I feel safe in saying that 10 years from now, the name of the school on your resume will not matter as much as your accomplishments.

I think the Ross program would actually be of more benefit to you in the near term, ie: your first job out of grad school (however the fellowship on the resume will help quite a bit too).

You have to figure out if the immediate opportunities are worth the cost difference. I don't think anyone can tell you what you should do. Everyone's motivation's are different. Me, I'd take the scholarship because I am cost adverse. Others would jump at the chance to bump up 10 spots on the rankings no matter the cost.

Got my admit call yesterday. However, a scholarship on top of in-state tuition at UT (Texas) is going to be too hard to pass up.

So should be good news for someone on the waitlist when I decline.

how is this different from Michigan state university


you're kidding.... right?


IM DEAD freakin SERIOUS! One thing you Americans do not realise is that just because you doing to gmat dont mean you are american or even live in the US for that matter. I have looked at 25 maybe over US universities michigan state being one but when you say Ross Michigan it maybe different.

Im coming from the UK where i did my 1st degree. There Manchester Metroplitan University and Manchester University all in the same place and walking distance from each other so thought it might be the case here but telling by your sarcasm they are obviously the same uni.



Michigan and Michigan State are two different universities. Michigan (Ross) is the topic of this thread, while you can find a thread on Michigan State (Broad) here: broad-michigan-state-2013-calling-all-mba-applicants-141275.html

Ross is ranked higher than Broad, but Broad is a decent program. Hope this helps.

Ahhh that totally makes sense! Don't sweat it. We're all under a lot of stress :lol:.



Yeah it will get you sometimes. Last year I answered all of Carnegie Mellon's questions early, only to find out they were the old ones and were pretty different than the new ones. I was pretty mad at myself but getting some extra thoughts out did help so it wasn't a total loss. Still pretty idiotic... :lol:

Just got an "App Tip" email from Ross despite my applying R1:

"Your mother always told you not to change for anyone. It turns out she was right. Soojin Kwon, director of admissions, offers the same advice for the MBA admissions process. In her latest application tip, Soojin explains how applicants can stand out by being themselves — and says "why" is the most important of those five "w" questions you learned as a kid."

Not what I was expecting or hoping for...



Lol this got me too!!

Anyone have stats on what % of candidates who are invited for interviews get acceptances?


Sooyin indicated that nearly 40 - 50% of the applicants get invited for the interview. Last year, the acceptance rate was 32%. So assuming upper limit of Sooyin's estimates, nearly 64% got a place in the program.

Disclaimer: Last year their yield dropped by a good 20%, so the high acceptance rate might have been an aberration.

Anyone who interviewed on campus willing to share the questions they asked?


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.

To help others rest easy tonight, I was a bit neurotic today during lunch and searched last years' Ross forum. It seems calls started going out two days before decisions were posted online, which means calls to admitted students should start tomorrow.


Soojin posted!! http://rossblogs.typepad.com/admissions/

Admissions calls for the US will begin Wednesday, and calls for International applicants will begin Thursday! Thank you Soojin!

Have any of you seen the comments from this article? Not the comments from Businessweek but from the 100+ post below responding to the article. It is truly shocking. Duke has a party culture but it does not seem to be racist. I don't know what is more shocking - the response from alums who are internationals, the arrogance of current students or the immaturity from prospective students who wish to go there.

[www]poetsandquants dot com/2012/12/04/the-worst-things-mbas-say-about-their-schools

Please comment and share your thoughts. I was highly considering Ross before this but this place does not seem to have a "collaborative" culture as advertised.


Making such a blanket statement against a top b-school is irresponsible and dangerous. I don't go to Ross so I can neither confirm nor deny the comments in poets&quants. I think international students have a hard time fitting into a certain American social scene, mainly the fratty culture at schools such as ross, fuqua, darden, and tuck. Given that most of these types are white, the internationals may feel left out or unwelcome. This feeling is certainly understandable, but unless we see more concrete evidence, let's abstain from such accusations.
