Received the call right before 9 am this morning from one of the admissions directors (who was not my interviewer); she said "scholarship decision" would be released at noon. Congratulations to all admits so far!

Edit: Got a half scholarship!!! Now comes the really tough decision

Hi all,

I'm not in my home country so I missed the call although my phone is roaming :). Anyway, Isabel emailed me with the good news. Looking forward to the scholarship info too, if any :(. I haven't been too lucky in this department.

Good luck to the rest of you guys!

Thanks Hiren.

While I get into many schools, I don't receive as many scholarship as I wished. As an international student, it is pretty important to me. So I'm crossing my finger and hoping Darden can be the one :)

They will send out the info in a few hours.

Good luck with your app!

Wasn't my best effort and no communication from Darden had already 'unofficially' confirmed the decision.
Today, it was put on paper.
Unless my waitlist schools do a miracle, pittsburgh it is..

Leaning towards Duke. Still waiting to hear from Georgetown, but the only thing stopping me from paying the deposit at Duke is my significant other has a great paying job in DC, so we'd have to do long-distance for the 2 years. I promised her I'd wait to hear back from Georgetown before any decisions were made.

Got a half scholarship! Not named, however, so I'm curious what weight that carries to employers.

Same boat as you. I did not know employers look at scholarships.

I agree. I've similar scenario, but we are in Canada and I am coming to the US anyway. But then, there will be a time when the issue will pop up.
There is no job post MBA in the USA that can justify she giving up her really good job.
Such a difficult situation, eh?

Denied without interview.
