Does anyone know if Darden Adcom reads the supplemental Batten scholarship essay, or passes it along to another group at the Batten institute? I feel like the Darden essays were fairly short and light, so I kind of want to use the Batten essay to bring everything together and hit it home (while still discussing the Batten prompt)

I asked them this on an info call. The Batten essay is only looked at after you have been admitted.

So it makes sense to add your most impactful stories in the main set of essays. My approach was to discuss my best story in the impact essay and then discuss different angles of it in the Batten essay.

Just FYI, while I got admitted to Darden, I didn’t get the interview for Batten.

Thank you, this is helpful!! I’m definitely using my best stories in the main application but I feel like it’s so short since they give you 200 words for the “meaningful impact” story eek

Honest question: I’m training for my first marathon. Does it really matter where I get my calories from? I am burning between 1,000-2,000 calories a day training and my body seems to be hanging in there ok. Does it truly matter if I’m eating ribeye vs lean chicken? I feel like getting to 3,000-4,000 calories a day in a healthy fashion is really really hard. Just from a volume standpoint.
