Just got my admit yesterday, had applied in R1. Waiting to hear from Schulich to then make the decision. Hopefully a dilemma is coming my way :)

That's a very long admission process.... finger cross for my case

Guys.

I am admitted to Rotman with 15k scholarship. However, I'm now in a dilemma. I received higher amount of scholarship from McGill.
Tuition fee and living costs are higher in Toronto but employability for non French speaker like me is obviously better in Toronto than Montreal. I want to get into Business Development after graduation. Any advice, please?

Study in Montreal and work in Toronto. How about that? Low investment, high ROI.

If I was in your shoes, I'd still go to Rotman. I didn't look at my financial situation, I just looked at the School, what I can get out of the education and extracurriculars, and my post-MBA experience. I think it's invaluable to be posted in downtown Toronto: the networking opportunities you get and the out-of-class learning you get just can't be found anywhere else in Canada. Is this worth the extra scholarship and lower tuition and cost of living in Montreal? For me it is. The only way I'd have chosen to go to Desautels is if I got dinged at Rotman; even then I might have just chosen to go to the States or Europe.

But this is your decision, so it's tough. What does that gap in the financial situation mean to you...

Also, going to Desautels and finding a job in Toronto, is not that easy. Recruiters hire locally. Do not expect any help from the Desautels career centre if you're looking to relocate after the MBA, because most likely they won't have the reach. You are also hours away and it's not cheap to travel from Montreal to Toronto quickly if you have interviews or coffee chats. Not saying it's impossible to make the leap to Toronto from Desautels, just saying it's harder than you think especially since you're an international student and will have no network in Toronto to work from.

PS - I can't speak for Desautels since I never intended on going there and never looked into them, but Rotman has a great Business Development and Business Design programs.

Congratulations Kevin!

It is a great situation to be in. Choosing a business school is a decision that will shape your future life, and you must choose wisely.

Having said that, there is hardly a choice to make here. From what I have read, I get a sense that Rotman has everything else going for it, and Deseutels is cheaper. Unless the investment needed for going to Rotman was a mountain too high, I would have gone for Rotman. And I believe Marvin Gaye, when he says - ain't no mountain high enough.

Also, while we are still on dilemmas, check this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeZCNs46YA8

Wish you the very best.

Hi Kelvin91....
Many congratulations on your admit on the primers....
Meanwhile there is simply no other answer to your question that going to Rotman will pay you back so fast that you may think as rightly described by jigglypuff.... also, check the mcgill review of one of the current students on gmatclub school reviews, and look for the rotman videos on youtube, it will certainly give you a better, way better idea.

All the very best for your right decision in progressing your future.

Hey Guys ! I applied on 9th January. Is it too soon to expect any reply ? Should I write to Adcom asking for an update or will that be useless ?

They have their standard responses ready. Nevertheless, it worth a try.

Hey, I applied on 9th Jan too. I read an article on wsj reporting there is around 20% surge in applicants to Rotman this year (indirect Trump effect?). Thus, the Adcom should be much more busy so I think we should be patient and wait.

So, I had applied in Round 1 and was interviewed just yesterday- almost three months from the day I filled in the application. You'll just have to sit tight and wait.

Hey vks0088, my both interviews lasted about 40-45 mins with standard questions like: why MBA, why this school, how you defined your success, what your short and long term goals are, some behavioral questions. Some of the guys have posted the interview questions in the discussion threads for Desautels and Rotman. Those are essentially the questions being asked in the interview.

I personally feel these interviews like conversations to get to know you better and if the program aligns with your values and career aspirations.

Best of luck for your applications.
