This review is for UVA Darden
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2017
I was a career switcher and definitely thrived here, thanks to the case method and some amazing peers. The case method forces you to be on top of things and really learn the material. Despite all the hype about the work hard culture, Darden is NOT as impossibly hard as advertised -- just stay on top of your stuff and don't expect career services to hold your hand and you'll be fine (workload is heavy but not obscene). Your peers are very bright but down to earth. No egos here. The interview is more like a monologue; the admissions counselor will ask you only one or two questions and you'll do most of the talking.
I was a finance concentrator and was generally impressed with the finance faculty - they're definitely underrated. First year Core will prepare you well for the summer.
