Hi All,

Everyone has very unusual Profile Name so difficult to identify who is who :P

Just wanted to check if there are any females also applying for this program or those who applied in round 1?
Looks like the female ratio is really low! I hear that even in the current batch there are only 5/27 girls.. Sigh!

Thanks

Sorry for being sloth in replying. I am pretty much sure you know what to prepare. Just brush-up your resume, why MSCM, short term goals, blah blah goes the list. Good luck !

Done with my interview with Eric, overshot the allocated time.. was a good chat!
Only one 1-1 interview for me, different than the rest, I believe.. most are having being interviewed by 2 people -> two 1-1 interviews or one 2-1 interview

Nonetheless, eagerly waiting till the D-day, 15th June!!
People who hear the results - do share with the rest on this forum please..

Good luck to all the R2 applicants :)

Got a call yesterday, got in.

Btw I am a R1 applicant but my interview got delayed due to some reason, hence a late result. Best of luck for R2 applicants for 15th June.

Hi Everyone

I had applied to ROSS MSCM 2017 in R1. I was waitlisted in Round 1 and am awaiting results in Round 2 to see if my waitlist gets cleared.

My Profile
7+ Years of experience in Operations Management in Steel Plant - Project Management , Production Planning , Improvement Project -BPR, Maintenance , Operations.
I have an MBA in Operations Management from XLRI Jamshedpur. I have had a relatively good experience in the supply chain domain.

Apart from from my GMAT Score I think my profile is suitable for this program.However GMAT score is
Total - 640
Quant - 49
Verbal -28

Do think it is the only reason I may get rejected? Is it too late to retake GMAT for 2017 batch?

Any suggestions/advice would be very helpful.

Had I been in your place I would have definitely gone for retaking the GMAT. You can very well rewrite GMAT before third round application deadline or result date. All the best !

This post was
BOOKMARKED
My profile:

GRE: 329(=170+159, AWA 5)
TOEFL: 108
3 and a half years experience in the Supply Chain Industry(Team Lead-Operations and Procurement, Consumer Electronics)
A Toastmaster(organize the biweekly meetings), a few publications(in a daily, Rolling Stone India, College magazine)(not sure if they count though lol), vice captain of the college cricket team, class representative for an year at college.

I applied in Round 2 and had my interview with Eric on May 20, 2016 and the second interview with Laura on May 25,2016.

Eric asked questions like what I wanted to do after the course.I said I wanted to work as a supply chain manager and he replied, "There is no such role in the US". I was stumped for a minute but then I explained how such posts are in abundance in India and even if I handled a part of supply chain, I think there would be a lot to learn. He asked me about my job responsibilities and about myself, examples of when I had worked in a team(I explained how I streamlined the reverse logistics part along with three people in my team). He then asked what else did I do besides work. I said I watch European cinema(When I said I loved French New Wave and German Expressionism Cinema the most, Eric started smiling as if we were partners in crime, lol), listen to indie music and read as much as I can(I said I had recently finished reading "Of Human Bondage" by W. Somerset Maugham.) The interview with Eric lasted 41 minutes. I realized there were a few instances when I kept on speaking at length and Eric had to stop me in between to ask a question. I am not sure whether it's good or bad. Eric also asked me why I wanted to go for MS in Supply Chain now. I think it went okay despite a few hiccups.

In the interview with Laura, she asked me if I had checked out the summer projects that the students had done at Ross. I said I had checked out a project in which a team of 4 people had went to Amazon and helped them reduce the costs that resulted from the loss of inventory that was being sent by the seller to Amazon's warehouses. She seemed impressed. Then she asked me what kind of a role did I want to go for after the course(I said I had two roles in my mind-i)Buyer and ii)Operations Manager(mentioned Amazon's Pathway Program)). She then asked me to describe an instance when I had resolved a conflict that arose in my organization. I described how during the appraisal of one of the employees in my team, the employee told that I didn't assign him challenging work. I told the employee then that I trusted in his capabilities and that I had a plan charted out for him starting from a supporting role to a leading role. In the coming months, I implemented the plan and today he was the team leader of the night shift. Laura liked how I ended describing this on a positive note. She also asked me if I was admitted to the course, what attributes would my classmates identify me with? I told the ability to provide incisive insight as well as constructive feedback(Described to her how Toastmasters has helped me hone the skill of evaluating by being encouraging to the speaker and at the same time educating the speaker). She smiled and said she had been a Toastmaster herself. She asked me if I had any questions. I asked her a couple of questions and she concluded the interview saying Eric would be communicating with me via email regarding the results.

I tried my best to describe the two interviews above. I don't expect much(Since I have only a little over 3 years of experience and the average experience of people admitted to this course is around 5 and a half years) but I gave my best. I guess that's what matters, however cliched it might sound. I liked giving the interviews in a long time.

French Wave, German Expressionism, Music of Kraftwerk, Joni Mitchell, The Who and many more, BRING IT ON!

Hello, Tania,

I am also a female applying for 2017 MSCM program in round 1. :)
Just got an email last week that I have a round 2 interview with professor Amitabh Sinhat. Really excited and nervous.

Did anyone get an interview with professor Amitabh Sinhat too?
Thanks!

Hey Ms Huang,


Congratulations..when is your interview?

I believe it should be "Sinha" not Sinhat.. but check that again..

Do you mind sharing your profile and your gmat score? :)
Are you a wait-listed candidate from R1?


Thanks
Tania

Hello, I applied in the round-2 for MSCM program and I am waiting for the results. I had 2 questions:
1. Does the admissions committee inform in all cases - even if an applicant is rejected? Will they send an e-mail?
2. Is it possible that a few candidates are placed in wait-list from round-2? How frequently the candidates have been accepted from the wait-list previously?

Waitlisted :( Pretty disappointing, given that I thought my interview went off well. Any ideas as to how long waitlisted candidates need to wait before hearing back? Also, kudos to all those who got accepted!

Congrats grayunderdog..

I applied to MSCM USC accepted and MSCM Smith (awaiting result).. and MSCM MISI (MIT Malaysia) has been chasing me even though I didn't apply with them.
But I feel all of these universities stand nowhere in comparison to Ross so I am highly disappointed.

Anyone can shed some light on the MSCM USC Marshall program? Thanks!
