Moved by the holiday spirit, Soojin Kwon, MBA admissions director at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business, tapped into her inner poet for her latest blog post announcing the Round 1 admitted student calls she and her team completed Thursday. All decisions are now posted online.
The Michigan Ross MBA admissions officers plan to issue Round 2 interview invitations on January 19th, with interviews taking place from January 22 to February 23, 2015. Kwon also notes team exercises will happen on campus during that period every Friday and Monday, and a few Saturdays, beginning on January 30th.
For those who cannot make it to campus in Ann Arbor, the Ross School will hold team exercises in Sao Paulo and Delhi on February 7th; Seoul on February 8th; and Shanghai on February 10, 2015.
For applicants planning on submitting in Round 2, the admissions director had some advice to share. The winter break is an ideal time to set up a Café Chat with a current Ross student near you, and Kwon says students are eager to share their experiences with prospective candidates.
Also, she recommends applicants review the admissions webinar from earlier this week, which, in addition to talking about the program, included last-minute application tips and answers to burning questions.
Finally, Kwon urges applicants to make time for doing things they enjoy with the people they care about in the coming weeks. “This will give you better perspective to review your app in early January (before the January 5 deadline) and see if it really reflects who you are and what’s important to you,” she says.
