Declined my offer at Rotman last week. That's one more spot up for grabs.

BOOKMARKED
Hi, guys. 2nd year Rotman MBA student graduating this April. Congratulations to those all accepted and I hope things work out for everyone as well whether you decide to pursue MBA or not. I just want to say past two years have been an incredible experience that made me grow so much full of challenges and learning opportunities.

I just wanted to share a few advices for all who want to be prepared for 1st year Rotman and also want to know what 1st year MBA will be learning. Please understand that it's my personal opinion and does not represent the school's opinion.

1. Take a basic excel class online and try to learn how to do quantitative analysis. Excel will be your best friend at Rotman.
2. Try taking online introduction to finance or accounting class. If you never took finance or accounting before, I strongly urge you to do so as while you may think you will learn them at school once the term starts, your learning capacity will be maximized and have an easier time understanding the concepts if you prepare a bit in advance.
3. Continue to study your certifications and strengthen your resume. Take those certifications before Rotman and start building your portfolios. MBA is definitely an asset, but as you will be competing against your fellow classmates as well as entire Canadian MBAs and US potentially, it is important to continue to fortify your core strengths. This is important for internships and fulltime job search especially as I realized.

I also recommend start contacting a few students at Rotman that aligns with your career interest to identify what skills and competencies you need to secure a great job or achieve a dream that you're pursuing.

I did write about this in my blog (https://joshatrotman.wordpress.com/2015 ... rting-mba/), and am planning to make more posts.

Good luck all.

Don't know yet but I'm willing to take a chance. Couldn't push the deposit deadline any further.

TechMBAGirl: I see. I hope you make it to Stanford (I saw that earlier as one of your schools) If not, I hope Haas accepts you :)

Good luck!

Guys

I applied in R3 (February the 29th) But I haven't heard back from the school yet. Is there anyone in the same boat? I have already checked with the Admissions Team once and they said that my application is under review. Pestering 'em again with the same question looks apprehensive to me.

What do you suggest. Should I get over with it?

Thanking in anticipation.

Got the admit via phone call today. I applied R3 and had my interview 2 weeks ago. Hang in there if you applied R3 and have not heard back!

Hello Guyz,

I submitted my application on 29th Feb 2016. However, I am yet to hear from adcoms. Considering the decision date of 15th April, have I been dinged?

I am loosing patience as this admission cycle has not been very productive for me this year.

Thanks

No. Don't be disappointed. I am in the same boat. We have a week to go. If we hear from them "great", if we do not the situation isn't too worse either. Most of the people who have applied in this round have received admits and rejects both. Rotman keeps reviewing the applications from time to time and whoever they deem appropriate to interview, they interview. The ones that are left towards the end are WL'ed.

In Round 2, the same case happened. Three of my friends, yes three, who did not hear from Rotman till the decision date got a common mail saying that " you are waitlisted". Just pray that you receive a interview e mail.

Cheers

Hi!

In the same boat here. Applied 2/25 and still nothing, so I am asumming I've been WL'ed. Could you let us know what happened to your friends in the end/how long did it take for them to get a decision after the WL notification?

Thanks!

Anything at all, guys?
Roughly 3 days to go before the decision date for R3.
Apart from the recent email response that "my application is under review and expect a decision ASAP", haven't heard anything more.
And, I have been patiently waiting for a new response ever since.

What happens if and when we are wait-listed? How long are we kept hanging until we are let off the hook?

TodorovMillwall I know. WL without interview is such a horrible thing. It's better to get accepted or rejected. At least you know the answer.

Haha yeah. I guess it's better than being rejected outright, though!

Think my chances might have been better if I applied in an earlier round. Had everything in order to submit in R2, but the procrastination monster got to me :(

I haven't heard from them since about a week after I submitted my application (I asked Lynda then if official transcripts were required along with the initial application, somewhat optimistically hoping that was the only reason they hadn't fallen over themselves to interview me yet :lol: ).

Will probably get in touch again once I've received confirmation that I'm on the WL.
