I don't know about what everyone else thinks, but Ross has been the worst application experience of any school I've applied to or am working on. The application (as in the actual system that handles your information), constant tease emails, and the ultimate "we have your decision but won't tell you for a while" are just not a good experience. It reflects poorly on the school in general.


Ross has actually been my best application experience thus far. I've found them to be really transparent about the process, and very forthright about how things are going. I really appreciate knowing that a decision has been made, and I expect that there will be a blog post in the next few days with an update as when we can expect calls to go out next week.

I'm sure many of you are checking in on the Kellogg forum as well. The mysteries around the future of interview-waived applicants and video essay date changes have made an already stressful process even more so. With that in mind, I like the fact that Ross has been so straightforward and drama-free.

Agree with that, I appreciate the transparency as well as the blog. Really helps shine a little bit of light on the process.

I would echo this, I think they've been fantastic about proactively updating and engaging with the applicant pool, and have found each interaction with them to present a very consistent image and story. Makes me feel good that decisions are made, and the next week is likely triple-checking (or more). Yeah I found their online system for the app a little less user-friendly than others, but all in all I appreciate their engagement, from my perspective has been much more than some other schools.

I contacted some people I met at the interview that might not have rushed straight to the forums, and they got the e-mail too. I think Ross has been incredibly transparent and modern in how they interact with their applicants. This Applicant Decision e-mail 10 days in advance was scary, but better when you realize it's the same for everyone.

I interviewed and got the email. It sounds like Ross calls people ahead of decisions being posted (12/19). Can anyone confirm that?

Hi Ross applicants, it sounds like you have your decisions coming out in the next few days. I got a request from a Ross applicant to analyze the Ross acceptance rate. It might be interesting for you to check out while waiting for your response.

Good luck!

FROM MBA Data Guru: Ross Acceptance Rate Analysis
Ross Acceptance Rate Analysis

I received a request from the0ther0n3 to analyze the Ross acceptance rate after he saw the Stern acceptance rate analysis. I had not been planning to look at Ross for a few weeks, but if you request data analysis from me, I will do my best to finish that analysis as fast as possible. I plan to post the Ross admission calculator online as soon as I have time to build that portion of the website, probably over Christmas break. In the mean time I will share some of the insights I got from building the predictive model.

Ross Acceptance Rate by GMAT
Obviously your chance of admission to Ross School of Business increases if you score higher on the GMAT. The good news is that Ross’s acceptance rate of 34% is significantly higher than almost all other business schools in the top 20. The Ross class of 2016 profile shows that the average GMAT and GPA are 702 and 3.4 respectively. The data used to create this analysis comes from GMAT Club. Of the applicants in my data set, 84% had GMAT of 700 or higher, which means that I am fairly confident about the relationship between GMAT and admissions in the 700’s but not as confident in the 600’s.

Image
To create the graph above, I used the average GPA from my data set which is 3.42 and then shifted the GMAT score in my model. The model takes into account the interaction of GMAT, GPA, years of work experience, undergraduate major and the industry you worked in.

Ross Acceptance Rate by GPA
Next I looked at how GPA affects Ross acceptance rate. I’m sure it is not a surprised to hear that a higher GPA increases your chance of admissions at Michigan school of business. Image

Ross Acceptance Rate: GMAT vs. GPA
The real question is which is more important for raising your Ross acceptance rate, GPA or GMAT? In the graph below I compare how much the admissions rate changes if I alter the GMAT or GPA by a standard deviation. A standard deviation is a measure of variance in a population or sample. Since I can’t compare the absolute variance because GMAT and GPA are on different scales, I compare how the shift of one standard deviation impacts the Ross MBA acceptance rate.

Image
As you can see the slope is steeper for the GMAT line. This means that Ross prefers applicants with a high GMAT over applicants with a high GPA. One standard deviation higher in GMAT increases acceptance rate by 22% while a standard deviation in GPA only increases chances of admission by 14%.

Other Ross Acceptance Rate Insights
similar to Harvard and Wharton, at Michigan the acceptance rate is noticeably lower for Indian applicants vs. non-Indian applicants, 17% vs. 41% respectively. Engineering majors have a lower chance of admission while liberal arts majors have a higher chance. Many schools are trying to increase the number of women in their program. The higher acceptance rate for liberal arts majors may reflect Ross trying to attract more women, however my data set is missing gender information. More years of work experience increases the chance of admission by around 2.5% per year. Also military applicants have a higher chance of admissions.

Good luck with your applications!

Interesting analysis - thanks for putting this together!

Does this take into account if you've been invited to interview? Might be interested to see the acceptance rates across GMATs / GPAs for those who have been interviewed.

solid email mea culpa

Yesterday an email was sent to all Round 1 applicants indicating that decisions had been posted. That email was sent in error. The Committee is still in the process of reviewing applications. Final decisions will be posted on Friday, December 19, 2014 at 12:00 PM EST.

Wow, that is a pretty big mistake. Although not as nearly as bad as when Fordham told 2,500 rejected applicants that they were accepted.

The original analysis did not take into account if you had been interviewed. However ask and you will receive. Here is acceptance rate by GMAT / GPA for those interviewed at Ross.

Good luck everyone, business school is awesome.

come on guys, let us stop talking about the so called glitch.
I understood this e-mail as a notice of how one can check the decision in case some guys for example are not available for call (for example on the meeting or travels) and eager to know the decision.
I appreciate school's attention to give me a beforehand a tool, which I can use to check the status of my application, regardless of mobile connection or call.

Hey everyone,

Perhaps I can shed some light on this. I applied to the Ross Weekend MBA program during the early decision round and was recently accepted. Though the application timing is a bit different from the full-time program, I would assume that the acceptance/denial process would be fairly similar. I submitted my application on November 6th. Interviewed on November 21st. On December 2nd I received a call around noon from the program director saying I was accepted. She also mentioned that I would be receiving an email with decision viewing instructions, which would be available after 3 P.M. that day (I think this is the email everyone here is referring to in the posts above). The next day, December 3rd, I received the formal congratulatory email and admission pack information that included a few PDF files of the actual acceptance letter, financial aid info, and myimpact information. Finally, yesterday December 10th, I received a certified mail packet from the school which included the official hard copy acceptance letter, a portfolio-type folder, a Michigan Ross flag. It was nice opening the package, as the first thing that you see is a large page that says "Congratulations, You're In!"

If anyone has any other questions let me know.
