for those of you who had on campus interviews... did you write a thank you email and if so, did your interviewer respond? I thought my interview went okay but I didn’t get a response to my email - hoping this isn’t an indication of the feedback she submitted!

I thought I had a great interview as well and I did not receive a response to my thank you email.

Yeah, whether or not they responded is not an indication of how well or poorly you did. My alumnus interviewer replied to mine, but I remember my friend having an on-campus interview and hers didn't reply to her thank you note either. She got in. Wouldn't read into it. :)

This is going to be a long four days of work. Good luck to everyone on Thursday or maybe even Wednesday!

I don't believe so. Some previous rounds reported a call a day before the deadline but I don't think I'd give it much weight.

Looking at last year's thread everyone appeared to get a call the day before.

So if you don't get the call Wednesday then you're probably either WL/Dinged. Of course they could change that but it appears to be a trend.

Good luck to everybody here. Wanted to offer advice to those of you who don't get the coveted admit. Darden admissions mentioned that R2 app volumes were light, encouraging people to apply to round 3. So it might be a good plan B for some of you finance folks.

I received a PM about this and wanted to post the response publicly.

One of my clients was strongly encouraged to apply in round 3 by a Darden admissions officer he met in person at the MBA tour ( or one of those multi school event things.) He ia a diverse applicant (middle east) with a strong work history but his GPA is 2.5 and zero extracurriculars. And I believe he was forthright about this. Maybe the tiki torch activities impacted their numbers?

I think Texas also has a fair bit of room left in their class. One of my clients sat in on a presentation and they also encourage round three applications. Not exactly a finance school but great for tech and energy, would be a good place to go if you're interested in Investment Banking in the oil and gas sector.

Sometimes it helps to have a plan B in mind when you're sitting on your hands freaking out waiting for something.

On that note CBS J Term *if* you don't need an internship, which is probably not going to apply to many finance people, but another possibility.

Sorry - nope, that is all I've got. If any of you have connections with Admissions Officers you met at The MBA Tour or the like you might want to give them a call and check into it. They might not divulge but worth a phone call.

All the best everyone, be kind to yourselves. I interviewed in R1, and I thought I had a great interview. I guess it just was not meant to be. Although i did wish I interviewed with the adcom instead of the alum. Hope you guys hear some good news :)
