Is it really important ? I am 95% sure that I won't be able to make it... with the Visas, getting time off..



Likewise. Work has been a killer and not sure if boss will look too kindly for additional days off.

It is my opinion that the weekend is important from the standpoint of creating a connection to the school and a one stop shop for getting things taken care of if you didn't visit like understanding where you can live, seeing the building and talking to financial aid reps in person. I do not think the world will end if you cannot go, but I would arrive in Ann Arbor a week or so earlier than others to get all of these things squared away if you are unable to do so from afar.

I have just created the thread for admitted students. I did not find it in a search, but I hope I did not create a duplicate.

On that note, has a Ross 2011 Admits thread been made as well?

@waitlisters, keep being hopeful! Things usually will work out for the best in the long run.

hi there

admitted students: do you already know about what financial aid/merit scholarships you have received or will it be part of the admissions binder that the school will send by snail-mail?

thanks

Hey vyomneeraj, what is the google group that is not from Ross? I think joining the Facebook group would raise all kinds of flags as I have some work buddies as friends. Since we will get invited to join the official google group today, do you think the unofficial one would survive?

hey, we dont have an unofficial google group for ross admits. the official group is pretty active so there is no point for one. just wait a while. as soon as you log onto the admitted students portal, you'll get the link for the google group. dont worry abt it...

Waitlisted without interview.

How many of you have been waitlisted without interview?
What does it mean to be waitlisted without interview?

if you're WL without an interview, then you may be invited to interview in the subsequent round. you're basically moved to the next round.

Same here. Pessimistically, I assume it just means we have lower % chance of getting in from the WL...


Or you can look at at it this way: the AdCom like you enough to keep you on the WL without interview...and you get a chance to really impress them with your interview ;)

Well, you're already in so that's the most important thing. :lol:

If you're in a big city, you can meet up with other admits around your area plus there's mtrek, so still some chances to meet your classmates besides just gbr. I think the only thing you'd miss out on is maybe finding an apartment and/or potential roommates.

Hi there! I have noticed that I am not in the rollcall... Admitted in R2.

Has anyone been able to check the financial award through the Wolverine Access interface? I was told I was awarded some, but it says 0 when I check online.

I have a bunch of friends at Ross now, and they tell me although you should try and make it to GBR, its ok if you miss it. There is another event in June, primarily for the late round admits and waitlisters, that you can attend. I think that one is just called Blue Rendevous(sp?).

Nope. I was waitlisted yesterday. I accepted the waitlist offer online. No followup emails.
