I think you mean recommendations, they normally give some extra time for recommendations to come in, but in any case I would suggest you send a mail to the adcom or give them a call to be sure.

Was Ross cover letter a mandatory thing to submit.
I thought it was only for re-applicants so I didn't upload anything.

is that a problem?

Ross does not have activities unlike most of other schools but has option of uploading additional document.

Should we compile a list of activities, extracurriculars and awards, and upload it their?

Found this: http://rossblogs.typepad.com/admissions ... ulars.html

I was able to address everything in my required essays so I think that was sufficient. You could go for the optional essay as a method.


Doesn't Ross Care About Extracurriculars?

For those of you who have started your Ross application, you may have noticed that we do not have an "Awards and Extracurricular Activities" section. This was a conscious decision based on our observations over the past many years that: (1) not all cultures and industries encourage or accommodate extracurricular activities; (2) many applicants included awards and activities that were "beyond the expiration date" (i.e., were from high school or college); (3) many applicants felt compelled to provide a laundry list of activities that often didn't gel with the rest of their application; and, (4) lists were often "padded" (e.g., when we added up the amount of time that applicants said they engaged in an activitiy on a weekly basis, it occasionally exceeded their full-time jobs, which made the AdComm wonder, "Do these people never sleep or did they forget to do their math?").

Despite the pitfalls we encountered with the listing of extracurricular activities, we do care about what applicants do outside of work/school. Extracurricular activities are a core part of the Ross experience - to deepen your expertise in a particular area of interest, to develop your leadership skills, to contribute to the community, to develop relationships with classmates, to network with recruiters, etc. As such, we want to know that the applicants we admit will be engaged members of our community, not just in the classroom, but outside as well.

To demonstrate this, you can include an "extracurricular activities and honors" section in your resume (which should be one page) and...be prepared to talk about it in your interview. Interviewers will have a copy of your resume and no other part of your application, so consider any content in your resume a potential topic for discussion. Additionally, applicants can address it in one of the essays - either the "what are you most passionate about" or the optional essay.

Hope this helps. Best, Soojin

Last year they went out in three waves: January 17, February 3, and February 10. Soojin posted the exact dates on her blog and I'm guessing she'll do the same this year.

Good luck, and keep in mind that, should they follow the same "wave" format this year, when you receive an invite has no bearing on your admissions decision -- it's just a matter of when they reviewed your application.

In!


One question to the people who have been admitted.

I've read that the welcome package will arrive towards the end of Jan. Apart from that, on the websites and wolverine access, I could see the decision deposit deadline (May 1), but nothing else that is a person is required to do right now.

Just wanted to know, if I am interested in joining, is there anything else I need to do right now? (apart from paying the deposit before the deadline)


Thanks!

I turned in my Ross application the other day. Now waiting! Just to point out, I have a messy UG GPA, so so GRE scores, an MPH =GPA 3.71, finishing an MA -International Relations =GPA 3.84 etc. I guess i will be the guinea pig, where the question is: If you have a wacky UG GPA, so so GMAT scores, but stellar work experience, stellar graduate school record, of course, a stellar application, can you get into the best programs?

It seems Ross is looking for a change in interview format from round 2? Excerpts from admission blog:

The first wave of Round 2 interview invitations will go out on Thursday, January 10. One of the things that the team and I are working on this week is a pilot for a supplemental interview process designed to give us further insight into candidates' fit with our learning community. Because of the highly interactive and team-based nature of our classes, we're seeking to assess applicants' ability to communicate in a group setting and work with others.

The pilots will be conducted in Beijing and Shanghai, and I'll be in China on January 26th and 27th to facilitate both sessions. We plan to have current students and alumni participate as well. We're inviting candidates to attend this supplemental interview based on geography, so read your interview invitation carefully for more details
