Alright i’m going to be one of those mean guys on the Internet and tell you that most of your questions can be answered with simple googling. In fact, it will be a disservice to answer these questions here. Google them and learn more about the program you are applying to.

Actually midnight is from a third party website. If I were you, I'd call the admissions office right away and not leave the LOR until last moment. Things can go very wrong at the eleventh hour.

I'm trying not to but all I can do is remind my boss on Friday and then again Monday morning to send it. Hopefully Ross sends out reminder e-mails.

I can try. I'm going to call admissions and just get the official word on the deadline because I know he won't leave the office Monday without sending it and that would be easiest for him probably.

Any applicants from social sector here? I have a mediocre score of 710 and not sure if I stand a chance at Ross. Although I'm making sure that my application comes out in the best way possible!

Not from social sector but can tell you two things that are absolute:

1) the GMAT score is just part of the application. GPA/Essays/Interviews/Recommendations make up far more of a majority than your GMAT score as long as you pass a threshold (often considered around 700 depending on GPA).

2) If we told you there wasn't much chance of you getting in, would you still apply and put a lot of effort into the application? I imagine the answer to this question is "yes", in which case it doesn't really matter that much does it? All you can control is the passion you put into your application, best of luck! :)

While I agree with what Redfield has said, I honestly think that there’s a sea of difference between a 710 and a 740. Especially if you’re an Indian candidate, the threshold that Redfield mentioned tends to be higher than 700. Why don’t you figure out the gmat scores of people who got in last year from your region (and background if possible) from the decision tracker?

Completely agree! over 700 is a good general rule but you also have to consider the average gmat of the people in your applicant pool since that is who you will compete against.

Just wondering has anyone generated a copy of application (PDF format) in the portal? I know many other schools do offer a link to the PDF file at the end of application forms, but I couldn't find that in Ross' application system. I usually use it to check my application before submitting...

Hi everyone! Is anyone else having issues accessing Ross' application link? I have my materials ready but just can't get the site to load since yesterday. Wondering if it's a localized problem or a more widespread issue.
