Does Ross tend to interview a sizable chunk of its applicants?


Found this interesting blog on acceptance % post interview stage. At Ross there is a ~60% chance of getting admitted after interviews.

Not sure how much stock I take into this. Kellogg interviews the vast majority of candidates (probably what, 95%+?) with an acceptance rate of about 20% yet if you interviewed as the majority of applicants have it nearly doubles to 36%? Can someone provide a reason this might be or am I probably right in being a bit dubious of these figures?

That said I like the idea of it being a 60% for Ross either way :D

You're correct. Per the author the data is taken right from GMATClub over 3 years. So I imagine many people did not bother reporting an interview (since its up for everyone) but reported getting accepted afterwards.

Let me be happy in my bubble of 60% please :)

Do you guys think more invites will be sent out today, or is it done for this round?

Does this mean that Ross did send dings as well?
I guess then unless I receive a ding e-mail, there is still a chance.

It pains me to tell you that the admissions team had told me that all invites go out at once. Best wishes for ISB and other schools. I am sure you'll be through.

Wow! all the slots for Nov. 18th (on-campus) were done by the time I woke up.

I am wondering if we can have the GMAT score on the resume we provide for the interview. I had the score on my 'application' resume, but since the interviewer would only see the resume, I do not want it to be perceived in a wrong way. Any thoughts?

I would think not. Just my opinion but they're looking for fit, that's why the format is so conversational, they want to know are you a good fit for the culture. You can put the GMAT down but I believe that GMAT is primarily for the admissions office while a resume is for experiences.

I noticed that they say the interviews are weighted equally but if you watch the video on the admissions blog it says if you skip the team interview you're "missing out on a chance to make another positive impression." Wonder how much the team interview helps. I talked with a student ambassador and they said if you do well on the team interview you're pretty much golden but im not sure how accurate that is.

Everyone here is talking about team-exercise and interview, on-campus/off-campus, or are a little unhappy about the ding.
I, on the other hand, have no idea what to feel in the absence of an email :P
