Hi,

Kindly evaluate my profile and let me know what % chance I have of getting a call (or perhaps an admit) from Rotman.

Profile Snapshot:
GMAT score: 680 (Q49, V33) (in 2012)
Ethinicity: Indian
Gender: Male
Work Exp. : 61 months (till Aug'14)
Current Designation: Senior Business Analyst
Employers: Infosys, Edifecs Technologies, United Health Group
Highest Qualification: Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science
Target stream post MBA: IT consultant / Stratigic consultant

Please note, I had already had admit from Rotterdam University, Netherlands and McGill University, Canada for Class 2015 but couldn't accept them for financial and personal reasons. I would also like to know the following:
1) criteria based on which Rotman acts as gurantor for the candidates
2) what is average scholarship which Rotman provides to Asian candidates

Hi WannabeTitan,

Apologies for the late response. I'm not sure if I would be the right person to do a profile evaluation as admission depends on a lot of criteria such as your story, essays, interview and your interest-to name a few. I can get you connected with an admission director who would be happy to answer your questions. Does that work for you? I'm sorry that I'm not much useful in this case.

Regarding your other queries:

1) criteria based on which Rotman acts as gurantor for the candidates << Rotman doesn't act as guarantor for the students but few banks offer half-tuition loan without a co-signer.
2) what is average scholarship which Rotman provides to Asian candidates << As far as I know, the range of scholarship among South Asians is from 10K-50K. There are lots of stipend/Financial aid/Waiver in Rotman, such as Entrance scholarship (based on your profile), Rotman challenge contest (Full/Partial scholarship) etc. You can find more about those in the following link. http://www.rotman.utoronto.ca/Degrees/M ... tance.aspx

Thanks

Hi Kingme,

Thanks for reverting.

I would be glad to have a discussion with an Admission Director.

I do understand that, as aforementioned by you, there are various criteria other than score which accounts for an interview call from a college. My intention was to check whether my score along with my work experiece, apart from my essays, puts me in a decent enough position to expect a call back from the college. Please note, certain colleges embark on high GMAT score, so it's better to check beforehand :)

Hi WannabeTitan,

One simple rule that I used was to have ticks and crosses for each profile criteria. For example, if you are above the average GMAT score for a school then a tick and if not, a cross- because if you have a lower than average GMAT score for their school then the adcoms are going to hurt their ranking by taking you and unless you have a great career or story to tell, the adcoms are not going to take that risk. The same tick/cross rule applies for other factors such as career progression, brand name of the companies you've worked for, extra curricular etc.

So if you have tick marks for all the criteria for a school then you have a very good chance of getting in otherwise you'll have to work hard on the factors that are in your control to convert them from simple ticks to awesome "Yes"!

I hope this helps.

Thanks
