When I am trying to view the admission decision, under New and Prospective Students section, it keeps showing "System is Unavailable"
Any ideas on this particular issue?

Unable to help. Just musing, why don't people just email tech support right away instead of posting on a public forum where everyone else is as clueless?

Surprised I got dinged but had an off campus interview + no extra signs of interest = So it goes!


I think this is underrated advice actually. From my results so far, the schools I went the extra mile with such as visiting pre-interview, visiting during interview, mentioning alums/current students in my apps, etc are the ones I have gotten accepted to or at least received interviews from.


sulmona: are you going to GBR & BDW at the same weekend?

The Michigan Ross ‘Admissions Formula’  [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 18 Mar 2015, 09:37
The admissions team at Michigan Ross School of Business is about a week away from making their admit calls to Round 2 applicants in the U.S. and internationally, and all decisions will be posted by Friday, March 13th.

If there’s one question every applicant wishes he or she could know the answer to, it’s “What are my chances of admission?” With that in mind, MBA Admissions Director Soojin Kwon liststhe qualities they are looking for in applicants, and has posted a video explaining the complicated formula that is used to make those tough decisions at Michigan Ross.

As you’ll discover in the video, there are some factors you control, some factors controlled by the admissions team, and yet other factors no one can control or predict since they fluctuate each year according to the current applicant pool.

If you’re on the fence about applying in the final round, you might feel better knowing Michigan Ross saves space in the class for Round 3. “One of the things we see year after year is that we get some really strong candidates in Round 3,” Kwon writes, noting, “We’ve found it to be candidates who may have decided later in the game that they want to pursue an MBA.”

When you decided is less important than why you want to and how you’ll contribute the Ross community, the director explains. So if you’re submitting your application on March 23rd, be sure to answer those questions fully and use the optional essay space if you need to in order to explain your reason for applying later in the cycle.

Best of luck to those awaiting a decision on your application next week!

Anyone know when the exact deadline is for round 3? It says March 23rd, but unlike most other schools, there isn't an exact time, like 5 pm central time or something.

Nope, but anxiously waiting here too. The blog post didn't say anything about what time the interview invites would come out. It could be a long and stressful day!

They didn't describe it as a deadline, but today. From the admissions blog:

"Interview invitations will go out on Monday, March 30. We’ll have one on-campus date for the Team Exercise: April 20. One-on-one interviews can be completed on-campus (in conjunction with the Team Exercise) or with one of our alumni interviewers around the world."

For what it’s worth, I called Ross admissions earlier and they said: 1. Emails will be going out throughout today; 2. Only invitations emails are going out.

What I got from that is: 1. It may be a long day; 2. Those not getting any emails are most likely dinged (they said “most likely, but you never know”, and “all admission decisions are released on the same day in May”).
