that numbers make a lot of sense, but since there is a 30% surge in applicants this year, I guess either they cut down the interview invites or eliminate more applicants in the interview stage.

I hope they can still keep up with the ~70% admit rate post interview

I did some math, and assuming the applications rose 33% and yield rates/number of seats stayed the same, Ross is looking at a decline of 51% to 39% of students receiving an interview invite, and a decline in acceptance rate from 35% to 27%. These numbers seem very realistic.

Here's a look at my slapped together Excel analysis where I backed out chances by starting with number of seats available:

thanks for the little chart, really hoping Ross is interviewing less applicants (% wise) instead of eliminating more during interviews. Personally I think this is logical to do, I don't think Ross has enough manpower to handle a 30% surge in interview all of a sudden.
From their blogs I think they were kind of shocked by that increase as well....

R1 applicant - was WL without interview in R1. Got an interview invite today.

Would probably be attending the team exercise at Delhi.

Could someone confirm the date of the team exercise. (It is sure to be held on 7th?)
Will the interview be taken there itself or should we schedule it now?
And no off-campus interviews for Indian?

All the best to everyone

Anyone from India, who's scheduled the interview and agreed for the team activity on 7th Feb? If yes, could you please post some details like what are the timings on 7th and where is it in Delhi?

I plan to schedule my interview after a few days but want to book tickets for the event ASAP.

Also, only Skype option for India candidates?

Same query !!

Post registration for the team exercise you will receive an email which says that the details of the venue etc would be intimated one week prior to the team exercise. Also it appears that the dates have been changed...it is now scheduled on 08 Feb ( as per the email received by me- understandable since Delhi votes on 07 feb). There is an option to interview in person with an alumni in Delhi but I haven't received confirmation for the same. You can try and book a slot but from what I see now most of them are already taken up. Has anyone in India received confirmation from an alumni for the in-person interview?

Quick question - how does one register for the team activity? Also can I schedule the interview and activity for the same day?

I can't find New Delhi in the drop down for selecting my city for 'off campus, in person' interview. Are the slots already full?

Did get an interview slot for the 10th. My confirmation mail for the group interview does not mention any date. Did you explicitly contact them and ask? And no, i havent received a confirmation for my alumni..

I'm considering doing that date. But the cost of a flight plus hotel is sort of making me hesitate a bit.

740 GMAT, 5.5 years of Tech Consulting. Wrote really good essays. No invite. I think the increase in applications may have hurt. They usually favor Indians a lot, so was sure of at least an invite. Three dings now, brutal and bitter pill.

Hoping for better luck in other 5 applications. Else it is a wrap for this year.

Looks like it is the GMAT factor for Indians this time. Dont see any Indian with a GMAT score of less than 750 getting an interview invite.

Man, I wouldn't even classify myself as Indian. I am as Canadian as it gets (born and raised). So brutal.

Thankfully its just a drive across the border for me but yeah flight and stuff adds up - if its a top pick I think it's worth going in person, especially if you haven't been before.

If it wasn't for the team exercise, I would just interview locally. But since it's used in the evaluation of your application, should you participate, I feel like I'd be putting myself at a disadvantage if I didn't do it.

I find it odd that they don't have a program where students volunteer to host applicants for these weekends. Unless I missed something, it just seems to be hotel discounts that they offer.

Friends of mine in Phd programs have done that when visiting schools. I'm not sure about b-school programs in general. Though, it just seems like a natural thing to do for a place where students seem to love it so much. Maybe if I get it, I can start one...

"Your Team Exericise interview is scheduled for 2/7/2015 in India: Delhi, India"

So it is still 7th.

Do PM me your number, I will add you to the Whatsapp group for Indian shortlists.

When I log in , I am getting the message as "Your Team Exericise interview is scheduled for 2/7/2015 in India: Delhi, India".
if you go the admission director's blog, I actually posted the message about Delhi Election. So I am not sure if it is changed.

I guess the slots are all full.

Surprising, I was lucky to request for 9th Feb Afternoon. I guess it is only one slot. I cannot see the slots for India ; Delhi at all.

One more thing, do PM me your numbers, sss27 has created a whatsapp group and we can interact on that group.

I will be coming from Bangalore to delhi for the Team exercise on 7th and Interview on 9th. We can network.

So apparently from my consultant, they are having some issue with their system and some people who were supposed to get interviews did not and it is throwing off the whole system... I guess I won't keep my hopes up but thought I would share.
