Did you just get the invite or at the same time as others?? Seeing if the adcom guys are working extended hours trying to send out invites

My invite came 4:38 EST

I guess it was the third wave. (somebody else wrote that the third wave could come just a few days after the second wave).

anyway, I talked to a current student and she said that those who haven't been invited yet can still be considered for interview invite this round or be waitlisted for the following round (this latter possibility is less likely to happen).
Don't consider it's over until it isn't over!

Brosnan6, I say we throw the kitchen sink and join nyama and crash a Michigan party. We made it this far, we might as well as go all the way (to Ann Arbor).

Anyone opting to NOT do an on-campus interview even though they haven't visited? Will I be looked upon unfavorably because I haven't visited campus at least once?


Would also love to hear the answer on that from others. The turnaround to do the interview is quite short and I don't think I'll be able to wrap up this project in time enough to make out to campus. I really want to get out there though.


I'm visiting AA (Ann Arbor) Feb 22 for my interview, tour, class visits, see the place, maybe crush a party. For purposes of admission, they [adcom] always say that an interview is an interview, they have the same weight, whether conducted via skype, by alumni off campus or on-campus. That is their claim. Don't know how a grainy skype interview, in which you look like a ghost; or maybe where sound comes and go, would be weighed against the on-campus interview. Your target should be off-campus with alumni or on-campus. do the skype interview if all others fail....

Guys, this is what the Ross adcom replied to my question regarding the third wave:
"When decisions are released, you will be contacted via email. You will be able to login to your account at that time and check your admission decision.
The second wave of interview invites was sent on February 4. There may or may not be a third wave of invites.
"


This is really confusing :?: :
- I received this above mail on Feb 08, just a few hours before they sent out the invites. Is the Ross adcom confused too?
- Did any international applicant receive an invite this time because everyone invited seems to be from the US?
- Just curious as to how Soojin Kwon didn't mention anything about a third wave on her blog when she had mentioned about wave 1 & 2 well in advance.

Having said that, congratulations to all the guys invited, you deserve it. Go get em guys :)

Invited to interview! I'll be interviewing at the campus. Are there any events/activities y'all can suggest while at the campus? Looks like interview acceptance rate at Ross is around 70% from Poets & Quants. Good luck everyone!

I am international, Indian. But based in the US. It was definitely a surprise, especially as it was in the same week as wave 2

Yeah, this process is long and involves a lot of strange stuff. The MBA application process, is weird, it is very very 'cut throat'. I have five years of 'application' experience, especially for graduate school. I have applied for my PhD (sweet process), for my MA -International Relations (walk in the park) etc. Right now, i'm also applying to law school, and their process is sweet. The MBA process....wacky.

It's really getting late in the application cycle. I mean, the class is filling up. However, i would say never give up hope until March 15...then the probability of an invite drops sharply, getting closer to zero each day that passes. By May 1st, when the deposit deadline shows up, the probability jumps toward zero again, by june it will essentially be zero.

At this point I think it's best to wait for the next blog update to see what's next.
