670-700 GMAT should be good, you'd be in the average range. try to hit 700+ to make sure you've covered all your bases (consulting firms look for 700+ in case you decide later on that's what you want to do).

whether your profile is okay or not, that really depends on admissions. no one else here can say if it's good or not. just make sure you differentiate yourself from the pack.

This is what the Rotman page has to say about english language proficiency requirement.

6. English Language Proficiency

One of the following:

Undergraduate or graduate degree from a recognized English language university
TOEFL iBT (internet based test) score of 100 overall, with a minimum of 22 on speaking and writing. Rotman's TOEFL test code is 0982.
IELTS score of 7.0. You must mail us a hard copy of your official IELTS score report.
Grade B from Academic English Level 60 at the University of Toronto English Language Program is acceptable in terms of meeting the English facility requirement.
Note: Students in India and Pakistan do not require further proof of English language proficiency if they have graduated from an English-language university.


I am from India. Does it mean that I don't have to give TOEFL/IELTS?

i'm not jiggly darnit lol.

i'm not very sure about the finance side at rotman, since i'm on the consulting side. however, from my understanding, finance puts a lot of weight on networking and experience. since you have four years at a big 4 AND a grad degree, i think you're good on the experience side. if you want to switch into quant finance, and you're looking into applying at rotman, i would suggest start networking now and forming your relationships. many of my friends who got top finance gigs for the summer already had them by october. unfortunately, i'm not sure about the opportunities since i'm not looking into that career path.



Hi there,

You mentioned you're on the consulting front at Rotman. How are the opportunities like for consulting at Rotman? Does the career services help you a lot?

Also, my GMAT is a 640 only and GPA a 3.1 - do you think that puts me at a great disadvantage in my Rotman application?

What consulting opportunities are you leveraging? and did you secure an internship there in consulting?

Thank you.

knight2015 : read what you highlighted. did you graduate from an english-speaking university?

----------

sghosal99 : profile looks good. but again, for a more accurate assessment, please speak to the admissions team. what's interesting about this whole profile assessment thing is that even if you're great on paper, and they like you, it does not guarantee entry. they look at your profile and personality, and see how you fit into the class as a whole. if there just happens to be 20 other applicants with very similar profiles as you, except they have longer experience or slightly better GMAT, they'd take them over you (if personality is the same). and even if you're better than all the other applicants except those 20, unfortunately they've already got 20 better versions of you. does that make sense? it's about diversity, in terms of industry experience, languages, nationality, background academics, personal stories, etc.

----------

divs173 : honestly, it depends on who you talk to. if you come in thinking that things will be handed to you because you got into rotman, you're not gonna get an internship and you'll blame the school saying they didn't help you enough. on the other hand, if you come in working your ass off, you'll get a placement. and yes career services help you a lot, but they will not come look for you. you have to take the initiative, but once you do they are very helpful. i spoke to my career coach at least one every two weeks, and during recruiting season, several times a week. they make time for you, especially if you've got interviews coming up.

in my opinion, yes, your GMAT and GPA are disadvantageous. while you meet the minimum requirements (or lack thereof), you are below the average. unless you have stellar work experience, i don't think you'll cut it. but again, confirm with admissions and see what they say. they might still like you based on your personal story and work experience. on the other side of what i mentioned earlier in this post, just because you have an under-average GMAT and GPA, if you have a very unique profile and you are very differentiated from the rest of your class, you have a good chance. so talk to admissions.

but i will say this. unless you hit near 3.8, 3.9 GPA in you first term at rotman, you will not get an internship with that GMAT. they typically look for 700+. if consulting is what you want to do, i may suggest that you consider retaking the GMAT.

i am looking at all opportunities in strategy, whether at a pure strategy house like MBB, or an ops strategy house like ATK or Deloitte S&O. and yes i did get an internship.

Now that the race for MBA program has begun I believe many of you have already taken the GMAT and are looking into the application process.
Many of us move toward various consultancy services to guide us in the application process. These services are very costly and to add to it they don't really provide a deeper insight into the offerings of the universities.
All we can do is find current student/Alumni on LinkedIn and just hope that they do get back to us.
Lets say they do revert but many a times due to time crunch they are not able to help us properly.
I recently came across a website which targets exactly this aspect of the whole process.
This website has current students and alumni of all top notch universities registered with them.
You can choose your mentor on it and work on your application under their guidance. They help you in creating your stories and with the intricacies of the universities that are best know to them. Moreover, the provide editing service as well. All this at a much lower price than the what the normal consultancy services charge.
Go through the website http://www.appdeft.com.
You can find the details on this website.

I hope you guys will find this site helpful.

Good luck to all Rotman Applicants!!


  • Great job jigglypuff! Many thanks for taking time out of your schedule for the community. Much appreciated! :thumbup:

  • I've just updated the first post with application deadlines for 2016 Intake. If anyone is interested in becoming ThreadMaster for this forum, please PM me.

  • I saw quite a few posts seeking profile evaluation. PLEASE NOTE that this thread is the place where applicants get to know one-another, exchange ideas/information, discuss application strategies, share interview /school visit experiences, get valuable tips from current students/alumni, and boost one-another's morale to face the tough admission process. We have a separate profile evaluation section on GMATClub (Ask Admission Consultants). Let us try to build this thread in a way that the future applicants can come here and gather useful information without much trouble. Thank You!

So i guess i am going to fire the first salvo here! Rotman has now decreased the Essays to 1 large essay and a reflection question. Having said that, they have now introduced a third essay in the Video module which includes a written response. Has any one here experienced that? Any do's and don't,s there?

Hello guys,
I wish to apply to Rotman round 1. I've sent my scores to the school. But instead of 2 year course, I selected 1 year executive course.
Do I need to send the score separately for a 2 year course ?

Thanks,
Souvilibra

Hi Souvilibra, I believe yes. As per my understanding scores need to be sent to the programmes and not the school. So you would have to send it to the 2 year course separately I think, just like how you will need to submit two separate applications for 2 different programmes.

HI All,
This is regarding Official University Transcript 1*, which says- Please arrange for official transcripts from your attended University to be sent to Rotman. Submission status will change to 'Received' once they have arrived at Rotman.

Is this to be done at the time of application submissions? Will a xerox of transcript with stamp+signature of registrar do the job?
