I'm submitted for R1; excited to go through the process.

Are there any stats out there for when, after R1 deadlines, people get interviews?
Is there any detail on when people started to get decisions?

I'm not an expert and this is my view only.

I suggest around 500 because that is probably the maximum you can fit with legible font and margins in a single page. Ideally, I would like to see some white space with font no smaller than 11 and 1.5 spacing.

I have one question as well:
Is the cover letter optional? The field says if you would like the adcom to know something more.. blabla.. go ahead and upload the document.

For the cover letter:

Your resume is held at one page. I'd say have your cover letter not be a FULLY typed page. I agree with the above, if you're going to follow a cover letter template (top heading, addressed to, etc.) 500 words is more then enough to have the page look "complete" without appearing to be cramming stuff in.

Just remember: if you're going to do the optional items for the application, they better be good/memorable. You don't want to be the guy with the longer application that the adcom member reviewing is tired of reading.

How can one show 'fit' with Ross in the first essay : "introduce yourselves to your future classmates". Suggestions?

Look at the 100 word introduction more as a hook to sell yourself then to show a fit with the school. You'll have plenty of chances to show a fit through the other essays. This essay is about you: why you're a more viable applicant in an elevator pitch when compared other applicants.

Absolutely agree to what you said. That is what I was doing until I read an admissions consultant's blog.

Viable candidate in an elevator pitch - does it mean how uniquely I project myself ? I understand that is how they are going to remember me.

There are only two viability parameters that strike me: fit and uniqueness.

what exactly did you mean by viable?

No PDF Preview?
I just hit submit, expecting to review the whole application in PDF format, like I did on other schools. But I was moved directly to the payment screen. Luckily, I was able to return to the application.
Has anyone submitted it yet? Isn´t there really the PDF preview at the end of the form, or did I somehow missed it?

Just submitted my app.....and yeah....was shocked to see that there is no review option before submission.
Only after payment can one see the final submitted form, the format of which really sucks!!

Hope the process post submission is glitch free.......

btw..... FYI......I did not submit any covering letter, I did not feel like writing anything additional.....hope that's fine.

Good luck to others

The Round 1 deadline is October 10. This year, we'll release Round 1 decisions prior to the Christmas holiday - on December 20, 2012.
The first wave of interview invites will go out on October 23; second wave of invites on November 12. The wave in which you are invited has no correlation to your likelihood of admission.

Hi

The application allows only one file upload in Education section. But it asks for separate documents for transcript and the degree conferred. What to do ?

Thanks zpotm. My Acrobat had crashed, hence that question. Crazy things, crazier process.

Put in Ross after 00:00 hrs IST. It is 11:59 EST, so that is ok, right ?

Me too, shocked about the lack of a PDF and their site is hard to read so hopefully no issues. I skipped the cover letter too, you posting that made me feel way better.

Does anyone know if Ross is similar to other schools in that if you do not get an invitation to interview by Nov 12, then you are rejected? Or do you need to wait until Dec 20 to know for sure?

Hi,

I applied for Full Time MBA program for Fall 2013. I realized today that in reply to the question: Enter total number of months of all full time work that you will have completed between the time you received your undergraduate degree and the time of your prospective enrollment at Ross - I mentioned 36 months which should be 48 months.

I mailed Ross Admissions to which they replied that they do not accept updated documentation after application submission. Could anyone please guide me about what can be done? And how much impact it has on my application?

Many Thanks
