something kinda cool at Darden - apparently professors provide mid-quarter feedback on class participation and such. I don't think that's the case in many other schools (could be mistaken!)....

Mount Rushmore is glamorous enough, I hear there's quite a party scene there.

I looked at flights yesterday.Wanted to have a campus visit and attend a class.But found that a direct flight from Atlanta is too costly.

Looking at other options.

ac8706, +1 to you if that Mount Rushmore / "rocking" pun was intentional.

To the folks who've already visited Darden, Any recommendations on where to stay?

Great to see some activity on this thread. I will try to address some of the questions/issues.

It's not difficult for engineer's to adapt to the case study method. I know many engineers (and yes, even Indian engineers) who do very will in this setting. I think it has more to do with the effort put for by the student to engage in the learning environment and also the personality of the individual. People who are naturally quiet will have to make a point to contribute.

All first year classes provide feedback on contribution mid-quarter. Generally, a professor will break the class down into three or four groups, and each person will be told if they are high, average or needs improvement. Class participation is part of the grading process for pretty much every class (it's inherent to the case study method).

So, those are the organized school-wide social events I can recall of the top of my head. Lots of other opportunities to socialize with specific clubs and things like that (the Latin students association party each year is crazy, consulting and finance clubs both host a lot of cocktail hours, etc.), and of course there are social based clubs (wine and cheese, outdoors, flying). Throw in the 10-50 nights per year you'll spend schmoozing with recruiters, depending on your career path, and you'll be able to find something to do almost every night if you want.

As of now, I plan to be here the weekend of Nov. 9-10. If I am here, I would be happy to try to get together with people attending the open house for drinks or whatever. There is a real possibility that I could be gone for call-back interviews. A couple of firms have already identified the days around that weekend for their super days, so we'll have to wait and see if they invite me. As far as where to stay in Charlottesville, I recall seeing an email asking for students to host visitors during that period of time. I'm not sure, but you might be able to stay for free on some student's couch (or spare bed) - you'll need to coordinate through whoever is running the event (I assume the admissions office and the student association). I don't know any more about that.

thanks so much peli!! it's really good to hear about what the social scene is like. I know it's a strange criteria to use for assessing a school but I think it can go a long way toward helping me understand how I'd fit. I really like the academics, career opps, etc at Darden but I wanted to make sure I'd be a good fit there socially as well.

Thanks!!

I was looking at this exact screen earlier today before posting. It was so obvious that I didn't see it!

Staying at the Sponsors Hall for my Fall Open House visit. The hotel closest to Darden, the Residence Inn, was completely sold out already!
