this may sound dumb, but where are you getting your decision? I logged in and all it shows is confirmation of being submitted, nothing on a decision, and no email yet (i checked spam).

I *think* it will be after the Go Blue Rendezvous that's on April 11-13. Not sure though, I'm looking for the same info.


The decision message mentions this address but its not working for me.

Waitlist with interview. Heartbreaking - I was pretty confident about Ross.

How many get off of the waitlist ?

You are pretty accurate though! It's 16th April. If you click on the "Respond now" button on wolverine access, It shows the payment details and deadline for submission if you choose to accept the offer.


Oh thanks for the info. Did you have to accept the offer to view that information?

Nope. Now seeing back what I wrote, I see the confusion. Sorry for that.
You can see the deadline, payment details and checkbox (to accept/deny the offer) all at once

This is what I could find from Soojin's blog.
http://rossblogs.typepad.com/admissions ... tlist.html
Two types of wait-listed.

Unless there's something more recent which I missed, it seems pretty dismal? Especially if one has a decent GMAT/GPA?
Does Ross accept other updates such as an additional recommendation, New roles/promotion at work etc.?

I think if you are really interested in consulting, you should first take a look at the employment report. It's important to see who recruits where and what are the numbers, some firms have certain schools as feeders. I tried to take a look at Cornell, but I couldn't find the detailed report. I currently work at a non-MBB MC firm, and within my office (northeast region) we have Ross and Duke in similar numbers but fewer cornell and no dardens.

Waitlisted without interview. This is better than the ding from Cornell yesterday!!

Now we need to figure out how to go about getting off the WL!!


For those who were waitlist without interview. Based on prior years, you will get an interview Round 2. Of course if you have notable updates, it doesn't hurt to send them through to the Adcom.

You will be recieving a binder in the mail. It will contain all the information about accepting, the school, sell weekend, etc.

Also some people in prior years have said that they recieved scholarship information with the binder.

Hi!

I'm not sure if this has already been covered...But did anyone use the optional essay for information that they couldn't fit into the other essays? I read some essay analyses websites and I got mixed reviews. Some say that we should only use the optional essay for things such as a poor GPA or low GMAT score. Others recommend using it for an unusual hobby or extracurricular activity.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

I am applying in Round 2. Does anyone know when I could expect to get an interview invitation? My visa is expiring and I need to leave the country by the first week of Feb. I was wondering if it is worth staying here till the end of January expecting an interview [I assume it would be better to give the interview on campus as opposed to off campus]. If there is no chance of getting the interview in Jan, then I might as well leave early.

Any advice is much appreciated guys.

Hi I found that I keyed in wrong email address of my recommender, but found that I cannot amend it anywhere.

Well, there are optional essays and there are optional essays. Ross' is an Open-Ended question, which means you can write it about whatever you want, and not just about "stuff that went sour". And no, you shouldn't just write it about another hobby, but think about what you could potentially write here (what story, item, etc.) that would most help promote your candidacy in view of what else you have written. Basic rule of thumb - if it's not helping you, it's hurting you... but you should be able to find a way to use it, and you should use it.
