I'm seeing a lot of R2 applicants that have started receiving interview calls. I'm starting to get a bit nervous now since I haven't received a call yet.. Given that the R2 admission decision date is 26 Feb 2016, does anyone know approximately up to which date can they possibly send out interview invites?

Guys, I am in the same boat. Was quite confident of my profile and sure of an interview invite atleast. However, it now seems can't be sure of anything. Just to check have everybody sent their original transcripts to Rotman at the time of application submission. Am I missing something??

I have a few questions :

1) Rotman is ranked #1 in Canada, but 60 globally (per FT). Does anyone know the reason for this? I would think a #1 school in a country would have a higher rank. It is surprising that even schools like Bocconi (Italy) are ranked above Rotman.

2) Does Rotman allow for deferring admission to next year?

3) Will I get a 3 year work permit upon graduation?

4) What is the visa process like after graduation , to obtaining PR and then a Canadian passport?

5) Is it easy to get a job even in US after obtaining a Canadian passport?

Would appreciate some inputs .

Thank you.

Various factors could affect ranking i.e. how long Rotman has participated in the surveys and class size. Personally I don't place too much emphasis on global ranking but rather on how the school is ranked within the country its in as my objective is to work and settle in that country after my MBA.

2) Does Rotman allow for deferring admission to next year?
I think one can defer, but it is at the discretion of the admissions committee and you need to have paid the CAD$5000 acceptance fee

3) Will I get a 3 year work permit upon graduation?
Yes u will

4) What is the visa process like after graduation , to obtaining PR and then a Canadian passport?
The work permit obtainedd after graduation is open so after a year of working you can apply for PR status. The new citizenship rules require you to have been resident in Canada for 4 out of the last 6 years from the date of application so you can apply for citizenship 4 years after you get your PR

5) Is it easy to get a job even in US after obtaining a Canadian passport?
A Canadian passport will open a lot of doors and I believe you can work any where in the world as long as you meet the employer's requirements but you will still have to apply for and get a work permit

Would appreciate some inputs .

Thank you.

same here..Lynda said the same to me that official transcripts can be sent once an admission is offered. Also, last week when I had checked with her about my app status, she said it is yet to get reviewed and that there are quite a few pending! So, hang in there guys..

Rotman is usually quick once the interview is over. So even though the final date for R2 is Feb 26, do not lose hope till the end!! :)

All the Best!! :thumbup:

1) Rotman is ranked #1 in Canada, but 60 globally (per FT). Does anyone know the reason for this? I would think a #1 school in a country would have a higher rank. It is surprising that even schools like Bocconi (Italy) are ranked above Rotman. - The FT rankings are very biased and favor American and European universities, some average European universities such as Cranfield School of Management and Manchester Business School are ranked above Rotman. I have previously attended Warwick Business School for my masters in Finance and from what I have seen so far from my research Rotman is miles ahead when it comes to the MBA (even though Warwick is ranked higher).

2) Does Rotman allow for deferring admission to next year? - I am not sure about this, I would be very surprised if they did not allow it.


3) Will I get a 3 year work permit upon graduation? - Yes, it is stated on the Rotman website and immigration Canada website that any student enrolled on a 2 year (or longer) programme is eligible for a 3 year work permit.


4) What is the visa process like after graduation , to obtaining PR and then a Canadian passport? - After obtaining the 3 year Canadian work permit on graduation and working for one year in Canada you can apply for express entry permanent residency (if not successful first time can apply again the following year).

5) Is it easy to get a job even in US after obtaining a Canadian passport? - I think that there is some agreement for the freedom of movement of workers under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which the US, Canada and Mexico are party to, but there may be some restrictions for certain industries.

Admitted student here (class of 2018), thought I'd chip in.

1) A key reason why Rotman's ranking fell this year is the weak CAD. Most rankings (FT included) give heavy weightage to the post-MBA salary, but those figures are equalized in USD for facilitating comparison. This is why we see schools like IIM-A with a mind-boggling average salary of $174,274 (as per FT), which is obviously not the case in reality. To cut to the chase, it's better not to rely too much on rankings and focus on other tangible aspects of the schools. Rotman is by far the best b-school in Canada with a fantastic faculty and resources. Not to mention that being part of UofT has its own benefits.

2) No, Rotman does not allow deferral of admission. We have an accepted student in the current batch who was accepted last year also, but couldn't join due to visa issues. Her admission was not deferred so she is joining this year. This year also requests for deferral have been denied.

3) Yes you will.

4) Someone above has answered this question very well, nothing to add here.

5) It's relatively easier in work visa terms. I can't recall the exact details at the moment, but Canadian citizens can work in the US based on a visa category that does not permit applying for a green card, unlike the H1B. As for getting a job itself in the US, that is entirely up to your experience, capabilities and networking. Being a Canadian citizen won't make much of a difference there.
