Just got back from a trip to Ann Arbor....

I arrived Tuesday night, and scouted out the admissions office as well as the building. The building is really incredible. I don't think pictures really do it justice.

The next morning I had my interview at 8am with a second year. It was a pretty laid back interview, with all the basic questions, Why MBA, Why now, Why Ross, and a few teamwork questions. He left a lot of time for me to ask questions which was nice.

After the interview I met up with the VIP group. Again, we were able to ask more questions to students and I really believe we got candid and objective responses. We then went on a tour of the building (again, the building is awesome...I love everything about it) after which we were able to attend our class. I decided to attend a strategy growth class rather than one of the core classes. Honestly, I could have sat there for hours...the professor was awesome, and I loved the subject matter.

Overall it was a great experience. I have to say that you really do have to come to Ann Arbor and visit the school to get a good feel for what this place is about and to meet the students...

you should definitely talk to students on the frankel fund at Ross. Among other industries Frankel invests in cleantech startups so students on that team get great exposure to dd and emerging cleantech tehonologies. Pm me if you'd like to speak to any students on the cleantech team on frankel.

Hi,

I have been admitted to Kellogg and Ross and trying to make a decision between the two. My functional interest is in pursuing venture capital or general management in the clean technology industry. I am also interested in having a strong brand that has a widespread recognition within the U.S. and globally.

Would appreciate it if the forum can weigh in on the choice with their reasoning.

Thanks.

1 question:
is there any one who got 'the genuine' missing application items mail from Ross (excluding the people, who were mis-communicated by embark issue) and got invited for interview?

I actually missed reporting my GMAT scores to them, but they received it many days ago.
So I am trying to judge that have they put all the actual defaulters at the last of the list? :suspect

I surely hope the answer is "YES" :-D


I just found this forum...please add me to the roll call for round 2.

I received an interview invite when they first started going out and I interviewed on campus on January 26th. AFTER I had already interviewed, I received a request for "proof of undergraduate degree awarded" on January 29th. I thought this was very odd because nowhere in the application does it say that anything other than a copy of your undergraduate transcript is necessary for U.S. applicants - and my transcript clearly shows my full name, degree awarded and date earned. After emailing another copy of my transcript, I was told that a copy of my diploma would be needed so I sent that this past week. Are they requiring a copy of diplomas for everyone?

Had a 45 min interview with an alum today which went quite well I think.

typical questions:
- why mba
- why now
- why ross
- unique cultural experiences that you bring to ross
- example of how you dealt with an underperforming teammate
- most difficult feedback you received
- what makes you stand out amongst the numerous strong candidates ross gets?

He put me at ease straightaway and gave me positive feedback to many of my answers. Fingers crossed!

Good luck to all you guys!

Actually reading the stats on Ross, it interviews less than most schools. Only about 40% while chicago interviews 50%. It also has an amazing yield, even better than wharton.

My reasoning for why this forum has higher percentage is because of the population here. While I believe this forum has lower than average admits for Harvard/Wharton, we do have higher than average to kellogg/chicago/ross. That is because we're NOT a mirror image of the applying population. If you notice people's profiles, compared to typical application profiles, we have very few M/B/B or IB/HC/PE firms, the traditional feeders to H/W. Those career paths typically have special information sessions on schools to apply/how to apply and several of their peers would be applying at the same time.

My feeling about this forum is that most actually don't have any coworkers who are applying. So we rely on others for feedback so we come to this site. This forum has a very high number of engineers/science backgrounds, some mid-tier finance and accounting/counsulting firms. This profile would be a big hit with schools like Ross which usually have a very large portion of their students coming from engineering/mid-tier consulting.


My personal opinion.

There's so much conflicting information on the percentage of applicants that Ross interviews. According to the most recent BW stats, Ross interviews 55%. At some point in the recent past, at least according to Montauk's most recent book, Ross was interviewing nearly all applicants. I think I remember seeing a recent post on Soojins blog (could be totally making this up) where she might have suggested less than the 55% figure. And GoBruins has that 40% figure from somewhere, which I'm sure is just as legit as the others.

Very hard to pin down exactly how much to read into the interview invite besides the fact that you're one step closer to admittance.



I got the 40% figure from BW for the previous year, where the acceptance rate was 19%, matriculation was 70%, and the interview rate was 40%.

The Ross Interview

Last week marked the official start of our Round 1 interviews. Many applicants who have come to campus to do their interviews have gotten to witness the beautiful fall weather we’ve been enjoying in Ann Arbor. Invitations have been going out daily since the end of October. If you haven’t received an invitation yet, don’t fret. Invitations will continue to go out through early December. We’re aiming to complete Round 1 interviews by December 9th. We expect to invite about 50% of applicants to interview. Not all will be admitted, but all who are admitted will have been interviewed.

You should actually look for "Application Interview for MBA", not Ross Admissions, ha. But don't worry there were a TON of open interview slots when I scheduled mine, so hopefully thats a sign that many more invites are going out.

does anyone know if end Feb is the last day? Do they send out mid-decisions?

BTW...please add me to the roll call...


Hey tohor
there is no mid decision date. In R1 some people got invites very late. So there is no last date.

Hi All,

I also got an interview invite today. I will be interviewing on campus sometime before 19th. And most importantly, I want to tell anyone who is still waiting that I am sure you will get interview invites. I have pretty vanilla profile and I got an interview so I am sure you guys will get it too. Don't lose hope!

Neither did I. I actually emailed them a while ago and they said they'd send me a confirmation email soon. I never got the confirmation email but I got an interview invite instead, so I can't complain!!!

i totally agree with you and as i told i am also on the same boat.... i would hate to give up till Ross explicitly tells me..... wish you the best....

Just to let you know i was just analyzing based on users inputs.... and in no way do i want to discourage you or disappoint you.......

I hope i get an invite too :)


dude, what I believe is whosoever actually had some stuff missing has been put at the last in the evaluation list, so as to move on with other apps, hence I feel ours will be getting read now!


I hope for an invite for all waiting!



I agree.....

But as a matter of fact I, You, class2012 and two other ppl got this mail regarding missing application matl on 30 jan 2010.
out of five of 2 have reported interview calls this MOnday (08 feb 2010)
and the other two that is I and you have got this application completed mail today.
Just to make my point clearer the two who though got the application matl missing mail on 30jan directly got an interview invite on 08 feb and didnt recieve any application complete mail


I have been a silent reader like many others on this forum but thought I'd mention that I received an incomplete application mailer since they were not able to retrieve my GMAT scores on Jan 22nd. I finally cleared the issue over a call on Jan 26th and received an interview invite today. I never received any application complete mail though.

Good luck to everyone.

This is definitely an optimistic bunch :-D . I don't know if you caught my earlier post in the midst of all this interview invite/non-invite analysis, but I had actually already interviewed and then I received a missing document email a week later. Anyways, I have a question...U.S. applicants are not required to submit "official" transcripts for admissions decisions to be made are they (scanned documents are acceptable)? The only "official" document that needs to be submitted is the GMAT score, right? I recently got an email from the school saying that they had updated my file with my "unofficial" documents, but they did not confirm that my file was "complete." Has anyone had a similar experience?
