Anyone here in Ross undergrad?

I'm going to umich this fall, and I plan to apply to the new three year program at Ross towards the end of my freshman year. I was wondering if anyone here is in Ross and could offer some advice as to what they look for in their applicants. They give some information on their website but it is quite vague, and I couldn't get a good idea of what is most and least important to them. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I am NOT in Ross yet but plan to apply at the end of freshman year also. What I do know is that they're basically looking for a high first-year GPA and good grades in the prerequisite courses: calculus, economics, accounting, writing/composition. (I don't know the exact course names, but those are basically it.) It might be good to have some EC's, but I would think GPA is most important.

    You're right, GPA is probably most important, considering there isn't much of a record to judge you on after one year of school. They did mention that the essays are very important too as they give you a chance to talk about yourself. What I was more concerned about was anything additional that they would look for. For example, would it be a good idea to join the college-equivilent of FBLA (I was the president of my school's)? How many EC's do you think they're going to be looking for?
