I just got the e-mail as well. What does it mean?! Was it sent to everyone or only those who a decision has been made already (which would be a deny since it didn't make it to the final round of reviews next week)?

Did anyone from R1 receive an email the week before decisions saying that your application status will be available online in a week?

So nervous.

Looked at posts from last round and it seems like decisions for everyone were posted ~10 days before the decision date.


Would not read into this too much.



It's just funny to me that even someone like me who has not even interviewed has to create a UMich account to view the decision. I would think that's only for those are accepted or at the least interviewed.

Anyone else in the same boat as me?

Everyone -

Stop freaking out, calm down, and have a wonderful weekend! No need to panic until the 13th (or afterwards for that matter).

email talking about how to access the decision next week - and a link to sign up for an account with a ross id number (provided). It basically says that is how you will find you decision.

Guys, again please calm down and... love Ross :)
If you are serious about Ross and admissions process you must be following Soojin's blog. If you dont for any particular reason here you are: https://michiganross.umich.edu/admissio ... sions-week
She was pretty clear about admissions decisions. If you were not interviewed neither received ding this or past week, chances are you will get a waitlist offer.

If you are waitlisted, please strictly follow the waitlist instructions to avoid unnecessary moves (adcoms really hate spamming them about how much you are committed to Ross).

Please follow the "Calling all Ross waitlisted candidates" thread for more useful info, discussions and opinions calling-all-waitlisted-ross-applicants-intake-2015-class-of-190394.html

4 Tips for Team Interviews  [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 08 Mar 2015, 11:32

Since so much of b-school life and learning includes team discussions, the adcom needed a tool for assessing how applicants will fit in the team-based discussion culture of their programs. Thus, the Team-Based Discussion (TBD) was born.

In team-based interviews, applicants need to use a different set of skills than they use during traditional, individual interviews. Personal interviews require one-on-one presentation, interpersonal skills, and self-awareness, while team interviews require critical thinking, listening, persuasion, and leadership.

Here are four to-do’s to help you win an Academy Award for your performance in an interview:
1. Review school material. This includes the specific materials that the school provides prior to the interview, as well as all other material about the program. As with an individual interview, you need to know the school well – its mission, curriculum, teaching style, etc. Review the school’s website and speak with current students and recent grads so you get a clear picture of what it’s like to be a student at B-School X.

2. Read Case in Point. This is an excellent book by Marc Consentino that will teach you how to state your position during team-based interviews, and then clearly and succinctly support your position.

3. Role-play. Use family, friends, colleagues, and consultants at Accepted.com to role-play with you. The more in-the-know your mock interviewer and peers are, the better idea you’ll get of how the interview will run on the big day.

4. Take notes. You are allowed to bring notes to the interview, and while you don’t want to read off a piece of paper or even refer to it frequently, it may help you feel more confident knowing that some of your key points are written down in case you need them. You never know how performance anxiety may set in, and if your brain freezes and you completely forget your plan, you’ll be glad you jotted some ideas down beforehand.

TIP: Don’t bring a 400-page stack of papers! You don’t want to spend the whole time shuffling through your notes, making noise and ignoring your co-interviewees while they speak. Paperless notes on a tablet may reduce the shuffle, but they won’t reduce the distraction – keep paperless notes to a minimum as well.

How to Ace Your Team Based Interview [4 Tips for the Big Day]  [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 08 Mar 2015, 11:32
Image
Last week we shared our tips for preparing for Team Based Interviews. Today we’re going to move forward and offer 4 tips for acing the interview itself:
1. Don’t be confrontational. This is not a debate in which you’re trying to score points. It’s not Crossfire. It’s not a verbal battle. It’s a simulation of what you may encounter in a b-school classroom or group project, and so it’s that vibe and model that you’ll want to emulate. Interviewees should build on one another’s points, contributing to the conversation; they shouldn’t cut each other down with rude or judgmental remarks. Of course you’re allowed to disagree, and you should be persuasive and enthusiastic about your positions, but do so with respect and grace.

2. Think quality, not quantity. Participants are judged on the quality – and not the quantity – of their comments. You should add to the conversation, but certainly not dominate it. Refrain from speaking for the sake of being heard. Thoughtful and succinct comments are appreciated; chatter is not.

Don’t let this tip backfire on you! Qualitative comments are a must, so don’t hold back from speaking because you’re worried that your contributions won’t hit the mark. You need to find a balance – don’t blab on incessantly, but don’t be too shy to open your mouth either. You’re there to contribute; make sure you do!

3. Keep it real. While many of the topics or prompts given may lead you to a world of theoretical thought, you need to work to push through the theory to arrive at concrete points that are supported with evidence from your own firsthand experiences. Business schools are interested in students who have paid attention to their life stories and who are able to draw deep understanding and practical results from them.

4. Keep notes to a minimum. Just as a treatise of pre-interview notes will distract you from the interview action (as we mentioned in last week’s article), so will scribbling notes furiously during the interview. You definitely want to have a pen and clipboard or a tablet available if you need to quickly jot something down, but remember – this is a group discussion and you want to keep the flow of the conversation natural. Taking notes and then reading your monologue will certainly disrupt that flow.

Good luck!

Michigan Ross to Release Early Deny Decisions  [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 08 Mar 2015, 11:32
The University of Michigan Ross School of Business continues to streamline and improve the transparency of MBA admissions by piloting a new process that will release unsuccessful applicants from Rounds 1 and 2 before the official Round 2 notification date on March 13th to give them more time to make other plans for the fall.

Admissions Director Soojin Kwon posted this diagram on her blog to help illustrate the change:

“This is not to say that all applicants who weren’t invited to interview will be denied early,” Kwon clarifies. “If you weren’t invited to interview and you don’t receive an early release notification, you will be notified on the regular notification date.”

The admissions committee plans to send out the early deny notifications by the end of this week (February 27).
