Hi,

Anyone has any idea in how many days the recommendors receive their forms?

It has been 3 days since I put in their details in the online application form and the status in the supplemental section shows 'sent', however, my references still haven't received any email from the school.

Thanks!

Hi,
I have certain doubts, would like if someone could clarify:
I) When you write WE:60, does it mean that it's 60 at time of submitting the application or at the time of material at noon, i.e. entering the class in September 2018?
II) Is it important to send scanned copy of your transcripts with the application? Would the scanned copy of all semester marksheets and degree be enough to calculate the the GPA and as a confirmation that I completed my undergrad course? I might not be able to arrange for the marksheets as my ungrad college is closed for a whole week for Christmas.

Hey divyangana Negi ,

Here are the answers:

1) When you write WE:60, does it mean that it's 60 at time of submitting the application or at the time of material at noon, i.e. entering the class in September 2018? --> It will be until September 2018. :)

2) Is it important to send scanned copy of your transcripts with the application? Would the scanned copy of all semester marksheets and degree be enough to calculate the the GPA and as a confirmation that I completed my undergrad course? I might not be able to arrange for the marksheets as my ungrad college is closed for a whole week for Christmas. --> As far as I know, you need to upload scanned copy of transcript with your application. If you don't have one, seek the advice of admission committee and request them to consider all marksheets at the moment and give you some time to upload the consolidated marksheet(aka Transcript). I think this should work.

All the best :)

Thanks for the information, abhimahna :)

Hey guys - since Rotman has 5 rounds of admissions - is applying round 3 a viable option for US students in terms of acceptance rates/scholarships Etc.?

I was initially pushing for round 2 but given that the deadline is the day before my GMAT retake - I'm considering the Feb round 3 deadline instead.

Just don't know if round 3 is considered as bad here as with most other schools that only have 4 rounds.

Nah, just apply whenever you're ready. They got rolling invites anyway

Hi,

On the website I found that the minimum GPA requirement for an Indian citizen is 7.5/10 if graduated from IIT or 8/10 for any other institute in the last year of the 4 year undergrad course. Is this really true? I've a significantly lower GPA 7.5/10 in the last year (non-II), should I even apply this year?


Just checking if anyone has answer to my query :) My apologies if the question is a little silly

The GPA is a soft cutoff. Don't worry about it. A good GMAT can compensate for it. Did for me!

Thanks man! Do you think 730 is good enough? I had applied last year with 700 but hadn’t received an interview invite.

I don't think the GMAT is going to be a factor considering you've got a 730. That checks the academic calibre box. Round up the rest of the parts of your application well and you should be sorted.

Hi Guys,

I am applying to the Rotman MBA program as an International student and have a few queries. I know that I'm a bit late but I am trying to submit the application as soon as possible. Here's my profile summary and question:

My experience is as follows - 2 years in IT, 2 years in Digital marketing and almost 4 years of entrepreneurship with my own digital marketing company.

I have been an entrepreneur for almost 4 years and want to showcase this experience. I have few good corporate clients who could give me recommendations. Would that be a strong enough case for Rotman or would I need to provide recommendations from my ex-employers?

Seeking advice from admitted students, current students or anyone with any similar experience or knowledge of the same.

Thanks!


Could someone help with this? Not sure whom to contact as they are shut for the next few days.

Though I have not been admitted, speaking purely from the experience that I have gained from this forum

I would recommend you to use one of your corporate clients and another from your ex- employers where you could showcase the impact that you made when you worked for your company.
Alternatively you could try and contact some of the current students via LinkedIn.

Hope this helps you.

P.S I shall PM you the username of some of the current students who were part of the chat we had here at GMATCLUB.

Just curious about this - the issue of sending transcripts to Rotman. Do I need to have my University mail the physical copies or can I do it too? The website isn't honestly clear about this.

I collected my transcripts physically from my University and then express couriered it to Rotman myself. As long as the transcripts are in a university envelope with a stamp/seal of your university it shouldn't be a problem.

PS: Some couriers (DHL in my case) offer student discounts if you are sending any couriers to a university. Worth a shot to ask in your country?

Cheers!

Hi

Had that same question when prepping for the video interviews but i found the response on the FAQ for "KIRA Talent" (The portal used by Rotman for recording the interviews) which should answer your question.

"Q: How many times can I do my practice questions?

A: You can complete your practice questions as many times as you’d like! You can even leave the page and come back at a later time. Your reviewer will never know how many times you completed the practice questions, so feel free to practice twice, or 20 times!

Just make sure you complete your actual assessment before the deadline your organization has set for you."

Cheers and Best of Luck!

Hello All,

I found this information here (http://www.rotman.utoronto.ca/Degrees/M ... nDeadlines)

You do not have to write the GMAT or GRE before you begin the application process. GMAT or GRE scores, transcripts and letters of reference may be submitted after the deadline, following submission of the application.

Just wanted to confirm that we can submit our GMAT score after deadlines?

Can someone help me with more info on this.

Regards
