90% sure... 5% Tepper (if some $$$) 5% (miracle needed) Sloan calls for an interview or waitlists...
I keep hearing greater thing about Ross as I reach out to friends and their colleagues in Chicaga loop area.

BTW, you calling Tuck "the dream school" and Ross "the safety school" cracks me up.
It's as if you are paid $100,000 a year as salary and your "Dream Lottery Prize" is $102,000... :lol:


They each are so close in many different rankings...

Still not coming to the GBR? :?:

I would really want to come to the GBR but unfortunately I just cannot because of work :(

Anyways... It is not like Ross is really a safety school, but somehow I liked Tuck better... but I always liked Ross a lot also. I know I will have the same opportunities out of both schools. And I think I will like the independent life more at Ross than the dorm life at Tuck.

But I am hurt now :( my ego got bear stearned today :( I always get what I want !!! and Tuck denied me :( I guess it was a good wake-up call :)

And at the end of the day I would rather be a Ross Fellow than an ordinary student at Tuck :) ... now where is my admit binder ?!?!?

Guys, are you experiencing "funny stuff" on myImpact website today (Saturday,22nd) ?
The web pages keep refreshing themselves every 2-3 seconds before you can see anything.
You have to be really fast to click on a link, and at times, that linked page does the same
crazy refresh cycle...

I tried from 2 different PCs, same result...

Happy Easter !

Hi guys,

Soon the new ranking of US News will be announced. It was quite funny with betting about the day when the admit calls will be rolling for R2 admits :)

Lets bet on Ross place in new ranking. The rankings for last 3 year are as following:
2007 - 11
2006 - 11
2005 - 10

I bet that Ross will get into top 10 at 10th place. :lol:

You?

I would say given the buzz that the new building in generating, Ross should move up to 9th.

I think number 9 !!!

even though Ross fell in the rankings of the Financial Times this year :(

Also, do you guys know when Businessweek rankings come out? they should come out soon, right? Ross has a sweet spot there now :)

I seriously doubt that. What parameter of the US News Questionnaire would factor in a building that is not even ready yet? The building might have an effect two or three years down the road.

I really cant wait for the ranking. It will be another factor in my decision-making. I predict Kellogg will suck! ;)

The effect will no doubt be more pronounced a couple of years down the road, but I do believe that it has generated sufficient interest within the applicant community to push apps up at Ross to a greater extent than at some others in the same league (Stern, Duke, etc).

Definitely within the GMATClub community! So far Ross shows the biggest love for the GMATClubbers, with the stunning 69% admit rate :-D

US News places a lot of importance on selectivity and yield. Last year Ross had pretty impressive %'s- 20% and 70%, better than some of the UE's. This might just cause it to jump up a spot or two.
