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.

Suit up. I did, even though my interviewer came in a sweater.

Go formal. I went in a work dress because I didn't want my office to know I was going for an interview and my interviewer came in very casual clothes. She also did not mention dress code but better to be safe!

The interview was very casual to the point I got worried because I'm not sure where the "interview line" ends. We walked all the way to public transport and chatted but I was quite nervous about saying things she might subconsciously take into consideration her judgement because she asked questions regarding my application. On hindsight, I might have preferred the Skype interview.

Anybody who attended the group based exercise please throw some light on what exactly was the process. I am not able to find much information on the internet so kinda clueless as to what to expect.

Hi Guys!

Don't fret over the group exercise. It will be fun!

The interview was very conversational and fun! Keeping fingers crossed for the final communication from Ross!

Cheers! Go Blue!

Had a horrible interview experience... I had traveled 2 hours before my scheduled interview and because of the pollution my throat gave up. :oops: In between, I had such severe cough that was unable to talk and had to take a few minutes just to take a tablet to continue. On top of that the skype went off twice and had to reconnect it. Though questions answers were good in my opinion and she was very warm, I made an awful impression. Team exercise went well but somehow this has put a big question on my application :?: :roll:

Honestly don't worry about it. It's pretty easy and stress-free.

Will Ross release the result earlier than 14th March?
Or all the results will be announced only on that date?

I think you get two minutes (or it might have have been 3) to prepare the 1 minute story, and then your group has 15 minutes to prepare the group story.

There's no real way to prepare for this. The words are all completely random.

I'm interviewing on Friday. I'm getting into Ann arbor on Thursday and doing a class visit. I'm staying at the Sheraton. I'm down to hang out and get a drink/dinner the night before. Are you staying at the Sheraton?

I think applicants from the US get a call a day before (13th March) and international students get a call on the day itself (14th March). I searched the previous year's forum for this.

I wish the decisions started rolling out from today but I guess some wishes are not meant to be fulfilled!

Keep the hopes and this forum alive!

Go Blue!

This post was
BOOKMARKED
I had my interview this past Monday on President's Day. My interview felt a little different because I felt like I wasn't asked that many questions compared to my other interviews. This is what I was asked:


1) Walk me through your resume?
2) What do you want to do after Ross?
3) What role do you see yourself on teams at Ross?
4) What do you want to do outside of class at Ross?

And then my interviewers jumped right into "do you have any questions for me?" We had a good rapport, so I am hoping that my interviewer felt like she already knew enough about me and didn't need to drill me.

The team exercise went well. I think our team gelled really well, and our evaluators applauded and complimented us at the end. I'm actually kicking myself for not getting the emails of the other people in our group to give ourselves a pat on the back.

Good luck to everyone.

I used the Michigan Flyer (http://www.michiganflyer.com/default.aspx). Cheap and does the job. Depending on where you will be staying the night i.e. Sheraton or near by hotel I got off at Kensington Hotel and walked.

For hotels:
- Sheraton, Courtyard, Residence Inn and Kensington are all very close to each other but will need a taxi to Ross. It costs about $10.

I must say coming in the taxi was fun, you see the Big House and then the beautiful Ross building appears. The adrenaline kicks in.

Guys, Ross has a hotel right on campus, called the Ross ELCC. I'm just staying there. No need to bother with shuttles :-).

I actually realized that on my visit this past Monday. I found it odd that Ross offered a special rate for the Sheraton and not for it's own property. Maybe Ross was using its Exec Learning Center for something else on Monday.
