All the best to all those who have got interview invites!

Has Darden sent out any mail other than confirming that the application has been submitted?
Thats the only mail I have received so far after submitting my application for R2.
Can someone please clarify?


Provided that your application is complete and they don't need extra information you shouldn't receive any "intermediate" update before receiving the invite,
it is perfectly normal!


Thanks Tgt for the confirmation!

Hey Man, this is unbelievable,I have never heard of anything like this ,how much experience do you have and in in what domain?

Thanks,
Siddharth[/quote]

I have never heard that too, even though I read somewhere that Darden has suggested the some candidates to pursue executive MBA instead of 2 yr MBA only during the interview process. I am 30 yrs old and I have around 8 yrs experience in the IT industry.[/quote]


I recently saw a video session from Kenan Flagler admission committee where she told that there are some students whose chances of employability decrease if in a full time MBA and executive MBA is better suited for them .
I think the same thing happened here. Considering your experience and future aspirations , they have felt you will be more employable after the executive MBA.[/quote]

Can you please PM me the link of this video?

Received the interview invitation today.

However, the dates available are limited to 12 and 13 Feb. Hope to sort it out as I will be occupied on those dates.

Hi All, can i check if everyone recieved an email saying "Thank for your submitting your application to the University of Virginia Darden School of Business. Your application is currently under review" on the day they submitted their application?

There has been no email post that saying your application is complete or anything like that? Since lot of other schools send the same I am confused if my application is complete for Darden or is anything missing since I did not get any completion mail from them.

I think we all received the same email on the day we submitted the app. Since they didn't contact you again, u can be sure your application is complete...

Is there any cut off date for handing out interview invites?

I went through last year's thread and found that interview invitations were trickling in all the way till the end of February. So I don't think we should start losing hope till late Feb.

Hey guys quick question, does Darden have an official date or deadline by which they shall notify dings/waitlists and any and all of the last invites? or can we expect decisions going on till their Round 2 final decision deadline on March 25th?

Also did those amazing individuals with invites, receive an interview invitation via email or through the Darden dashboard?

Warm Regards

FROM Darden Admissions Blog: Darden Alumni Spotlight: How to Run a Successful Tech Startup
Darden alumni Jon Carrier (MBA ’12), Teddy Jones (MBA ’12) and Ryal Tayloe (MBA ’12) were recently featured on MSNBC’s Your Business about their tech startup, 501 Auctions. The completely self-funded venture has raised $3 million for nonprofits this year alone, and projects revenue to reach $5 million early this year. A variety of 501(c) organizations, including the Parkinson Foundation, have seen an average of 40 percent growth in their fundraising efforts since adopting 501 Auctions’ event management software.

In the following MSNBC video, the three Darden alumni discuss how they are able to run a successful startup from their home offices in different cities:

Hi All,

I am an Indian applicant based in New Delhi. I haven't received an interview invite from Darden yet. I understand that many international applicants have already received their interview calls. Question is, how long before I can assume that I have been dinged by Darden. Any clarity around the last day would be greatly appreciated. I am kind of anxious!

Thanks,

I feel end of this month would be a safe bet judging from the first round. After that chances are very slim.
