So from what you've said it seems that ideally you would live in an apt/house close to Ross and its what I'd recommend without a car. Anywhere else is kind of a pain carless (in my opinion).

1. Few places have hardwood floors most have carpets
2. The closer to central campus you are the higher the rent (generally speaking). Most 1 bedrooms close to campus are probably in the 800-1000 range depending on size. It is much cheaper if you are willing to live in a house with other people.
3. If you want a converted house split into apts check out the housing fair and talk to companies there. Note: you want to talk to the student housing companies NOT places like Woodbury that have apt complexes farther away.
4. Most places should have laundry in the building and may or may not have parking. If they do you could rent the space to someone.

***There are some good apartments very close to Ross, but as in any university town the quality of housing varies greatly. So I strongly recommend against renting anything sight unseen.... There are some nice apartments and some really terrible ones.

GBR was great. I'll be honest, I have been a little pre-occupied with the fact that my doctor's office mixed up some of my labs and gave me a bloody "potential cancer diagnosis" a couple of weeks ago and quite frankly, my heart was really not into it because I've been dealing with that shock and the thought of maybe rolling over admissions and working for an additional year for the insurance for a while now. Fortunately, I got more testing done very quickly and everything came back negative today and the whole thing was a screw up at the lab. I am incredibly freaking relieved, especially since I didn't have a single symptom of anything.

Anyway, aside from the fact that I was too stressed by the thought of having cancer to enjoy anything, I met GoBruins and conmisdosmanos (with bonus boyfriend), and they were all lovely. I very much liked Ross and am happy with where I ended up.



OMG that totally happened to me last year! Isn't not having cancer the BEST?!

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?


From what I've seen during the recruiting process, anyone extremely dedicated to the recruiting and interview process will get what they aim for. This means practice interviews with student and career counselors, talking to MBA2s and alumni, learning about the companies you're recruiting for, etc. If you're laser focused, you should get what you want. If you come across as uncertain, if your statements about a specific company could easily be swapped for another, if your responses are superficial, you will have a tough time making it to final round interviews.

Anyone that's consulting-leaning should pick up Case in Point. The Consulting Club may offer it for a discount when the school year starts (they did last year), but if you want to get a head start, you could begin practicing. A consulting interview can be practiced for - just like a standardized test. They fit a specific structure to a great extent. The rest is thinking on your feet and you can't really change how you do that, but you can get better at it.

By the way, don't start freaking out. It's so easy to freak out and I'm sure you will see people freaking out when recruiting starts. But don't. An internship is important and sure, a full time job offer upon graduating is as well. But those two things are not going to determine the rest of your life. Keep this advice in your back pocket :). It sounds silly and obvious right now, but believe me, this will good to remember in the fall.

Enjoy the summer! Go on an MTrek! By the way, there may be a new MTrek popping up that's around Gulf Coast volunteerism. Stay tuned.

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.


on qsw - sign up, don't go. you can pick up the materials later. when i went to get mine post mtrek, they didn't even check if i had registered. you'll be happy you went on mtrek rather than go to qsw. and some of the profs will provide you the qsw materials as well.

Good call, GoBruins!

I'm going to the Chicago meet, going to the Chicago women's brunch, going to the informal Chicago meet-up tonight, going to GBR, and going to live....somewhere. I'm looking for housing leads through current and former Ann Arbor residents, and will keep everyone updated on what I learn.

I'm in NY and unfortunately the local meet and women's brunch are on the same days as Fuqua's Blue Devil Weekend, so I will be missing out on that. But I am for sure going to GBR-looking into flights as we speak :-)

GoBruins, thanks for starting this thread.

International here.

Going to local meet at Beijing! Anybody in this side of the world?

Not sure about GBR since that is at least 2K USD for the flight and hotel.

Housing - was thinking about this. It might be hard for me to find housing before August. Hopefully, there would still be good cheap housing then. How do you guys plan to arrange your housing? Any internationals in the same predicament? Anyone looking to share an apartment?

Hey Guys,

I wont be able to go for the GBR, but if anyone wants to meet up in Delhi between the 4th and 9th of April or in Atlanta, that would be fantastic. PM me if anyone is interested.

Im attending the meet in NY, but probably not going to GBR. Although it would be nice to meet my fellow classmates, I can not justify taking 2 days off work. I would have gone if it was on the weekend though.

Hey, sorry if this is too late. But there're plenty of places to go in Boston. I usually take people to the Union Oyster House, and there's a ton of restaurants at Faneuil Hall. Blue Ribbon BBQ is also really good, but it's in Newton, so it might be a bit too far. Anyway, enjoy your stay in Boston and watch out for the bad drivers!!!

Which one are you thinking of? I'm looking at the Barcelona, Peru (although that one's a little too laid back for me) and Iceland options. Puerto Rico is so much cheaper and I really want to see the bioluminescent bay-but I feel like that's a trip I could take easily for spring break.

I was disappointed to see that there wasn't a China or India option for Asia-it looks like there's a lot of overlap for those trips.

I have to decide how extravagant I'm feeling (or maybe how much I can literally afford...). I'm looking at South Africa, Thailand/Laos (I wish there were more Asia options also, but I think this one sounds most interesting), Iceland (if I can actually get back into shape). My cheap options are Puerto Rico and Croatia.

I'm trying to differentiate between places I would rather see myself, unorganized and on the cheap, and things I feel I probably wouldn't do alone.

GoBruins, if you like lobster, Yankee Lobster is no frills, but pretty cheap.

I'm also battling wanting to do something on the cheap vs the type of place I wouldn't go alone (or that I would, but won't because my parents would have a fullscale meltdown). I would say the two places I'm keen on but probably would not bother doing alone would be Iceland (sounds like an amazing bonding opportunity) and Israel (the type of place my parents would take the vapours over).

I think the Israel trip is really good value for the money-it's the longest and I think the ticket prices they quoted are a little inflated because I would probably fly out of the East Coast rather than trekking to Detroit and flying out of there. But for that one I'd prefer to get to Israel a few days early and go see Petra. It seems like a shame not to get that in if I'm in the area-but again, that would depend on convincing some other people to go with me because my mom would take to her bed in some Victorian fashion if I tried to sashay my way around Israel alone.
