Just got done with my interview in Delhi, India. The usual questions - why MBA, Why Rotman, why you, why not you? etc. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Thanks for feedback AlexRus!


Congrats on the interview. So Sheldon & co are still in India? I thought they'd be back in Canada by now

Thanks echelon! Yup they are still here, and will be for another week I think, they are doing quite a few marketing events apart from the interviews. I think I saw Feb 16 as the date for one of em.
Good luck with you applications!

4 weeks since my interview!

I've got some really good offers in from other unis, do you guys think I should bother Sheldon and ask him for a decision or should I just accept one of the other offers?

Depends on where Rotman stands in your list, compared to the other univs. Let them know, and maybe they could answer on scholarship etc (in case thats your deciding factor). Good luck!

Hey guys.. I have just received an offer for admission from Rotman yesterday - without scholarship.. I have also received admission at Queen's with 10k scholarship.. I did my engineering from McMaster Univ and after working in toronto for a couple of years, I returned to India to work in the family business..

On comparing both universities, there is a difference of more than 20k in tuition fees. As far as I understand, Queen's is a fairly well known school but Rotman is doing better in recent rankings. In the long run I am not sure exactly what I will be doing.. But any suggestions on what may be a better choice?


My first reaction is: how much does $20k mean to you?

I would say choose the school that has the employers you're most interested in recruiting there. Can`t go wrong that way!

I had my interview on 15th and attended the mumbai event on 16th Feb. The interview more kind of an informal talk with usual questions regarding CV, why Rotman, why MBA etc.
There were about 10 people whom they did interview in three days when the adcom team was there in Mumbai.

Not at all, there's no time limit on the thank you mail. Just send it now (no need to mention the draft folder at all).

Just got a call from Niki (Director of Admissions) telling me I've been accepted to Rotman for 2013!

Just in case anyone wanted to know the timeline:

-Did my GMAT on Feb 12, 2013
-Feb 19th - Went to meet Lynda at Admissions for a pre-application review. We went over some of my info at that time, and I gave her my Unofficial Score Report at that time.
-Feb 21st - I called in to Lynda because there was some mix up about my application. We sorted it out and she asked me to come interview on the 26th.
-Feb 26th - The interview was very pleasant and she mostly asked questions I was expecting. Thanks to all who posted about their interview experiences! It really helped.
-March 2nd - Official Score Report was made available to me.
-March 4th - Notification from Rotman that my application was now considered complete (must have received the Official Score Report).
-March 5th - Called by Niki to inform me of my acceptance.

I'm very pleased with the acceptance and will be attending Rotman in the Fall. Looking forward to meeting with all of you there!

My profile - Male, 23 years old (24 in April), 3.3 GPA, 720 GMAT (49Q, 40V, 6 AWA, 6 IR), will have 2 years work experience by the time I start at Rotman. I currently work in Industrial/Commercial Real Estate Management.

PM me if you have any questions. I don't know how much I can help anyone, but I will definitely try.

Thanks again for everyone's contributions to this forum. I can honestly say it does actually help potential students. :D


Congratulations on the admit! The entire process seems to have been pretty quick, I'm jealous :-D Still waiting for word on my app, 8th is round the corner. With any luck, hope to see you guys at Rotman!

Hey guys. congrats on your admits.
I've send my documents at least a month ago, but I haven't heard anything from the school. not even reject or an interview invitation.
What's going on?Is that a bad omen? should i be worried or I should be relaxed?
How long does it take to consider the files and move on to next level!?
If anyone has heard from the school, and of course about funding, let us know. Thanks.
