Today's wave of invites does indicate that these people had stronger profiles than those to be invited in the next wave. No ?

Got the invite too!

Congrats to the other invitees! Nervous to start prepping for interviews, but I think this is a great starting point

For everyone else - keep your hopes up. As per Soojin:
"Remember that when you are invited to interview has no correlation with your likelihood of admission."

Got an interview! Mine came at 4:55... I had already stopped refreshing my inbox long before that.

Does everyone get a Super Saturday invite? I'm looking to find out more about it

Good luck to everyone!!

I just saw an Indian invited for interview in BTG forum.....so its now or Nov 12

Bummer.. No point of being awake till 3

I share the feeling.....counted every moment go by.....9:00 EST, 12:00 EST,3:00 EST...finally 5:00 EST....but nothing

No invite for me either. This is depressing. I'm an Indian applicant too, but one of the admissions blog clearly states that the location of the applicant or when the application was submitted has no effect on the timing of the interview invite.

It is already 8.30 pm at Michigan. I'm not too optimistic that they will be sending out invites after office hours

Yes, I agree. I do think it's randomized as to whether you get an invite now or in November. I think they just don't have time to look at every application immediately. You may be their ideal candidate - they just haven't looked at your application yet. Don't give up hope!

I hope there's some truth to them not inviting in the first wave because they didn't have the time to look at it yet vs seeking out the most competitive stats first, and then going for the lesser guys.

Hey,

Does anyone think (has it happened in the past) that the interview invites for Oct 23rd might trickle down a bit today or maybe tomorrow or is Nov the only date to look forward to?

I do hope so too, but someone mentioned an affinity (or a lack thereof) for internationals/Indians?. I saw on another website that 2 Indians did confirm they were invited, but the both had a 750 score. Also some metrics on applicants (all nationalities) this year generated an avg GMAT of 705 (in line with the Ross avg.) , while the avg GMAT for those invited yesterday was 722, a whole 20-odd points off the avg. Note that there there were a few high 600s in there, but who's to say they weren't promising candidates in other aspects. Disturbing stats? Ross could just be showing affection for those who they feel might be lured elsewhere (say in that narrow window until next batch of invites went out?) based on their stats, while abiding by the commitment that they would not necessarily consider these higher priority over the next batch when it came down to admitting? I would like to give Ross the benefit of the doubt.

Your basing your premise on 7 data points on a self reported GMAT forum to determine that it was 20 points off the average. That is nowhere even remotely close to representative of the entire population. They say it doesn't matter when you are invited, and they send out a lot of interview invites in both rounds. What is the purpose of getting worked up about this stuff and guessing? I know two candidates who interviewed in the second wave last year. Both got accepted, and one got a full ride.

I'm speculating based on the data I had access to: 11 data points to be precise. No one's getting worked up. Just sharing information. That said, I do hope people don't fret over what I shared. It's data, and whatever it may or may not point to, its not in anyone's control outside of adcom; I'd give them the benefit of the doubt.

Peace.

11 people reported interviews, 7 of them reported GMAT's. And the avg GMAT Club member's GMAT was 719 that is applying to Ross. My point was not to be harsh (and I apologize if it came off that way), but that data definitely is not indicative of a higher quality pool in the 1st wave of interviews.
