Hey Vijay, first of all, thank you for volunteering to help out. Really appreciate it.

I just wanted to know if you had any concerns regarding the school's location in the French speaking region of the country. Would it, in your opinion, affect your career prospects in any way? (I'm asking from the point of view of a person who does not speak the language.)

Also, could you comment on the kind of career opportunities in and around Montreal? How do they compare to those of say, Toronto and Vancouver?

Hey localwisecrack, I think this article from a current year 2 student, a friend of mine, should help you understand a bit. Let me know if it doesn't clear things and I will add further details for you. :)

Bottomline, marketing/finance jobs in Montreal without French is a bit hard to land on. However, Toronto is close and open. :)

As your undergrad is in English, you would not need TOEFL/IELTS for an admission, but might need that for VISA.

I was invited for an interview just a few days after submitting (I had previously done an informational interview, spoke with some students and uploaded some documents ahead of time)...that seems insanely fast though. I'll take it as a good sign? Interview advice? :P

All the best for your interview. I could be late in responding, if so, sorry about that.
Interview Advice:
1. Smile.
2. Prepare the standard questions : Why MBA, Why McGill, etc.
3. Keep examples ready to support answers for behavioral questions - Could you tell us a time when you..
4. Dress smart.
5. Smile.

Best Regards,
Vijay G

I took GRE instead of GMAT. In the application, in the Test Score section there is only GMAT option. How do I update that? It shows status as pending. My checklist remains incomplete thus. My GRE score were already reported on 6th January. I already tried communicating through their communication box, in the application but no reply.

I'm not sure if the communication box is the most effective way. If I were you, I would write to Admissions Director Antoinette Molino and seek her advice. All the best with your admissions.

Anyone here looking to fund their MBA through Prodigy Finance? McGill is listed in the general list that Prodigy is supporting but there is no mention of the university in the loan application. Does anyone have more information on that..?

I have an existing loan from Prodigy, and as far as I've heard, they're run into some troubles with the Quebec government and hence are not able to work with McGill anymore. But unfortunately I do not have an official communication on this and hence cannot confirm it 100%.

Thankyou so much for the response Vijay. This is really discouraging though as I have to make the decision in less than two weeks and Im not sure if theres any other trustworthy source of funding. Are you studying at McGill? As an after-thought, would you say that getting loan that covers half of tuition and living expenses is worth it for McGill MBA, considering all the factors of Quebec location but the ease of immigration laws for Canada in general and the general job prospects for international students?

Quickly write to Prodigy at their email id and they should be able to give you a straight answer - info@prodigyfinance.com. I'm at McGill yes. Half of tuition and living, I wouldn't about it, as it's worth the brand. Read this, as this should give you a fair idea. It's by a friend of mine, a year 2 student: http://gmatclub.com/reviews/comments/de ... -345352395
Happy to help is there are more questions.

Hi !

I started with my application process for MBA program. But was stuck payment options since the fee is showing different than what is mentioned on the website.
Have dropped several mails because I want to ensure if my program selection is correct.
In addition the deadline in the program selection and the one mentioned on the website do not match further confusing me.
Pls help me out so that I can process my application.

Thanks.
