ruisca,
Thanks and congrats.

Pheonix ID,
They had a deadline date as Nov 15. I guess a lotta applicants would have applied by then. May be ours fell back in queue and thats why we are yet to hear from them.
I called them and they were a good sport in putting me through to the adcom member who had my file way better than other schools that repeat the same "under revew and will get back to you"message. So do call.

The school is closed from 22nd (or 23rd) Nov to 2 Jan.

690/3.3/2 bachelors/3yr WE in marketing/F/Canada

Interview was casual. They asked:
- Why MBA? Why Rotman?
- Describe your current role
- Describe a time you had to make a difficult decision
- How should I introduce you to the rest of the admissions team

Ruisca,

Who interviewed you? what do you think they look for in an interview? Was it blind/conversational?

I ve been dinged/waitlisted to three colleges after interview, dont want it to happen for Rotman. So anyone/every one, need successful interview tips.

My interview was on campus with a lady named Lynda. She read my full application prior to the interview. The interview was very relaxed with discussion about my current role, some behavior questions, why Rotman and what makes me a unique candidate.

They already read your application and know that you are a "fit" on paper. So the interview is just to reinforce it and show that you act what you preached... Be sure about your career goals, how Rotman fits in and try to have your personality shine through. They also look for a class fit.... so being personable/cheery/friendly indicates that you will get a long with your classmates (who are going to be your teammates).


Thanks ruisca, will see how it goes. Have a happy holidays yall!

I have submitted my application on Nov 15th, 2011 and got a mail on Dec 5th saying that application is complete.

However, I haven't heard anything after that. As everybody has received interview calls and Jan 15th, 2011 is decision date , I think I already missed the bus for Rotman..... :(

is anybody else on the same boat?

congrats on the admit.

The best person to answer your question is you. Just be aware of all the factors before you decide, including the post MBA tax decdcution facility in Canada, prioritise them and then see whether what you are saving is worth it in the long run.

deadlycat: dont you think Rotman is stronger than Schulich in certain domains (finance, consulting etc). It would be great if you can explain further. Different prespectives always helps. Thanks!

I read in a forums that Rotman offers an admit within hours of interviewing. So you dont have to jump to conclusions. You can always call them up and ask - they are not fussy and very helpful (my personal experience). They let me know the exact status of my application.

How was your interview?


Interview is NOT blind. they somehow think it id judicious to stick to the basic set of questions. It is almost as if they are obligated to ask you "how should i introduce yourself to the adcom" as the final question.

As far as how it went, I should know about it with in this week.

Perhaps Rotman is slightly stronger in some area, though Schulich is probably stronger in others and in the end it comes out in a wash. This fact is reflected in their reputation ... basically the same. Considering Rotman is piggy backing on the reputation of U of T and has a tremendous location advantage over Schulich, it's more of a backhand compliment than anything. What's important to look at is the ROI of each school.

Rotman's tuition (international): $48,293
Schulich's tuition (international): $30,000

That's a 61% higher tuition rate. You will not be able to find anyone that can claim Rotman is 61% better than Schulich, not even the U of T admission team.

In fact according to the financial times data:
http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolra ... kings-2011

Rotman has a 87% increased in salary as compared to the 94% for Schulich.

Of course ROI is just one of the many indicator but when considering two comparable school, it become one of the more useful measuring stick. It is clear that Schulich is the better school here.

Yes no doubt ROI is an indicator, even if it not the prime indicator. Thanks for your views.
I am applying to Schulich as well. Just a few queries.

If you have been to colleges what is your take on the peer group of the colleges? Sculich admits quite a number of people without interviews. Also what college are you looking at?

It looks like the number of offers at Rotman for finance/consulting oppertunities is a way higher compared to Schulich. is it true? your take? So what would be your suggestion to a person who wants to pursue a career in fincial sevice/consulting post MBA?
