I just had on campus interview yesterday and overall, I thought it went fairly well

It was with a 2 year MBA student and the overall tone was relaxed. He took extensive notes but also interacted with me and asked follow up questions. It lasted roughly 30 minutes.

The main 6 questions he asked were:

-Walk through resume
-Why MBA
-Why Ross
-Why now
-Why would your peers want you as a classmate
-What clubs I would participate in

Now the wait begins…

Any comments on Ross's Rd-1 result: when it starts releasing the result? Does it send the result on the decision day (i.e 15 jan this year) or the result goes on the rolling basis.

Question for essay #1, do you have to answer the question in the order it is asked? Or can you write one 500 words essay to address all the subquestions?


I think the important thing is to answer each part clearly and not muddle them up together... They shud clearly be able to see that u have answered each one of their ques. Though the order shouldn't matter but I wud prefer to stick to it coz the order, I believe, makes sense.

Last year, they started giving out calls on 12th jan and continued till 14th. Those who had to check online were either waitlisted or dinged... There might be exceptions though.

Finished off my Ross interview. Fairly standard stuff.

Describe Yourself?
Current Job Role and Responsibilities
Major Achievements at job
why MBA? Why Ross?
why now?
Professional Situation when i screwed up completely
LT/ST goals

Focused a lot on Why Ross apart from MAP, Action Based Learning, Wolverine fund.
the interviewer is an entrepreneur and runs his own shop. so when i said Ross coz of Action Based Learning, he asked me to use that and tell him few things missing/ nor proper in his office.

Overall the exp was great and the interview was completely conversational

Best of luck to guys interviewing and for those waiting for the calls.

I guess I am the only one still waiting. I thought my application was strong enough to at least get an invite. This is hard! :|

As you're considering what makes Ross unique, I wanted to let you know about the Social Venture Fund, a new addition to the other two student-run venture capital funds on campus (Wolverine Venture Fund and Frankel Commercialization Fund).

The SvF just launched and will invest in socially-driven for-profit enterprises. The SvF wants to demonstrate that mission-driven companies can both be profitable and provide transformative solutions to societal needs. The goal of SvF is to create a marketplace for social impact investing and educate the next generation of business leaders to invest in and manage innovative, profitable, and sustainable enterprises.

The SvF is the only student-run fund of its kind though there are other student-run funds that invest in non-profits or provide microfinancing. All 3 funds at Ross count as course credit and accept applicants at the beginning of the year and sometimes mid-year. You can read about the fund here - http://www.zli.bus.umich.edu/vc_pe/svf_overview.asp. If you have more questions about SvF, feel free to PM me.

+1 for your thoughtfulness... And being a part of a socially driven for-profit enterprise myself, I really like Ross for its social conscious...
