Chances at Rotman - GMAT 670 [#permalink] New post 31 May 2013, 11:00
Hi all, I was wondering if you could assess my profile in relation to admission at Rotman, University of Toronto.

I am an economics graduate from Wilfrid Laurier in Waterloo. Unfortunately my overall undergraduate GPA is very low due to a lack of maturity and concern for the future. Thankfully I do meet their 3.0 minimum for last year of studies. I am concerned that the overall GPA though will still factor in. I also did not pass Calculus which I think will factor in heavily. I was thinking of retaking Calculus at U of T and submit my mark in the application - any thoughts?

After I graduated from Wilfrid Laurier in 2010, I took a post-graduate certificate at Conestoga College in computer programming, which I did do very well in (3.87 out of 4).

I've been working at a medium sized market research company as a programmer and am hoping to have two years of experience by the time I would start an MBA.

I scored a 670 on my GMAT (45Q and 37V).

Any feedback would be much appreciated!!

Might be a tough sell at Rotman, which stays pretty consistently at the top of the b-school list in Canada. You would definitely need to retake calculus and even then will be competing against other applicants with a better record. Couple that with just 2 years of WE and my guess is your application will get passed by for someone else who nudges you out in one or more categories. Your best bet would be to get another year or two of progression in your career, seeking leadership opportunities while you work to get that calculus conquered and possibly even have another go at the GMAT--note your score is good, but you need it to be better to have the most chance at Rotman.
