may I ask sth. more about MAcc at Ross Michigan
I applied for that and still hear nothing from the school, bad sign?
my GPA is ~3.8 and GMAT is 750
I don't think I do well in essay and for LOR, one of them should be quite good but another one is probably not a good one
could you guys please evaluate my chance?

superel, what is ur GPA and GMAT???? I'm surprised they made a big deal out of getting b's in your accounting classes. When i had my interview, my grades were never alked about even though i had a gpa below the average.

When I talked to the USC admissions officer last year, she said their cutoff score for the GMAT was 650. So, yeah, I think you do need a GMAT score of at least 650. And they accepted 38% out of about 400 applicants last year, if that helps you guys gauge their acceptance statistics. Plus their class is usually around 75-80 for MAcc and 40-50 for MBT. So they probably accept around 150 people.

I submitted my app close to end of Feb. Received an email 2 weeks later for an interview. well I interviewed with Cathy last friday. it was a short decent interview that pretty much when over my essay and goal, since I guess it was "unique". she also asked how accounting would help in my goal and went over my transcripts. I got an A in accounting and B in macroecon at a community college last semester. she didn't bring those grades up or my poor undergrad GPA. she only brought up an "F" i received last semester for an accounting internship at the community college. It was a mistake and was supposed to be an "I" for incomplete. other than that it lasted like 10 mins. she said she would talk and review my file with the "commitee." so i thought i just did bad and wasn't accepted since most of the peoples received "on the spot" acceptances and a nice tour. all i got was a handshake and bye.

Well checked online today and I got accepted. I know for a fact there is no real cut off for GMAT or GPA. trust me. My scores are way below the average and everyone that has posted on this thread. maybe it's because of my occupation and goals that i wrote in my essay? seeing other peoples stats, i feel dumb. lol :lol: if i do accept, I hope everyone is pretty cool and not snobby, uptight, arrogant, backstabbing, and cocky.

are most of the applicants straight out of undergrad? I graduated 5 years ago and have some work experience. I just wasn't sure if everyone was mostly younger since work experience is not a requirement.

thanks and good luck

i think that is impossible for the cut off to be 650 if the average for macc is only 656 and the average for the MBT is below 650. The numbers don't add up.

I don't know. That's what she said. Maybe she was lying to me so that I'd shut up and stop asking them why I didn't get admitted. :oops:

Hi Miami415

I am an international student.....and here we donot have the GPA sys...the school had to determine that for me .As far as GMAT is concerned I have a pretty good score and also good experience.

Those of you who've had an interview pls share the interview questions.Do they ask about your goals in detail??? And do they ask in detail abt your experience??

Pls share.

I was rejected last year. I haven't heard anything from them yet this year. I'm still waiting too. They keep saying I'll hear from them soon, but....soon has come and gone. Waiting is driving me insane.

admission status is on the online application form. its a link at the bottom stating decision status.

my interview was short and pretty much went over my work and community volunteer experience. and then why acct and why usc and went over the minor transcript error. I think each interview is unique depending on your background and essay. the interview is very casual and low key. make sure you turn off your cell phone. :oops: it's nothing to be stressful about since cathy is pretty nice.

the webpage states you should have at least 600gmat to be competitive. i'm assuming if you have work experience it'll be some factor since some of the applicants only have their undergrad experience.

my exact dates are, app completed on 2/21, received email for invite on 3/05 from doris. interview 3/14, decision 3/20. i guess decisions vary with each applicant. i didn't receive on the spot.

did anyone that got accepted receive a scholarship? just curious

CONGRATS to everyone who got in! i'm still waiting for my admission status. my app was done by 2/1 but they didn't receive my transcript for some reason, and i wasn't aware of that until i called and by the time i turned in my transcript (this time IN PERSON) it was a few days past the deadline. the lady who took my transcript and the people i spoke to on the phone act like it's no big deal if you're a few days late and that it doesn't really matter. not sure if it really doesn't matter or they just don't know.

WOA i thought this thread was dead lol. it was only me and jlister and now it turned into this!


for those asking:


1. i submitted a complete application near the end of January/beginning of Feb (i forget). i was emailed an interview date about 3-5 weeks later (don't remember).

2. i was formally told of my acceptance 2 days after my interview through email. an email received the day before, however, hinted that i was in. this is just my interpretation.

3. i wore a black suit with silverish stripes. i wore a bluish/black striped tie + black dress shoes.

4. the interview questions that my interviewer asked me are posted on page 1

If you have any other questions please feel free to email me at tempxanga@yahoo.com, i don't mind at all. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
