Also consider that saurabh, me, dosa and a bunch of others on the BW forum interviewed in the last week and were all admitted. So, just be happy about your interview invite. It simply suggests that Ross is interested in you. An early invite,however, does not neccessarily imply that they are more/less likely to admit you than admitting someone who gets invited to interview later.

manylander, I was interviewed early along with helg, red, nervous, and bherronp. Helg, red (both Russians), and I (Canada) are internationals, while bherronp and nervous are from the states. I went through a similar thought process before and after my interview and I think the process is random. All five of us got admits. In any case, the fact that they want to interview you means that they are interested in you and that to me is most important. Good luck!

Or maybe it is totally geographical (Darden and I are from Europe, but this other dude I know with 760 is American, so here goes this theory)

Maybe some R1 people can share us their insights. Especially the ones interviewed early on.

Brainstorming time!!!!

Here was told a lot about correlating sheep and S&P :) Better concentrate not on why you were chosen but what you could present during the interview, what points would you like to stress, what points you want to elaborate that you touched less in essays. It's time not for data mining but for info mining, trying various types of search in Internet to learn more about Ross, what you like in the school, what really distinguishes it from other schools. I would recommend zachary blog from previous pages. It tells a lot about the atmosphere in school, about MAP, IMAP, projects that do not exist in this form in other schools.

GuyS thanks for all your quick two cents. :idea:

After clobos's clear explanation, it looks like there is no reason to look for any kind of structure. an interview is a good thing, if you are a gmatclubber (looks like) it's even a better thing!

This whole process made me borderline paranoid. I am trying to deduct a patternt from anything and everything.

Thanks for helping!

Hi manylander,

I have spent a lot of time thinking/analyzing about the invite patern of Ross and I have come to some similar conclusions as you. I think the poeple they interview first they either really like or have the most doubts about. For the early invites I think they look at a few data pointes such as GMAT, GPA, country of origin (for diversity), years of work experience, and company. And I also think that they have not read the essays yet.
Also, what I have noticed is that early admits who get interviewed by and adcom member are the ones who are the 'in trouble' ones, while early invites who interview with a student are from the group of the most favorite applicants. And it makes sense, because the adcom does not need a lot of reasurance for the best aplicants and therefore the adcom does not need to waste time interviewing them. But the adcom would sure like to know more about the 'in trouble' aplicants and therefore they interview these personaly :)
Also ... it is interesting how some people who got interviews got dinged at the end, while some poeple who did not even get an interview got waitlisted and terefore are still not out of the game :)
I have learned in life that nothing is ever random. And I am sure interview invites are not sent in random order :) there is some logic/pattern to it.... and I think the best/worst candidates get the invites first.... so let's hope we are in the best group :) .... I am hoping for an interview with a student! :)

Do you guys think being called early to an interview (within a week) means you are in the group they want to include or get rid of first?

I know three people (one outside this site) who have been called quickly for a R2 interview and all have 700+ GMATs. But I assume the rest who applied here are most, if not all, 700+ scorers. I think there is no way they can read through all the applications and call in the ones they liked. There's got to be something tied to GMAT in their method. That is the only solid part of the application that can yield a quick analysis. Reading the essays, recs, etc. will take forever.

My conclusion is that they call 700+ applicants which they are really in favor of or are likely to eliminate. This will give them a better grasp on available space for the rest of the pool.Once they are decided what to do with the outliers (good or bad) with 700+, they will continue on with the rest.

Applied thru the Consortium and got the ding from Ross today. Sucks mostly because I've been a HUGE fan of Michigan sports since birth (my Dad is from Detroit) and they can't repay the favor, lol.

This is all going over much better because of my Cornell admit. Gotta keep it in perspective.

svrider -Ross does WL without an interview. Last year 'michiboy' over at b-week was in the same boat, WL in R1 without an interview. He got off the WL successfully later on.

Robin and svrider: You guys might want to get in touch with him- he is very helpful. You could also check out his blog http://www.rainierisms.com/ and look for posts with tag Waitlist. Good luck



THanks dosa_don. That was helpful. Do you think sending a supporting letter from a Ross Alumni whom I contacted during the admissions process would be helpful?

If you use your real name in your e-mail address, your real name is pretty soon discoverable via researching your profile :)
