Hello mscmross

Thank you so much for your response.

Actually I have already received an email from Ad Com, offering a spot on waitlist and informing that Ad Com has requested a second round of interview with me.
So I was hoping to get some information on what it would be like.

Wish you great holidays.

Hi Rang

Congratulations on being admitted to the program! You mentioned earlier that you hadn't heard back from the school, I wanted to check whether you had an interview. If yes, how soon after submitting your application did you hear back?

Hi there,

Thank you so much for creating this forum and providing us a great chance to communicate with current students!

I have been working as a staff accountant/financial analyst for 2 years in a shipping company in the US after earned my first Master's degree in Accounting with 3.88 GPA. I gain a strong interest in supply chain management because my current tasks, especially budget preparation, require me frequent collaborate with our operations team. I am super excited when I came across this program and fascinated by how practical this program is.

I've contacted with Katy and several current students, but I still have several questions after I submitted my application.
1. Do you have any ideas about the application timeline? I have already submitted my application by Oct.15 which meet the first round deadline. I completed my application by Nov.4 after submitting supplemental documents that required by the application office. I didn't hear back from UMICH since then. I think my GMAT score and my work experiences are definitely not my strengths, so I probably will be waitlisted or rejected (Hope not!!!!!!). Do you have any insights about if anyone has already been admitted or get interviews?

2. Will the waitlisted applicants get interviews?

3. Can I update my GMAT score after my application?

Thank you so much for your help:) It's really a great tradition to keep helping new applicants!

Best,
Rang

Hi there,

I submitted my application on Oct.15. I've been contacted by Admission Office to provide one more material and completed my application by Nov.4. I received my interview invitation on Nov.30 and scheduled my interview with Cheryl on Dec.7. I received the phone call from Cheryl to confirm I was admitted on Dec.15 as promise. This is the entire timeline of my application. Hope this info can help you and good luck on your application!

Hello all,
Are all the interview invites out for round 2?

I applied in round 2 - submitted my application on 8th Dec and received a confirmation that my application is complete. There is no communication post that.

Hello mscmross,

Are there interviews held for all applicants? Also, do you know if they have started sending out interview calls for round 2 applicants?

Thanks

When are the interviews for Round 2 applicants expected to happen? I am little anxious now, as one month has passed since the Round 2 deadline.

Hi, I am sorry about my earlier post. Had misinterpreted an admissions chat invite for an interview invite. Was just too excited and the scheduling of the admissions chat, which was similar to an interview chat didn't help. (Well, I figured it out a day before the interview/chat :) )

Anyways, I had the admissions chat with Katy (admissions adviser) and it was a really informative discussion. She also mentioned that they give admits without interview too at times. Once again, sorry for the earlier post.

Hello everyone,

We are another group of current MSCM students. We have received a lot of emails and messages on LinkedIn in the last few months and would like to post feedback on all general questions. We will try to be as honest and clear as possible. We didn’t have anyone to help/guide us as this was basically the first year for the new program but we will try our best to help you guys.

1) Yes, the program is now 10 months as opposed to 12 months before. There is no full time Summer Internship.

2) Consulting Studio is like a Project you do with a company, not at their facility but rather from the school, by organising meetings and sharing information over WebEx. It can’t really be compared to Summer Internship but it’s the best we have right now.

3) We don’t really know if people will get full time jobs from Consulting Studio, as this is the first time this has been launched and the Studio has just begun in Winter. But from our personal prespective, we don’t expect the number to be more than 2-3, if any.

4) There are still opportunities for practical hands on experiences like AT Kearney Projects, Independent Studies & Consulting Studios but it’s no where near as good as before. AT Kearney Projects happen in Fall during peak recruitment cycle & thus, most of the people don’t take it.

5) The academics are pretty good. Some classes might not seem very value adding but in general, we don’t have much complain from academics.

6) We don’t really know what new rules or impact Trump organisation can have. What we will like to clarify though is that STEM doesn’t help you get a job, no employer even looks at STEM. How it does help is that once you’ve a job, you can apply for H1B for 3 years.

7) The job scenario right now is pretty shit & to be honest, only 5 people have jobs right now out of 44. The Ross brand is big but on its own, it’s only helpful, if you’re doing an MBA. With the MSCM degree, it doesn’t help much. Amazon is the only company who recruits on campus for MSCM. Off-campus can be very daunting, not impossible if you keep your focus and keep on trying. Most of the companies, even the big ones, are not very keen to hire or sponsor Internationals right now.

8) For International Students- We don’t recommend you to apply or not apply, that is purely one’s own choice but we do recommend to do your due diligence thoroughly. Managing the academics with assignments and cases and networking vigorously for off-campus jobs can be daunting. It’s still a good program but yes, not the same it was a couple of years ago. It’s very much possible that the implementation of this new program structure is done much better for your batch as the school will have some experience with our batch but again, we can’t be sure of that.

On a personal level, we suggest that if you do apply, do also look for similar programs from other schools like MIT or look at the IOE program in University of Michigan. If you’ve made your decision to come to US, irrespective of the school, we would also suggest to prepare yourself for a tough, exciting, challenging and a stressful year. It is not easy for everyone to manage all this, especially when you’re here on a big loan. So, all the best for your applications and let us know if you have any more questions.

Hi Guys
Has anyone else been invited for an interview? Is it safe to assume that you will not be accepted if you aren't invited to interview?

Hi RT17,

I have gotten an interview request too.

And no, don’t assume that you will not be accepted without an interview. As stated earlier, the admissions committee mentioned that some students are admitted without an interview.

Thanks

Hey guys,
sorry for the little lull there. We got busy with the classes and the projects of the consulting studio.

I will be picking up from where we left last time. Since all your questions are on the round 2 invites, I have bucketed them into following -

1) Interview process

Ideally, everyone who gets into the program receives an interview invite from the school to schedule an appointment. And, typically, there is one round of interview on a pre-agreed upon date and time. Once the interview is done, you can expect to hear back in 2 - 4 weeks. But, as msapp was pointing out about the folks admitted without an interview, I would say that that is an exception and not the norm in general. But, if you haven't received your interview call yet, please drop a note to the school at rossmscm@umich.edu to check. No harm trying!! :-)

2) Preparation for the interview

As pointed out in the earlier posts, be prepared to answer questions on your current position in the career journey, your target in the long run and how Ross MSCM helps you achieve that. Be honest with your story and you will do fine.

3) deadlines for receiving the admission letter

You will receive the admit letter before the deadline mentioned on the MSCM page. So, for the second round candidates, you should hear back from the school by February 8. And this is applicable for both admitted and waitlisted candidates. All admitted students have a deadline to accept the offer and based on their acceptance/non-acceptance the folks in the queue will move up the order. So, don't lose your hopes yet if you are waitlisted, there is still a good chance.

I completely understand the anxiety( we were there in the same position just a year ago!!). So, keep up the effort and just relax, you guys will do great!!

Let me know if you have any more questions and will try my best to answer them ASAP. Good luck!!

Go Blue!!

When did you received the interview invite and when is your interview?
Do you mind sharing your profile?
