Waitlisted and invited to off campus or Skype interviews. I accepted the waitlist but not sure if it's worth it. Was rejected at 2 M7s R2 and this is my 3rd app. We'll see.

By the way I find it super weird that I was waitlisted without having been invited to interview before. I suppose that puts me behind those who got invited to interview the first time then got waitlisted.

Oh well!

Round 3 decisions were posted at noon today, but they said on the blog that waitlist is on a rolling basis through June and potentially beyond.

Youngdude, they were waitlisting people with and without interviews in earlier rounds too. Not clear to me if one group is ahead of or behind the other. It's at least not a bad sign that you've been invited to interview.

"The majority of decisions on waitlisted applicants will occur in May and June. U.S. applicants will remain in consideration until August 15. International applicants will be considered until July 1, due to visa processing requirements."

That's from the website. So I suppose those in the US can wait up to till August to know for sure. Although I'd guess if you aren't in by June then it's over.

I almost give up to off on the waitlist.

Actually, about 10 days ago, I got an e-mail that an admission director liked my application and asked me still interesting about Ross?
However, after replying, I did not get any decision....

Getting that kind of email is typical?

International candidate...I also got on the waitlist yesterday and the text said that I need to accept the waitlist by 20th March 2015 and not 20th May 2015. :lol:
I am surprised they put people in waitlist without interview :shock:

I'm absolutely surprised that I got waitlisted without having been invited for an interview till I was waitlisted.

I said in a previous post that I'm presumably behind those who got interviewed THEN waitlisted. I still think I'm objectively behind them, BUT I think an advantage I have is that through the interview, I can bring something they haven't seen before to sway the waitlist decision. So we'll see!

Best of luck to everyone.

Hey everyone,
Just wanted some clarity on the interview process.Any advice on which one of the two options is better for the interview-In person with a Ross Alumnus or Skype interview with a current MBA student? I live in Bangalore,India so if I take the option of an interview with an alumnus, will it be scheduled in the same city? Also, if you guys could post some of your interview experiences, it would be great. Honestly, I wasn't expecting an invite since it's mid-May already, but it came as a pleasant surprise last night.
Thanks guys!

In person interviews are always much better then skype.
for interview questions you may want to scroll this thread back and forth and find interview reports/questions posted by other members.

In person is definitely better than Skype. Less awkward.

As for the interview, I went to campus and interviewed with a 2nd year MBA student, so it might be a little different with an alum. But the adcom directors stressed before the interviews, as long as you can clearly get across why MBA, and especially, why Ross in particular, you should do well.

def talk about MAP and how that fits into your goals / will make you a better leader! also if you can share very specific tidbits about the ross mba experience and how that differs from other schools i think that helps. if you read soojin's blog one of the earlier entries mentioned their selection criteria and one of them was "go blue"-ishness. i have a pretty ordinary profile and was admitted with $40k scholarship sooo i think that strategy worked for me : ). good luck!

Nothing to say. Godspeed. She's done a good job, although she won't be remembered like Paul Danos will. And with the next dean, UMich has a great opportunity to further boost Ross' image and rankings position.

I have a not so good experience with In-person interview. So it is same for both I guess. I got a straight reject post Interview. I actually flew to Delhi for Team exercise and In person interview. Ross actually overbooked one of the alum so much so that he cancelled my slot last moment and I actually had to force another alum to take my interview as I went to Delhi for both the interview and team exercise.

It didn't work out for me. Hope it works out for you.

All the best.

P.S. I am also from Bangalore
