OMG!!! I go out to lunch for an hour and then THREE admits!!!

Congrats branson on the admit! Maybe I'll see you at Haas too!

Congrats to R.E.D. too!

Finally, a HUGE congrats to helg! In some ways, I miss your "We can do it!" inspirational avatar now, but I'm sure that was part of the reason you got in! I can't wait to read your inspiring story of perseverance over TWO seasons! I'm so excited for you!!!!! :woohoo

20K scholarships eh? Wow, that is enough to sway quite a few people!

NC, don't give up yet, you WILL get in one of your top schools!!!

Congratulations to all Europeans (helg, R.E.D. and branson) on getting your admits!

Guys...

Does anyone know what percentage of all the applicants Ross interviews? How many of those who interview actually get accepted?

Hope anyone can help.

Congrats to all who have received acceptance letters!

I would seriously not worry too much about your interview. If you go back to November-December posts this thread, you will see some interview questions and feedback of gmatclub members. Both Dosa and I felt like we had a horrible interview. Nonetheless, we were admitted to Ross. I believe that the interview does not play as much role in the admissions decision in this particular school, so relax and make sure that you know the standard "why ross," "why MBA," and "how are you going to contribute while in school" questions.

Good luck!

I agree- I seriously thought that I seriously bombed the interview. Lasted like 15 mins and thought that my answers were not very clear. But as nervous said- the interview is just one other data point and at Ross might even carry lesser weight.
Phone interviews are tough but I had some notes close to me so that I could refer to them when my mind went blank. It may or may not work for everyone. There were not difficult questions per se - pretty standard ones.

Refer to the various experiences posted on this website- including that of ncprasad, nervous, tsaditya and you should be fine. Also refer to accepted interview database- thats quite valuable as well.

One person in Singapore has got their admit. I see my chances fadingggggggggggg.

Looking at my first round carnage I believe my second round is going to be no better. Congrats to all those who got in. I am going to be counting on you guys to review my essays and recommend me to the adcom when I apply next year.

Did anyone hear of admits from west coasters? I saw only 1 reported by someone in LA. I am hoping that more west coasters(bherronp: you and me) will get some good news on Monday. This is the last straw I am clutching to. :pray

Saurabh,

What kind of profiles do you and your wife have? It is very interesting to see both of you getting an admit in a good school like Ross .. specially considering that at least you are from such a competitive pool as well.

I am in! Got the call at around 4:00pm at the Friday night watering hole. No! It wasn't the beer talking. Just got home and wanted to post. I'm pretty excited, but would never want to go through the torment of waiting again.
