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

Thanks!

It's a No/Yes
Officially we do NOT have Grade Non-Disclosure Policy, you can disclose your grades if you wish.

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.

No worries, we were all confused for a while too since some people said that also. The school finally sent out emails confirming it. But since very few (Under 5 companies) have ever asked for specific grades we basically have a GND in effect.

It was tough, but I withdrew my acceptance today.

Hopefully my spot goes to somebody deserving here in the message thread!

If I'm remembering correctly then you cannot delete it and will need to contact admissions to replace the resume. It shouldn't be a problem at all.

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...').

Same here. It was way tougher than I thought it would be. Although I'm going elsewhere, I will always have a soft spot for Ross.

Hope a GMAT Club waitlister gets my spot!

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

Re: Ross 2012 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] New post 06 Apr 2012, 20:14
I'm seeking some advice here from current students and GMAT CLUB pre-MBA's.

I've been offered a full scholarship to Johnson. I've also been accepted to Ross and the dual degree Erb Institute program. I am waiting for a financial offer as now that they're aware of my situation they are working to put together a package for me to help.

As it stands now again I have a full scholarship to Cornell, and nothing at UMICH. Yet I loved UMICH.

How much $ do some people think would make going to UMICH worthwhile and letting go of Cornell? Nothing, apples-to-apples $? How much is the school one loves worth in your opinion?
