Hey guys - just a quick question on the video essay portion - are we allowed to go through the practice questions and then quit and do the actual video essay another time? Or once you click "check in" and go through the practice questions you're obligated to finish the real thing?

Thanks!


Hi,

Yes, you can practice as much as you want (although there are only 3-4 practice questing rolling) before you start actual session.

Correct, you can log in and out as many times as you need until you start your actual session.

hi guys!
A late Merry Christmas to you all!

I am an applicant from China and I planned on apply to Rotman for 2017 intake in R2.
I've scored 670 in GMAT (Q48 V34) and 7.5 in IELTS (L: 7.5 R: 8.5 W: 6.5 S: 6.5)
My GPA is around 3.4/4
I worked 2 years in Saudi Arabia in the filed of project management.

As a matter a fact, I shoot for 5 school together and they are Rotman( toronto), Smith( queens), Degroote(mcmaster), Lazaridis( Laurier) and Haskayne( Calgary). Rotman is the only school which I haven't completed on.
Up to now, Mcmaster has scheduled an interview with me on 5th of Jan. and Queens has moved my application to its 2018 Jan. Intake due to my late submission.

However, after reading along all your profiles in this thread, I feel unconfident about mine...
Do you think i should give up on Rotman and focus on other schools since there seems to be no chance for me to compete?
Would like to hear from your suggestions.

Thanks a lot and wish you guys all the best on Rotman application.

Only you can answer that question. Start thinking like an MBA.

What's the cost for you to complete that application? This cost includes the financial cost, as well as the opportunity cost of time that could've been spent working on other applications. What does this cost mean to you personally?

What's the benefit of the probability of you getting in? It's difficult to predict what chances anyone has of getting in, but let's say it's 50%; what does the benefit of a 50% chance of getting in mean to you? Is a 10% chance of getting in at Rotman better than a 90% chance getting in at DeGroote? When I was in my submission phase, my answer was a definitive yes. I was pretty much guaranteed a seat and a scholarship at DeGroote, yet I would've given this up for a 10% chance at Rotman. But this is your decision to make; only you would know what these decisions would mean to you.

Now do the cost-benefit analysis and decide which way you should take.



Dear Jigglypuff,
Thanks for your kind and inspiring reply!
I've already started to work with all my effort on my essay.
Succeed or not, it's an invaluable improvement for me.

Happy new year!

Best regards

The Essay topic is: When you reflect 10 years from now, how will you measure your MBA experience? (500 words)

Hi,

Fast forward and then reflect and also mention how Rotman would have played a role.

Cheers,

George

Submitted application today using the CFA exemption for GMAT. My UG grades are pretty terrible too - about a 2.6 in the final year.
Felt like I might have stumbled a bit on the video questions.

Let's see what happens. Good luck to everyone else.

In the form did you see a section for submitting your marks/GPA as of now I only see the option to add your university and details like when did you attend. Will they be using just the transcripts we sent to find the aggregate without asking it in the form.

Please help urgently as I was hoping to submit it in the today/tomorrow :)

You submit them where you submit your resume and references - the supplemental items section under my account.

That's the transcripts section I was referring to filling exact marks. I was apprehensive because my university reports it in marks rather than GPA so the manual conversion to GPA might be less. I am hoping they use the year passed out and university for calculating GPA relatively

Not sure I understand here? You just need to upload the transcript for your 3-4 years in university in the section it asks for Unofficial transcripts.

Rotman2016 and jigglypuff - Do international applicants have a realistic shot in Round 3? Most US schools have a strict Jan deadline for internationals. Is Rotman more accommodating in this area? The website mentions that Round 3 is the last deadline for internationals and they have rolling admissions.

I'm not satisfied with my application yet and would like to submit 1-2 weeks after their Round 2 deadline but I want to know if my chances of admission get drastically reduced if I apply in Round 3 instead of Round 2? Especially since I'm an Indian and thus belong to a competitive pool of applicants.

Thanks!

Does anyone here feel that you do not perform well in the video essay and still get an interview invite? For the first question, I think the screen only showed my face ( not the shoulder) but I did not adjust it to focus on my answer more. However I did adjust the screen in my answer to the second question. Still worried though bcz of the bad delivery of the first answer

Not sure, if I am rejected or in the waitlist. I submitted my application on oct 18 and have not received any response from the admission team after that.

I believe I have a decent profile with 3.5 yeas of work ex in a leading business research firm (monitor consulting spin off), early promotions, and 720 GMAT score.

Since you applied on October 18th, you're application falls in the bracket of the 2nd round of applications. You'll have to wait till the decision deadline of Round 2 for them to get back to you.

Bottom line is you have already got the interview invite, right? Then it's interview preparation time :-D

I don't think they care how well you filmed yourself; the School isn't testing anyone on video skills, but rather the answers they come up with. I've heard of much crappier videos from my classmates at Rotman. Unless you did the video naked or otherwise dressed like a slob; I highly doubt they care.
