My interview was on Dec 1, 2017. I received an email from Jamie Young yesterday at 4:52 EST indicating my rejection.


I believe you must have established something during the 11 years of experience, and the admission committee must want to hear great stories from your experience.
Also, from what you have already achieved, your purpose of pursuing an MBA might be a crucial point cause you are already on the summit of a small hill and they might have a higher bar for you and ask for more profound plans and desires of you doing an MBA.
Just some personal opinion :-)

Any thoughts here guys? i just wanted to understand whether Rotman will conduct an interview for me or would i be evaluated simply based on incoming applications quality. And how do my chances look?

Thanks.

MB, I applied on R1 deadline date i.e Oct 15th. I had received no communication regarding any interview interim, and I just received this wait-list email yesterday. i had been following up with the adcom and they kept indicating that results will be declared prior to December 15th. Very confusing really.

Oh i get it. They had a similar candidate with slightly better profile. And they offered him/her the seat. So if that person accepts it you're SOL if not you get the seat.
Or if someone with similar background is offered a seat but doesnt accept then you're the next in line. Hope it makes sense.

Mind sharing your profile and test score. Just to get an idea of their choices.

Congrats mbsingh on the admit.

From what one of the first admits of this season who received a $30k scholarship told me, he received it along with the accepted mail.

Hope that helps.

I guess no dolla dolla bills for me then. It was a generic email. and there's no mention of accept the offer in a month or any fee payment either.

Yeah, he mentioned something about having to accept the offer in less than a months time.

The rules for domestic candidates might be slightly different I suppose. Btw, had you applied as a domestic/international candidate?
