Hey mustin - not quite yet, although I am strongly leaning towards one. I am doing some hard core research on all the programs and talking to lots of students/alum, and will decide pretty soon.

I am curious about this situation:

Waitlisted first, then interviewed?? I think it is different from waitlisted after an interview?
Mann, this MBA process is sooo vague :)))

I'm a Ross R2 admit from India and would like some guidance from current students on a) Employment data for internationals (across industries preferably) and b) work-permit/visa restrictions for internationals. I'm unable to make much sense of the data on the website.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, please point me to the right place in case it isn't.

I'd contact OCD directly for that info.

I will try to take a stab at this but I don't know if I can truly answer you question. The information provided here: http://www.bus.umich.edu/EmploymentData ... erview.htm shows that prior years about 80% has offers by graduation which seems about right for this current year, though the general impression is that this year was better than last year in recruitment most position.

As for industry breakdown I do not have that information but I think the answer to part b) should partly answer you question. Internationals who need sponsorship are limited on companies they are able to apply to. Not all companies will accept internationals but those rules are generally company specific and do not differ depending on business school you attend.

HOWEVER, generally Consulting, Finance, Tech, and multi-nationals growing internationally are more likely to sponsor (which in my opinion is why average international salaries are higher than domestics). The opposite is true for small firms/startup.

Having recruited for consulting, I know pretty much all big firms 500+ person firms except one hires internationals.

Re: Ross 2012 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] New post 23 Mar 2012, 00:44
Hi,
I was an R2 applicant for Ross...
I was waitlisted on March 15, and received invite on 19, and got interviewed on March 22.
So, I did not have enough time to supply any new info to get out of the waitlist...
It is also possible that I was waitlisted because I had some missing materials and I could only complete them on Jan 23, 19 days after R2 deadline...
However, my question is:
Should I still send them an update to strengthen my candidacy although I had the chance to mention my updates on my interview yesterday and also delivered my updated resume...
Sending an additional recommendation letter from an alumni will be also possible...
I really appreciate any insight on this...

In my opinion, if you have anything Notable that you wanted added to you application then you can send it in. If not, then I wouldn't worry about it, since it sounds like you were wait listed without interview and now just interviewed so that should have changed your application depending how the interview went.

jhlee,

I haven't gotten my admissions binder either. They did say that it would be closer to the end of the month.
