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?


Ya applied as domestic. Interviewed on monday, she told me expect something by end of day friday.
My email is pretty generic, so i guess it is different for internationals.

I completed my application on Nov 20. No reply as of yet. Anyone who applied around that time and got an interview call? I'm an International applicant with 710 GMAT, 3.5 GPA, 60 months WE. My friend who applied on Nov 9 also hasn't gotten any reply yet.

Anyone?

Few of the people who applied well before the first round deadline are yet to hear. I know a few people here who have applied in late September or early October.

So, I suppose it may take time for you also.

it took my application less than 10 days altogether. It depends on whos reading your application as well. If the person is free then it might be fast,

P.S adcoms are going on vacation starting 20th so expect nothing from 20th till 4th january

Thanks pushpitkc

As an Indian applicant I assumed it'd take 1-2 months at least. But I thought I'd post it anyways to see if any exceptional profiles got an interview call much sooner.

Also, any idea what a CGPA of 7.6 (76%) in the last two semesters (National Institute of Technology) translates to? Furthermore, any idea if a post-graduate degree helps (I have an MBA from IIM Trichy). Total of 5 years work experience (2 pre MBA, 3 post MBA)

Hello everyone,

I applied to Rotman on 15th October (R1 Deadline). It has been almost 2 months since I submitted my application. Haven't heard back from them yet. Neither Reject nor Admit!
Does Rotman take that long to announce results?

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this thread and I'm planning to apply to Rotman for round 2 - January 8th. I noticed some folks mentioned applying in late October and November but wasn't the R1 deadline October 16th? So how can you apply after that but before the next round unless the admissions is rolling?

On another note, can anyone help me understand how the video essay portion of the application works? What do I need to do and what can I expect?

Also and probably most important for me right now - does anyone know if it's possible to submit your application but send GMAT scores afterward? For example - I wrote the GMAT this month but I'm registered to retake the exam 1 day after the round 2 deadline (the earliest GMAT date available in Jan). I had selected Rotman at the test centre before writing the exam so my score would be sent to them in the next 3 weeks. However, I would like to improve my score on 2nd attempt as I'm too below the average and want to know if I can complete the application by the deadline (using unofficial "old" score and then submit my second score the day after when I retake the exam?

Would appreciate any insight - thank you!

Congrats to everyone admitted so far. I think we should hook up on a whatsapp or facebook group to discuss further actions such as funding, deposits etc.

Applied on 16 Oct '17 but have not received any response yet.

I submitted my application with all required unofficial reports.

Could anyone please let me know if the Official gmat reports/ transcripts are compulsory before the decisions are made.

Thanks a lot.

Hey! You don't need to submit the official docs until you get the admit. The unofficial docs will do.

Hi everyone,

This is my first post on the forum and I would like to say thank you to everyone here, your posts have been tremendous help during my application process.

I applied to Rotman in October before my scheduled GMAT test date, and I received the interview invite after my unofficial score came out on the 21st of November. Had my interview over Skype with Chris Jones on the 5th of December, and at the end of the interview he said I could expect a result before their campus closing for the holiday.

But he sent me a text message yesterday asking me if I would be available next Monday, and that he would like to "chat with me in person regarding my applications decision". I'm quite curious as I'd assumed they would simply send me an email whether they want me or not. Had this happened to any of you guys?

A little bit about my profile:
Chinese applicant
Bachelor Degree from the States, Finance/Accounting Major, 3.58 GPA
IELTS 8, although I don't need it
GMAT 660 48/33, lower than the class average :(
2 years work experience in sports industry as an project manager/event coordinator
5 years in a liquor trading/distribution company, started as a product manager for imported wine, now overseeing the marketing and sales too
