i'm wondering if that's a consideration in the timeframe it takes for a response
also... did the Consortium interview also count for each of the schools applied to???

If you applied to Ross thru Consortium round 2 then will be notified of Ross's decision on their deadline date for R2 with all applicants. Whether or not you need another interview (other than Consortium) is school specific. For Ross I was invited to interview. Hope that helps.

Considering R1 interview rate around %60, I think there is still pretty good chances to be called for interview. For example in applicant411.com R2 interview rate is just %30. I am sure that it definitely must go up.

Btw are the schools, particularly Ross, are interviewing less percentage of applicants in R2 comparing to R1?

FYI

Betweekn Jan 9 (deadline) and March 15 (decision day) there are 72 days

Feb 8 was the 36th day since the deadline, therefore have already 'survived' more than half of the waiting period... less than half more to go :)

PS the wait is killing me :(

Yup, I agree with todoornot. Even in R-1, it looked like Ross invited all the Desi applicants towards the end. Well, at least I'm going to keep telling myself this until the first Desi gets his/her invite. Then I'll start stressing :)

this is quite perplexing. I see no interview invites from Ross whatsoever on any of the forums. Has Ross finished inviting the more strong applicants and is now busy comparing the others ? The % of invites is quite low compared to R1. What is the last date by which Ross would finish sending its invites ?

I think the number of applicants is low because Ross is getting more into invitation based interviews. So this year the total number of interviews can be lower and accordingly total number of admit/interviewed ratio can be higher.
On the other hand Ross is more like safety school for M7 applicants. Therefore they must be interested to give more interviews (accordingly more admits) in order to ensure appropriate yield.
However lets wait. There is still lot of time...and lot of Tuesdays :)

Does any one know if the interviewer will have access to the application before or after the interview or is it just blind (meaning all he knows is a resume) ?
