Hi. Sent in my update on the date of the deadline :P talked about the added responsibilities I have taken on at work, a part time course I just completed and people from Michigan Ross who I have spoken to learn more about the school and its culture. What about you?

So silent here.
Have you guys updates adcoms on your profile?
If yes, what you did? What info have you provided?

I did not update because I have nothing special to tell them.
I dont want to discourage you or anyone else, but my view is that adding few work responsibilities and names of some alumni would not add much weight. Even if you visit the school from lets say China or Africa (i.e. far from Ross) thats also would not help (my own experince).
Their instructions are pretty clear - inform us of job change or higher GMAT. It means "gives us numbers, which may influence our MBA rankings".
Do added reponsilibilites and names represent numbers? not really.

Did anyone on this thread get the dreaded "early denial" email from Ross this past week?

Refer to Soojin's blog, but they are releasing denials early so people can better prepare for R3 at other schools.

Otherwise, it's another 13 days until we might get good news? :)

I have not received! I want and expect to receive only good news. :-D
From Soojin's blog, I understood that they are releasing denials early for R2 applicants.

given the fact that the number of applicants significantly increased this year and there were some changes to current admissions policy I am fraid we can not do any reasonable assumptions and conclusions out of existing GC statistics.
Of course I do not have internal data.

Hi, guys. Got waitlisted, very disappointing. But when I analyzed application workflow, I realized one (potentially) critical weakness in my application. I have to somehow address this weakness to raise my chances. Does anyone tried to reach adcom over email or using official form? In discussions from previous years it is clearly stated that if you had something worthwhile to say to adcom (promotions, achievements, etc.) you could contact them without any problem. But in this year they specifically noted that one should use only web form and no more than once per round. And I can't find any information whether they provide feedback for waitlisted applicants. So, the situation is like you have only one shot and you have to use it wisely; hit or miss. What do you think guys?

I think they are a bit tired of non-quantifiable, i.e. qualitative updates (see my post above). Therefore, adcoms clearly mentioned that you have only one chance to give us hard nu,bers, either a job change or higher GMAT score. - there are pretty clear insructions on that.
Soojin suggested that her next blog post will be adressed to waitlisted candidates. So let's wait and see.

You're right, and this is the only thing that stops me from rushing into the issue. Nonetheless, all updates must be submitted by April 10, so I have a doubt that one can considerable improve GMAT or obtain CEO position within a month. On the other hand, there should be exact reason for waitlisting an applicant and only adcom member knows it, you just have to ask somehow. It is pretty obvious, but I just want to discuss right approach and wording. Time is against us.

Any thoughts? Does anyone ask adcom and receive meaningful feedback?

Hello guys,

Hope all is well. Congrats to all who got in. I joined the round 2 waitlist. I'm in the process of putting together the essay. My profile:

25, Male, Indian origin, first generation immigrant. US military experience (Navy).
3.6 GPA in finance and economics. Senior financial analyst at fortune 100. Current MS- Statistics student at CUNY- Baruch. Current grad GPA: 3.4
GRE Quant- 163 (86th percentile)
GRE Verbal- 155 (67th percentile)

I'm a visual learner, and for this reason, Ross is my foremost choice to attend due to hands on training in MAP and an opportunity to get involved in various student led venture funds.I really would appreciate any input from you guys regarding how can I make my follow up essay stand out.

Sincerely,
Devang Bhatt
