Just a quick FYI. Per Soojin's newest blog, "The application for Fall 2011 will be available in mid-late summer. So for those of you who are considering applying for next fall, I'd recommend that you check our website for a link to the new application around August 1."

While it's still early in the application process, the summer is a great time to find and chat with Ross students scattered around the US (and globally) for summer internships. There just might be one in your city!

There are specific cities listed on the Ross website where students have volunteered to host cafe chats to speak with admitted and prospective students.
http://www.bus.umich.edu/admissions/mba ... udents.htm

Domestic Café Chats
Illinois
Maine
Massachusetts
Michigan
Minnesota
Missouri
New York
Texas
Washington

International Café Chats
China
Germany
India
Israel
Nigeria
Peru
Singapore
Taiwan
Thailand
Vietnam

There are many more students not listed on the site who would probably be happy to speak as well. Tracking them down takes a bit more effort, but I'm sure you're all resourceful and creative enough to find us :).

Hi all,

I'm thinking of applying for Ross as well.

Just curious, how do US people see Ross as a business school? What's its uniqueness to you? I see its ranking is dropping recently but in Asia it still has a name.

Not sure why you think Ross's ranking has been dropping. It actually moved up one place in the latest US News rankings, and it's ranked #5 by Business Week. In any case, what appealed to me about Ross are its team-oriented culture, its emphasis on sustainability, strong GM reputation, and action-based learning (MAP). I will be able to tell you more once classes start, but those are the things that drew me when I was applying. Good luck!
