Hi, I will be applying to Michigan next for the fall of 2009. I am wondering how generous is Michigan with scholarships? Is anyone on here willing to post thier stats and what kind of scholarships they received? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Ryan

Hey RR- I updated the first page with the matriculation info. Also dont know about holdengk. Looks like we have about 16 as far as I know- more than K or GSB :) Also, I believe the yield is higher for Ross as well. Kind of interesting to see that the yield numbers are in-line with USNEWS.

So who is actually headed to Ross. It doesnt have that info on the first page...I am curious since it seems that Ross is way up there along with GSB and Kellogg in terms of popularity.

I'm applying, its one of my R1 schools. I like what I have heard about the program so far, the only thing that concerns me is whether my wife will be able to find a job in Ann Arbor.


Nearly 1 year later I am almost in the same spot as when I wrote the 2nd post in this thread. Funny. :?

I just got back from the Consortium conference where there's a lot of recruiting for summer internships (yes, for 09). I'm interested in consulting, but there weren't many MC firms there so I started exploring internal strategy/consulting within companies. My perspective is that it's different by company. Some really want prior MC experience and it's a deal breaker if you don't have that. For others it's not so important. I would reach out to the specific companies you are interested in and see if you can find out. It's not uniform like MC or IB. Keep in mind these groups are pretty small. I was talking to a recuiter and she said 'yeah the internal strategy group is pretty big. It's like 20 people.' And that was at Pepsi.....

So a Ross alum told me today that corp strat groups in tech companies pretty much exclusively hire former management consultants. That is pretty disappointing news for me.

Oh, it definitely won't keep me from trying. And corp start certainly isn't my only interest, but it is something I find very appealing. It is disappointing to hear that some companies (probably) will not even consider me, but all I can do is try.

I was talking to a recuiter and she said 'yeah the internal strategy group is pretty big. It's like 20 people.' And that was at Pepsi.....


A person I reached out to during my application process works in the strategy group at a fortune 500 (in the 100-200 range) probably 15k employees or so and their strategy group was like a ten people. I was told that you either need to bring something special to the table or previous experience in the MC field for a big name and even with that they like projects in their industry. Pretty much they dont hire people in very often I guess and dont really even recruit MBAs actively for it. When its a small group that works closely together they can be incredibly picky about who they bring in.

It was a little discouraging to hear that but his advice was go for it like you would any job in MC or IB. Its all about being as prepared as possible, so do your research ahead of time, so you have to commit and be selective. Know everything you can about the company and industry (this helps if you have prior experience in it and are passionate about it). Its a must to know all the important names of executives, locations, subsidiaries (at least big ones), and very important is to know the trends for the industry. He said they would rather bring in someone who is extremely passionate about the industry and company because it is a good long term investment. If you can go in and nail tons of stuff about the company and can speak accurately and with passion about the industry you are going to have a much better shop. So if you want to go to Pepsi better stop drinking Coke right now.

He also said coming from a top school is going to be important, more so than some other rolls in the company (this may differ drastically company to company though). So Ross should give you a shot at a lot of companies. This guy was not a previous MC and was hired directly in to the strategy area, he did come from a big name MBA program and had relevant work experience as an engineer...he said he thinks it was the fact that he was pursuing just that type of job in that one industry that helped him beat out guys with consulting experience who were going for strategy jobs at lots of different companies in different industries.

I got my visa yesterday :)
I think that the fingerprinting procedure took longer than the actual interview :)... I cannot believe that they take prints of not only a couple of fingers but of ALL 10 fingers !!!. I hope they don't start to require toe prints in near future also ... that would be very time consuming.

Oh and they had to put a big and ugly stamp 'cancelled without prejudice' over my last visa, now when I apply for visas for other non-English speaking countries they might think I did something terribly wrong in the US to get such an ugly, big, black stamp over my previous visa :(

Anyways, overall everybody was really nice at the embassy and they were very well organized. I get visas for different countries almost every month, and from my experience I must say the US embassy has the most polite staff :)

If anyone hates football and doesn't plan to buy tickets, please buy them anyway and sell them to me so my wife can go. We will take you (and your spouse/SO if applicable) out to dinner for your trouble.
