Does anybody know what % of applicants at Ross based on historical data gets invited to interview and what % of those actually get accepted?

Just curious

I guess the approximate statistic data may be taken from accepted411

I looked at accepted411 but I don't think the data there is reliable.

I haven't heard from Ross about the schedule yet (I selected the alumni interview option).

Today is a public holiday in the States, right? So, we might expect the feedback tomorrow... I hope

Yeah, Veteran's Day. Most people still work. I am not sure about schools' staff...

If they're government employees (Which Michigan admissions staff almost certainly are) then they probably don't work.

Ok, so I will be interviewing over the phone with a member of the admissions staff after all.
I received an e-mail from Ross stating the following:

Thank you for your continued interest in Ross. Our requests for alumni interviewers have been overwhelming—up 300% over last year. Unfortunately, we had not anticipated such a large differential and are trying our best not to tax our alumni interviewers. As such and with my sincerest apologies, we are asking some of those who requested AAC interviews to schedule with Admissions staff. There are phone and in-person interviews available. Please see the message below on directions for scheduling an Admissions interview.

Thank you in advance for your understanding, and we look forward to speaking with you!

I am not yet sure how to react... All I know is that I can't travel to Ann Arbor to have an interview in-person. Since I do not have a landline at home and can't interview from work, I am a bit nervous about having an interview over the cell phone but oh well... Gotta learn to adapt to unforeseen circumstances

Well I am pretty sure I will be throwing my hat in the Ross ring for R2. I discussed it with my wife and have decided that Ross and Duke will replace NYU and Tuck.

Based on the silence in this thread and in BW, I am guessing the invites last week were a "wave". My guess is that another batch of invites will be sent this Thursday or Friday.

So, I've meen matched with an alumni interviewer... who lives in Yuzhno-Salhalinsk. While I live in Moscow. Now, think for a second, the distance between our cities is roughly 10 000 km and the time difference is 8 hours. And yes, it is still the same country.
