Hi everyone,

I'm a R2 applicant, and I didn't receive an interview invitation on Jan. 19, which is the date that Ross admission office sent out "all" interview invites. The strange thing is that, I just received an email 4 hours ago from rossinterview@umich.edu, telling me that I'm invited to an interview. It was weird because they announced that they have only "one wave" of sending out interview invitations.

Has anyone received the same email I did?


I just got an invite today too, which is very confusing. What's even stranger (and possibly not a coincidence), is that I am Taiwanese and I see that your location is Taiwan.

Well, I'm a Taiwanese too. I guess they just happened to left some Taiwanese invitations behind.
Anyway, congrat and hope we will both do well on the interview and get admitted, so we will have more Taiwanese in the Ross MBA Program. :-D
Also, I just registered the interview on-line, and there's not a lot of available slots remaining (for off-campus face-to-face interview), so you probably want to register asap.

I am an American in Taiwan and got my invite on the 19th like everyone else. Glad to see some other Taiwan applicants, I have my interview on Friday with an alum.

This is great. Congrats to you and everyone else who lost hope with Ross!

I really did wonder how could Ross manage to send out all interviews on 1/19 for such a big applicants pool, when the deadline was 1/5. More interviews definitely make sense.

I got this mailer which will answer your question

"This is a reminder that your interview appointment at the Ross School of Business is on ***.
All Skype interviews are listed in Eastern Time, so please be logged into Skype at the time listed above and we will video call you at that time.
We very much look forward to meeting you."

Can someone from Round 1 give some perspective on whether Ross released the interview invites in batches or were all of the invites released on one day?

it's supposed to be just 1 day. But there have been some consortium ppl that reported getting interviews after the R2 interview date.

Is it normal for schools to release interview invites a couple weeks after their initial decision deadline? I wonder if this is because they got a lower yield than expected from first round and are thinking that they need to consider more applicants to fill out their class for the year?

I still haven't heard anything from admission committee yet.
Is there still any hope for me or are they done sending out interview invitations?

I applied in round 2 and haven't received an interview invite neither have I been denied. Being an international student I was wondering if there is still some hope for an interview invite by round 3 ?

I received a confirmation on January 21st that my application is now ready for review. I sent all the details my Jan 15th.

Can anyone clarify, if "all" the interview invites were sent my Jan 19th, then why would they mail me so late?

I could be wrong but looks like you're applying for R3 instead of R2.

I would move on if I were you: intl student + R3 = really not much chance unless you're really very exceptionally special.

I just had my ross interview yesterday with a 2nd year student via Skype. I thought it might be helpful to others if I share my experience so here we go:
1. walk through your resume (I was cut off because apparently I was giving too much details)
2. significant accomplishments in your career
3. WHY questions
4. Short term/Long term goals (I didn't feel like I had enough time for this part)
5. how to motivate others when you're in a team
6. how to overcome difficulties when working in a team, there is no specification of "difficulties" so I used "resolving conflicts" as an example
7. question period

very traditional interview, very conservational and the interviewer was sharp yet approachable. I didn't feel like I did the best that I could but oh well. Maybe I really love Ross and really want to get in and therefore I was nervous for this one.

best luck to the rest of guys interviewing soon!

go blue!

I am not a R3 applicant.
Ross had given 10 working days time to send in the recommendations.
I sent in my recommendation on 15th Jan, and ROSS confirmed that it would be for R2.
