Hi All,

I clicked on final video interview link by mistake and did not realize until everything was complete :( :( . I was shocked to find a confirmation email, but finally had to admit that I made a terrible mistake. I am also 100 percent sure that I'll be evaluated on basis of under cooked video response and almost nothing for the written essay, as I was busy noting the question for practice.
I have dropped a mail to adcom, but not really hopeful. I do not wish to withdraw my application as I have worked hard for it. But that is the only solution that I can think of.
Is there a way around for this? Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Souvilibra


souvilibra, how about creating and submitted an application from a different email id. If your recommenders have already recommended you they will have to redo their work!

Yes they have, all things, except interview was complete. I have dropped a mail to adcom. I thought of creating a new profile, but decided against it and dropped a mail to them. I think now if redo all this, it will put me wrong light, wont it?
Can I still go ahead and create a new profile from scratch?

Thanks,
Souvilibra

Unlike other schools since Rotman has a surprise video essay round, it could like bad light. If the adcom doesn't respond, then I don't see a better alternative.

Good Luck. Do keep us updated.

Hey All,

My application and interview was all finished in round 1. I can say that the video interview seemed a little awkward but the prep time before the question is key. Focus on 3 main points you want to hit in your answer, articulate your thoughts and be yourself. I was told I will get an answer next week. Fingers crossed

Hi CMAC5,

What was your time line like? I submitted my application mid September and I haven't heard from them as yet. I have written to the Adcom and have been informed that they have still not looked at my application. I am starting to worry now.

I submitted on October 3rd and went for the interview the week after. There are a couple things to keep in mind when waiting.

1) If you submitted on or close to the deadline, a lot of applications get plopped on the admissions desk so it may take some more time

2) For local students it is easier to head to campus for an interview at anytime


Be patient and I am sure the process will be done as quickly as possible :)

Got an interview invite 12 hours ago. :-)

Indian male. Applied on October 15th.

People who attended the interview, can you share your experience...

PS: A reaffirmation on what someone earlier shared in this thread. My official transcript still hasn't been received by Rotman, but still I got a call. Hence you can breathe a little more deeply if you are concerned about your transcript not reaching the school.

Congrats. Hoping to apply by round 2. How was the written part of the video essay? Having some trouble with the format of my goals essay, any suggestions? About the interview, I would suggest you read up last year's thread. There is useful information there about what to expect from the interview. All the best.
