Congratulations! You are going to love Darden. So happy to hear you made it. You will have no regrets. And let me point out to our readers that you got in with a 680 GMAT. Why? Because Darden, unlike a lot of other schools, really lives up to its word in doing holistic admissions. I am certain your background as a chemist and your degrees in chemistry made your 680 a non-factor.
Hi Mr. Former Scientist! Congratulations on your multiple acceptances! I am sure your Chemistry background and mentorship impressed schools. I assume you are heading to Darden, but if you’re still weighing your options, make sure you consider factors such as: school reputation/placement rates in your target industry, educational approach, cost, location, and community fit. Hopefully you are finding good ways as an admit to virtually connect with your future classmates!
