This is it. All of your late-night studying for the SAT or ACT and volunteer weekends are about to pay off in a big way. You're about to apply to Michigan Ross — one of the best B-schools in the country. Time to channel all of that hard work into a standout (and complete!) application.
We review applications from January through April, but we aren’t able to review your application until you have been admitted by U-M. The majority of first-year applicants are notified of their decision between February and mid-April.
To provide an idea of when you might hear from us (and to ease the suspense!), we’ll be sharing your decision on one of our four scheduled release dates, listed below. Decisions are shared in no particular order, so there’s no need to worry if you don’t hear from us on the first release date.
Ross admission decisions arrive by email after 5:00 p.m. Eastern time on select Fridays
The exact decision release dates will be posted in early January.
If you are offered admission as a first-year applicant, you have until May 1 to accept the offer.
Your application appears in Enrollment Connect. Please utilize Enrollment Connect to check your application status and view your decision.
