Hey everyone!

I just got done with my interview with Ally Morrow and all in all it was a pleasant experience. The interview lasted for 50 minutes and was very conversational. For all the Indian applicants on this group, I have some news:

The admissions team will be looking at interviewing most of you when they come down for their event in India sometime during the end of this month. Especially all of you who are from the cities that they will be visiting. The rest of you might have a skype interview. So sit back and hold tight! Don't get disheartened right now.Expect invites to flow in as late as the 3rd week of this month!

Stay positive and stay hopeful. All the best!


Best news today!

I am within that range. I was interviewed last week and was admitted this week.

I'm a domestic applicant though, in case you're wondering.

Hope that helps!

You can check your eligibility for express entry (skilled) at
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/ ... /index.asp

Basically I think if you have several years of work experience & Bachelor degree with IELTS passed, you should be eligible. And after you apply, they will put you in a pool where you will be scored alongside other candidates, based on your experience, etc.

I think there's a 2016 express entry immigration report or something on the website, you can check it up.

However, I am not sure whether PR will significantly increase the chance of getting in.

Yes, @sherryoung is right. A PR won't put you in the canadian pool for admissions. You will still be counted as an Indian citizen. A canadian passport is a different thing though.

It can take anything from 6 - 9 months to get your permanent residency (assuming its approved). So no, unless your plan is to immigrate then wait to apply in Round 1 in 2018.

I have got a query. I am new on gmatclub. I have a B.Tech degree(non-iit) with 69.45%(7.31/10) in first division with a gmat score of 710. My university follows absolute gpa system rather than relative. When i checked the requirements, three conditions were written under Mid-B requirement. I fulfill the first one i.e. first class/division. Am i eligible for applying to Rotman?

Most of us are waiting to hear from them. Let's wait a little more. They are coming to India for an admission event, so I am assuming they will take the interviews during those days. :fingers_crossed: :fingers_crossed:

Any interview invites? Admits?

It has been awfully quiet! Hope lots of Indians receive interview admits
before Rotman touches down in India!

Hi all,

I just had an interview with Leigh Gauthier. It was pleasant and quite informal. The questions asked were:

- Why Rotman and Canada
- Walk me through your resume
- (ask about a specific point on my resume)
- Short term goal
- Have you ever wanted something so badly, you were unstoppable
- An example of networking
- If you teach a class, what it would be/ Teach me something in that class
- Is there anything that you wish I'd asked you
