Hey guys, regarding Darden's Essay - professional feedback and our response. Did any of you pivot the response into what your ST and LT goals are? It just feels a bit weird not talking about any of that. I'm in for R2 btw and about to submit...

I was accepeted and did not mention ST and LT goals in my essay. They ask for them in a separate question box in the online form.

Career Update: Darden’s December Job Treks  [#permalink]

FROM Darden Admissions Blog: Career Update: Darden’s December Job Treks
Last month, over 100 Darden students flew out to New York City and San Francisco to participate in our annual Week on Wall Street and San Francisco Job Treks. During these job treks, students had the opportunity to speak with company recruiters and Darden alumni currently employed by major tech & finance firms such as J. P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Google, Twitter and Facebook.

The San Francisco Job Trek, led by Darden representatives Tiffany Gutshall and Chequeta Allen, was attended by over 50 Darden First-Year students interested in careers in the tech industry. The tech industry represents a growing segment of graduating Darden MBAs, with 15% of the Class of 2015 going into full time employment in the industry (up from 4% in 2009). With the tech industry hiring an increasing share of graduating MBAs, our students were very enthusiastic for the opportunity to network with employees of top Bay-Area tech firms like Electronic Arts, eBay, Twitter, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn and HP.

                Meanwhile, in New York, Darden students, led by the Career Development Center’s Ed Yu, visited some of Darden’s top hiring companies from the financial sector. Among these companies were Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley, Rothschild, J. P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Barclays, Citi, Jefferies, Deutsche Bank and more. The financial industry has long been one of the top recruiters at Darden, often taking in up to a quarter of the graduating class, and boasting an average base salary of nearly $125,000 for graduating MBAs (preliminary figures for Darden Class of 2016).

                Aside from the Tech Trek in San Francisco and the Week on Wall Street, Darden students participated in several other student-led job treks in December, visiting New York, Philadelphia, Seattle and Washington D.C. to meet with leading companies in Retail, Media, Entertainment and Consumer Products industries. Moreover, participants in these treks were able to hand select the companies they wanted involved, and were able to visit acclaimed organizations such as NBC Universal, HBO, the New York Times, Twitter NYC and the Brooklyn Nets.

As an international applicant, is it a bad idea to apply in R3?

I didnt apply in round 1/2 because of some potential personal commitments.

I'm an Indian Female with a 680 and a fairly strong professional profile (3 promotions in 40 months, international work ex., leadership positions, selective Ivy summer program etc)

It looks like some invites are out on GMATClub tracker and also Livewire. Does anyone know if Darden sends invites in waves or all at once?

FROM Darden Admissions Blog: Student Profile: Justin Tang
Justin Tang (MBA ’17) is a member of our Student Admissions Committee.

Image


1. Why did you decide to get your MBA? – I worked for a management consulting firm the past 4 years but found myself in the passenger seat of my own career. While I appreciated the perks of the job and some really interesting projects, I didn’t want several years to fly by without controlling my own career path. I wasn’t convinced managing client relationships and accounts were right for me in the long run.  So, I decided to take a step back and pursue an MBA because it offered me the opportunity re-evaluate my career opportunities with the support of an incredible community.

2. Why did you pick Darden? – I chose Darden because I knew the program would be rigorous. One student put it like this for me: Putting together your recommendations for each case by yourself, during Learning Team, and in Section, gives you the chance to speak and defend your position three times. Now multiply that by the hundreds of cases we do at Darden. What better simulation is there for actual business meetings when the decision-making process is rapid and fluid?

3. Once you got here, what made Darden feel like home? – The people; I’ve met wonderful friends here who I would want at my wedding (thankfully they’re patient too). I also loved some of the late Summer/early Fall events like watching the sunset at Carter Mountain—what an incredible view.

Image

4. What do you like to do in Charlottesville in your free time? – I’m a pretty simple guy. I enjoy getting in a swim workout, playing basketball with classmates, or getting in a round of golf at the course. My Charlottesville bucket list includes enjoying a few backpacking trips out in Shenandoah this Spring.

5. Name one unexpected thing about yourself. – Secretly, nature freaks me out. While camping, the last thing that goes through my head is all of the bugs crawling around me….andddd good night.
