    Congrats on your acceptance to UVA Darden. Your first choice may be NYU Stern and that’s fine, but I would be very happy with your Darden admit. Given your post-MBA goal to transition into MBB consulting from a Fortune 10 healthcare company, Darden would be your ticket into the world of McKinsey, Bain and BCG.

    Hello Mr. Mr. Bioinformatics! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here!
    Bioinformatics is a HOT topic these days so I am not surprised Darden scooped you up. It’s a great program at a great school and they are lucky to have you. In my experience, your demographic, the 710 and 8 years of work experience was always going to make things tough at HBS and CBS.

    Hi, this is Melisa from Stratus Admissions. Congrats on the acceptance to Darden – that is great news! Given your goals, it is a great option for you.

As you are staying engaged, highlight any new opportunities for leadership at work or your extracurricular activities – can you take on additional strategic projects at your current role that you could highlight? Best of luck (and patience) during the waitlist process. So happy for you that you have a great option already available.

    Congratulations on the Darden acceptance. I don't know if Stern is awarding more acceptances or not but a waitlist isn't a "no". Good luck. Let us know. Darden would be spectacular.
