It seems that the GAME IS almost OVER for R2 applicants.
It seems that those who did not receive calls today neither was denied a week ago, will join the waitlist. Here you are -> calling-all-waitlisted-ross-applicants-intake-2015-class-of-190394-20.html
Some thoughts below.

First, some stats:
Last year Gmatclub admission rate (30%) was close to school's rate.
Last year Gmatclub applicants were 429, this year the pool is 522 or increase by almost 22%, which closely resembles the overall increase (by 30%) in Ross applications, which was reported by Soojin.
Last year the number of students admitted to R1 almost equaled those admitted in R2 (63 vs. 64). Almost the same is for this year 54 in R1 vs 49 in R2. Thus, I would assume that the game is almost over for R1 and R2. BUT!

The total number of students admitted in R1 and R2 last year equaled to 127, this year number is only 103.
Assuming that the share of applicants/admitted Gmatclub members is almost the same from year to year in overall application pool, I would
carefully assume that this year's waitlist is longer then that in prior year, i.e. for about 20-25 places for both R1 and R2 applicants.
Having a long list of waitlisted canidates would allow the school to increase its yield ratio. Would it negatively impact the quality of incomming class? I dont know. I think it mainly depends on the overall applicants pool.

Just inquired and got a mail from one of the admissions committee member. Bad news for Indian applicants who havent got a call yet, including me. They are done with the calls.

well I just phoned the admission office (@ 4.15PM EST) to ask if the calling process is over, and the answer is "no they are still making phone calls".

no further info was given, but I guess the chances are slim to none at this stage if you haven't received a call yet...

Did you call them up or email them with your inquiry? Did you ask specifically about yourself or they refused to give you a response to that?

I got an email at about 6pm EST indicating they couldn't call me and that I was admitted. In round 1, there was a guy who got in without a call. Wait until decisions are posted online to know 100%.

I have a sick feeling in my stomach. No call/admit despite a 760 GMAT (in the first go), 9.5 years of work ex over 3 continents and good extra curricular activities. I am completely baffled over what did I do wrong to not get an admit. :cry: :cry: :cry:

No I didn't. I was only interested in US schools. But thanks for the suggestion, I might apply to INSEAD and LBS this year.

I visited the Ross admission blog, and I don't understand the early denials. Could someone please explain it to me? If we weren't interviewed, and didn't receive a denial last week, does that mean we're waitlisted? Or could we be denied and not find out until tomorrow?
