[quote="venky12"]Guys. How are the interviews coming along ? Any outside of normal experiences?


Interviewed with the Alum an hour ago. The interview was pretty straight forward and interactive. The Alum started with introducing himself and talking about his time at Ross. Then he switched over to my experiences and asked me to tell about myself. Then the usual interview: why MBA, what goals, why Ross, a couple of behavioural questions on leadership experience and then questions for him. The interview lasted about 45 minutes. Call it interaction rather than interview. The Aum was very nice and calming. No curve balls thrown my way.


Thank you for sharing your experience.

Also just interviewed with an alum and this matches my experience. Only question I wasn't expecting was "what other programs are you looking at?"[/quote]
Are we supposed to be honest and tell them about other schools?

I'm not sure - I sort of dodged it and said I'm looking at other programs that also focus on immersive action based learning and have strong social impact resources etc., so I didn't name any specific schools. Interviewer seemed fine with that answer and didn't push further.

I know this is technically possible but it sounds a little like they're just trying to be polite and don't really mean that. Similar to the team exercise where if you have the option to participate and you choose not to then they say it won't hurt your chances - but does anyone really believe that?


Yup. I believe that. I know truckloads of people who did not go for the team exercise and got in. I also know someone who was interviewed - then waitlisted and then dinged last year while another one who was NOT interviewed in R1 but was in R2 (he improved his GMAT from 740 to 770) and got in.


Souvik,

Do you know if this guy gave his GMAT after R1 results or after that?

Has anyone sent post-interview Thank You email to their interviewer? I do not have the email id of the alum who interviewed me. We were communicating with each other through the Ross interview scheduling portal and I sent him a Thank You note using the same portal. However, I am not sure if he got the email or not, as I did not hear back from him. Anyone in a similar situation.

Would imagine if they received your previous communications via the portal they likely received your Thank-You and simply did not respond (which happens a lot of the time with thank-you's).

Relax! I asked my interviewer for his mail ID and sent him a thank you note within an hour. Its been a couple of days now but I have not heard from him. ;) So, it's not necessary that the Alum will reply after getting your thank you note. He'll do what he has to do. Just hope that he submits a great feedback for you. :-)

When you received your interview invitation, did you respond with a thank you to the email that confirmed your scheduled time or no?

Don't know the exact timing. It would be send in the agenda on Nov 10th. However, it is in late morning / early afternoon as mentioned in the email. Plan accordingly.

Just curious if anyone is thinking Ross may finally crack top 10 next year? It seems to be stuck in 11-13 range in most rankings and they just received a decently large donation and I wonder if that may finally push it into that top 10 discussion.

Done with the Skype interview. It was conversational and revolved solely around my work experience. I was asked to recall specific instances of leadership, overcoming difficulty etc. Be prepared for lots of structured behavioral questions.

I always consider Ross in top 10, isn't it like m7 + Tuck/Fuqua/Ross?

Too 10 is super debatable. I’d make it a top 12 with Tuck Ross Fuqua Yale and Anderson.

Top 12 sounds right. Haas, Stern, Tuck, Yale all ahead. Fuqua and Ross kind of similar. UCLA, Darden, Cornell also in the mix.
