In!!!

Missed the call though and got a vmail and follow up email. Did any of your emails state your scholarship amount? I assume I did not get any scholarship then, bc it was not mentioned in the email or vmail. If Ross offers any sort of financial assistance, I am 100% enrolling over Stern and Cornell.

Good luck to you all.

I am Ted Mosby, Ross is the chick in green and Wolverine Access is Barney Stinson. Lol I talked about HIMYM, The Big Bang Theory and Dexter in my interview. No wonder I was denied .

waitlisted...any statistics available for acceptance rate with waitlisted applicants in ROSS

I spoke to a current student at ross who was also waitlisted. According to him, almost all of the waitlisted candidates last year were admitted.

Don't mean to burst your bubble, but there were 472 applicants, who got wait listed last year... And only 131 of them were accepted. The 27.7% conversion rate is very good, but it's far from being "almost all". I just want to make sure that people remain hopeful but manage their expectations appropriately.

As an R1 waitlister, who got the call in R2, I want to wish the waitlisters all the best. Take advantage of the opportunity to submit an update because I think that's what helped me get in.

I'v registered in Wolverine and founded 'New & Prospective Student Business'.
And there is a Scholarship section there 'View Financial Aid Award Summary'.
As for me, right now it is empty. Does it mean that i have no scholarship at all?

Ulm,
Thank you, but I still cannot find it...I see a menu on top of the page: It says Home Calender Academics Career...and so on
After those, comes other useful information section where I also did not find anything about the group. However, the site has acknowledged me...I can see my name appearing on the right top..

It is in the body of the Student Life page. You will see a picture of Soojin with a 'Welcome' link and right under that there is 'Join the Google Group'

Sorry, didn't realize you were waitlisted. It is an Admitted Students Group that I am referencing so you probably don't have access. I think there is a waitlisted group that you can join, though I'm not sure.

Good Luck!

If you see no scholarship in Financial Info, so there is no scholarship at this moment.

A quick question:
Does Ross have a Grade Non Disclosure policy?

Thanks!

I believe the answer is yes.

It's a No/Yes

However, our grades are not the standard A,B,C,D,F so we do not have GPA's. You can calculate your GPA's if you wish but those aren't your official GPA's. So in effect it is like grade non-disclosure since companies can't ask for your GPA. But firms can ask about individual class grades and/or approximate GPA.

nope... its off campus.. am from India so got it scheduled in one of the cities here.

It seems like there's a little more consistency in the questions asked in on-campus interviews than there is in off-campus, but I'd still focus on the basic stuff. Know your resume inside and out, and be able to answer the obvious questions completely (but concisely); tell me about yourself/why mba?/why Ross?/what will you contribute to the community?/etc. I'd also prepare for behavioral questioning, since you'll probably get at least one of those ('tell me about a time when...').

P.S. explorer21, I will stop crashing the events already.

About the NYC Event, I never told you but when you told me the path (or whatever public transportation system you used to get home) was nowhere near Port Authority. Port Authority was at 42 and 7th and you took me way past that!

You earned yourself an enemy that night my friend!! Haha while I'll never ask you for directions, you are always welcome! Nice to meet you. Good luck with Fuqua and good luck pronouncing it when people ask you where you went to school.

Hahaha. I'm not sucking up. I really do love Ross. I thought we had a deal that you'd be hooking me up with a ticket to a game when I come visit. Speaking of your school, when is your avatar going to change for good anyway?

Can't we at least be frienemies? Haha. I thought you said you were going to Penn Station! Or maybe you were too busy busting my chops to realize that I asked you if you were going to Penn Station or Port Authority.

It was fun but they lay it on THICK, which is to be expected during a sell weekend. Lots of "show me how you're feeling by a round of applause" and "go blue" stuff, which personally got a little tiring by the end. It was a great experience overall, though, and really from a school perspective there was probably no new information that you have missed to this point. I was most interested in meeting my future classmates and current 1st years it seemed like a fun group.

agreed. It did get old by the end. Your dead on. Most people know what resources are available. Nothing earth-shattering but it was interesting to hear about MAP and other things I am interested firsthand. I was also most interested in future classmates the most and MBA1s.

I was going back and forth on schools for a while (3 months) and finally decided which brought on a huge wave of excitement, relief, and enthusiasm so I am probably more biased and excited than Thugly is since he/she is still deciding between some great schools.

Hey everyone,

Congrats to all the admits and Good luck to all waitlisters!

First, I did not get to go to GBR (sounded like a blast though!)

I have a question to throw out there for the fuqua vs ross prospectives

I had lunch with a former colleague (a graduate from Columbia Business who works at one of the prestige MBA employers) who recently tried to emphasize that Fuqua is a far better business school than Ross, and it is getting a better rep and will be a better investment long term. I was under the impression that both schools are, for the most part equals. He told me that Ross is way easier to get into (which I don't believe is true) and it is not as respected as a B school. I think he was just a pompous jerk--(also made some other arrogant type comments). I know rankings wise, both are very similar. However, do you all think that Ross and Fuqua will both always be "more or less" equals or Fuqua's momentum will advance Ross in the near future. Interested in hearing your comments on this matter-

The University of Michigan has one of the largest endowments in the country. A handout I received in a governmental accounting class listed the top 7 as: Harvard, Yale, Texas (mostly land), Princeton, Stanford, MIT, and Michigan. Duke, by comparison, was 15th, which is still outstanding, but trailing by some $2 billion. In addition, Michigan has over 90 programs in the top 10 of their field, which is either 1st or 2nd in the country. There's no question that the current performance of the university combined with its endowment speaks to the long-term future of Michigan as a whole. Speaking specifically to Ross: super amazing facilities, super amazing people, super amazing opportunities. Ross is a place where you can find incredible resources for just about any career, traditional or otherwise. Interdisciplinary work is enormously common, with a vast array of dual degrees to pick from, or even student initiated dual degrees. This all speaks to the fact that you can choose your own, well supported path at Ross. From a student perspective, what more could you ask for? _________________ ME: PROFILE | CPA: BEC AUD FAR REG | CMA: ONE TWO bitly bundles: mba rankings | mba programs GMAT Club Premium Membership - big benefits and savings Current Student Joined: 05 Aug 2008 Posts: 1262 Schools: Ross 2012 WE 1: 5 Years at Fortune 50 Company in Manufacturing Followers: 17 Kudos [?]: 165 [1] , given: 20 Re: Ross 2012 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] 20 Apr 2012, 05:30 1 This post received KUDOS Yankee121 wrote: Hey everyone, Congrats to all the admits and Good luck to all waitlisters!

However, do you all think that Ross and Fuqua will both always be "more or less" equals or Fuqua's momentum will advance Ross in the near future. Interested in hearing your comments on this matter- I will try to answer this question as objective as possible. I think with these forums everyone is fixated on the 5% difference of schools rather than the 95% commonalities. Having kept in touch with many of the GMATClub Admit class of 2009 and 2010, my opinion is that most schools in the same range offer the same opportunities upon graduation. This is not to say certain schools won't have some ultra-elite recruiter that recruits there such as a PE firm that only hires out of H or a VC firm that only hires out of S. But honestly, if you didn't have an IB, IVY (H,P,Y undergrad) + S undergrad, you're not going. So I will keep my 95% the same. One of the post says where you graduate 3-5 years from now doesn't matter, I would say: WHERE YOU GRADUATE FROM DOES NOT MATTER ONCE YOU GET A FULL TIME OFFER. PERIOD. Basically if you're a Wharton - BCG, you're BCG. If you're Kellogg, Accenture, you're accenture. If you're Booth - Apple, you're Apple. Your MBA only matters for that first job (in prestige). I am not saying that it will not help with recruiting if there's an alum from the program, but the network is random. 50% of the BBA class at Ross goes into IB, with the rest going into consulting or Fortune 500. If you went by luck of interviewing with alum, then you should eliminate Stanford (240 MBA/Yr), Haas(200), Anderson (300), and any new programs like Yale. The things you should consider rather is what area you want to be in both Location and Career. I've talked to GC people at Duke, there is definitely less consulting companies that recruit at Duke. On the same time, Ross has fewer finance company. Same with location, the biggest locations for Ross graduates would be Chicago, New York/New Jersey, SF/SJ/Oakland, Seattle, Minnesota, Detroit. Duke is mostly in the northeast/east coast. (NOTE: This is less objective, more subjective) You should also consider the type of environment. Ross is known has being friendly and less competitive, a couple parts that I believe is the reason for this is, we essentially have no grades (since we have no GPA's), the class is fairly diverse in goals, 25% go into marketing, consulting, GM and we have a high group of non-profit/dual degree in sustainability. It makes recruiting a lot less competitive (in relative business school sense) when not everyone single person is going for the same 3 jobs. I disagree with the momentum thing, since it works both ways and it is completely too 1 dimensional in thinking. If you go off the momentum theory, Duke may some day be better than Wharton. But we both know this is unlikely. Typically what happens is schools oscillate, if you look at Anderson, Columbia and Haas, they have had interesting last 20-30 years. Columbia at one point wasn't even an elite school in the 80's because of scandals, Haas and Anderson move up and down depending if each and west coast is in or not. This is basically how USNews and BW sell papers, if schools never move, then there's no point in publishing the "MBA Edition" every year for$12.99. Take undergrad for example, Harvard moves up and down and up and down every 3 years, I don't think the school changes at all in that time, but hey that's how you sell papers.

Another example from undergrad rankings (which is more pertinent to you) is again what area of focus you are in. In UG rankings, MIT and Cal-Tech is under H,P,Y. But if you're doing science and engineer, there's no way someone who pick P,Y and probably not H over MIT. Harvard barely is a strong school in engineering (ranked 20's). It's the problem of having a linear scale. It is very much the same in MBA, Ross does not have a strong IB program, we don't send that many into IB, and we don't have that many people interested in IB to start with. At the same time, Duke has fewer consulting/marketing companies than Ross. But again this is talking about that final 5%. I know Ross people in IB, and Duke people at consulting/marketing.
