Wrote to Pina and she has advised that I will be invited to the interview shortly. There is no chance of a scholarship if I get admitted now I guess as most of it would have been disbursed.

Not true. Last year I was admitted for the first time and received $40k scholarship (the highest I believe) in May, so there are still tons of scholarships available I would imagine. Don't lose hope.

I had the same query and hence wrote to an admissions committee member. They told me to apply anyway and I did. Now awaiting interview call. From Vijay's example, I don't think all seats for "Indians" are full. I doubt there is any such thing also. It you have a good profile and scores, give it a shot. Good luck.

You've got a good score, so please apply. If you're application is strong, being an'Indian' is in no way going to affect your chances. All the very best.

Got my interview in half an hour and have a quick question. Would it be a good idea to directly ask for a scholarship during the interview? Stating that I have an admit, but am inclined to join Desautels and would greatly appreciate any scholarship they give?

Hello all

Got in! :-D Was informed over a telephone call and was told that rest of the details would be emailed early next week (this week).

Timeline:
Confirmation of submission from Pina: 15th Jan
Email to set Skype interview: Feb 4th
Interview: 8th Feb with Antoinette. Was a very relaxed 30 minute chat with her and general questions about my career so far, key strengths, future aspirations, why McGill etc.
Admission decision: Call from Carine on Thursday evening informing that I am in and details to follow later.

Waiting for the formal communication now!

Congratulations Pasha, on the admit and the scholarship too. Where would you be heading to? Rotman or Desautels?

Thanks bro, I am inclined towards Rotman although it would be more expensive.

What would have you done if you were in my shoes ?

I really need suggestions bro

Tough spot that is, really. Depends on what you want to do post your MBA I guess.
I want to get into the gaming industry, and so would have chosen McGill. But if I were inclined to find a job as a consultant, or finance guy, or a position in some corporate, then I would have to choose Rotman. French is another thing to consider, but I guess you can always find work elsewhere (Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa.etc). McGill's fee is definitely lower than Rotman, but I guess for a brand like Rotman, you can try a bit and squeeze every ounce of finances you can find.
