The area south west of York is poor and probably the most ghetto in all of Toronto but keep in mind that it is all relative. Compared to any US city, the worst part of Toronto is still probably safer by far. That being said, there has been some high profile incidents at and around York so you might want to ask the administration about what's being done to increase the safety of the students there.

You probably don't want to hear what happened a couple of days ago then:

Police investigate York U shooting; no one hurt



ctvtoronto.ca

Date: Saturday Feb. 18, 2012 7:15 PM ET

Toronto police are looking for a suspect after someone fired a shotgun at a York University campus apartment Saturday morning.

Police say a shotgun was fired through the door of an apartment on the 10th floor of a student residence highrise on Assiniboine Road around 6:45 a.m.

A female student, believed to be in her 20s, was inside at the time but she wasn't hurt.

Elyssa Pomoa, another student who lives in the building, told CTV Toronto she was startled awake by a "very, very loud noise."

Police say the shooter deliberately targeted the student's door, but they don't know why. They don't believe the perpetrator knew who was inside the apartment.

Pomoa said the blast left her and other students on edge.

"Because we know so little of what happened, that's the scariest part."

Police are now reviewing security camera footage to see if the suspect was caught on tape.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police at 416-808-3100 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

Anonymous tips can also be sent online at www.222tips.com or on Toronto Police's Facebook page.

With a report from CTV Toronto's Scott Lightfoot

The area is fine, I dont know what everyone is complaining about. I would sugget living on campus as you will save a lot of time by not having to go though transit every morning.

I was at Schulich's event on Saturday. Hard sell and clearly they spent a lot on the event trying to woo prospective students (free alcohol at the reception for many hundred people!).

I was also talking to a lot of current students and I realised that Schulich interviews all international students. That doesn't absolve them from not interviewing domestic students, but it does address some concern.

Also, it seems Schulich is trying to brand itself very differently from Rotman and is aiming to be a very diversified program with lots of options (rather than being pigeon-holed). It is also emphasizing global reach a lot.

Still torn between them and Rotman. On one hand they are a lot cheaper and they offer much more in terms of electives and disciplines. But then again, things I found out (i.e. none of the big 3 consulting firms come to recruit at Schulich) are again worrying.

My thoughts exactly, and I'm in the same situation as you. I had a very good talk with one of the profs during lunch at the open house and she told me that Rotman is not well known outside Canada (she spent most of her academic live in the states). But seeing how strong Rotman is in the rankings might indicate that Rotman's reputation may overtake Schulich's at some point in the future... I'm torn too...

I would not give credence to anything that a Schulich prof tells you about their competition. Honestly, competition is fierce and they will do whatever, subtly or not so, to try and one up their competitors.

I have heard quite the other story that Rotman has a better name than Schulich, outside of Canada. My mother (with an MBA), who lives outside Canada, has heard of Rotman, but never of Schulich. So take from that what you may.

Decisions are tough, but do not let a member of either school sway you. Go for impartial and unbiased opinions and listen to your own heart.

LOL! Im glad you guys liked Schulich reception! Actually they throw these receptions all the time for networking, information, welcoming and other events. One thing I can tell you, you will be fed and drunk at Schulich lol.

Jokes aside though, I am a Schulich student so I am biased I guess. Rotman and Schulich is very evenly matched desite what ranking suggest. Three people that will get hired by the BCG and Monitor from Rotman does not count as recruiting. The hire 50-60 people each from schools like Booth alone. There are some differences between the two schools and in my opinion it comes down to do you see value in spending 20K-30K for a stamp that will say University of Toronto. Some people see value in that, I dont. As far as quality of students, trust me Im impressed by my classmates every day. As for global recognition... Schulich is building a campus in India... Obviously the brand recognition in Asia will rise because of that. Thats just my thoughts on the issue.

I was at the event too.
I'll pick Schulich over any MBA in Canad a for one reason only. Their specialization in Global Mining Management. I love that.
I applied and I'm in.
I applied to other school too. LBS and INSEAD. So I'm waiting to see what will happen and decide. But it's a great program.

Can anyone let me know the class size of the FT MBA program?
The first post mentions that 662 is the total class size. I feel this number might have considered various other FT MBA programs offered @ Schulich (such as the IMBA, Winter Intake).
I am curious to know the class size of the Fall FT MBA program.

I remember a number in the early-mid 400s from somewhere. Not sure where. I agree that the 650+ number is the combination of all their programs. I cannot seem to find it on their website though :?

Anybody know if Canadian applicants are notified of acceptance/rejection via email or if they just send it by post? I was interacting with an admissions assistant regarding them having received my official transcripts and she mentioned that they'd received them and that a decision letter was already in the mail (postal). I've asked for an email to confirm if I've been accepted or rejected because I'm travelling and really can't wait to know what the outcome is...

They normally send the decision by both email and postal mail(canada post).

I got my admission offer initially by email and then got the package by postal mail, a couple of days later.

Weird, they asked me to go in for an interview, I thought they waive that requirement for Canadians.

@deadlycat Going by your GMAT score it seems wiered that they asked for an interview. I was under the impression that they dont go for interviews for candidates having Gmat score > 700. I too was spared of the interview.
May be because now number of seats left are not many.. and they too have enough time for taking interviews :)
Best of Luck.
