That's what an email from Ross MBA blog stated. And I quote.

Quote:
In order to give all apps a proper review, interview invitations will be going out in two waves. The first group of invitations will be sent by the end of this week. The second (and final) batch will go out by the end of January. The timing of your interview invitation is not an indicator of the strength of your application. If you are not invited to interview, your application may be denied as early as Feb. 8, 2018 so that you may pursue alternative plans.


Got it. Well looks like today is a no go. Hopefully tomorrow.

Yay interview invite! But now I'm wondering if I can afford to attend the interview on campus. The plane tickets are $700 CAD...

Negligible in comparison to two year's tuition and foregone salary. Is driving an option?

Congratulations to all who received an invite! My hopes are sinking now! Trying to convince myself that they might still send it out till Jan 31st but chances are bleak. Hoping to receive an invite from other schools now!

Technically you could make +$50,000/annum during the MBA, through short-term work, which I've seen people do (purportedly; I'm not sure they're being truthful). But if this is true, then maybe you're not foregoing salary. Also, if your parents are paying for the MBA (or if you get a scholarship), then tuition is not really a burden to you directly.

Seriously doubt one's ability to work given the constraints of a full-time, competitive MBA program (student-led groups, travel, recruiting, coursework) Also, should your parents front the cost of the MBA, why not front the air fare needed to interview? Just a thought.

Agree.. Considering the hectic schedules of MBA students (few students have shared their daily scheduled on forum) doing part time work can be very challenging.

Would it be silly to hope they will sending more invites today and tomorrow? Were round 1 invites sent in a day or were they spread across a few days?
