Hello chinmay,
I think you should call chris and have a talk.But i guess you would prefer desautels over alberta any day.I got a mail from chris saying that my admission to alberta has been recommended to the faculty of graduate studies and i should be getting an official letter soon.


Hi Manoj,

Got a feedback from Chris today. Made sense.

Hello Chinmay,

There were some strong aspects to your application, along with some areas of concern. The biggest concern our admission committee had with your application was overall fit. The two areas you are interested in entering (Investment Banking and Asset Management) are very difficult areas to enter, especially for individuals that don't have Canadian experience in these areas. Alberta (Edmonton and Calgary) is not a hotbed for these types of positions. I don't know what other schools you are considering, but I would suggest targeting schools around Toronto if you are looking to study in Canada.

Thanks,
Chris Lynch

Hello Chinmay
That was nice of him to reply you back.Hardly many admission directors give you personal feedback.And yes,it does make sense.I think desautels is the one for you.

Guys just now got a mail from Alberta. My application was rejected. I still don't understand their requirement on video essays. I never got any link to complete video essays, my application showed status as completed and finally got dinged without submitting any video essay. If video essays were part of the application process, they would have asked me to atleast complete them before taking the final decision. Strange process.
All the best to others.


It looks to be sent only to those who cleared their initial review then eh? Had I read this a few minutes ago I would have saved 100 CAD. :P I have a feeling mine is going to be rejected too, as my area of interest is not something Alberta is good at. :)

Wow! That is good feedback. If only there is a way to get this before actually going through the pain of applying and paying up the 100 CAD. :)

Oh yeah, there is.. jeez I missed it. Anyways, good luck to me I guess.
Done with Alberta Manoj, awaiting the link to complete video essays (seems highly unlikely..).
Molson, not yet, have to complete it this week. Was confused about the recommendations, which the kind folks in the Molson thread have clarified.
