I know its not the end. I probably got spoiled getting my Cornell invite the first day but man this process wears on you. Ups and downs.

Yes..Got that interview email finally !!!!!

Guys, irrespective of whether I get in or not, and no doubt that I will give my best shot during the intw, it really feels good to get this email. Its good to know that a top school, which is selective in call applicants thinks your app is worthy to call you for an intw.

To all those, who haven't yet received the email, its on the way for you !!

The interview does not mention your interview date. It asks you to register between a time period. My email said that I can register between Nov 3rd to Nov 28th. My Tepper intw is on 17th. And Ann Arbor is a 5 hr drive from Pittsburgh. So, I picked a slot of 18th Nov (Tuesday).

I really think that adcoms are reviewing the apps in a random order and sending out those emails. Be hopeful - Keep your fingers crossed.

Although it says that interviewing in person at Ross, over the phone or with an alum makes no difference, I'm wondering if that is quite true. I'd love to go to Ann Arbor and interview in person, but my particular job situation right now would make that very, very difficult. How much more do you guys think an in-person interview is worth?

Certainly, nothing extraordinary really !
I just did not want to duplicate the information in this thread, so here's the link where all of us (2009 applicants in this forum) have posted their brief profiles.

I think if you haven't visited campus yet, interviewing in-person would show Ross that you're serious about their program. This could help your chances slightly. However, I don't think it would hurt you if your work schedule prevents you from making the trip to Ann Arbor.

I plan on requesting a phone and/or alumni interview myself.

Even thought I haven't gotten an interview invite yet, this was my thinking to. If you've never been to the campus, you could probably score a few points during the interview by talking about the classes you visited or the people you met. If you do it by phone, commenting on your previous visit probably makes your "why Ross" carry more weight.

But I think they are being honest when they say a phone interview is weighed the same as an in person interview.

If you can, go to campus. Why leave anything to chance, and a what-if on the table? If you can, go visit and interview on campus. The opportunity to attend a class, and meet directly with AdCom members will help you make your decision, and hopefully help them make theirs as well.

To those waiting on an invite, I am sure this is just the first batch! Worry not, your interview invite is being written. I submitted my app about a week and half before the due date, so they may just be going down the list.

Best of luck to everyone!

If you go up a few replies, you'll see that some people that got interview invites submitted in Sept, and others right on the deadline. It doesn't look like they are following any particular order.

Last year a bunch of the Indian guys didn't get invites until almost Dec. Many of them got in, so don't stress!

Btw, does Ross send some kind of a reject letter? Or do we have to wait until the notification deadline to find out?

PS: Don't know if it is a stupid question, but it is my first app season. So pls bear with me. :-)
