BOOKMARKED
Based on some questions about the Team Exercise both here and via PM I figured it would be good to calm some of those pre-interview nerves! :lol:

MBA programs have a lot of group work and Ross is no exception. In order to see how you may work with classmates, Ross will observe you during the team exercise. Think back to difficult group situations at work or school....do you really think someone is going to come in with an ax to grind during an interview? Doubtful, but even if that does happen, it's how you react that matters. I know it's not what you probably want to hear but this is truly something not to prepare for. It's new and we're so focused on studying for the highest GMAT score, crafting the best application, and preparing for the best interview that we think we can outwork this too. Also, let's be honest - change is scary, but it's something we need to get comfortable with as future business leaders. So for the team exercise at least, just come in and have fun with it. I enjoyed it and so did the others I participated in the team exercise with! Sorry - just trying to provide some perspective and I don't mean to sound preachy at all. Sounding rehearsed in an exercise that's observing how you "think, communicate, or operate" will do more harm than good.

http://rossblogs.typepad.com/admissions ... or+Blog%29

From the above blog post from Soojin:
"“I got an interview and I signed up for the team exercise. I’m so fired up I want to organize other applicants for a mock team exercise.”

Wow. What a bad idea. If you have an urge to "practice" for the team exercise, fight the urge. It won't help. There's no case to practice or good lines to use. The purpose of the team exercise – and the entire application, for that matter – is to get to know you as you really are: how you think, how you communicate, how you operate. There's no "right" way to think, communicate or operate."

For more insight on the team exercise:

Good luck everyone and Go Blue!

Hi,
All the best to all you guys who are still to give interviews! :)

I am a R2 applicant and haven't been invited for an interview. I was just wondering that, is it surely a ding or does Ross waitlist applicants without interviews for evaluation in the next Round?

Thanks

After reading Ross' latest admissions blog, I'm almost very sure she's referencing this exact thread.

Ok, I got my answer from the Ross admissions blog

"
“So if I didn’t get an interview invite I should abandon all hope and crawl into my closet.”

No. If you didn’t get an invitation to interview in Round 2, it means that we need to do additional reviews to determine whether to invite you to interview in Round 3. Bottom line is that if you're not invited to interview in Round 2, you'll either be waitlisted or not admitted. Be sure to login to your account March 14 for this decision."

I wont crawl into my closet then, for now atleast. :D

I'm doing an on-campus interview on Monday (2/10). I thought I would post here to see if anyone else is interviewing that day and possibly needs a ride from/to the airport on Sunday/Tuesday.

Good luck everyone!

No one should e worried about the team experience. I did it on February 7th and it was a blast. Just have fun and be yourself. If you have a good group, you won't even take it seriously, you will use it almost as a continuation of the ice breaker and just enjoy the moment.

It was REALLY fun.

Question: So I have an interview coming up this weekend at a Coffee Shop w a relatively young alumni. The conversation on the scheduling system has been fairly informal. My question is do I wear Business Casual since it is on the weekend or do I go full suit. I didnt get any direction from my interviewer...but I am leaning more toward the Business Casual route...thoughts? Thanks.

I just had a similar experience with my interview (casual coffee spot). I didn't get any direction from my interviewer re: clothes, so I went with a full suit. I also happened to see the candidate who interviewed right after me, and he was wearing a full suit and tie. We did look odd in that coffee shop and I was definitely dressed up way more than my interviewer, but I was glad I did. Other candidates will be wearing the full get up, so might as well show your "seriousness."

Not sure whether ppl already posted for group exercise so I just quickly put something here.

I did it together with my on-campus interview. The whole experience was really great and exciting.. The 1-to-1 interview was quite conversational, but I heard some interviewers were more formal. The group exercise includes 2 parts, 1st part to tell a story for 1 min, 2nd part to present a "project" for 5 mins together with all team members. there were 6 ppl in my team. In both parts we presented to the two observers who were MBA2 student. It was really really fun... There is really nothing to prepare as all has to be spontaneous. I noticed the two observers were taking some notes during the whole session so I guess they needed to comments on each individual's behavior.
The team exercise was done in a pizza restaurant. So after that we were served with pizza and there were still MBA2 to come to talk to us. But I felt sorry for them as after the whole morning all of us were too tired and there were lot of awkward silent moments.
Overall I really enjoyed the days in Ross. It was a great experience and I actually learned a lot. As the applicants were exposed to the fellow applicants and students all the time, you will definitely make friends and learn something new.
