University of Virginia: Darden
The Consortium Round 1 application deadline is November 15, 2012 (if you are able to come to Darden for an interview in late November, you will receive your decision on our Round 1 timeline). The Consortium Round 2 application deadline is January 5, 2013 (besides the application deadline, the timeline will follow the Round 2 dates above).
Share your thought process as you encountered a challenging work situation or complex problem. How did this experience change your perspective? (500 words maximum)
We require two recommendations that address the questions asked on our recommendation form. Additional recommendations may be submitted, but they should offer additional and valuable insight. Generally, work-related recommendations are more valuable than academic-related recommendations.
1. Please comment on the context of your interaction with the applicant. If applicable, briefly describe the applicat's role in your organization.
2. How does the candidate's performance compare to other well-qualified individuals in similar roles?
3. Please describe the most important piece of constructive feedback you have given the applicant. Please detail the circumstances and the applicant's response.
4. Please make additional statements about the applicant's performance, potential, or personal qualities you believe would be helpful to the MBA Admissions Committee.
You will need to submit a new application, but make sure to check the box that indicates you are a re-applicant. The committee can use your previously submitted GMAT and TOEFL, if appropriate, and your academic transcripts. Though the committee will review your previously submitted recommendations, you will be required to submit one new recommendation. You also have the option of supplying additional recommendations if you think they will provide a better picture of your recent accomplishments.
