Had my interview on-campus yesterday with an mba2, very chill with no curveball questions. The team exercise was ok, I think they were just looking for red flags.

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


hi,
please just take it with a grain of salt. I would not wonder if a member of the Asian Business Club tells to perspective Asian applicants that Ross "is shifting its attention" from Latin America and Europe to Asia.

:-D a waitlisted European.

For those folks that have already had their on campus interviews, any advice for how to prepare? Does the interview have a big behavioral focus (i.e. "tell me about a time when...") or does it focus more on why MBA/why Michigan? Any tips or advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

It was kind of a mix bag for me. One or two questions about how I manage teams, how I've responded to failure, etc. And then of course there were the standard why an MBA/why Ross questions. I don't think it was heavily weighted in one direction or the other. They were really strict about time though (only 30 minutes-no leeway to go over that), so I would suggest being conscious of not rambling too much or over-answering any particular question.

Group exercise was actually pretty chill and informal. I think as long as you don't come off as incredibly socially awkward or overbearing, you're fine.

I'm coming! But I won't get in until 10 because of flight delays so I'm going to grab some shut eye. See you tomorrow, though!

On the contrary, it would be quite helpful to those who haven't been invited to interview yet. At least they'll have a clear decision and would be able to make necessary plans (with 2 weeks of advance notice).

I completely agree. Ross has been very forthcoming throughout this entire process, and this is yet another way they're setting themselves apart. Bravo.

Very well for my group. We had a lot of fun and worked well together (I think). We were all pretty proud at the end. Anyone else?

I agree that aspirants will have time to prepare applications for other schools, but with months of hardwork for GMAT and then applications, this dreaded mail nobody wants.

But Kudos to Ross, for decreasing the agonizing wait time.

What does Recommendation 1, 2 and 3 mean in the flow chart? Like 3 rounds of internal review?

I think it refers to letters of recommendation. As the application only asked for one, if you are waitlisted, you'll probably be asked to submit a 2nd recommendation, and potentially a third if waitlisted again. Counting down impatiently to March 13th!
