I scheduled my alumni interview in a restaurant.Few questions

Can I order food or just settle with a drink/water?
Should I offer to pay the bill?


I think the main thing to do here is to watch for queues from the interviewer. If you arrive before your interviewer does, I would just get water/drink. If your interviewer wants to order food, then order it with him/her; otherwise, unless you want to talk with your mouth full, don't order anything, at least before the interview is over.

As for who pays, I would still watch for queues from the interviewer. Most likely, you will each end up paying for your own share. I think it would be a nice gesture to offer to pay, but respect the interviewer's wishes.

Anyway, just my $0.02.

Euxeno...thanks for the advice. Given I have my Kellogg and LBS interview in the next few weeks, coupled with fact I work internationally, I may not be able to commit to forking out another 500 bones for a 30 min interview. That said, I am going to flip and coin decide. heads or tails?


I interviewed on campus, generally my view is, I rather lose some bones, then wondering what if for the rest of my life.

To all of those who are still waiting for interview invites, there is hope! A friend of mine received her invitation yesterday, so keep hope alive :-)

I had my interview this week at Ross with a 2nd year student and I think it went pretty well. Here are the questions I was asked:

-Why MBA?
-Why Ross?
-Walk me through your resume
-Tell me about a time you failed and what did you learn from it?
-What clubs would you join?
-What role do you play when you're on a team?
-Explain when you've lead a diverse group of people
-Explain a time you had to work with a difficult person and how you dealt with it.

The interview was 30 minutes exactly. 25 minutes of questions for me, and 5 minutes for me to ask questions. I hope this helps-Good luck!!

Just a quick question-are you required to yank all your outstanding applications if you send in the enrollment form and put down the deposit? My recommenders just got the Sloan generic email and it reminded me that I still had that app out there. I'm not sure but I thought all the yank-your-apps rule only applied to Early Admission/Early Decision.

PS: Congrats to GoBruins :-D


I dont think you are "required" to do anything.. but from an ethical standpoint, probably not that cool. :wink:

Actually I don't think you're required except for ED programs. Intent to attend and deposit is okay. You just lose the deposit.

I was just reading Sojin's blog ( I mainly confined myself to second hand updates and I noticed that her most recent posts mention that 'interview invites will go till the middle of february'. That my dear friends leaves us with about effectively two days worth of notifications ( friday and monday).

Not a very pleasant thought.


Monday is a holiday, so don't expect anything. Although I feel any day before the 20th is still mid feb. So next week should be okay. Plus this year was an exceptional year with tons of people missing essays,gmat, transcripts. I'm sure that delayed the whole process. I think I can count at least 10-12 people this round that had embark problems out of 45 applicants.


Hi,
I called up the admissions at Ross and reached the reception. The lady mentioned that the last date of sending invite is one week before the final decision date. However, Soojin's blog mention two different dates; mid and end of February. There are so many versions, I think the only way is to rely on your inbox and spam folder.
Good luck to those who are waiting.

Just wanted to give you an update. Had my interview on the 13th with an alumni in the area at a local coffee shop. Like many other students we ran through the standard questions of why an MBA, why Ross, and walk me through your resume with some additional leadership style questions here and there. Overall, it was definitely NOT my best interview. We never really seemed to gel and I came away with a pretty bad impression of my performance. Oh well, you live you learn. Now all I can do is hope for the best!

For those that have been to Ann Arbor- any cool restaurants/bars to check out? I'm heading there tomorrow for my interview and will be staying the night.


I've heard good things about Scorekeeper (sports bar) and Dominic's (restaurant). Dominic's may not be open during the winter, though, since it's outdoors.

I stayed at Lamp Post Inn. The staff were very nice and everything, and the room was neat and clean. However, there is anecdotal reason why I wouldn't stay there again. After I had already gone to bed, a couple checked into the room next to mine. And before long, I started hearing "noises" coming from next door. I don't know if this is kosher for the forums, but let's just say that the woman was very "expressive." I turned on the fan, cranked up the white noise app on my iPhone, cursed the paper-thin walls, and regretted so, so much that I did not bring earplugs. Wasn't until after midnight that they had finished their "activities." Granted it was Valentine's Day and all, but argh!!!

Anyway, best of luck with your interview!

I just received an invitation to interview! I submitted 1/4 via the Consortium. I had actually already convinced myself that I wasn't getting in so for those still waiting for an interview, there's still hope! The annoying thing is that they are only giving me until the 2/25 to schedule it.

Did they give you an option of interviewing with an alumni?

updated your status.


Unfortunately, the only options were on-campus or phone interview. Since my *sparkling personality* doesn't really shine through over the phone, I opted for on-campus even though the timing isn't great. Will be interviewing this Friday 2/19. Anyone else going to be there that day?

Is the entire application material (with int report) reviewed before reaching final decision? Or is just pre interview decision ratified with int. report?

I must admit I am very nervous.

Not sure if this helps answer your question but my alumni interview said "The interview can only help your candidacy, it can't hurt it with Ross." Read into that what you will but I took it as "We've got a good idea where you stand, let's see if you can't bump it up if you're borderline."

Unfortunately, that does not add up to the 23% acceptance rate.

I am assuming 50% get interviewed as stated in Soo Jin's blog and to add to 23% overall acceptance rate, those getting admitted should be 46% of those interviewed. Thoughts?



the 23% includes waitlist. His analysis is pretty good, although he should mention that 36% acceptance with another 18% Waitlist.

Also it varies alot per round I believe, since Ross recieved 60% of it's apps in R2 (From Soojin's blog) its hard to tell what really happens per round.

I did street parking. Lots of quarters. But it was fairly easy to find a spot nearby.


stayed at the bell tower, which was not too expensive ($200ish) and left my car with them all day. It was about a 10 min walk across central campus to Ross.

There is actually a parking structure like 3 blocks from the Ross building. it's not campus owned. it's part of the city. Let me know if you need more details than that.

In Ann Arbor now and just got back from Zingerman's. Great suggestion, my sandwich was a little piece of heaven, even though it was 14.50. Also checked out Blimpie Burger, but wasnt that impressed. Overall, Ann Arbor is a pretty cool town, particularly Main Street.

Yeah, Blimpie Burger is a love/hate thing for most people. Just like the SoupNazi in NY. Soup there isn't even better than Hale & Hearty but it's something unique. But all the restaurants in the Main Street area are fantastic. Prickly Pear is amazing Mexican. Seafood & Company is fantastic. The Blue Nile is the best Ethiopian food I have ever had.

Basically, the thing that I like about Ann Arbor is that the "college town" label is kind of a too-modest misnomer. It's really a big city on a small scale. Essentially any form of entertainment that you could get in a big city, you can grab in Ann Arbor -- within walking distance from the school's campus. I've seen other college towns and it's really not the same.


Madison, WI...but I may be a bit biased :-D
