Why did you pick Ross? I picked Ross because of its highly collaborative community and culture of inclusion. As a person who is passionate about diversity, equity, and inclusion, it was important to join a community that not only has a strong track record for developing socially responsible and collaborative leaders, but also values the same principles as I with regard to diversity. Ross has the highest number of Consortium members and alumni out of all 18 Consortium Schools and continues to put diversity at the forefront of its mission. Additionally, each interaction I had with Rossers, from admissions to students and alumni, has been effortless. It was easy to see how the culture of collaboration permeates at each level of the community.
Since I recently joined the Ross community, you can ask me about my transition from the East Coast to the Midwest; MTrek; and my recruiting process, which culminated in my earning 2 full tuition scholarships (1 from Ross, 1 from Darden) and approx. 77% funding from Fuqua.
