Does anyone know how to join Google Group? Or as some said before, Ross Adcom will send e-mails enabling access to the group?

You can ask for permission to join the group through your personal Ross' page. They will add manually, I think.

An additional question:
How can waitlisted applicants send additional recommendation letters ? Is there an option to do that ?

Perhaps you can try and convince ISB to give you a 1 year deferral. I think you need to write a very convincing letter stating a really strong reason, also external influence (A senior alum etc) can help. If Ross works out - Great or else you can still go to ISB next April.

Well thats a good advice considering i still graduate 2014! but as it stands im sure ISB will not provide a deferal and to b frank career wise I willnot gain anything this year by staying back and working an extra year!

At the end Ross is AWESOME!! but ISB aint that bad.... I guess just need to get my priorities and head straight and take a decision in the next 2 days! :(

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..

For those admitted wanting a timeline on things (when you need to accept and put deposit, etc.), there is a checklist on the student life section:

http://www.bus.umich.edu/MyiMpact/StudentLife.aspx

On the right under "Take a Look", look for "Master Checklist for Admitted Students"

I think you need to work out a strategy to get that deferral. Its difficult but not impossible (pm me and perhaps we can think of a strategy). I think you should also consider the ROI and costs. ISB is approximately 1/3 the cost of the Ross MBA. While ROI figures for Ross are great, economy is absolutely impossible to predict and and an ISB MBA gets you back into the market quicker.

The real difference is the MBA experience and i think this is where Ross wins. The international classmates, world class facilities and professors and an unbeatable alumni network. Ross is an growing brand in the emerging markets so by the time we graduate, we might benefit from such a scenario.

I understand how a difficult choice you have. Good luck. Remember, there is no wrong choice. Maktub as they say it in Arabic :)

I am an applicant from India and was waitlisted in R2 after interview. My GMAT Score was 700 Q 51 V 33

Do you think, taking TOEFL will have any impact on my application or should I rather focus on other professional or personal achievements for the update during this waitlist period. Please suggest

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'


Thanks...However I think I do not have access or limited access for MyiMpact site...I could not find Soojin's picture...Perhaps, the Adcom sends to possible waitlisted applicants their access info which I have not received yet. Possible ? Is it a good idea to contact Ross per e-mail ?

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!


Thank you fincham, at last I got my invitation to the group from Ross...
Now, the hard part begins :)))

TOEFL doesnt test your verbal skills the same way as GMAT does. It is used more to judge if you can communicate and understand in an English speaking environment. I'd say focus on later at this point of time (if you do not want to retake your GMAT. Good TOEFL is not an alternative to a bad GMAT Verbal score).

Hope that helps. Good luck!

Congrats!! Now you can say no to Ross and Haas :)

btw, how much is the consortium fellowship for Tuck? Is the confortium fellowship the same amount for every school?
