Has anyone who has received an admission decision from Rotman for R2 also applied to US schools? The deadline to pay the "sizeable" enrollment deposit is days before even the first of the US schools start to send out admission decisions. Do you think this is deliberate by Rotman or is the Canadian school schedule just that different from the US school schedule. How are applicants expected to compare offers and make the best decision for them, I wonder? Thoughts?


Rotman is my safety school and it's just inconvenient that they replied so early. I'm applying to one other school in the US for R2 and 2 others for R3. I'd rather risk losing the offer than pay the huge deposit at a school I probably wouldn't attend (hopefully).

I begged for an extension on the deposit deadline and it was granted after several back and forth emails about how I'll be taking someone's spot if I don't attend. I call BS. Rotman has several rounds after March and a waitpool of amazing candidates. They'll be just fine.


So how long do you have till you have to pay the deposit to Rotman?

Here's hoping you get into Stanford so that you can vacate a spot for us the wait listed candidates! :-D


I have till the end of the month. Hopefully, there'll be a free spot for someone who really wants it

Denied without interview :( Got the decision yesterday. Had submitted my application on 28th Feb. I had written a mail to the adcom director requesting to expedite my application after the ISB results were out. Didn't go according to plan :P Anyway, happy that I got into ISB!

What I can see from the trend here on GC is that the people who have applied in Round 3 (Deadline: 29th February, 2016) will receive calls according to how strong their candidacy is. This is just a guess, but Rotman reviews the applications as and when they come and give interview calls to the one who they deem competitive. Rest of the applicants gets on hold before they make a decision on 'em and then again roll out more calls.

Few of my friends who applied in R2 and did not hear back anything from Rotman were wait listed when they sent them e mails (This happened just before the decision date for R2)

Let's see how it goes. I hope we get to hear from 'em soon!

Accepted!
In off the waitlist after about 3 weeks. For those wondering, I didn't update profile or contact admissions during that time (although typically it is recommended). Package should come in a couple days, anyone know if fellowships/scholarships are off the table for waitlisters? Best of luck to all.

P.S. Thanks to gmatclub for all the help with gmat and application prep. What a long, strange trip its been.



Congrats JoyfulDan

I got the reject mail today !!:(

Hi guys, could you advise my situation?
I applied two schools in Canada and got admission to both: UBC and Rotman. Problem is no scholarship. I can afford UBC only in my situation (I already consider loan). US school can give me a good offer but I don't want to play lottery with H1B. What should I do?

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS on your admission! I have been through the application process, so I can empathize with how challenging it is. Now, looking at your case: it's a tough position to be in, Shiteton. For internationals with no co-signer, it is very tough to get loans, but, tuition is cheaper. For US schools, there is easier access to loans, but, tuition is more expensive AND you have the challenge of the H1B lottery. It all depends on what your long-term goals are. Do you want to remain in North America? Is that more important to you than the brand / prestige of your program? These are questions only you can answer. For some people, staying on in Canada with the opportunity for permanent residency may be more important than going to a more prestigious, but more risky US program. Whatever you decide, I wish you all the very best.
