Well, personally, I am not a big fan of profile evaluations - someone here saying you can or cannot get in will not have any co-relation with the outcome.

Having said that, you have a 'traditional' profile in the sense that it seems to have a enough quantitative depth and you won't have to waste precious word count on justifying it. I think there was someone above who got in with a 700 and also got a $10k schol, so it isn't impossible. But you'll have to go for Round 2 (Round 3 doesn't allow you enough time to get visa done).

The good news is Rotman has a lot of differentiators (Creative Destruction Lab, Capstone Project), so once you research well, establishing your connect with the school shouldn't be a problem. Another resource I recommend is a blog that details the Rotman experience and courses, the link is in the first few pages of this thread, posted by a current student.

I hope this answers.

This definitely helps. And I am applying to round 2 itself. Sorry about the typing error there :)

I am assuming this is the typical indication of a rejected application, correct?
"Thank you for applying to the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto. The review of your application is now complete. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer you a place in our program at this time."

I asked the woman who interviewed me for some feedback but I am not expecting to hear anything back.

Yes, this would be a ding.

Hey! Were you interviewed by the admissions team or did they send you such an email without an interview?

So everyone is aware, this is my profile:
- 33 years old, caucasian male
- 87% average undergrad in Commerce majoring in Finance
- Worked for approximately 11 years - 3 years in investment banking and 7-ish years trading
- I have my CFA, so I have not written the GMAT yet

Damn! That's a really strong profile! I'm surprised to be honest.

I'm kind of assuming age too...but my question to that is why are they contacting me for an interview then?

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 :-)
