Hi everyone!

I got an offer for the Co-op program and thought I should share some insight on my application process.

Application submitted: November 30th
Video interview completed: December 5th
Co-op interview: January 6th
Received offer: January 20th

I did horribly on the video interview because I was really nervous and ended up not answering the questions well. Make sure you get enough practice talking into a camera as I think that would really help!

My in person Co-op interview was a very positive experience. The questions I received for the Co-op interview were very similar to the ones 'applicant19' has provided and the interviewers were extremely friendly and courteous.

My applicant details:

GMAT: 650
WE: 2.5 Years in Financial Services
CGPA: 3.35
Domestic Applicant

Hope this helps!



Hey thank you very much for sharing your experience rapsfan1992! I have just completed my Co-op interview and feel like I could have done much better. Hopefully hear some good news in 10 business days. :)



Congrats on you Admission. There is a whatsapp group for Degroote MBA students you might be interested in joining. At least we can know ourselves before September. 8-) 8-)

Hi everyone,

I am also a domestic applicant currently completing my fourth year of undergrad. I accepted my offer to the co-op program, and received admission in February.

Like rapsfan1992, my video interview was not the best. I experienced technological difficulties during the interview, so I felt flustered. Prepare yourself for the possibility of glitches and make sure to complete the practice questions to familiarize yourself with the software.

For the in-person interview, I prepared through researching behaviour-based questions and there were no real surprises in the questions I was asked. The interviewers were warm and I felt confident leaving the interview. I received my offer 9 days after.

Looking forward to September!

Hi everyone,

I just received my offer from DeGroote. I had applied for the co-op program, but have been offered admission into the FT program instead. My concern is that at 80k, the cost of the FT program is too high. The mandatory co-op work terms would have helped me pay for my tuition, but with the FT program, I feel the risk is significantly higher since it would all hinge on the kind of job offers I'd receive at the end of it.

Is my thinking justified? Can some of the current students shed some light on the "reputation" of the DeGroote FT program in Canada? I've been reading about how the university gives more preference to its co-op stream students since that's what its known for. How true is this? Would you recommend that I email them back requesting them to consider me for the co-op program citing financial reasons?

I'm really confused. I need help to decide whether I should take this offer up or not. Any insights are much appreciated.


Hey,

Your thinking is justified! I am a current student and I accepted the offer only because of the Co-op program. It gives valuable Canadian work ex for those seeking and is a great way to pay the tuition. The DeGroote program is gaining reputation steadily but its more so the co-op program. Let alone the University; Employers also see value in students being part of the co-op program. I can confirm this now that my first work term has ended. I rejected the McGill to get the co-op program at DeGroote.

Are you wait listed? Based on your GMAT score of 720 I would think you could get into the co-op program.
Let me know if you have any further questions.

Rohit

Hi everyone!

Just wondering how long after the video interview you all received an invitation to the in-person interview for the co-op program.
Getting a little bit nervous as the deadline approaches as I'm hoping there are still spots available for the September intake. Any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Abdullah

I completed my video interview on Sunday night and received an email on Thursday. The Adcom meets every Wednesday but it all depends on the number of candidates at hand.

Cheers:)

Hello all,

I also got admitted to Degroote FT MBA. I come from Delhi, India with over 3 years of experience, and a GMAT score of 710. I tried 3 other schools (McGill, Sauder and Alberta) and could only get into McMaster, which I had to accept due to lack of options.

Please add me to the whatsapp group. My number is 91-8587836811. Look forward to meeting you all in August.

Would you mind sharing your profile? :) I'm also a domestic applicant and just graduated from my undergrad last Spring, hoping to attend next September! I'm trying to get a feel for what my chances are for admissions.

Hi guys. Is there a thread out there for the applicants of the September 2018 intake? Been scouring GMAT club but I'm unable to track it down. It would be super helpful if somebody could let me know of the same.
