Guys,

After following this post for a long time and going through anxious moments when i did not get an invite in any wave, I thought I should update this.

Don't lose hope (I did) ... Cause when i woke up today morning I saw the interview invite in my inbox. I am an Indian applicant and a very relieved one at the moment :D

So good luck all !

Interview was pretty standard.

Resume walk-through
Why MBA?
Why Now?
Why Ross?
What clubs would you join?
What other schools did you apply to?
Give three words your boss would use to describe you.
Give an example of a time a team member wasn't pulling their own weight. How did you handle it?
What is a brand that has done a good job over the past 5 years? (I said I wanted to go into brand management)

It was really pretty relaxed and conversational. Interview lasted 30 minutes and there was time at the end to ask questions.

Hi Olivia,

What was your response for the brand that has done well over the last 5 years? (if you don't mind sharing).

Ok.. as of 11/28/2012 Ross has only interviewed or invited to interview just 42% of the R1 applicants. Last year it was 72% of the applicants in the first round who were interviewed/invited. Its been 2 weeks since the 2nd "final" wave so this is definitely not adding up!

Hey guys,
I did not receive an interview call (R1 applicant). Does anyone know if Ross puts students on waitlist without interview as well (apart from the waitlist with interview)?

Hi,

There is a section in Ross Application (pg 10 of application):
Additional Information Upload (for cover letters, additional information)
If you need to provide additional information not provided in another part of the application, please upload below. Include your name and the type or purpose of the document in the header for identification.

Are we required to submit a cover letter for this application or is it truly optional.

Thanks,
Vikram

Live Essay Writing Workshop, presented by Admissionado


Sigh. The MBA Application essays. Who thought it was a good idea to ask people to write 2000 words before they even get INTO school? Turns out, it doesn’t matter, because someone did… and now you have to come up with the most compelling and memorable essays about leadership that you can. And then do it again for every school you apply to.

It’s not easy, but this upcoming event should help. Submit your MBA Application essay to have an opportunity to have it reviewed for free by the team at Admissionado. Three essays will be selected, and if you are one of the lucky ones, you will have the opportunity to go through your essay with Phillip Herring (admissions expert and CBS MBA) in a live session. You will need to be OK with sharing your essay with attendees (don’t worry – we’ll keep your name/private info out of it), and available and online at the time of the event to chat it up with Phillip. Even if you aren’t selected, listen in, because there will still be plenty of essay advice to go around.

Submit your essay to lauren@admissionado.com by Monday, December 3. You will find out if you are selected by Wednesday, December 5. Then join the live event on Thursday, December 6 at 6pm PST. Register Now [FREE!]

Just interviewed today on campus. It was very relaxed and conversational. I could tell he was very new to the interview process as he went down a list asking me questions and taking notes for each question. I think I was asked maybe 20 questions in all - nothing surprising if you have been tooling the websites like ClearAdmit that have prior questions posted on there.

All in all, I think it went really well. If you have any questions, let me know, and I'm happy to respond. I'm very familiar with Ann Arbor as well.
