What are my chances for Darden?

niharmniharm Registered User Posts: 27 New Member

I am a Junior this year and just wanted to get an idea of how I will fare with U Virginia.

- Ethnicity: INDIAN (How much will this affect me?)
- Household Income: 200000
- Texas resident, top 4.2% of my class (23/548)
- Highest SAT I: (2nd time) 2050 (640 CR) (720 Writing) (690 Math)
- ACT: 33 Composite (31 English) (35 Math) (33 Reading) (33 Science)
- SAT II: Haven't taken any, do I need to?
- 3.9 Unweighted GPA
- Taken 10 AP Classes
- Taken 5 PAP Classes
- Varsity Tennis (captain next year)
- BPA (advanced to state for video production)
- DECA (advanced to state for Entrepreneurship Innovation Plan, hoping to go to nationals)
- An Independent study class where I'm under the mentorship of a business professional (He went to UT BHP so I know he can write a good rec letter)
- Part of a marketing team for a local exterior painting company
- Over 150 volunteer hours

Also, my ACT essay score hasn't come out yet but I don't think I did that well on it. Can someone tell me what I need on my essay to have a chance? Will the ACT essay be a big factor in admissions?

Thanks so much!

    Darden is a graduate school and most MBA programs prefer someone with post-baccalaureate industry experience.

    The undergraduate business school is McIntire and UVA students can apply to join that program in their second year at UVA. Students prepare for McIntire in the College of Arts and Sciences.
