I instantly thought of "Arrested Development" (maeby's report card)

OMG YES! Ross is similar to the Sunshine Academy

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

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?

Anyone attending GBR and willing to spy a bit for me? I switched to the Weekend MBA program since I live and work in Ann Arbor. I'd like to attend any and all of the GBR events to get familiar with the clubs. I'm particularly interested in the Energy, Finance and Consulting clubs. A heads up to when they organize their social events would be a great help.

Thanks and see you at Ross in the fall!

I'm considering deferring due to new job options -- does anyone know how that process works, or if Ross would even allow it?


You will have to submit a letter to Soojin requesting a deferral and explaining all your reasons.

Here is there published policy: http://www.bus.umich.edu/Admissions/Mba ... #deferrals

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.

Didn't realize there were other gmatclubbers at the NYC event...

When is everyone going up to GBR? I'm flying in during the afternoon on Wednesday.

Didn't do a good job of letting others know we would be there. I guess there are too many other ways already with the google group and facebook.

My name is Dan V (everyone at the NYC event said "oh your the guy who posts all the time"... great to be known for that I suppose) and I'll be up Wednesday night. Driving 10 hours from Philadelphia.

We can try to meet up there though.

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? :P

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. :lol:


hahaha I'm kidding about sucking up. Who knows what i was babbling about that night. I probably did say Penn Station. The offer still stands yes. You are still Blue at Duke even if it is a devil. So you can scream go Blue without any compromising any allegiances.

As you can tell I am heavily leaning towards Ross. I will decide after this weekend (hopefully) because it is both GBR and Welcome Weekend (Tepper's Admit weekend).

Hi Guys,
I've just been invited to interview at Ross after being waitlisted in R2. I really liked Ross since the beginning of my application process. Although, their policy of not supporting international student loans would be a major issue for me. I was wondering if any international admitted student can shed some light on the issue.. Is there a way around it? Or shall I simply decline the offer to interview as I have been accepted in two other schools.?

Ther eis no option for loan for international applicants through ROSS. Personally, I checked with 10-12 banks and they can provide loans to international applicants. But there is a BIG condition: they need a US cosigner(Permanent Resident or Citizen) for sanction the lona, the amount does not matter. The only option left is to check for sources in your homeland.

cunit2k5, explorer21 and I didn't plan on meeting there. I just figured out that he's the same guy who posted on the Facebook group that he's torn between Ross and Tepper. I approached him when I saw his name tag and introduced myself as threestripes.

explorer21, I knew there was no love lost between us even though I unintentionally led you to the wrong terminal! Have fun at GBR! It's a shame Thursday Night Lights probably won't happen anymore.

Thanks a lot, dbanerj. Finding a co-signer would be near to impossible for me. Unfortunately, it appears that I'll have to decline the Ross interview offer.
Anyway, good luck to all the admitted students!

Can anyone who was at GBR give a run down as to how it went?? I wasn't able to make it due to work constraints, but still want to hear about what people thought of it.
