Is anyone going to attend one of Darden's "Fridays in July" events? I will be at the event on the 29th, hopefully with a shiny new GMAT from the Friday prior as well. I will be staying Friday night to check out Charlottesville, really looking forward to seeing the campus, the town, and meeting other prospective classmates.

A close friend of mine who graduated from UVA raves about Charlottesville constantly, however different strokes for different folks. So great that you're taking advantage of this opportunity to speak with admissions.

I recently read an article where the admissions director stated that the average age for Darden admits is 22 - 27, however there are no strict cut-offs. Admit ages are trending downward but found that to be a little surprising.

This is interesting, according to Darden's site, their age range is 23-33 with the average being 27.

Also, do you have any insight as to why some schools' average age has been dropping over the last few years?

i have to think that the reason why its trending lower is because of the increase in gender diversity that schools want to promote. i think its tough to bring older female applicants because many of them, not all, are thinking of raising families at that time. on the other hand i could be completely wrong about this. the other reason could be the increase in international applicants who don't want to commit years of their lives at an older age.

Hello! Does any one know what to expect from "Fridays in July"? On the Darden site it says lunch with the Adcom and a Tour of the Grounds...Should we be prepared for an "almost interveiw"?

Could not find anything on last year's thread. Thank you in advance!!

Do you happen to know what to expect from this event? Should we be prepared to answer any questions i.e. Why MBA, Goals etc? Not sure yet if I will go...

Has anybody attended one of these events yet? I'm going to the one this Friday and wasn't sure what to expect. Did a search and couldn't really find any info.

Yes. I have attended the previous July 15th one. They don't ask any questions and don't interview anyone. I think the overall function of the event is to get people who are interested to learn more about Darden and what the school has to offer as well as answer any lingering questions. I had a great time visiting charlottesville and learning about Darden and I think you will too. Good luck!!!

@Bulldozer 80% sure that the phenomenon is related to employer needs. To be quite honest, they want more years where they can extract 80 hour weeks out of you. Before you have children and want a better quality of life. @bkhu I think it's related to what you're saying, but for men as well. As the responsibilities of Parenthood over being shouldered by both genders. By the way I am a huge Butters fanatic.

@bkhu how would you describe the culture there? It seems quite a bit more formal to me than other schools in the South. Wondering if you picked up any major Impressions along those lines that you could share here, related to cultural fit rather.
