Hello Everyone!
Why does Ross want to know about what other schools the applicant is applying for? How will the selection of schools affect the application?

I was wondering that too, I am guessing they are just collecting data to see where their applicants are also targeting and where they eventually end up.

To close the loop, they'll want to gather the data after the admissions process as well. That way they can see where the students got in and where and why the students ended up where they did.

Hi All,

I am almost done with my application and essays. However, I just wanted to know what kind of information can we share through the Additional Information section. I was thinking of sharing details of my failed entrepreneurial venture, which I haven't provided anywhere else in my application (except one line in my goals essay). I feel that it would be beneficial for me as my long term goal is to get in to entrepreneurship, and it will help portray my efforts to achieve that goal.

Thanks,
ersheet

That sounds like an optional essay to me. If there was no such thing as an Additional Information Question that's where I would add that information. Have you considered adding it there? Per a quick email to Ross, I used my additional information section to show the transcripts from the non-degree granting quantitative courses I've taken (outside of my undergraduate degree).

Hi,

Thanks for the prompt response. I was actually gonna use the optional essay for some other purpose, but i'll drop that idea now and use it for my entrepreneurial venture.

Thanks and all the best!!!

I spoke with the associate director of admissions about a very similar question actually! She said to just make sure everything you want to convey is in the essays/resume somewhere. I could even find a way to include that in the second essay regarding career path. You could say something along the lines of how the lessons learned from the failed venture gave you the motivation to pursue a Ross MBA. You could even list it as a bullet point in the 3rd essay since they supposedly prefer bullets over intense writing for that particular one. This is just my opinion though, just trying to help!

Btw, i am applying for the weekend program and am not sure if the essays are identical to the full time program. Here is what is for the weekend:
Complete both required essays:

What are you most proud of outside of your professional life? How does it shape who you are today? (up to 400 words)
What is your desired career path and why? (up to 250 words)
Optional Statement:

This section should only be used to convey information not addressed elsewhere in your application, for example, completion of supplemental coursework, employment gaps, academic issues, etc. Feel free to use bullet points where appropriate.


And according to recent applicants and people in admissions, you can write multiple "bullets" or ideas for the 3rd essay. I am using it to convey why my recommender is not my current supervisor/employer...Also, why I moved from Supply chain to non-profit back to Supply Chain lol....Hope this helps and ask any question you'd like, i live close by and am in contact with a few Ross Ambassadors. Good Luck!!

Anyone else having trouble previewing the academic transcripts?

I've tried multiple systems and browsers but can't preview them!

Any suggestions?

Thanks :)

Yes, I'm facing the same issue (since a few days now).

Seems to be some sort of bug, but I don't think it should cause any problem as long as the sizes of the actual and uploaded files match.

HI Guys !!

Just submitted the application to Ross. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Good luck to all.

I have self reported the GMAT scores but did not upload the unofficial score, since there was no option available. But the confirmation e-mail that I got says that "Though we will use unofficial test scores to begin evaluating your application, please contact the testing agency to have your official scores released to the University of Michigan as soon as possible if you have not done so already".

Can someone suggest what does it mean. Although, I shall call the office tomorrow, but if someone already has this clarity, please post it, so that applicants submitting on the last day can be benefited.

Regards !!

Should we wait for some time for the website come up or should we drop an email to the ad-com?

I submitted my app 4 hours back, there was no system issue then, I would suggest you guys write to adcom rather than waiting till the last moment.
