Oh how I don't love LaGuardia airport. My flight landed 20 minutes
early, only to be stuck on the runway for almost an hour because there
were no gates open. But, got here safely and bumped into a Ross alum
on his way back to NY from a consulting project in Phoenix. It was
great catching up with him on work and life. I'm in NY today to
moderate a Forte Foundation admissions panel for women planning to go
to business school next year.
It's Friday. The first Friday in a month that we haven't had a team
exercise on campus. I think my team must be going through withdrawals
back in the office. We've loved meeting hundreds of applicants on
campus this round - nearly 50 percent more than last year, in fact!
Team exercise participants have told us a few things: (1) it's true
that you can't/don't need to prepare for this; (2) it was great to
meet fellow applicants (many have exchanged contact info so they can
stay in touch); and (3) it was a positive experience - positive enough
that many of them, including West Coasters, didn't seem phased by the
So where are we in the process? The Associate Directors have been out
of the office for most of the week doing final reviews of applications
and interview reports. They'll get me their recommendations by the end
of next week. I'll review their recommendations, then pass on mine to
the Senior Associate Dean. We'll start making admitted student calls in
the middle of the following week (for those who like exact dates - March 12 for domestic candidates and March 13 for international candidates). All Round 2 applicants will be able to access their decisions online on March 14. We'll be hosting admitted student events from March 16 - 30.
Thanks for engaging with us throughout these past months. We're almost
at the finish line!
