Hi Everyone!

I am working on my application to the coop MBA program and was looking for a little clarification on some things. I have heard a few people mention on this forum that they applied to the coop program but were offered admission to full time instead. Is this because the coop program is already full? I recently graduated and have no work experience so if I were to apply to the coop program I don't see how I could be redirected to the full time since I have no work experience (besides summer jobs in my undergrad).

My GMAT score was 710 and my undergraduate GPA was about a 4.1 (on a 4.3 scale), so I think for me it will just come down to the interview, unless the program is full already, in which case I'm not sure what would happen.

I was also wondering how descriptive my response should be for the written aspect of my application. One of the questions asks me to list extracurriculars I have been involved in so should I simply list them in numerical form, or should I be writing descriptive paragraphs describing each experience and what I learned from them.

I was also wondering what the interview process is like for domestic applicants. I know there is the Kira online interview, but if this were to go well would I be invited for an in person interview, or a skype one, and if so how many interviews are there. I have seen mixed reports on this forum so it would be great to hear from someone who got in.

Thanks for your help, best of luck on applications!


No point of hesitation.
still have spots for international applicants cauz ppl rejected offers.
List the extra curriculum activities will be fine.
Interim between kira and Skype interview could be 1-3 weeks.
International applicants SHOULD have at least 1 yr WE and whether internship counts is case by case.

Got into the Co-Op program!

My Profile: GPA 3.83, GMAT 620, WE 2+ years (including internships), IELTS 8.5
Timeline: Application submitted around 22 Jan, KIRA interview request around 26 Jan, Did KIRA within 5 days, Interview 2nd week of Feb, Decision 1st week of March. They took 3 weeks after the interview to get back to me with a decision so if you don't hear back right away, don't be disheartened.

Good Luck!

Hi everyone! I submitted by application to the MBA Co-op program on March 2nd. I was wondering how long it usually takes to hear back about the Kira video interview. Thanks for the help :)

Usually a couple of weeks, but during this time of the year, it might take more.

Question for people who applied, do you have to submit official GMAT report and official transcript from your undergrad like how the application system listed or unofficial ones will suffice as per the email from admissions office?

How long does it take for them to update the application status? I have submitted my resume in my application form but the system still says initiated under resume.

Thanks

Yes, you will need to send the official GMAT score report via MBA.com directly to McMaster. In terms of the transcipt, McMaster still accept the unofficial soft-copy version on the system. Only after you are admitted then You must have the institution send them the official transcript in a sealed envelope

Am I the only one here who got the admission without skype interview? I thought it was only the Kira Talent round...
