Interesting, thank you. I guess I'm wondering if I actually have a fighting chance and if the interview will make or break the deal. Like if they already did some sort of review of my stats and still decided to give me an interview, does that mean that the stats are "over" at this point/already met their criteria, and that the interview is the deciding factor at this point?


I actually think an interview invite is not the final check and that if one aces it, they are not necessarily through. Personal experiences lead me to believe that.
I think it is definitely a VERY good sign -a filter of sorts by which adcom picks out their final pool of applicants that they will look at once again after all interviews are done with. This pool is obviously larger than the number of admits that they plan to give out in a round. Also I think its subdivided into pools based on applicant gender, nationality, industry etc..
Then I think you are compared with your peers in your sub-pool. Say for example, there were 20 other people similar to you (gender, GMAT, industry, nationality, interview/communication prowess, school fit etc), and for 'that profile' say they plan to only let in 5.
Then the best 5, again holistically, will be picked through a mechanism we will never know :). The remainder I suppose will either be wait-listed or dinged in a ratio that depends on how adcom perceives its yield for that sub-pool profile, and if its early or late in admissions process.

Again I have too much time on my hands waiting for a decision, so I spend time speculating how admissions work. Don't read too much into what I say. I think the bottom line is this time, waiting for a decision is only second to the time after getting in -which all of us may not have this season. No application trauma, no GMAT trauma, no interview trauma; Haven't felt that way in many months!
So I think its best to just enjoy it as best one can, keeping the hope up!

I just saw a South Park episode where Cartman freezes himself to wait for the Wii launch. What a terrific idea, I'll freeze myself until the 15th.

For Boston they said they are doing the O' last names first before they do the Mc ones.

Yes, very disappointing. This is my 2nd season applying, maybe MBA isn't meant for me.


it's st patty's day weekend ... go to the bar, indulge in some irish car-bombs (sleep it off on Sunday), then come back next season with a better strategy.

I have decided not to attend Ross, so I have rejected the admission offer.
I am disspointed however but things are as they are and new oppportunities arise, I am sure they will!

Good luck to all of you guys!

Just wanted to share that I confirmed with admissions that all updates have taken place, so if you have not heard and you are on the WL, you will remain on the WL for the summer.

I recently attended the Bangalore Info session of Ross and have shared my experience of chatting with Adcom member and a couple of alumni here. Hope this helps in applications.
