As a current MBA2 at Ross, and an interviewer (I literally just took a break writing up some interviews to check MGoBlog) I'd invite you to PM me to talk privately about any questions you may have.
As for the advice given in this thread, please take it all with a grain of salt and the sources in mind. Examples:
Don't apply ONLY to Ross. During the interview, I'm not supposed to ask you where you applied, and even if you volunteer that information I would think it weird/curious (even as a UM BSME undergrad) and question your reasoning behind ONLY Ross.
As for the guy that said not to do it? That's the opposite of my experience. Best decision I ever made. Two years of the most exciting, eye opening experiences with the best people in the world. Went from an engineering career that I hated(not too different from yourself), to starting a management consulting career that I'm loving.
Take my advice and go here:
Find people who's careers were like yours before school, as well as people who are entering fields you want to go into, and ask them all of these questions. I am actually on this list so you might even end up talking with me!
Best of luck to you my friend.

Can we stretch the Chatman pronunciation into a Batman rhyme so we can chant nananana nananana Chat-Man!!! ?
|1 year 22 weeks ago||great idea.||
I love the idea to plant a hot dog guy! Just hand a case of 50 to a random student and tell him to start gunning when he sees daylight! They should definitely do random things like that to encourage the students creativity, keep them having fun and doing weird stuff.

That song at that moment was perhaps the most upsetting thing that happened that day.
*** I forgot to add: for about 20 seconds the band was below us pounding the drums like an intense heart beat. It was the coolest way to build suspense I've ever seen, then it got drowned by that stupid song.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Awful||
That was the most awful noise I have ever heard. I almost smashed my computer trying to get to the mute button. I award you no points.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Tie!||
I'm going to go with a three way tie between my girlfriend, Gerald Ford, and the all-Michigan crew of Apollow 15.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||My five years of undergrad tickets disagree||
From 2005-2010 I NEVER had this issue. pregame til 1230, 15 minute walk over, in comfortably before kick. It was clockwork before and now its a clusterfuck.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||I can explain why||
At each gate: one person scanning tickets, three people behind her passing out little squares of paper with section numbers on them. Idiocy at its finest.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Blame the administration||
I was at the gates to the student section about ten to fifteen minutes before the flyover. It took a total of 45 MINUTES to get through the lines. It was absolutely outrageous considering we used to be in after roughly 5 minutes. It's possible that other games have had poor student attendance but any problem last weekend rests squarely with poor management by the administration.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Just watched a couple plays of practice||
I just went for a run over the E. Stadium Bridge and stopped to catch a couple minutes of plays...
Devin threw a pick, reeled in with a high jump by Jarrod Wilson
When Devin went out, Morris went in (So I'll say he's gonna be #2 in the fall) and threw a completion for about 10 yards + 10 YAC. Didn't catch the name of the receiver. Ben Braden was playing at LT for the couple plays I saw.
Too far from the field / busy to see anything else really.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||OMG I just burst out with laughter||
I don't know if I can award you all the internets, but I certainly award you all MY internets for the day.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Offer||
Great measurables, but going to have work hard for that offer. Michigan is really waiting and making the recruits earn them these days, but it will make the accomplishment that much sweeter. Congratulations.
|2 years 2 days ago||Student section||
I was for it, but for a season extremely angry because they arbitrarily decided to isolate some of us UM-Dearborn students during one year of the construction. I won't hold that against the construction itself however, which is beautiful and awesome.
The commenters above also reminded me of the first time I walked through the tunnel into the student section in '05. It was absolute awe, I can still feel the shivers sent down my spine.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Two Please?||
I'd love to get 2 as a treat for my girlfriend... We are UM grads, and she is currently in med school at WSU, so we both love UM hockey and don't get many chances to attend anymore...
Please email me?
