Application Advice: Dawna Clarke Shares Recommendations Tips!

By Brett Twitty-

Our Round 3 deadline (3 April) is right around the corner, and Executive Director of Admissions, Dawna Clarke, is back with another Application Tips video!

Building upon her previous entries exploring essays, interviewing, and resumes (Leadership/Impact | Global Experience | Hobbies/Interests), in this video, Dawna offers her best recommendations advice.

As she notes, “At UVA Darden, we require two recommendations as part of our application process, and recommendations are a great way for us to get a sense of a number of important qualities – leadership, collaboration, initiative, – as well as your professional accomplishments and impact.”

Check out the video for even more insights, and be sure to note the setting – John Paul Jones Arena, home of UVA basketball. Did we mention that UVA Men’s basketball beat NC State today to advance to the semifinals of the ACC Tournament? Darden Admissions is definitely ready for March Madness.
