Went to the Ross reception in LA last night. All in all, it was a great event. Ross definitely knows how to wine and dine. There was a surprisingly large turnout. I'd say there were about 25-30 admitted students and 10-12 alumni. There were a lot of recent grads (05-07), a handful from the '90s, and even a sprinkling of folks from the late '70's/early '80s. I also met armycamel, who is a pretty cool guy.

Couple of things I noticed. There were a lot of admits who were on the fence. I ran into a girl that was also deciding between Cornell and Ross. Also ran into some folks that were considering Duke, Tuck, and Kellogg. There was a plethora of people deciding between Anderson and Ross. Interestingly, all of those folks who I spoke with seemed to indicate that they were strongly leaning towards Ross despite wanting to come back to the LA/SoCal area.

I also spoke with the head hauncho from career services. He said that internship rates are at about 58% this year (down from about 72% at this point last year), primarily because of IB. What's interesting though, is that he said that domestic internship rates are up compared to last year, while int'ls are having a VERY tough time (because of visa/sponsorship issues---e.g., TARP firms).

From an unofficial Ross source, I was told that 45 students went after investment banking this year (down from about 100 last year). 15 students received offers.

Where are all of you iphone guys? I'm disappointed with the lack of people who read gmatclub forums while at GBR - PM your info if you're around.

LSU, sorry I didn't see your post while I as at GBR.

I just returned home (with a two day stop in Chicago to visit friends) and had a blast at GBR. I was able to meet YihWei and NoMSG randomly (good thing YihWei uses his first name as his handle here), my first GMATClubbers in person.

The published numbers were approx. 375 students and 75 partners in attendance. I'd guess that 50% of the folks I talked to were headed to Ross and 50% on the fence with Kellogg, Chicago, Duke and Wharton being the most common schools people were considering.

This was my first chance to get inside the new building and it was better than expected - more spacious than the photos do it justice. It should make for a pretty awesome place to spend the next two years.

Heard the class size increase question asked -- the answer was about 10 more students -- nothing significant.

Had a good time at GBR!

I'd say 75% of the people I talked to where coming to Ross, there were some Kellogg and Chicago people but I didn't think they would come, I met a girl wanting to studying marketing at Kellogg and a guy wanting to study finance at Chicago (why even go to GBR?). Almost everyone was deciding between Ross and Tuck, it sounded like Ross got the edge for the people with families and partners and a toss up between the rest.

I'm officially accepting my offer so it looks like 2 years in Ann Arbor for me.

oh man...my body is still recovering from GBR. Had a great time though, wish I could have met more people. Everybody pretty normal and easy going; excitement level was pretty high.

Signed my rental for next year, and got to explore Ann Arbor a bit more. Very nice town, weather does kinda of suck though; I am going to have to pack lots of warm clothes. Overall, I think its going to be a very fun 2 years :) .

I'd say I'm 95% as well, GBR was a TON of fun and reinforced the strength of the Ross community.
