I'm glad the deadline is a ways away. I'm wavering big-time. Awesome experience, but any of the trips would literally eat what remains of my savings after paying the deposit. We'll see. You guys make any decisions on your top 3 (4?) yet?

Haha, I totally know how you feel. I would go personally if it wasn't that me and my gf have to do the couples trip (which is mexico). I think it's good bonding experience. :D then again I'm totally being hipocritical since we're not going :D

Has anyone requested for an I-20 from Ross? How long do they take to process it typically?

It takes about 7-14 working days for the processing.
including courier times (sending docs to the school and school sending the I-20 to you) around 13 - 20 working days.

I just got mine today. took total of 15 calendar days. but i handed in the documents personally during the GBR.

Hi all, just found this thread.

I signed up for M-Treks in mid April and ranked the Peru trip to Machu Pichu as my #1. My 2 and 3 were trips to Spain and Thailand.

I was really concerned about savings at first but after talking with a bunch of second years at GBR who went on the trips, they ALL said it was the best experience of their time at Ross thus far. They sold me so I put down the deposit since the trips are usually first come, first served if they fill up.

Figure it buys me a couple months to really make sure it's something I want to do, but what's another \$1-2k with all the other loans, lol.

Hi all. I am an international student and planning to go to the Peru M-Trek. Which means I will go to AA first then out of the US again. The processing time to get an updated I-20 before leaving the US for a trip is 5 days.

Does that mean that I need to arrive 5 days before the M-trek?
Would anyone know if the consulates would cancel B1/B2 visa after giving my f-1 visa?
If not, could I use my B1/B2 visa for my first entry?

Does anyone know what kind of placement Ross has for social venture funds? In the admit binder, there's a big picture of someone who MAP'd/interned at Acumen.

That's a very small, very specific field. Like you mentioned there have been people at Acumen in the past. I also know one (or maybe two) people will be at REDF this summer. Other than that I'm not sure. I know one of the guys heavily involved in the social venture fund, but I can't remember if his internship was in a VC or social venture fund.....I think if you're interested it's certainly possible, it's just not something that many people at Ross (or anywhere) actively pursue.

Thank you for the info. I was thinking of exploring this option for my MAP or internship. Looking to gain some more entrepreneurial/international experience. If I can find one that does international development in sustainable tech/energy, that would be perfect!

Have any admits received new scholarships from Ross in the past few weeks?

I'm going to be in Ann Arbor on Friday looking at apartments. I'm looking at 1BR and efficiencies around 10~15 min walk from school. Does anyone have any feedback/opinion on some of the rental companies like Issa and Arch Realty? I'm looking at properties around 121 E Hoover, Packard, South State and Liberty St.

Cheers!

Hey, quick question for you guys. So there's a local admitted Ross student get-together coming up. It's organized by students, not by the school, but I think a few alumni are coming, too. What's the dress code for something like this? It's at a restaurant/bar. I don't really feel like dressing up in dress pants/shirt, or have the time to, since I'm going there straight after work. Is it appropriate to go in jeans & collared sleeveless shirt? Thanks.

I think that's fine. As long as it fits for the restaurant/bar you're going to, don't worry about it. Social gatherings like that are meant to be casual. If it's more bus casual to formal, others would specify or would be sponsored by the school or a company.

So guys, let's do updates! How's everyone doing? Where are you (if you are) M-Trekking? Milias, are you for sure yet? Where are you living in Ann Arbor? You guys still working? What are your summers looking like? Anyone coming through Chicago?

Thanks. I ended up going in jeans and a collared shirt, which turned out to be fine.

I'm doing good. I'm definitely coming to Ross. The M-Trek thing is a little messed up for me. Kinda my own fault, b/c I registered so late, since I was waiting on CBS. All my top choices were full (South Africa, Norway, Iceland, and Belize), so they stuck me to Bangkok, which is being canceled. Just my luck. So I'm staying on the Bangkok list, until they figure out a new destination. Then I'll be deciding whether I'll go to that one or get on the waitlist for my preferred treks.

Planning to go to the Ross Rendezvous in June for some apartment-hunting. Still need to get my tickets and get the day off from my summer internship sponsor. I'm also in the process of moving to a summer sublet, since my current lease's up at the end of the month. So yea, things are a bit hectic/crazy right now.

I so could use a vacation right about now.

1) I met milias (nice meeting you by the way, dude)! Indeed, he was wearing a collared shirt and jeans that was wholly appropriate for the occasion.

Yup, I finally met a GMAT Clubber in person! It was very nice meeting you, too, Anu.

2) I got my apartment at GBR and now I feel really lucky because I seem to be paying significantly less for a reasonably close location (1 mile), amenities (dishwasher, ac, garbage disposal) and an aesthetically pleasing apartment (alas, I got the last one). However, since I have decided to join the Ross gym and I don't want to trudge to school like an overburdened sherpa, I am on the lookout for a parking spot. I was about to buy one but then the dude started getting non-responsive, which makes me think he wants a longer tenant than September to April.

Dishwasher! Drool.

There's a bunch of Rossers in Chicago this summer (including me) and a few signed up to lead cafe chats. We can organize a get together, even if it's just a few of us.

Ok, I'll do my own:

- I'm great! Although totally overwhelmed: 12 work days left to train my replacement, supposed to register for classes (SNRE) June 1, don't entirely understand financial aid, and haven't had a minute of time to even look at craigslist, let alone drive to A2 to check out housing. Soon! 3 weeks! ALthough summer is always so busy I don't even notice it happening... hopefully this time off work will allow me a little beach-sitting.

- Not doing an MTrek. Going to Ireland with family mid-June, then for an extended hiking trip in the Rockies in August. I'd love to do Costa Rica, Anu. I got the Kayak app for my phone so I can constantly re-check fares.

- Yay, Milias!

- Also Yay for Chicago! We should definitely meet up. The Chicago Google group is super active, too.
