A quick question about Round 2 versus Round 3.

There is a very good chance a recommender may not be able to fill in all the details by 8th Jan. So I would have to push my application to Round 3. Just how would my chances to get in be affected on account of this? I am an international applicant. Curious to know more on this.


Per their website, you can apply in between rounds if cannot meet the specific deadline. In which case, you won't need to wait until round 3 because of recommender.

Also, it's probably best to check wih admissions to see if you can submit on the 8th and recommender can submit afterward.

Just apply, ask your recommenders to rush. if they cant , talk to admissions and let them know to expect recommendation shortly after. Not a biggie

It should be a professional ID. I think they'd accept personal IDs only in exceptional cases (If someone has retired perhaps)

On Rotman's application, the essay question asks:
Please describe why you are pursuing an MBA? Why Rotman? Why now? (500 words)

But on Rotman's website, the essay question is:
Essay Question: When you reflect 10 years from now, how will you measure your MBA experience? (500 words)

Which one is it??!?

Where did you find this on the website and what year is posted above the question? The question that you have referenced is from previous applications. Answer what is on the application. And get it done!

Good luck!

The first one is this year's essay question.
The second one, I think, is for the previous year.

Hey there!

'If I remember correctly, they were very easy questions. Video questions were:

1. Tell us about a time when you faced an obstacle at work and how you faced that situation.
2. Any example of failure and what you learned out of that.

Written was: You want to invite some professor for a dinner party. Write an email to invite him/her.

All the best :)

Written question: Ask the Rotman ambassador a question to which you don't have the answer

Video 1: Tell us about a time you failed. What you learnt from it

Video 2: If you best friend were here, what would they tell me is the best part about being your best friend


Bonne chance!

The thread is always buzzing as we approach the deadlines!

As it is the second round deadline today, the thread was buzzing
with activity. Now, that it is done, I suppose things will slow down!

Btw, did you receive your application package?

Hey,
Isn't the deadline at the end of 8th Jan (00:00 Canadian time)? I believe today is the last day for submission.

Is the deadline at 0:00 EST January 8th? or is the deadline 11:59EST January 8th?
One of my references haven't submitted his recommendation. I'm panicking, can somebody please confirm.

No need to panic, its rolling admissions. Try to get them in asap. If recommendations are pending, reach out to admissions and let them know.
