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.


Sorry I thought you meant you submitted your apps on the 15th.
Well then I dunno, all invites were sent on the 19th of Jan but as you can see above there are still a couple invites received on the 31st of Jan as well.

Just contacted Ross adcom regarding international invites they said" At this time, all interview invitations have been sent. We have not received further information that additional invites will be sent for Round 2. Good luck in the admissions process"

I guess this means 'ding' for those who have not received invite yet..disapponted..:(..!

Quick question about interview best practices. Do you bring (and submit) an updated resume to the interview or should we stick to the original resume we submitted with the application?

I don't think there is anything wrong with bringing an updated resume. This could actually be a launching point for a conversation with the interviewer.

That's very disappointing! I even retook GMAT and got a 760! But it seems to be of little help. So sad right now.

Hi,

I am a Master of Management applicant at Michigan-Ross. I applied on Jan 31 (Round 2 deadline was Feb 2). The process for MM admissions is similar to that of MBA.

Now I got a mail from them today saying that my application is complete and that I will get a decision by the decision notification date.(Although R2 admissions are on rolling basis)

Now, I want to know if everyone here received such a mail before getting the interview invites? If yes, how long after such a mail, did the interview invites were given out?

Any insight on this would be much appreciated. :)

This email is mere a confirmation of completeness of your application after review by admission office's staff. We all got similar emails.
The interview invites were sent out 2 weeks from the deadline, but am not sure about timeline of MM program.

Hey guys! Last monday I did my interview with an alumni in Frankfurt. More formal than UNC Kenan Flagler but still very satisfied.

What I want to let you know is that the night before a current MBA2 student contacted me (profile similar to me, european, international background, career switcher...) and offered himself to talk on Skype and share experiences. Is this some kind of second interview? Someone else has had this experience?

Thank you guys

I think that they see you as a prospect candidate :)
I guess that relatively, Europeans are under-represented there as international students so they want to increase the odds of you joining them.
Plus, if you said you're into finance that's one more plus. I heard that they're looking for candidates who want to go to IB this year.

oh I was taking it as a bad sign, that maybe just with one interview wasn't enough. Thanks for your words then :D

Btw how do you know that Ross is looking for more IB? (if you can share that info of course)

I did the on-campus intervew/team exercise on Feb 6th and flew in a day earlier to hang out with some current students/experience the school culture. In speaking with current students, they especially mentioned that Ross has made a concerted effort to bump up it's finance reputation. Due to a couple good years of recruiting, the big banks are coming back and increasing the number of offers they are giving to Ross students. One first year who had signed an internship offer with JPMorgan said they took 6 IB interns this year, having never taken more than 3. If you're into finance, Ross is becoming a hot spot!

I know a student there that works in the admission office :)
It's true, not only did they show good results in the finance field, it's also a field that graduates earn a lot of benjamins :)
They want it in order to increase further their ranking.

Hello, You said you know a student working in the admission office..Do you have any updates on whether there will be more interview invites to be sent to the second round applicants??

In the briefing from adcom they mentioned that applications are up 30% yoy already between first two rounds and due to higher than expected yield in first round, there were less interview slots open for this round. Who knows if this was actually true or just a marketing type statement to make interviewers value Ross more highly but I believe round 2 invites are done.

Thanks for reply man..In that case, I am really disappointed because I was counting on Ross. Also, unfortunately there are no updates on my application portal. So this wait is really killing me!!:(

Thanks for that info. Would be good to know if this is going to translate to (a) the same number of R2 invites but more waitlists, or (b) less R2 invites by same number of accepts/waitlists. In other words, is the higher-than-expected yield from R1 going to keep interview % constant (as in (a)), or bring down interview % (as in (b))?

R1 Deposit deadline isn't until April/May, so they probably won't have a great idea of the yield while going through R2 applications.

Thanks. So it sounds like, in fact, the higher-than-expected yield that someone saw at Ross is a case of having 100 matriculating students vs. 80 -- significant shift, but not enough to move the needle.

just had an Skype with a current European MBA2, member of the European Business Club

One of the topics that we have discussed, is that Ross is shifting its attention from Latin America and Asia towards Europe. In the following years we should see an increase of Michigan's presence in the region, and as a result a higher rate of european students

I wonder how they decide on the international students percentage and on how many will be accepted from each country...
