"Ross Week: Part II (R3/WL)"

In February's slush and snow I drove to A2,
Tis now just a MeMory of the distant past;
At Ross I gave My all during the interview,
And in the teaM exercises I had a blast.

In March I waited with hopes held high,
For days I kept my phone secure in My fist;
When the e-Mail came I gave a sad sigh,
Then stoically accepted a spot on the wait list.

In April I read about the great Rendezvous,
Honestly a jealously began to grow within;
Oh how I wish I could rightfully say "Go Blue!"
And be aMong the splendid ranks at Michigan.

In May My heart rate has once again began to fly,
As the calendar closes in on the end of Round 3;
I hope the Wolverines don’t hang Me out to dry,
I want to live in the ‘burbs of Detroit Rock City.

This coMing week I’ll watch My phone each day,
FroM the 734 I’ll accept an offer of adMission;
I’m More than ready to Move and pursue My MBA,
Please bring My Maize and Blue dreaMs to fruition!

Anyone know when they will be calling? Last two rounds they were explicit with when they were going to call. Today? Tomorrow?

Just received an email from Ross to create a UofM Friend Account to view my decision online... It says the decision will be available at 9:00 AM on May 15th.

I don't know whether this is a good sign (they want me to know as soon as possible), or bad sign (they don't want to call me and thus are just directing me to an automated response page).

Between Ross and the 3 other schools I'm waiting to hear back from, my mind is spinning.

Anyone else get an email like this? Or know if it's a good or bad sign?

It's very standard. Whether you get in or not - everyone needs access to Wolverine Access to view their decision. If you are not yet affiliated with U-M they send you an email to create a "friend account" to access the decision. Each round they have an official post date (May 15) but admissions calls come 1-3 days before that post date typically. Best of luck!

This has been true in previous Rounds and I would not be surprised if it were true in R3. On Soojin's blog she said that calls would go out *on* the 15th this time though...so don't put yourself through unnecessary agony today/tomorrow if your phone doesn't ring.

Good luck!

Where did it say that calls would go out on the 15th? I just saw that she said they would be making some calls "mid-May." My guess (just a guess) is that they will call R3/WL admits tomorrow, with a few more WL admits to trickle out later as the final numbers become set. Good luck everyone!

I thought that's what I read in April's blog post. I stand corrected. You are right and PPKoop hit it right on the head as well.

Ufff...like Spinal Tap...I suppose it is time to turn up the anxiety to "11".

:-D

Go Blue.
