Blaire Moody Rideout

Blaire Moody Rideout, PhD

Director of Undergraduate Admissions

My Role: I have full responsibility for the undergraduate admissions process at Michigan Ross, which includes leading the wonderful Ross Undergraduate Admissions Team! And while I direct the admissions process for all the three pathways to Ross, I do not make admission decisions by myself. We take a committee-based approach in reviewing your application. This approach ensures a holistic review with many reader perspectives to form a well-rounded and broadly diverse class. 

My Advice for Prospective Students: Be honest and true to yourself. And if so, YOU will guide where to apply to college and ultimately where to attend. 

What I Currently Listen To: My two boys and I love to listen to NPR's WOW in the World anytime of day. I mean who doesn't like Mindy and Guy Raz?!?

Greta Adornetto

Greta Adornetto

Assistant Director of Recruitment Initiatives

My Role: I love talking with students and their families! I get the pleasure of working with prospective high school students throughout the application process and manage our visit experience, including our Ross BBA Ambassadors. I also oversee the Business Minor application process for current U-M students. 

My Advice for Prospective Students: Be reflective and think about the activities, experiences, people, and events that have shaped you into who you are. Don't just compile these as a list of accomplishments, but think about the lessons learned and the growth you have experienced from these. This will help you create an authentic college application!

What I Currently Listen To: My favorite podcast is No Such Thing As A Fish.

C.J. Mathis

C.J. Mathis

Assistant Director of Transfer & Outreach Initiatives

My Role: I manage our diversity recruitment initiatives by building and maintaining relationships with prospective students and families from underrepresented populations and organizations that serve them. This includes managing our transfer admissions process, facilitating our fly-in programs, such as All-Access Weekend, and working with Michigan community colleges and other community-based organizations across the nation to develop strong pipelines of highly-motivated students.

My Advice for Prospective Students: Apply for private scholarships that will be accepted at any college or university that you choose to attend. This will help make finances less of an issue when making your college choice. I was able to fund my entire undergraduate education from mostly private scholarships!

What I Currently Listen To: The "I Love My '90's R&B" playlist on Spotify. I'm generally a fan of most R&B and neo-soul artists, but I stand firm on the fact that the 90's did it best.
