    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. And since Stern was your target school and you’ve received a waitlist, that means they are interested. Stay engaged! 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.
