Hey Guys! nice to meet you all.

Btw, Has any re-applicant requested the application feedback? I wanted to know how the call is usually structured and how useful the feedback is?

Below is the essay question for the Darden MBA 2017-18 application cycle:

"When preparing for class at Darden, students formulate an opinion on each case before meeting with their learning teams and class sections. When encountering different views and perspectives from their own, opinions frequently shift. Tell us about a time when your opinion evolved through discussions with others."

(500 words maximum)

Last year Darden was not super kind to Indians. I emailed them for feedback and I was told to look out for the notification on their blog/website. Honestly, I did not feel too good about that and it seemed very informal. However, I have heard really good stuff about Darden's feedback process.

Who all are in the Darden boat?

Just one question?!

How will they know why I chose Darden or what my future plans are?

Anyway, how does one begin to tackle an essay such as this?

Hi,

Has anyone received an invitation to the Darden Fellowship competition? Or anyone have any insight on how many people get invited? Darden hasn't been on my target list, but I got an invitation today so I am trying to gauge how many people are invited....is it worth giving Darden a second look or is this invite something that is sent to a lot of people?
