Perhaps he would have applied much earlier from the deadline.

I got a "application submitted" mail yesterday and they would contact me if they find any component of my application missing...

Hey Neo,

It doesn't seem legit to me. It could be an invite for their Global MBA program or something else.

Ross invites come out in one huge wave and that wave pretty much breaks the Internet, so you'll know when it hits [WINKING FACE]

All the best man!

I have a dilemma I thought one of you could help me with. I'm a teacher and pretty much tied to my classroom. I have three personal days a year, otherwise I can't miss work. When it comes to interviewing at bschools, I can never stay for more than half a day, since I have a job I have to be back for on Sunday mornings too.

An on-campus interview is important for me, since my really non-traditional background makes off-campus a real gamble. And if I interview at Ross, I almost certainly won't be able to do the group exercise. I know they say that won't be held against you, but what's the truth here? Will it be a red flag?

Since you're already visiting the school, I;ll strongly suggest that you participate in the group event thingy.
Whatever admissions officers say, additional effort on the part of candidate is always appreciated and it strengthens one's candidacy a lot.

I didn't interview on campus, so I can't remember exactly the schedule, but someone that went could help you. I'm pretty sure the interviews were in the morning and the group thing around lunch time. So you could probably do those 2 and take off. They also had atleast one day scheduled on a Saturday, so a late flight Fri and Sat presumably you wouldn't miss anything.

The interviews occur first in the morning, immediately followed by the group exercise (and then lunch). I think the group exercise wrapped by 11:30-noon-ish, at which point you could duck out during or right after lunch.

Yup, waiting and hoping - 19th is coming pretty soon thankfully.

Group activity wise I don't think any prep can be done, but interview just making a list of likes and potential questions + standard job interview prep

I do not see any update on Ross' blog (after Soojin's post on Dec 18)? Would it be possible for you to share the link?

That same blog mentions 19th Jan as a tentative date for invites and 22nd Jan for interviews to start. I do it think any additional information has been given out.

I have a doubt regarding the resume submission for ross... Ross specifically asks for job responsibilities and achievements in the resume but since most B-schools have a standard resume format in which you have to highlight your achievements, I used that same general format.Did we have to make another section under each company demonstrating the job responsibilities... Did I miss something horribly :(

In the same blog post as linked above (blog post from mid December) the question was asked at the bottom under the comments whether it was still the 19th. Ross admissions replied yesterday saying that yes it is still the 19th.
