'Waitlisted' at Ross!

Finally, i heard something from the school to which i submitted my first application

Today 01/15 was the decision date for Ross and somewhere deep down i knew that i would be waitlisted. I knew for sure that i would not be dinged directly. I always believed in the quality of application i submitted. Although i also knew that the quality of application i submitted for Ross was considerably different from what i submitted for Stern. This was mainly because Stern was my last application and thus i had more time to work on this one and by the time i started writing Stern application, i was already experienced in writing apps :)

Now i know how long this waiting game can be.

I know i can convert this to 'admit'. I will need to put a strategy in place for this.And i really need some guidance from all you guys out there. The moment, i saw my waitlist decision, I knew i can rely on all the people from this blogosphere in order to convert this to 'admit'.

Any help and suggestions are really appreciated.

Congrats on Ross waitlist - its better than ding.

I got waitlisted @ Cornell and the school is offering feedback on strengthening my app. Do you know if Ross offers such feedback to waitlisted candidates?

Did you visit Ross before interviewing?

Achilles said...


hey Ross is not offering that kind of a feedback. Though there are some general set of guidelines.

So you mind sharing inputs from your Cornel feedback?

no, i didn't visit Ross anytime...will it help now?

Also, most probably i will be given a promotion by my company in March, so i am really waiting for that to come as it will greatly boost my chances...

Achilles said...


Thanks opps for the wishes!! you are always there to help and i will certainly ask for you when i need some insights...i hope you will share your insights

Achilles said...


thanks for the link..it seems to be useful...

First of all congratulations. I wish you convert this into an admit. I too have been WL at Ross, that too without any interview (I am not a reapplicant).

Yepsee said...

I am withdrawing from the waitlist. Have made a decision to attend Tuck. Yes, I am on pagalguy too. :-)

All the best with your waitlist at Ross and hope you get in at all the schools.

hey Achilles,

Could you finally convert it to an Admit?
I am a waitlisted candidate for R-2, 2010 and any insights from you would be extremely helpful.

I tend not to comment, but I read a few of the comments here
"'Waitlisted' at Ross!". I actually do have 2 questions for you if you
do not mind. Is it just me or does it seem like some of these responses
come across like they are coming from brain dead individuals?
:-P And, if you are posting at other online social sites,
I'd like to keep up with you. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your social networking pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

The bait is free moving and the fish can carry out its tests on the bait without the
hook interfering and spooking it. This step also involves threading the braid’s tag end
through the eye of the hook. First, place the silk necktie around your neck and keep the wide side of the tie at least one foot below the
narrow one.

Any yards that have fruit trees are a big attraction to flies so be sure to pick off any over
ripe fruit. Increased EFAs and reduced trans, hydrogenated, rancid and oxidized
fats in the diet may help to reduce drusen formation, or perhaps permit long term reduction
in accummulated deposits since EFAs loosen the structure of fat soluble cell membranes, while cholesterol,
for example increases rigidity. He was very surprised to find that his cholesterol didn't drop.

I see a lot of guys ask how to put on weight but at the same time are missing the
most obvious step - they aren't eating enough. Eating out, especially fast food, frequently can do harm to your health. Those who think obesity is due to their genetic makeup relish any news that 'fat genes' have been found as they look to blame something else for their predicament rather than their own habits and behavior.
