As you might have noticed in last week’s blog post featuring Darden Admissions’ itinerary of fall events, we’re doing a bit of globetrotting!

Executive Director of Admissions Dawna Clarke and Director of Admissions and Recruiting Whitney Kestner will start the new academic year with a series of events in India and the Philippines. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with alumni and Admissions representatives about their Darden experiences and learn more about Darden’s degree formats.

During my business school research process, my most interesting insights came from attending school events and interacting with members of the various Admissions teams and alumni networks. During Darden’s reception, I spoke with the Admissions Committee members about everything from immigration concerns for international students, to Charlottesville, to the MBA program. Their willingness to answer every question really made an impression on me, and the Darden alumni I met at the reception have been a constant resource for me since the event.”

Early Action Interviews

Early Action interviews are open to candidates targeting our Early Action deadline (3 September) for the full-time MBA program. During the open interview period, Early Action applicants may schedule their own interview and do not need to wait for an interview invitation.

For Indian candidates applying in our Early Action round, we are excited to offer select interview slots in India as well as via Skype. Keep an eye on your email in the coming days for an update about upcoming Early Action interview opportunities in India. Interview times are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to act quickly!

Did you know? About one-third of Darden’s current students were born outside the United States. The Class of 2020 represents 36 different countries. In each cohort, Darden typically has around 20 to 25 students who have primary Indian citizenship, a significant number given the class size and diverse backgrounds of students.
