I'm IN! WOW! This is surreal. 8 hours back I got the UCLA-Anderson admit and now I get a mail from Kelly informing about my admit and how because of the time difference she could not call me up personally. It's a great way to start a day!

Some info about me:

Indian/IT/Male
GMAT 730 Q49/V42
Career Focus: Digital Entertainment & Tech.

Good luck to all the other R1 applicants.

I am IN too! Received an email - not call - since I am an international applicant.
The instructions stated the need to confirm the receipt of the email. For fellow international applicants, any advice on how do I confirm that? Do i reply to the sender or I need to do that via the friend of umich site (but my status is not updated, i presume it wld only happen on 15 Jan @ 12 EST?).

Any R2 interview calls yet?


Yeah there have been (see posts on the last 2 pages). I'm still waiting.....


Lol .. with all the admit posts, missed the interview call post somehow .. thanks !

Ross was my first application. Dunno how good my app is :(
I really want to know whether I was doing it right with the essays. Hence, the eager wait for the interview call.

Had made a nasty grammatical error in a Ross essay.
But still being optimistic :-D

I just checked my status and it said I was waitlisted.

I declined due to my admission elsewhere. So I hope this opens a slot for someone else out there.

Best of luck.

Ari123, while I agree Ross doesn't appear as sensitive to wanting to be loved, i think they really want you to understand the school and prove you did your homework. I think the 30-line text box asking how you've interacted with the school demonstrates that.

It is very hard to tell what the schools actually like/ look for. Or even what they do with our apps once we submit them. The only thing we know that if you got an admit then whatever you did worked. By the way in that 30-line box I just wrote 5-6 lines. I just wrote the name and location of the event I had attended. What did you write? Just curious.

At Ross event I attended, former member of student adcom said he / she was "annoyed" by or "did not like "those who did not interview on campus (if no prior visitation and clearly had means to do so). take this with a grain of salt, but i'm definitely going to interview on campus if i get an interview.

Congratulations !! When had you submitted your app ?


Submitted Jan 4th, but one recommender didn't submit until Jan 5th.


In that case, I think they're reviewing the apps 'Last-In-First-Out'. The first wave of invites had only those who submitted on the last day, i.e, 5th Jan.

I had submitted mine on the 3rd. Hoping for the best :)

I'm not so sure. I also submitted January 4, but I got an interview invite on January 13. Maybe there is some other rhyme/reason?
