mocchachino whoa! that's one situation to be in ! congrats!

Anyway, here are my 2 cents on this. If you want a better education, a change of workplace environment and are willing to struggle a bit to find a job - go to rotman! Excellent infrastructure, great curriculum, and a more diverse and international network. The downside is that its not easy to land jobs in canada irrespective of which school you graduate from.

India - well great career progress, great placements, 100% secured ROI, international faculty but very limited on diversity i.e hardly any international students!

Somebody whose studying in Canada said this and I quote " I'll rank Singapore, India, US, Australia and then Canada - in terms of job security. Given a chance, I won't come back to XYZ university and Canada. " It might be his opinion or a general opinion among students studying there - I give you no guarantee on that.

Well said...

I think personally u need to know where u see urself after completing the degree i.e. long term living in India or Canada. Also how much money / loan is a constrain for you as a student when attending school. IMO the decision is solely yours and I have known people study in US and UK and returning to India for work.

Got admission. Received email confirmation. Admission package being sent to my address. Know of anyone else admitted without having full time work experience like me?



Congratulations to all of you who received admission!
That was really fast.

May I ask what you received in the financial aid package -- approximately how much?

I submitted my application on the 3rd. Is she interviewing for R1?
If the adcom is interviewing Indian candidates in person, does it mean no more interview calls for India?

I think she is still reviewing and interviewing R1 candidates... Still got hope for R1.

When I asked her regarding my app, which was submitted on 11th, she said - she has a big stack from R1 to review and revert so my app will take a little time.

Hi All,

I submitted my application on Nov 1, received an interview invite on Nov 10, and was interviewed on Nov 17. It went pretty well, similar interview questions as mentioned by others on this thread. Career aspirations, why MBA, why Rotman, etc. I am now just waiting for a response. *crossing fingers*

Hi AlooChaat,

Were you interviewed face to face or via Skype ? Did a member of adcom interview you ? What did they say, when will they let you know ?

Hey Guys, I submitted my app on Nov 2 and Got interview on Nov 4. The reason being I am located in New York and adcom was visiting here. They gave me an option for in-person interview in 2 days or on skype later. So dont worry, there will be interviews on skype.

As per interview, standard questions about resume, achievement, team dynamics,how at ease in networking and what is successful mba to me. As it is said in email, take it as job interview and prepare behavioral round of it.

Hey guys,

As I was going thru the forum, I didn't find any case of an overseas applicant (other than India) being invited for skype interview, so i thought i would share mine

GMAT: 710
Exp: IT process consulting (3yrs by next september)

Applied on Nov 3rd
Received interview invitation on Nov 21st
Had the interview on Nov 24th
Expecting to hear back by next week at the latest (quote from the interviewer)

It seems to me once the interview invitation is sent, it's a rather quick process straight through to final decision. so for those of you getting anxious, I wouldn't worry so much.

As far as the interview itself goes, a very typical behavioral + MBA interview. Why Rotman, why now, what's your biggest accomplishment, tell us about a time you used your networking skills, so on and so forth. Nothing that hasn't come up in the forum. BTW, it was done in a really relaxed, casual setting.

As witih others, fingers crossed!

Hi gychoo,

Welcome to the Rotman Discussion. You see a lot of Indians here because there will be a lot of Indians in the class too. 1/3rd Canadians, 1/3rd Indians & 1/3rd the rest of the world!
Which part of the world are you from?

And you can expect the decisions to slow down a bit now, I think Rotman will like to sit on the interviews, analyze the applications that they have received and then start sending offers. Nevertheless, all the best to you!

So it was a rather quick turnaround for me!

Heard back from my interviewer today (so that's one day after the interview) - got admission with $20,000 scholarship.

Thank all of you who wished me luck, fingers crossed for you guys as well!
