I am having a technical difficulty. There is like an hour and half left and my boss still hasn't submitted my recommendation letter.

i guess lesson learned is do it earlier and not last 2-3 days when most others doing it . Just reminds me of our PfP system crashing when everyone do it last couple of days

This is what clear admit has to say:

"New to Darden’s application, this essay gives students the opportunity to discuss how a world event has impacted their perception of leadership. It’s important that applicants follow Darden’s instructions and offer their observations on global leadership as well as more personal examples. The latter offers applicants the opportunity to present the adcom with insights into their professional and extracurricular involvements, by discussing their work with superiors and/or their own leadership efforts. Providing the adcom with a quick view into one’s career history or out of work involvements will help applicants highlight their unique experiences and thus stand out from the rest of the pool.

Applicants may also do well to discuss how their career goals have been affected by this global event and/or their changing perspectives on leadership. For example, discussing the management of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico might make sense for someone who has career plans in the energy industry, while someone interested in starting a microfinance organization might want to discuss the leadership of Haitian relief after the earthquake. No matter what global event you choose and how it has affected your perception of leadership, the admissions committee is looking for applicants who are clearly attuned to current realities, have strong ideas on leadership, can adapt to changing circumstances, and are using all of these opinions to proactively plan for his or her post-MBA days."

One of my recommenders was running late as well. I called Darden on Wednesday to ask if a late recommendation would slip me to round 2 and they said no. Apparently they typically give recommendations a few days grace period. Plus I guess they decided to push back round 1 deadline to Monday.

I got my app in last night, my second recommender didn't submit until 11:45 PM

I'm a 3.3 GPA (3.9 last 2 years), mid-level state school
710 GMAT
4 years in I.T. consulting/engineering

This was my first app ever so I'm not sure how I did on the essays. I focused on storytelling and a personal growth arc in both, while keeping in mind what they were really looking for as per the guidelines.
