The Wisconsin game was insane. We ran more plays in the first half than we gained total yards, turned the ball over 5 times, and went into halftime down 19-0. Then the second half we came out blazing hot, scored 27 straight points and ended up winning 27-25 with 13 seconds remaining after stopping Wisconsin on a 2-point conversion attempt. I nearly lost my voice from yelling so much.


Glad you didn't come visit last weekend, that game was depressing.

Thanks buddy! I've spent today working on Darden - Holy crap, are their essays rough! Makes Ross' look like a piece of cake. As an fyi, take a look at Darden's questions in case you apply there in rd 2. The sooner you start thinking about them the better, they are BRUTAL.

hey I'm not sure what the Ross process is but I'd say do write in to the admissions office and find out if ur recs can come in a bit late. I know other schools (cornell for sure) do give some leeway on the reco front.

All the best.

Thanks for the thoughts guys. My recommendor is a great guy but had some personal issues pop-up at the end of last week and over the weekend. He assured me that he'd get it in today.

I called Ross and spoke to a very friendly woman in the admissions office. She said that it shouldn't be an issue - all of the applications haven't been downloaded yet and that if there is something missing they'll send an email with a request to fix it.

Glad to hear it.

I know quite a few apps say "Deadline for completed applications is ....". It makes you think the deadline is do-or-die, but from what I've read, a lot of adcoms are pretty flexible if it's something out of your control.

Confirmed that my recommendation has been received through the Ross site...best of luck to all as we wait for interview invites. Looks like the first ones went out about a week after the R1 deadline last year, although the deadline was Nov. 1 first then.

I heard from the associate director admissions that it could take 2-3 weeks for them to review, so we will have email for interview after that. The latest will be somewhere around mid Dec (1 month before announcement). Other than that, no clue how the interview is. Anyone has any exp with that?

Ross Admissions Wants to Hear From You!

Are you kidding me?!?!?! Why on earth would they be so cruel as to send anything with this message title except for an interview invite???

Here was the rest of the email that I'm sure many others received:

We want to hear from you! At Ross, we value the input of our applicants. Our goal is to better understand what drove you to apply to our program. Please take a few minutes to complete a short survey.  
Please note your answers to the survey remain strictly anonymous and cannot be tied to your application. Please complete the survey by November 13th for an opportunity to provide us with your feedback.

Thank You,
Ross Admissions Team
