Putting this out there because I've seen a lot of stats profiles recently: 95% of this bowl is just guessing. Focus on telling your story and well. Just do as well as you can & then go from there

Even if you don't plan of going to Ross (University of Michigan), I highly recommend watching some of their webinars on applying (see the MBA Prospective Student Guide) and listening to their MBA admissions director (Soojin). Her advice has helped me not get too stressed out about the whole process.

Also, talk to the admissions staff of schools you are applying to, they won't lie to you.
