Per my opinion you're underprepared for the application. Your grades and experience is.only one part of.the application. You do realise that it takes around a month's time for the release of your official score, which would then be forwarded to Rotman.

Per my opinion, it would be wise to hold off this year and apply next year rather than apply this year (considering the high risk of rejection from submitting a hurried application)

Every profile has a "weak" point , what matters more is how "strong" is your story and displaying your thought process on why you think a Rotman MBA would be the right fit for you.

Plus you are also taking the student visa process for granted. Trust me, there have been quite a few instances this year where a student visa was denied.

OMG bhavyamehrortra do not waste your time on this. Agree 100% with poster below. Also R4 is suicide for ORMs. Even R3 is too late really; Indians should focus on Early Acceptance schools/rounds. If you are hell bent on doing this sooner than later look at Ivey where they start in March; maybe European schools with Jan batch but still, this test taking business might not be exactly add water and stir. For many it becomes a black hole. EARLY IN CYCLE is my message for you. Fall is probably best unless Ivey/European schools and CBS J-term if 1) you get a stellar GMAT way above the class average and 2.) you don't need an internship.

There is a long shot for later rounds at Warwick & Imperial for Sept batch. See here https://mbaessaycoaching.com/2019/04/03/what-now-options-for-bummed-out-round-2-applicants/

Hello bhavyamehrortra,

We agree with each of the responses provided to you by the Experts.

Frankly, Rotman has been extremely competitive this year and with you being so late in the day (in every sense of the term), you have practically no chance at cracking it.

It makes a lot more sense for you to apply to Rotman next year when you are better prepared.

All the best!
