Hi Everyone,

I'm getting ready to hit submit for round 2 and I was wondering if anyone has advice on what to do given a situation like the following? My parents both graduated from the same MBA program, and the Ross application asks for the highest degree earned by your parents and from what school. If I answer the what other schools are you applying to honestly, then I have to include the school my parents are alumni of, and I fear that the fact I also applied there and my parents are alumni, makes it look like Ross is not my first choice. Should I leave this off?

Thanks!

Apples and oranges. I don't think it matters. Ross can be your top choice even if your parents went to a different school - for many reasons: fit, geography, courses, career aspirations etc. to name a few.

I think you are coming from the Detroit point of view. Times have changed now - Ross is a bit of everything for everyone with a relatively strong footprint in Consulting (all top 10 schools are strong in consulting) closely followed by Manufacturing and Technology sectors. Ross's latest placement report - https://michiganross.umich.edu/sites/de ... ll-nc_.pdf.

Consulting - 34%
Manufacturing - 29%
Technology - 15%

Thanks for the response and link to the placement report. Is Ross considered a "Top 10" b-school? I see Ross placed in the top 10 in some rankings but in others they place 11-13 as well. Does this matter at all to employers?

Ross is considered among the best/top B-schools. Instead of generalising how employers look at Ross (which they do, very favorably), I'd suggest looking at whether the companies/industries that you're interested in working at post your MBA.

I wouldn't suggest looking solely at rankings and trying to figure out how schools are. Look deeper at your own interests. Rankings are only they starting point in B-school search and should not be used as the sole criterion for selecting a B-school.

Ross is known as a marketing school, and a variety of industries hire for marketing (tech, CPG, auto). But I think a majority of our students go into consulting.

By the way... nobody ever talked on this thread about uploading a photograph ...
I find it unique to Ross' application. Did you guys really keep the photo to 5 x 7 aspect ratio and with 75 or 150 dpi?
Thoughts...

Hi Folks,

Am I supposed to submit optional essay if I chose former direct supervisor and not the current direct supervisor?
'If you are not selecting a direct supervisor as your recommender, please address why in the optional essay.' does not address former and current supervisor difference.

Thanks.
