Current Rotman 1yr student here. I can help you guys with any doubts

Hi

Do you know what are the second years are all doing? As far as I know the second year is less intense than the second year. Do you know anyone doing school year internship in the second year?

@MangoYu, there are few that are doing school year internship. I know one who is working for a tech company. Generally 2nd yrs are busy during this part of the year because of job search/interview preps. I have heard that, 2nd yr Jan term has relatively less workload and some of them start work (internship turned into fulltime) as early as feb.

Hi Anandin, it's really nice of you to take the time to help fellow applicants.

I have a question, I am interested in breaking into management consulting, and I hope you could kindly offer some insights.
1. What are the major consulting companies that recruit on campus? From what you've seen, what's the success rate like for people pursuing consulting?
2. Do rotman mbas have to compete with mbas from the US for consulting positions? Can we apply for locations in the states?
3. I have never done any high profile jobs (like VC, IB and alike), just risk analyst. But I do have a GMAT of 750 and GPA of 3.7. From people you know in the program who want to pursue consulting, do I stand a chance?
4. I am already the mother of two children, and I know consulting is not necessarily the most family friendly career, but I love to problem solve in a corporate setting. So I am researching for the least evil of all consulting jobs, do you know which consulting firm involves less travel?
5. If you know some second year students who did a consulting internship, can you please give me some contacts through PM?

Thanks a million!

Hi lindalibinbin,
This is my honest opinion on what i have learnt so far but i think a 2 yr guy who is currently preping for job search will be the best option.

1. What are the major consulting companies that recruit on campus? From what you've seen, what's the success rate like for people pursuing consulting?
McKinsey,BCG, ATK, Deloitte, PWC, Ernst and Young. For the nest question I am not sure how to quantify the success rate. My belief is that every person has their own definition of what success means
2. Do rotman mbas have to compete with mbas from the US for consulting positions? Can we apply for locations in the states?
I am not really sure about this but most likely we dont compete with US but rather compete with other schools in Canada. Top MC companies in canada actually operate as "North Americas" rather than focusing only in Canada(as canada is a small market). If you are one of top MC guy, i would expect that you travel atleast 4/10 travels to US
3. I have never done any high profile jobs (like VC, IB and alike), just risk analyst. But I do have a GMAT of 750 and GPA of 3.7. From people you know in the program who want to pursue consulting, do I stand a chance?
your GMAT matters for the TOP MCs but UG GPA doesnt matter. All it matters for them is your MBA GPA. So i would say if you are doing great in MBA with 3.7+ you have a fair chance to be selected for interviewing
4. I am already the mother of two children, and I know consulting is not necessarily the most family friendly career, but I love to problem solve in a corporate setting. So I am researching for the least evil of all consulting jobs, do you know which consulting firm involves less travel?
Yes there is a job like that and that is Internal Strategy position in any big corporates. For ex Rogers, CapitalOne, RBC etc have few internal strategy positions every year. These jobs allow you to maintain a healthy work life balance and NO TRAVEL. One of those who did internal strategy summer internship mentioned playing foosball during lunch

5. If you know some second year students who did a consulting internship, can you please give me some contacts through PM?
best is to reach out to admissions team as they can give you the right contact you are looking for. mail them , they would definitely reply but it takes sometime as they are doing admission info sessions

In for R1, submitted app on 11/4.

Do you need your official undergrad transcript from your college for application? I am told to get it from my college directly to Ad com office.

Yes, that's correct. You will have to send a copy of your sealed official transcript to the MBA Admissions Office. Even I missed it. Apparently your application won't be considered complete unless you send an officially sealed transcript.

Hi,

Quick question. For those who submitted their applications, did your Official GMAT score show up as "received" in the supplemental documents section before you submitted? Or did it show up sometime after?

I wrote mine back in September and had my score sent to the Two-Year Full-time MBA (I think this is what it was called when I selected it during the test) but it has yet to show up as received in the supplemental documents section even though I submitted my application by Nov 4.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Does anyone has an idea about H1B to F1 visa conversion? Can an H1B holder apply for F1 visa? I am working on H1B and I have to leave my employer for MBA, so I would need F1.

I heard that H1B holder are not eligible for F1.
