To Ross applicants... be sure to keep a look out for messages in your spam folder. Oddly, I've never had an important email go to that folder, except now, in the midst of the biggest waiting game of my life, my invitation to interview at Ross got tucked away as spam yesterday. The invite came from rossinterview@umich.edu so you might want to add that to your "safe" list asap.

Good luck everyone!


Congrats on your interview invite to Ross!

Ross did in fact release the first wave of consortium interviews yesterday (I believe another wave will come). In your invite, you will get details about interviewing on campus for Constortium Interview day on February 15 and attending the BBSA conference over the weekend. If possible, I would highly recommend staying for the BBSA conference for the weekend. It is a great way to meet Ross Alumni, current students and your future classmates. I had a blast last year, enjoyed the panels and many of the people I met there became my good friends even before Orientation Program and school. Good luck everyone!

Also, Im pretty jealous that you guys will have orientation program in New Orleans this year!

Yeah, a bit inequitable for sure to those who worked hard to get it in for round 1 (I was round 2 applicant myself), but I remember one of the consortium schools (won't say which one) telling people at a diversity event that submitting earlier doesn't at all ensure your application gets reviewed first. It only guarantees you an earlier decision deadline -- they conceded that your app unfortunately can (and quite frequently does) get buried. I imagine that there are other schools with this same philosophy.

I am 100% with you on this ... despite having heard back from all my schools...I believe all consortium applicants should have just one round. In my opinion , most schools want to weigh the overall applicant-pool before making decision and so just having all submit at the same time might be a better option.

On the bright side though, a delayed invite is often better than a quick ding

I hope your frustration wasn't spurred by my post... I didn't state which round... I did apply cgsm 1 though. But yeah it seems as though quite a few schools don't do anything with Round 1 applications til they receive all Round 2 applications as well which is a real bummer... for instance I know this to be the case with Michigan and UT. I still haven't heard a peep from Anderson. I also applied to Yale, but no interview invitation yet although I know some invitations have been sent. I'll interview at Haas during Super Saturday next weekend... Haas actually does process cgsm round 1 applications and starts sending invites before the round 2 deadline.

Its different for every school. If youre applying to only schools that bundle everything into the second round (like Ross) then you might as well wait for the second deadline before submitting. On the other hand if you are applying to schools that dont bundle, which is most member schools, then you do get responses back earlier.

No, you didn't start this frustration.... the reverse reverse prejudice did.. haha j/k. It will be worth it once I get the fellowship but they do make us sweat. I think all schools should just get on same page. But you're right, some schools want to see what the 2nd round is going to look like. Especially, if that school is not your #1 and/or you don't have a 720+ gmat

Hi Everyone, hope you're all doing well! Funny enough, I've been following this thread for months just to try get as much info as I can for the application process. Now that we're playing the painful waiting game, it just occurred to me that instead of just reading everyone else's posts, maybe I should sign up and join the conversation.

So brief background, I graduated from undergrad in 2010 with a 3.2 GPA. I worked full time as a waiter through the last three years of college after performing quite poorly in my first year and losing scholarships (live and learn I suppose?). I actually chose to stay in school an extra year and did a Masters in Accounting. Graduated in the top 10% of my class there with a 3.9 GPA, so hopefully that may slightly offset my undergrad GPA. I got a 720 on the GMAT (Q 47, V 42). My biggest concern is that I will only have 2 years of full time WE, which is obviously well below average. Anyone else here in a similar boat in that regard? I applied to three schools through the CGSM: 1) Haas, 2) Anderson, 3)Marshall. Going to Haas would be a dream, but maybe it's reaching a bit? I'm honestly not sure about Anderson or Marshall either. They're both much more realistic than Haas, and I think I have at-least a shot, but I keep worrying about the WE.

I submitted my application for R2 on January 5th, and it was released to the schools on January 16th. I received confirmation from Haas earlier this week, but haven't heard anything from Anderson or Marshall. I've spent a bit of time looking through the posts from the forum last year. Last year, Anderson never sent out confirmation emails prior to interview invitations. I'm not sure if that will change this year, but based on this, I'm not too concerned about the lack of follow up from Anderson. I'm not sure about Marshall though, I did not find anything definitive. But it's also 2AM and I'm tired, so I will look more closely later. It seems like the interview timeline for these three schools for R2 applicants will end up being towards the end of February. Does this seem about right to anyone else who has done any diligence on those three? Anyway, I'm nervously excited about this entire process, but am hoping for the best.

Anyone else doing Ross and are you going to the consortium interview day or just doing a regular interview? Anyone heard from Darden? Just curious about the timing of the different schools

Same experience here with Darden -- I applied to 4 consortium schools, and they are the only one I haven't heard from ... I haven't even gotten confirmation that they received my application.

First time poster here.

Does anyone know if applying to the consortium affects your ability to receive merit scholarships from the individual schools? Considering that merit decisions are released before the consortium decision, is it possible to receive both? Specifically I'm interested in Kenan Flagler.

So I have yet to receive an email from the Consortium, stating that my application has been forwarded to the schools I applied to (they are waiting to receive my official test scores)... but I received an interview invite from Kelley last weekend. Does anyone have any idea how this process works? How does Kelley know that I applied, if the Consortium has not forwarded my application?


hey Soniaj, i am also applying to Kelley. Did you get any email from Kelley saying they got your applicatoin? I also got an interview invite but I did not get any email saying they received my application.

It doesn't sound like anyone has gotten an interview with Texas yet, which is weird since the Texas forum is saying that R2 invites are over and that R3 invites have been going out. Does anyone have any insight on this? I have gotten confirmation that they have my app, but haven't heard anything more...
