Posted from my mobile device


Sure. I submitted my application yesterday morning.

Male
26 yo
Undergrad in politics from UCL (3.7GPA), MA in Politics from KU Leuven, Belgium (can't remember GPA)
3 yrs work exp - British govt, lobbying and PR firms in London and now do govt comms. Based in Dubai, but go to Saudi regularly.
UK, Irish, Canadian passports (born in the UK, but lived in Ireland. Only ever visited Canada)
Submitted a GRE


Congrats for the interview!
As far as this thread is concerned, you are the first one to get an interview call
You maybe the first one to have submitted the application :)
Btw, Hope this is for the Fall-2017 intake?

Do let us know your interview experience once it is done.



Fall 2018 entry. Fairly sure the 2017 entry deadlines have passed?

Also for everyone stressing about GMAT result, don't. My GRE score isn't great (only had a a month to prep for it and 9 of those days I was on holiday). From my understanding - I've spoken with admissions and current students - Rotman takes a far more holistic approach to candidates' profiles and focus on a range of areas. I don't know for certain, but I imagine my international experience and undergrad & postgrad institutions were prob what made my application stand out, rather than my GRE score, which, let's face it, cannot be considered that accurate a measure of how much one will achieve.

Apologies for the typo.. :lol:
Corrected the typo, I meant Fall 2018..

That happened because to the excitement
of seeing somebody getting an interview invite this early
in the application cycle :o

The thread will surely come alive now :)
All the best for the interview. Hope you convert it !

How were you informed about the interview ? I mean by telecom or email or any other way. Also how will your interview going to be conducted? By skype or in person ?
What is your GRE score ? If you want to share of course.

Thanks. They sent me an email re the interview, which will be next week. I'm also meeting with a Rotman representative next month in Dubai, where I am currently based.

Can't remember exact GRE, but the overall score 'exceeds Rotman's competitive requirements'. I only took the GRE a few days ago and still haven't got an official score.

Considering whether to apply to HBS and Yale SOM now, but the more I research Rotman, the more it becomes my preferred choice. Also plan on staying in Canada afterwards to make the most of my citizenship, which so far I've only used to enter the USA without having to get an ESTA!

Thanks for the updates. Do share your interview experience with us. Additionally you can refer sheiquiroga and her blog posts for better interview preparation. You can find the link in this forum, a few pages back.
I think the Rotman team is on QS World MBA tour to China and Dubai for next two weeks. I am not sure though.
All the best.

You have a very unique profile KPMBA,
so the GRE scores are just another requirement in your case!

But the reason we are all fretting about the GMAT/GRE scores is the average for Indians
is generally 20-30 points higher as compared to the school average(which was 655 last year)
and this is one thing that might help score some brownie points, considering most of us have
a very similar profile :)

By the way, if you don't mind my asking : How do hold 3 passports,
especially the Canadian passport - is it a perk of your job with the British govt?

I understand, that makes sense. I am still concerned my experience might hold me back as my quant background is quite weak.

Regarding my passports:
British from birth
Irish & Canadian from family ties

Hey Pushpitkc,

I am expecting the average GMAT to rise by atleast 10-15 points due to the restrictions in US and the Select Section Order of GMAT.
As per the website,the average GMAT for Class of 2018 was 665. Do you mean to say that there was no surge in the average GMAT despite the huge rise in demand of Canadian Bschools this year?

Regards,
Vivek

Hi DivN,

I apologize for the confusion.
On checking the website, I realize that the 665 GMAT average was for the class of 2018!
Will try and find the average for the class of 2019 at the earliest and post it here.
It is not available on the rotman website as of now.

Sorry once again for the confusion and thanks for pointing that vivek6199 :)

Btw, how are your apps coming along? Have you completed the GMAT?

Welcome buddy!! I am not sure if the questions is meant for me.
I have scheduled my GMAT in Sept 3rd week and I am still crafting my goals and shortlisting my schools. I think I can apply to Rotman only in Round 2.
What about you?? When is your test?

Yeah those questions were meant for you :)
I don't want to push Rotman to R2,
but considering that I am also planning my GMAT around mid September(Yet to take a date, btw)
am not sure if I would be able to complete the rest of the application by the Round 1 deadline which is October 16th

Also, don't know what the GMAT score will be and will it be good enough :D
Lots of if's and but's.. But if everything goes as per plan should apply by the R1 deadline, else will apply in R2 along with you!

Yep, interview's done.

Questions were interesting, with some fairly tricky ones, e.g. teach me something in two minutes, example of when you've wanted something and have worked towards achieving it.

Annoyingly my Skype connection wasn't great, and there was about a 5second delay.

Congrats on completing the interview. Any idea, by when will you notified of your admission decision?
Also, how long did the interview last and could you please give us a gist of the interview?
