I'll also do one of mine as a recent admit to Ross. Decided to turn down my Darden offer :| because Ross places marginally better in MC and the location (midwest) is appealing as I'd prefer to work in one of the MPLS offices of M/B (Bain has no MPLS office, whats up with that?).

One more month of work which means only one more month spending Monday mornings and Thursday nights in airport terminals! Can't wait to spend two months golfing, doing weekday happy hours with my friends (novel concept, being at home with friends and family), boating and enjoying the beautiful Target Field that popped up 6 blocks from my apartment.

Found a room mate and sent in our applications for a place on S. State about a 10 minute walk from Ross. Furnished, electricity, gas, parking included in rent which should only be about $600/person which isn't too bad. Haven't seen the place so this makes me a little nervous but will check it out during Ross Rendezvous.

Not doing an M-Trek as I found out I was admitted the day before the due date but that's ok, I want to spend some additional time with the girlfriend before moving away from her for two years.

Got my financial aid award notice yesterday and fortunately qualified for all the subsidized loans and will also be doing Grad Plus. Anyone know if we need to submit the additional paperwork for the Grad Plus that is on the Financial Aid website? Signed the Promissory Notes for both and obviously already submitted my FAFSA, is that all I needed?

If anyone else is a fellow Big 10 undergrad (not from Michigan) how do you plan on making Saturdays work? I'm thinking I'll probably just wear anti-opponent garb (Except when playing the Badgers) rather than any Michigan stuff because the thought of wearing Maize and Blue makes me a little ill and would definitely betray any college friendships.

Either way, can't be more excited!

I have one more month left at work so I am racking up as many hotel/skymiles as possible... I am living in a 1 BR about 2 blocks south of Ross on Prospect St. which makes it easier for me to wake up and head to class. I'm planning on joining the Ross gym because of its convenience....

I'm going to be travelling to India and Oman for the next few months till school begins and then head to Norway for the M-Trek in August...

ACNguy... I went to Purdue so am a little torn about who to support but I think I am going to go Michigan all the way during Fall and Purdue during Basketball season :P

Homework? What's that?

I have a question for current Ross students. In terms of M/B/B recruiting, what percentage of those who apply get interviews? Thanks!

Also, I'm going to be at the Ross Rendezvous on June 11. Anyone else going to be there?

So I asked specifically this and many other questions related to this to my Student Guide during GBR. From my understanding, it's not crazy hard to GET an interview, but rather hard to get through the interview.

He said about 100 will get an interview for McK (from my understanding McK is closed list). So saying from a class of 500 I would imagine only about 50% want consulting jobs, with at 30% finance, and 20% everything. and having major overlap of the 3 M/B/B I would probably guess 150 interview spots. Now here's what else he added. Those 100 will be interviewing for 10 spots, so 10% admit rate. Having a background in consulting would help obviously.

So based on my guestimate, I would say of the 60% of those who want a consulting interview from MBB will get one. Can be higher can be lower. There's also non-MBB firms. Also I think B/B have open spots that you can bid for.

Have you guys started CareerLeader, etc. yet? They've already asked us to do that and another test for Erb, and to schedule appointments with OCD this month. Yow. It's sort of fascinating, though - pointing out a lot of things I'd never directly think about otherwise.

Thanks for the detailed statistics. This makes me feel better, well, as far as interviews go. Actually landing the gig is a whole different story.

I haven't signed up for it yet, but I did register for QSW. My M-Trek is still up in the air, though.

I took it like the day after I was accepted :P let's compare results

McK has a written test first, then 2 cases, then situation interview. Talking with some people from Kellogg, Ross has the best case studies. The Kellogg students use Ross' study guide.

Mine is funny,

Apparently I am good at:
Manager Science/Engineer
Manager for Research and Development
Non-Profit administrator.

So Basically I should continue working where I work :P

I'm supposed to be an entrepreneur, a retail manager, or an advertising account manager. So yeah, doing what I've done... Or become Don Draper. :). Under no circumstances am I to go into finance, accounting, banking or real estate.

I'd be interested to take this test again after the first year or our first internships. What if we just tend to pick the answers we're comfortable with?

Just took the test - took a while. Here's mine:

General Management
Non-Profits (Administrators in Higher Education, Government and Human Services)
Production and Operations Management

This is all very, very different from what I'm doing now. On the one hand, I'm happy, because going to business school as a career switcher makes sense for me based on this test; on the other hand, it means that I've been in the wrong field for the last 5 or 6 years of my life??? And that's not including undergrad/grad.

Apparently, I'm a "very high match" for Production and Operations Management. I've never even considered this, like ever. I'm glad that GM showed up, but kinda surprised that neither marketing nor MC showed up. I only see myself doing non-profit stuff in my spare time, but not as a professional career.

Not the results I was expecting. Hmm.

Hey all -- question for you. I'm likely going on an M-trek, but it would force me to miss QSR. I really think any tune up of my quant skills would be useful, but an M-trek could represent a once in a lifetime opportunity, so I'm not sure how best to proceed. Does anyone have a sense of how introductory QSR is? Any advice would be much appreciated.

Also, I'm headed out to Ross this Friday, and hope to see some you there.

I got the link off an email that Ross sent me. I think it's the regular newsletter thing.

Here's something else interesting from my career assessment test:

"Your assessment indicates that you tend to be agreeable, trusting, generous, sincere, and sympathetic. People find you easy to get along with, and you place a priority on maintaining friendly relationships with everyone. These are wonderful qualities, but some work situations call for less sympathy and more toughness, shrewdness, and assertiveness. In these circumstances, being overly trusting and accommodating could tempt others to take advantage of you, or keep you from effectively championing your good ideas."

So basically they're saying I'm too nice and need to be more of a douchebag if I want to survive in business. Great.

Kinda reminds me about the time that my mom said essentially the same thing. I guess moms do know best, huh?

Now where can I go to learn to become a douchebag?
