Does anyone know how strong the Ross network is in New York? Really having a hard time deciding between Johnson and Ross right now. I've searched iMpact and get over 400 hits in Finance but shouldn't there be more?

I count about 2500 hits on the Alumni directory...NY is probably the most well represented after Chicago.

Can any current students or others comment on why Ross seem to have higher unemployment rates than peer schools (Duke, Darden, Anderson) and schools with lower rankings (Kelley, Olin)

I'm guessing there are factors at play here. Perhaps industries that Ross students typically recruit into are down on recruiting?

It's more of a function of graduation dates than anything else - Ross is one of the earliest schools to graduate their students (end of April) so they haven't had as long to recruit than schools that graduate later.

I don't know compared to Johnson, but Ross has a large continent in the New York Area, especially BBA's, there's like 50%+ that end up there. Within the MBA's there also a large continent this year going, some of us were discussing where to live today. Between Consulting, Financial Services, and Marketing - New york is probably the 2nd largest group after chicago.

There are a lot of factors I think, and it's impossible to see what specifically is the reason(s) but here are a couple reasons:

In relation to the other schools, we have a large portion that take longer to recruit IE Non-profit, Erb (natural resources), and Entrepreneurs (this one is less so, but I know probably about 2% who aren't recruiting and plan to launch a company)

These individuals tend to be more selective and commit later.


Also for the down turn, Ross had a higher percentage in General Management which have been slower to hirer new people because of the recession. Consulting tends to be consistent year in year out (some dip in 2008-2009 but not much).


Other than that it would be interesting to see what the numbers are for this year.

Thanks GoBruin and Woomba.

Good answers, but it still is a little worrying. I suppose erbers have been hit particularly hard with the downturn in sustainability.

My personal take is that focusing on the employment numbers isn't very useful after a certain % value due to all the imperfect information out there (timing differences, different student make up,etc.)- and all of the top 15 schools pass that mark.

If you're considering between Ross and another school, you're better off going through Employment reports of those schools and looking at how many companies that you're interested in recruited people from that school and how many people they took. That will probably get you more meaningful data than focusing on the % values.

I think for the same reasons using students hired by individual companies from different schools isnt that meaningful.
It very much depends on student interest in these companies which is hard to gauge. I read that 2012 has been a good year though, I'm keen to see the results.

When is the next time WL applicants could expect to hear anything from Ross? Is there a definite positive to sending a mediocre update versus no update? I loved Ross and I hate being in a state of limbo.

Hey Guys!

Any updates on whether Ross is offering Non co-signor loan yet?

I have an admit from UNC with some scholarship while I am waitlisted at Ross in R2. But do not have a US co-signor so will need the non-co-signor loan from Ross to attend.

Any views comments on how to proceed will be highly appreciated!!

Thanks!

The adcom have told us in no uncertain terms that there will be no non us cosigner loans.
I think yield for international students will be horrendous, so the ironic thing is you will prob get off the WL but have no way to finance.
I suggest u start looking for a cosigner or a private loan because u will prob get in.

Does it look bad if a waitlisted candidate does not send an update? I have not had any significant changes since my application. I may be able to have someone I work with (Ross alum) send an additional recommendation. Does Ross look favorably on recommendations from alums?

Calm down everyone. Yes, there is no option for a no-consignor loan this year (atleast not yet) but the adcom made this clear very early in the application season. It is not as if you got admitted and then suddenly one day you found out that the loan wasn't available for internationals.
I believe people who did their due diligence before applying to Ross would have known this fact and therefore i do not believe that the yield will be "horrendous". I am an international and would have loved the option of a no US consignor loan, but i knew what i was getting into. These details should have been worked out by candidates before they applied to Ross. If the applicant knew that there was no possibility of a US consignor, and financing would be an issue, then the applicant should not have applied in the first place.
And thus, there is no need to slant the quality of internationals who will be a part of the Class of 2014 (i read that comment a few pages back).
