Rotman Vs. Schulich [#permalink] New post 04 Mar 2010, 23:44

BOOKMARKED
I've been very lucky and received admissions offers from both the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management and York University's Schulich School of Business in the last two days.

I was hoping you guys could shed light onto either school for the following questions:

1. What is the lifestyle around York/UofT like? I know UofT is right downtown, but does anyone know what kind of life outside of school people have?

2. What is the ROI for both schools like? Rotman is about 30k more than Schulich, but they have to be able to justify charging so much for people to keep coming back. I've heard Rotman has a great track record for placement etc., but does anyone know how the two compare? Is York as prestigious as Rotman?

3. The main thing I like about Rotman is their Brand Management majour option - is this recognized at all? I know UofT is usually loved for financial grads, but what about their brand management grads?

4. With York, what are the classes like in Niche areas like Arts & Media and Non-Profit?

My profile is 23, M, Canadian, White, Gay, BA Communications, Diploma in TV Producing, would like to pursue a career in brand management/marketing

Any scholarship offers?

You have 690 GMAT, you could have got in good US school as well.
Do the Canadian schools really compete with US schools?

Because in either case we will have to invest a lot.

Yeah, I tried for two US schools - Notre Dame (Mendoza) and HBS.

I got waitlisted and ND and haven't heard anything from HBS.

Since I'm a Canadian, I applied mostly for Canadian schools as I don't really want to move out of the country permanently right now. Plus, I only took the GMAT in December and I was a little late in getting my shit together for US schools besides the two I had in my mind.

I would've probably applied to MIT, Tepper, and UCLA.

I know very little about York so I can't really compare. Rotman is known for a design focus and excellent brand management. It is better known in the US. You might be interested in http://blog.accepted.com/acceptedcom_bl ... culum.html .

Best,
