I am from India. Are any other applicants from India still waiting for the interview call or have already received the call?


All the interview invites for R1 were sent in mid-october. Ross doesn't do rolling invites. I think you wait until December to see if they move you to the R2 on the waitlist or release you with a Ding. Sorry!

(there is post from Soojin detailing the above on the website)


Thanks for the info...I just read the admissions blog...
Still fingers crossed... Hope I get moved to R2...

For all the Bangalore GMAT aspirants, Top one percent GMAT by Sandeep Gupta is starting its new batch. Sandeep Gupta is Asia's best GMAT teacher. He trains GMAT aspirants for 99th percentile. The institute guarantees a 760, if you promise to give them 360 hours.
All my GMAT friends, you should definitely try out the online or classroom course



360?!? Small price to pay for perfection I guess

Just a Quick Interview Debrief for those who are about to be interviewed:

Interview was extremely conversational and it was conducted by 2nd year student who luckily had similar career goals as I have.

Points of Discussion:
(It was naturally a very resume driven conversation since they only have our resumes)

Walk me through your resume..
A teamwork experience.. ( Primarily from resume too)
Difficult person in a team experience and how you reacted or managed?
How would your boss describe you ( I stressed for more bad qualities than good !! :D )
Two experiences from my resume were discussed ( Make sure you know your resume)
WHY MBA? WHY ROSS? CAREER GOALS?

Last 5 minutes were given to ask questions and I asked about consulting and social life at Ross.

Irrespective of the outcome, please dont stress out as this one will be extremely conversational. Try to enjoy it ! Smile ! the person opposite you was at your place an year ago so he understands what you are going through!!

Best of Luck to all of us !!

This is really helpful - thank you!

Can you clarify if the questions about your resume were, "I see on your resume..." OR "Tell me a time when..."(and they just happened to be on your resume).
I hope that question is clear!

Thanks

Does anyone from India plan to attend this conference? It's a UM conference, not specific to Ross.

Thanks for the info. As for the team questions, were those the only two teamwork questions asked? Just curious as to how much emphasis they put on teamwork in the interview with the team exercise happening right before/after the interview.

I didn't go for team exercise since I am based in Pakistan and interviewed on Skype

Visited Ross for on-campus interview on 7th of November.
There was Welcome, Interview, team exercize, Q&A with currents tudents, campus tour. It was an amazing day at Ross!
The event was very well organized. Team exercize was funny and collaborative, nothing difficult. I liked it.

Interview questions:
1) Walk me through your resume
2) ST and LT career goals?
3) Why MBA?
4) Why Ross?
5) How you will contribute?

Interviewed with an Alumni. Most common advice - Keep your story straight

Basics

Walk through your resume post under-grad (Highlight promotions, if any)
Why transition to MBA
What are short term and long term goals

Behavioural

What is your leadership style?
How would you begin working with a new team?
How will you manage a nightmare team-member?
An inspiring leader and why?
A set-back?
Two industry trends?

Best of luck!!

Can anyone provide any insight as to how the Tauber Institute interview works ? Also, does Tauber also release their admissions decision on the same date as Ross ?

The Tauber Interview is less formal and the onus is really on your interviewer (2nd year Tauber student) to lead. There were a few set questions, but nothing behavioral if I remember correctly.

In the application form where we are supposed to upload our resume, there is an instruction that the margin of the resume needs to be 1 inch. How critical is this guideline? Can I ignore it?

I will have to cut a lot of good stuff because of it.

Just a couple of weeks until R1 decisions come out! Only thing that seems to distract at this point is working on R2 applications :wink:

The margins on my resume were less than 1 inch, and they invited me to interview.

I'm just pretty sure they don't want an entire page from corner to corner filled with black font. Just make sure it looks nice from a format perspective (i think mine was .5 inches on both sides), and it's free of grammatical/spelling errors. They aren't looking for reasons to cut you.
