Good luck everyone! I'm a dual-degree student who will be starting MBA1 in 2013, so hopefully many of us will be classmates together. :)

If I'm not mistaken, those are exactly the same questions as last year's meaning there might be essay question advice floating around the net that would still be good for this year.

Oh also, if anyone is applying to Ross via Consortium and would like to know more about the process, ranking the schools, what happens after you're in, OP, and the general Ross Consortium family appeal, feel free to ask here or PM and I'd be happy to discuss.

Yep, I listed those in the original post, but I believe those are last year's questions, and a new set will be released on 8/1 when the application goes live.

The header "Fall 2012 Full-time MBA Essay Questions" refers to Fall 2012 entry into the program.

I think you may have just misread it. It said Fall 2013 when I found it through ClearAdmit on the third.

Ah, so apparently Chrome wasn't re-downloading the PDF, it was just opening the one it had cached a couple days ago.

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:

Hi,
I am not sure if I will be applying to Ross. Got a reject from Ross last year and apparently Ross doesn't provide feedback. So I am a little confused about reapplying.

The info mentioned above in the first post (of this thread) mentions: "Total Full-Time MBA Enrollment 1046". If I am not mistaken isn't the class size for Ross around 500. Am I correct?
