Stephen Ross donates again! $200M this time, super impressed.

What is he trying to do, get the school to be the University of Ross?

Haha.. Might have happened if it weren't a public university....

Harvard, Stanford, Yale and Columbia are the only ones remaining in the top 20 who are yet to name their b-schools.. Unfortunately I'm not applying to any of them.. And it doesn't make sense to donate to a school which wasn't my alma mater.. Guess I wont be having a top 20 b-school named after me after all.. :P

That, my friend, is a good deduction.

Hey applicants,

What do you all think about Ross's location? I know Ross is in Ann Arbor, but Detroit will inevitably have some hegemony. Wanted to know what you all thought about the role Detroit's situation would play regarding access to recruiting and even entertainment.


Hi,

I had similar doubts about Ross, but go through these links. The information helps to decide -

http://poetsandquants.com/2010/12/13/mi ... -business/
and
http://poetsandquants.com/2010/07/24/mi ... s-kellogg/

There are different pages on this link. Make sure you go through all the pages of information.

I think that is the best part about Ross essays. It doesn't eat up a lot of time to complete your essays. And you get to say what you really want to say. You don't beat around the bush.

100% agree. Short and to the point, without making you write long, never-ending stories. And by the way, there are other schools that took this to the extreme (Duke offers about 40 words for you ST goals and another 40 words for LT. That's super short).

BTW, does anyone know whether the recommendations has this "ranking" element across multiple personality traits?

Non-availability of co-signor free loans to international students worries me a lot..but still i'm in for R1.


I feel the same Amit, but Ross has a good tradition in terms of Financial Aid being offered. As per Business Week, 75% of the students requested aid, and they have received some. Of course, how much of what they expected is unclear, but something is truly better than nothing when it comes to scholarships :)

I am getting ready for my GMAT. Hope I'd have enough time for the apps. Really looking forward to applying and scoring a college this year! :)

Regards,
A

I'm not sure about the how much will the scholarships help..Considering the free fall of Rupee these days..paying in dollars after taking an Indian loan is not gonna be fine. Anyways funding obviously comes much later.. its the GMAT first and then the apps..I'm in for R1



How are you planning to finance if admitted? Have you looked for any options? I guess as an international applicant one should take into account no cosigner loans before applying rather than spending efforts in application. What if one is admitted but can't attend because of the financial situation. I have seen some of such cases in forums from last few years. Credila offers loans upto CoA but the interest rate is insane. It is almost 13-14 %.
I saw on last year's forum that there was a link for a loan option for internationals. But now that link is not valid anymore.

Anyone notice that on the employment section of the application it only asks for two employers? At first I thought it may be an issue with my browser, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Is there a way to add additional employers or is Ross only interested in the most recent two ?

Hi Everyone,

I have a quick doubt. Do I need to send my GMAT scores to Ross via GMAC? Or is submitting the scanned copy of my report enough?

Thanks in advance!

From Ross' FAQ page:
Quote:
Q. How long will it take for my scores to be sent to Ross after I take the test?

A. We recommend that you allow for at least four weeks for Ross to receive your GMAT or GRE scores. Ross’ GRE reporting code is 1839. If you are uncertain as to whether we will receive your official scores by the deadline, you can upload your unofficial score via your online application, fax your unofficial score report to our office at 734-763-7804, or send it to 701 Tappan St., Room E2540, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1234.


So it seems like while you SHOULD send your official reports to them, it is OK to upload an unofficial score till the the official ones arrive to them.

I think you are correct. I didn't find a way to add a third employer as well.

Hi guys,

I'm also working on the R1 application.

But I'm having a problem.

I submitted wrong email ID of my supervisor and the system is not allowing me to update it :(

Does anyone have any solution?

Can we provide offline recommendation?

Waiting eagerly for your replies..

Below content is quoted from Ross's website

Q: How do I submit supplemental information (e.g., transcripts or a letter of recommendation) if I am unable to upload it with my online application?

A: We do not accept updated documentation after application submission. This includes new resumes, essays or additional recommendations. The only exception is updated test scores.

If there was a problem submitting transcripts or a recommendation via the online application, you can scan these items and attach in an email to rossmba@umich.edu. Please include your name and date of birth in the email, and let us know this is supplemental to your application.
