lot and almost finished the application.
Now just waiting for other schools. My target is Yale or Cornell, but...I love all the schools that I applied to. (Just like you have 2 wives and 4 girl-friends. You love you wives most, but you still love your girl-friends a lot)

Your almost finished with the application. Apply anyway.

Being scared of rejection is the lamest excuse.

If you are done with the app, or mostly done, you might as well apply. Remember, you can even mention how " I was so excited to visit Darden, I crashed my car on the way down! Unfortunately, this made the rest of my day and subsequent interview more difficult, as I scrambled to get to campus on time."

or

"I was especially touched by the warmth Darden exuded when I arrived. Having been in a car accident on my way to campus, I was flustered and had difficulty concentrating during my interview, but the interviewer was polite and truly made an effort to make me feel at ease."

whatever, its all just spin ;)
