We request all applicants to add McMaster's MBA program to your MBA timeline so that the applicant stats displayed in the first post reflect true picture of admissions. While adding the program, MAKE SURE you are setting it for graduation year i.e. 'Class of 2019'.

I took my GMAT exam on 10/26/16. Got 700 but my GPA is 2.0. I am not sure about my chances. I selected the school in my GMAT school selection. Do I need to do anything else or just wait for their response?

I can shed some info regarding this , recently only i completed the video interview.

I hope you received a email regarding video interview.

using that link register yourself and practice few times with practice questions.

Once you feel confident , wear formal shirts and take the interview.

There a 4 qs, 3 video and 1 written, combine all it will not take more than 15 minutes maximum 30 minutes if you have low speed internet

I strongly advice take it in a single shot.

Qs are frequently asked only so need to worry.

For written you have 5 minutes time to write your response so it will not be a problem.

All the best
