Fair enough then. Acceptance will probably be lower this year, given their stunning yield last year. Which is not the bestest news ever.

Got a question about the resume for the interview. When I first saw the interview invite letter, it didn't say anything about the format the resume needed to be in, so I sent them a PDF. But after registering, the confirmation email said that I should email them my resume in Word format. I haven't heard back from them asking me for a different format, so I'm hoping it's OK. Anyone else come across this?


I sent in a PDF with my original signup and then also noticed the word stipulation on the confirmation email. I was doing a phone interview less than 24h later so I just sent a second email with a word version of my resume attached. I figured it was better to send two resumes than risk calling for the interview and having the interviewer not be able to access my resume.

I rented a car as well, though I had driven from Chicago.There were a bunch of hotels out by the Friday, though I used points.

On second thought, my advice is entirely unapplicable and worthless.

Hey all, when I visited Ross in the fall I used Michigan Flyer to go from DTW to Ann Arbor (www.michiganflyer.com). I think it's only $15 each way and drops you off at a hotel in A2. It's probably 2 or 3 miles from campus, but you can probably grab a taxi or get on the bus nearby. Just another option for anyone debating the transportation issue.

I got a mail from adcom today requesting for Proof of my undergrad degree awarded??

Like all of you i am surprised too... i have my transcript attached and wonder what else the Adcom is looking for....

On hearing about ppl who got interview calls before the completion of application (Request for stuff like GMAT score, Essay etc...) i am now really worried if the calls go out without the applications being completely read.....
IITM stand no chance at all then.....
With such incidents on a rise i dont know whether to be happy that they are yet to evaluate my application or thay have already read my application... didnt extend invite.... and want a document to complete my application and close my file......

Any take???


The application instructions (I printed them off seperately and then followed along for each section as I was filling in the app, something I would strongly recommend) stated that if you attended a foreign undergraduate/graduate institution that you must scan in your diploma in addition to providing formal transcripts. I went to undergrad in Canada so I figured it applied to me-called my parents up, had them scan in the diploma and uploaded it under the transcripts. I kept to the KB restrictions for the transcript. It was a huge pain, mainly because diplomas are gigantc and in latin (from my school). Plus, when I went home, it looked like my parents put it back in all helter skelter and crooked, which sort of hits me at an OCD level.

I would highly recommend printing off the app directions for schools seperately because some of them have nitpicky details like this. Ross was the only school that asked for a diploma scan, though. As an example, some schools have a page + word limit, if you read the instructions carefully.

I got a missing document request too. (And I was happy that they needed it to review my app :shock: )
I guess system error. :(

I did, for all of my interviews. First, just to be on the safe side and secondly, because the numbers on my transactional portfolio are constantly increasing and I figured, what the heck, they're not going to slam me for giving them the most up-to-date information.

I interviewed, but do not know the answer to your question. I would definitely call the admissions office or reply back to the email asap. If you cannot do an on campus / alumni interview, you may be able to do a phone interview with an adcom.

finish interview this afternoon.

He gave me a stressful test. Kept asking me questions one by one. I think I didn't convince him.

Good luck everyone!

Received an invite to interview on Monday and scheduled it for Feb 15. I also had some issues with missing GMAT scores, but I guess my app was completed.

Please add me to the roll call for R2. Thanks!

To quote Soojin in her blog (my emphasis in bold):

01/29/2010
One of the pieces of information you'll find in the transcript is that your professionalism and judgment while you're on the waitlist are part of our decision process. This goes for applicants too. We know you're interested in Ross by virtue of your application to us. There's no need to send us emails (or insist on meeting with us) to remind us of that fact.

01/20/2010
R2 Interviews: interview invitations go out on a weekly basis and will continue to go out through mid-February. Given that we review applications before we send out the invites, it will take some time for us to get through all of them. We appreciate your patience.

Given those two statements, I would not e-mail them at this time just because you haven't heard anything. Lots of people haven't heard anything.

Just got my interview invitation! Yay!

Er... apparently I only have 13 days (it says I must do my interview by Feb. 17th). That's kind of short notice to make plans to get to Ann Arbor from SE US.
