Hey guys,

I'm having an interview with Rotman very soon. Any tips for the interview?


Be yourself. Research the program well and know answers to the question of Why an MBA now and Why Rotman.
Show your enthusiasm and wish you the best.

I am done with my ROTMAN interview yesterday evening. Sharing my experience.

The interview with Dimitra lasted about 40mins. Dimitra made me feel so comfortable, that it may not even be called an interview, was more like a casual chat with a few behavioural questions. The first few mins were just small talk so as to make me feel relaxed and comfortable. It helped that I had met Dimitra 1-2-1 when she was here in Singapore for the QS World MBA Tour in October. The questions (do not remember the particular order) were something like this. I might have missed adding one question from the interview.

- Walk me through your resume.
- Tell me one difficult decision that you had to make at work, and explain the obstacles and how did you negotiate the obstacles.
- Tell me your biggest professional achievement till date.
- Tell me one instance when you failed badly, and how did you bail yourself out of the situation. What did you learn?
- How and why did you decide to do an MBA? Why is now the perfect time?
- why ROTMAN? What do you intend to learn at ROTMAN and what are you most excited about ROTMAN? How will the skills learned at ROTMAN help you in your career?

At the end, DImitra said we were left with just enough time for 3 questions from my side. The interview ended with the information that I should be able to hear back from the ADCOM by next week.

The next few days are gonna seem like a few ages. Fingers crossed, and hoping to start the new year with some great news from ROTMAN.



Hi All,

I interviewed with Dimitra on 14th Jan (Thursday). She had mentioned that the next adcom meeting is scheduled for 15th Jan, and hence I should hear from ROTMAN early next week. Which means I should have heard from ROTMAN sometime earlier this week.

It's already 24th and 10 days since my interview, and I haven't heard anything yet from ROTMAN. Should I still play the waiting game or email Dimitra and check the status of my application?

Below is the timeline of my ROTMAN application:
Applied: 17th Nov
Invite received: 12th Jan
Interviewed: 14th Jan

Please share your suggestions. I am not totally freaked out yet, but I am starting to get a little nervous.

Jeet

This post was
BOOKMARKED
Just did my interview. It seemed like I was asked more questions than normal and difficult ones too. Here's most of it:

- Walk me through the highlights of your resume in 2-3 minutes
- How do you solve problems?
- Tell me about a time you convinced a colleague/supervisor
- How do you deal with setbacks? Provide examples
- What extracurricular activities are you involved in?
- What do you do for personal development?
- How does Rotman compare to the other schools you're applying to?
- What is your biggest professional achievement
- What did you learn in the past year?
- Why MBA?
- Why Rotman?
- What do you consider as success at Rotman?
- How do you plan to fund your MBA?

Then my questions...and she said to expect a reply in 2-3 weeks.
I was a bit nervous so I forgot a couple of things along the way and I admitted to actually being nervous (Yikes!). I wouldn't be surprised if I get dinged but then again I feel like I gave solid answers. I guess we'll know for sure in 2-3 weeks.
