Hi rahul16singh28 ,

It depends on alot many factors such as GMAT, essays, work experience, extra curriculum, leadership responsibilities.

I would prefer you to post your detailed profile here and then seek help from admission consultants.

Good Luck :)

Hi Abhi,

As per the minimum criteria mentioned for Indian Student in the website is 8/10 GPA in undergraduate. Not sure.. but before applying first we need to check if we meet the minimum criteria. Please advise.

Hey rahul16singh28 ,

I am not sure where did you see this.

As per last year's FTMBA, the average GPA was 3.5

Moreover, I have a friend in Rotman who got in with 74%.

I don't think what you said is really true.

Are you applying for Part Time MBA?

If yes, then this criteria is for you. Check the link again.

FTMBA doesn't have such criteria and I believe your percentage won't be an issue.

Good Luck :)

I know mate. I have used the same to apply to Rotman.

Where do you see they said you need 8/10?

Also, since my friend got admitted with a 74% last year, so I don't think this criteria is alot that matters.

Bro,

Sharing the snapshot from that page. Its mentioned under Admission Requirement in the above link page. May bee I am bit confused here..
Also, mine was First Class with Distinction. I will be applying in R2 but I am completely stuck here now. Its clearly mentioned in Admission Requirement that minmum of GPA 3.0 is requireed (If in Canada) or 8.0 GPA if Studied from Indian University other than IIT (Minimum there 7.5/10).

Okay, I believe they have given 3 options

1. First class or First Division
2. 7.5/10 if from IIT
3. 8/10 if from others.

Do one thing, drop an email to admissions office and ask them about this.

As far as I know, I believe its okay to get anyone out of the above three options.

Hi rahul16singh28,

These requirements are just a soft requirement(meaning that the score below 8.0 will not lead to automatic disqualification)
It means that the preference would be to have a 8.0(if you are not from IIT's)
If the remaining parts of your application and top-notch don't bother, Just apply.

Anways, we had an admit chat organized in the month of August, where one of the admits had a 2.34(GPA)

Hope that helps you!

When did you submit your application? I submitted mine yesterday and I think it will take atleast 2-3 weeks for them to come out.

I submitted on oct week-1,

Just got one email to upload my resume. It was weird since when I submitted my application only 1 thing was pending. May be some error with portal.

They sent an email that they received. So likely that they started reviewing my apps?
