Michigan state(broad) and U Michigan (Ross) are about as similar as UPenn(Wharton) and Penn State(Smeal). They are in the same state, and thats about it.


Yeah, but anyone with an internet connection can figure out in 12 seconds that michigan state and university of michigan are different schools. i assume everyone on gmatclub has internet access. guess that's because i'm an evil american.

haha, I am a converted American and up until this year, I thought that London Business School and London School of Economics are under the same parent institution, until someone punched me in the face and said "you are an idiot". We can give internationals some benefit of doubt. (yes, even in this internet age)

If I'm not mistaken, those are exactly the same questions as last year's meaning there might be essay question advice floating around the net that would still be good for this year.

Oh also, if anyone is applying to Ross via Consortium and would like to know more about the process, ranking the schools, what happens after you're in, OP, and the general Ross Consortium family appeal, feel free to ask here or PM and I'd be happy to discuss.

Yep, I listed those in the original post, but I believe those are last year's questions, and a new set will be released on 8/1 when the application goes live.

The header "Fall 2012 Full-time MBA Essay Questions" refers to Fall 2012 entry into the program.

I think you may have just misread it. It said Fall 2013 when I found it through ClearAdmit on the third.

Ah, so apparently Chrome wasn't re-downloading the PDF, it was just opening the one it had cached a couple days ago.

Folks,

Feel free to reach out to me here or via PM as a resource. I was a reapp last year in R2 and was accepted.

Hi,
I am not sure if I will be applying to Ross. Got a reject from Ross last year and apparently Ross doesn't provide feedback. So I am a little confused about reapplying.

The info mentioned above in the first post (of this thread) mentions: "Total Full-Time MBA Enrollment 1046". If I am not mistaken isn't the class size for Ross around 500. Am I correct?

Total size of the business school (~500+~500=~1000)

Hi,

Thanks for helping us out. I applied to Ross 2 years back. I got rejected without being waitlisted. Then took some time off last year. Planning to re-apply this year. Since Ross doesn't provide any feedback on previous application, I am a little confused whether I should reapply or not. What are your thought on it? Do they like re-applicants. Ross' site mentions that they would not consider me as a reapplicant as I had applied last to last year rather than last year. Will they still have a look at my original app?

The school doesn't say if it keeps your application if beyond one year, that being said, if you log in to Wolverine access (you should have access since you were once an applicant) it will show there all your application attempts. This leads me to believe everything is stored electronically.

Deciding on if it's worth it to reapply: The best thing to do is find someone you know who is either in a similarly ranked MBA program or recently finished his/her MBA program and spend an hour or so doing a profile eval. You'll need to cover A-Z of the app (your GMAT, resume, essays, people you selected for LOR, etc.). I was fortunate enough to have someone (a yr1 Ross MBA) help me with my reapp and the factor that he said killed my app was my essays were very generic. They didn't make me stand out. After a LOT of time investment, I revamped the essays and had a different reply this time around.

I've heard from people at other top 10 programs (Wharton, HBS, etc.) say schools do not like reapps unless something significantly changes in your profile, but I didn't get that vibe through my reapp with Ross.

500 in one class (for example, those graduating in 2013) and 500 in the other (those graduating in 2014). TOTAL enrollment = two classes.

Is your confusion about whether or not you should apply or about why you were rejected? The answer to the first is easy--yes you should if you want to!

The other depends. Common reasons that lead to rejection:
1) Stats (GPA/GMAT) were low
2) Career goals were fuzzy
3) You come from a common group (indian male, american finance male) and didn't stand out (i.e your essays were boring like mohater said)
4) They weren't convinced you really liked their school
5) Your work experience was lack-luster.

Hope that helps a bit.

I am also an applicant to Ross. Its a great school indeed. But I will apply next year as I'm not ready completely. I'm here to learn more about the admissions process of the school. Your posts have been a great help.
