The interview should last about 20~30 min. Just prepare for standard MBA interview questions (Why MBA, Why McGill, questions about your work experience and extracurricular, etc.) and you should be fine. The most important thing is to present your best self while being 100% authentic. You'd be surprised how easily MBA interviewers can tell if your stories are true or BS.

I was rejected without an interview. I had submitted my applications towards the end of the third round.
From the last year's forum we can see that they ask only general questions ( Why MBA, WHy now, goal specific queries, examples of team building and leadership) and nothing out of the blue.

Hey everyone, I have been looking at the Essay Q.s for Desautels and am wondering how different the answers for Q. 2 and 3 are meant to be. Generally, one would treat Q.3 as your standard 'Why MBA? Why now? Why this program?' question, but then Q.2 appears to be similar in nature (albeit more specific). Further, the use of "As concisely as possible" in Q.3 also trips me up, since I get the feeling that one should integrate a lot of the generic MBA essay in Q.2 and then leave only additional bits for Q.3.

Yes I know that's me rambling, but its all somewhat confusing. Don't judge me too much! Any advice from experts?

Come on... Is low score going to affect your application? The answer is an obvious big YES. Your exam score, undergrad GPA, and work experience all count. If you are weak in one of these areas, you better be quite impressive in the other two.

Hi Stanislas StanDumont, do you mind share your profile? Also, would you like to share the dates when you submitted your application, received the interview invite and the interview date itself (although I know that this one is today)?

And of course, if you can share some details about how your interview went that would be great!

Of course !

Application submission : 30/10 (with missing documents)
All documents submitted : 16/11
Email for interview : 23/11
Interview : 27/11
Response whether accepted or not : 05/12

The questions asked were the following (order might not be right and I might have forgotten one) :

    What is a leader for you ? What does one need to be a leader ?
    Strengths and weaknesses ?
    Where would you like to work (plan A, plan B, long term ideal job)
    What is important to you outside of your working life?
    What could you bring that is special to McGill MBA class ?
    What would be your biggest challenge during your MBA ?
    Tell me about your professional experience so far, what are your responsibilities, anyone working for you ?
    Any volunteering you have done ?
    Any question you have for me ?

The interview lasted for 55 minutes and was a lot closer to a discussion than to a formal job interview, we have laughed a lot!

I wish you all the best luck for your preparation and coming interview !

Stanislas.

Edit 28/11/2017 : Would you have any advice / tips regarding scholarships applications ?
Edit 05/12/2017 : Admission date added

Finally the offer with 40K scholarship. Now the hard part of choosing between the schools. I have an offer from Rotman as well with almost nothing scholarship, though I kinda am leaning towards Rotman mostly because of its location. Anyone here has any idea how the job market is for non French speaking person. I am planning to major in Strategy and come from Technology Research background.... at this points any thoughts would be appreciated as need to decide on the same within next 2 days.

Great news for you and congratulation for this scholarship !

In Montreal, it is an asset to speak French, but then, i do not know enough to help you in this choice. I would definitely chose Montreal, for the city, its people and for the campus of McGill which is greatly located, but then this is a personal choice and not mainly based on work market. A 40k schorlarship would also help me choose Montreal over Toronto...

Well @ajchauhan7, I would say it is a personal choice since both are great schools.
Also, Apparently you are willing to invest the additional 40 k in forgone scholarship + 40 k in additional tuition to go to Rotman, so let's take money off the table.

Sure, Toronto is the bigger market and there will be more opportunities there than in Montreal, but you can study in Montreal and then move to Toronto, I'm sure that a degree from McGill will open you doors there but it will take you a bit more effort.

One interesting point about Rotman is the fact that it is more flexible in terms for example of when you can get the internship.

I think that the remaining factors come down to preference, US style of city vs European style city; big intake vs small intake.

Let us know your decision and final reasoning please.
