What was the most interesting question?

"Honestly, this is about as basic an interview as you're going to get. The interviewer literally had a prepared sheet of set questions that she just rattled off. No real curve balls here. The only questions that really couldn't be answered off your file and required a bit of thinking I listed in the "3 questions" section." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read school website and researched the island itself. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The depth of knowledge of the admissions staffer who conducted my interview. Her husband is a Ross grad, and she even lived with him on the island while he was going through school. She's been affiliated with Ross since...11 plus years. Not to mention, she was incredibly laid back, casual, and welcoming. Also, there really were no "sales tactics" either...although there was a push to get people who applied for the September class (like myself) to switch to May instead." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I don't think Ross gives itself enough credit, occaisionally referring to itself as a second chance school for some of it students. Now, that may be the case at times or the general public's perception, but why play into the stigma? It has a tendency to scare off someone like myself, who is still in the running at several U.S. schools and instead looking at Ross for the unique challenges and culture it offers. They should've pushed more the truly one-ofa-kind learning the can give you that you can't get in the states. Also, I don't like the fact they have a HUGE entering class of 300 plus in September. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Again, very basic here. I got there quite early, and sat out in the lobby. Since the candidate before me was watching a movie on the school, the interviewer sat out in the lobby with me and made casual conversation. This only made things that much easier and laid back. The candidate after also showed up during this time and we then went in and watched the movie together after the first candidate left. We then asked any questions we had after the movie, the other candidate was excused, and we jumped right into my personal interview. Just a very pleasant experience, from start to finish."
