I posited when I first received the invite to apply for the Fellowship that it was just a ploy to get high GMATers to apply to Darden when they otherwise wouldn't (focusing on H/S/W and Booth). After learning that statistically nobody gets the Fellowship, I'm certain it's just a ploy. Pretty brilliant actually.

The second wave of invitations was 4 days after the first one according to 2015 thread. We may expect another wave this week.

For those with an invite when did you apply? I'm hoping the first round of invites went to people who applied well in advance of the deadline...

A couple days before the deadline. I don't know if that matters too much. There are a ton of different ways they could go through the list - last name, randomly, when started your application, etc.

FROM Darden Admissions Blog: Guest Post: Darden Academy
In today’s post, Lauren Berger (MBA ’17) tells us more about her experiences thus far with Darden Academy, a learning enrichment program that was introduced this fall for First Year students.

                This year, Darden started a new program – Darden Academy.  Once a week, in lieu of normal class time, faculty teach specialized classes that supplement our normal curriculum.  Darden Academy is an opportunity for students to delve deeper.  Each week, the academy offers around four classes.  One is normally a supplement to our normal classes, and the other three tend to be about current events or developing practical skills.

For example, as someone coming from a nontraditional background, using the software Crystal Ball in Decision Analysis was a bit beyond me.  Darden Academy offered multiple classes to help me and many others in the class solidify skills we learned in class.  But I also took Darden Academy classes that piqued my interest outside of class.  With the debates leading up to the 2016 Presidential Election occurring throughout the fall, my Accounting professor Mary Margaret Frank led a session on tax policy and how it relates closely to the presidential election and the theater of politics.  There was also a panel on the European migration crisis and workshops based on trends in business.  And in true Darden fashion of looking out for us students, there have also been workshops on our wellbeing.  Professor Lili Powell, also a certified yoga teacher, led multiple sessions on meditation and relaxation.

One of the reasons why I enjoy Darden Academy is it offers me the opportunity to explore interests outside of the classroom.  Plus, it represents what I feel is a very large part of the Darden community: faculty and the administration listening to students’ needs.  Whether it’s holding sessions on current subjects students are interested in or taking time for ourselves, Darden Academy is a great supplement to the traditional MBA program.

I got an invite to the Darden Fellowship days as well! Do you know how many were invited? I also haven't been contacted by the University about admissions/interview. Do you need to hear form both?

I was crossing my fingers there would be a second wave today. I feel like I'm in the doctors office waiting for a diagnosis. Any news from anyone?

**IGNORE**I asked, and yes, they are separate processes, so you need to hear from both. Apparently if you do get an "admissions invite," they can combine it into the Jefferson weekend.

Unfortunately I still haven't heard about an admissions interview... my plan is to wait a few days for a possible invite, then call the admissions office and explain my situation. I can't make two trips to Charlottesville so it will be interesting trying to figure this out.
**IGNORE**

EDIT: This post is wrong. They told me that if I attend Jefferson weekend, they'll arrange an admissions invite, but if I don't attend, I'll have to wait for a separate invite.
