Ideal Candidates Admitted to Ross
For some, its easy to say why they are applying to Ross, for others less so. But, more importantly, what does Ross want in its applicants? Ross BBA is extremely competitive, so forming the right presentation of identity through your application materials is essential and one of the primary ways to convince Ross Admissions that you are deserving of one of the few coveted spots available for applicants. So, conveying your congruence with Ross ideals is essential, but what are the Ross ideals? These are defined and at times undefined values and principals as reflected by their publications and literation that we help our clients in interpreting with clarity. Some of the Ross ideals that they reference seeking in an ideal candidate include:

  • Clearly defined future business and career goals
  • Clearly defined references to Ross academic/other experiences that you would leverage in support of your career goals
  • Clearly defined references to career interests within extracurricular activities
  • Within or exceeding averages of ACT/SAT (34, 1480), GPA (3.9), and extracurriculars (3+ highly involved)
  • Congruence with UM and Ross cultural and community values

Frequent Mistakes
Whatever your reasons or goals are for applying to Ross BBA, we can help. All of these items must be clearly described in your application materials. They also must be carefully and thoughtfully shared, harmonizing but never redundant across your common app, University of Michigan, and Ross BBA application materials. This is often where most students have problems or complications. First, a clear business goal must be present throughout your materials, and it also must be clear why you need Ross BBA to achieve those goals, and what exactly the Ross BBA will contribute (similarly, what you will contribute back to the UM, Ross, and occupation of choice community). Failing to clearly reference a specific career goal, how you need Ross to get there, and tying in themes to your involvement are essential for a successful application.

Another common mistake is applicants who are redundant in application materials. An applicant has several essays shares with Ross: common app, UM, Ross specific – an ideal candidate will reference themes and have some messaging crossover to achieve a sense of harmonious composition, but never will they be redundant in content. This is a fine line to tightrope for even the most skilled essay writers.
