They're designing machinery, engaging in cutting-edge research, solving complex equations, and reveling in the science that is engineering.
If you want to be one of those mathematical revelers, let UVA hear your passion for this subject matter. Please oh please keep this just between us." "We might say that we were looking for global schemas, symmetries, universal and unchanging laws – and what we have discovered is the mutable, the ephemeral, the complex." Support or challenge Nobel Prize winner Ilya Prigogine's assertion. If you read this prompt and immediately had a reaction, either to support or contradict it, go with that.
Remember that the first year core curriculum at any MBA program is quite quant-heavy, so it might be helpful to supplement your application with recent evidence of taking a quant-focused class like statistics, if you’re applying with an LSAT especially instead of the more typical MBA-specific scores.
The MCAT does test for some math and so that will help the Darden admissions team, but it would still help to find ways to demonstrate quant skill elsewhere in your application.
While we didn’t manage to update the DArden guide for 2018, it was actually still totally on point!
Almost all of the 2018 questions had been asked before, and are already covered in the existing version from last season.Future engineers, don't tell them that you love math because there's always a right answer, or that you've always excelled in math and science (they know that–they have your transcripts).Have you ever seen how engineering majors spend their time on college campuses?The tests need to have been taken within the past five years.If you are a non-traditional candidate who’s looking to go to bschool now, Darden would love to see an application from you!Just report your score from whichever test(s) you’ve taken on the Darden application.They will be looking for similar qualities through the respective tests, mainly reasoning skills and overall intellectual ability.We also posted specifically about the “evolving leadership style” Darden prompt here and a follow-up post on Christmas Eve here!The Darden application very different this year but really it’s not. Avoid writing essays that lots of other students could write (like "Volleyball taught me the importance of teamwork"). OK, you've read the advice from the admissions office and you're ready to start your essays. Parke Muth, one of UVA's very own admissions officers, wrote what we think is the definitive piece on college essays, especially his advice on avoiding trite, overused stories he calls "Mc Essays." It's so good that we've featured it on our blog before.
