4. I know there's a Residence Inn within easy walking distance of Darden. There's also a Best Western that is about 20 minutes by foot. If you stay elsewhere around town, cab service is pretty accessible.

Hi,
I visited during an open house event and found the Best Western friendly and convenient, if a bit dowdy. They had, by far, the best rate of all the places I checked on within close proximity. (the rate on the phone was much better than that listed on the web) At the time of my visit the place was packed with young women visiting for a tennis tournament.

There are many reasons why one might chose not to drive but I think it would make your trip more convenient to have transportation under your own command. The school is located in a very beautiful area, though not metropolitan, area. I drove down (from IAD) and the drive was quite pleasant. Large swaths of the countryside resemble a golf course and there were many photogenic bits in the trip. Darden has a dedicated parking lot and provided day passes for visitors, making access to the campus with a car painless. I did not have the chutzpah to schedule a meeting with pelihu and regret I didn't as I much admire many of the thoughtful things he has posted.

Best Western Cavalier Inn
105 Emmett Street N US Charlottesville, Virginia, 22903-1728, United States
Phone: 434-296-8111

3. I can definitely meet with you if you'd like. Generally, there are chances during first coffee (a 1/2 break between our first and 2nd classes each day). I think most visitors have lunch with 2nd year hosts, and there's generally time to meet before lunch. Something else you could do is ask to sit with Section A when you go for your class visit. If you schedule a visit, I'll tell you my name and I think the admissions office will be happy to accommodate.


Pelihu, scheduled a visit and sent you a PM.

I read somewhere that the adcoms started reviewing applications on November 19th. I'd give it at least a week or two for them to start inviting people for interviews.

Yeah...I guess the invites will be out by Dec 1st....to give folks time to make plans to attend interviews between Dec 17th to 21st.

The status of my app changed to "Pending" :

"Your application is now with the Admissions Committee for evaluation. You will be notified of your decision by email on the decision date assigned to the application round in which you applied."

Yup...mine turned to 'Pending' yesterday. Any idea what is the significance of this status? Is it equivalent to Wharton's 'Complete-Round 1'? If it is, then Darden took a really long time (nearly a month) to send the apps to the AdCom.

They waived mine. I mentioned that language of instruction in my undergrad was in English and also that I have been working in the US for over three years.

has anyone heard the approximate % adcoms will be asking to interview? If apps are up 15 to 20% then the # may be skewed, but it would still be nice to know.

Yes, you have allowed me to bring my love for UFC into GMATclub...i used to have a liddell/couture avatar but replaced it.

Looks like we will have from 60 to 65% chance of admit if offered an interview...not bad. Still need the interview invite though.

If it makes you feel any better my app still says received. I called and the adcom said they would be sending it to the committee on Friday. IF I get an invite it's going to come very very late in the cycle.
