Hi All, I submitted my application on December 18th, just curious if anyone who submitted around the same date or in December has heard back from the adcom.

Hi,

Can anyone share some the questions as part of the Kira interview? I will be submitting my application tomorrow for R2 and just the video essays are left.

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.

You can afford to relax. Rotman admissions are on a rolling basis and deadlines are only indicative. The school thinks deadlines help applicants schedule.

There's no hard stop and your application is still good to go, today, tomorrow or day after.

Hope this helps.

One thing i would like to add, do not panic and do something stupid.
I know its stressful , but last thing you want is messing up your chances even before full application is submitted.
Send them an email concise and clear and ask for advise politely.

Hello,

Does the supplemental list also needs to complete for the application to be considered complete?

I have only submitted the unofficial transcript and one of my recommendor is yet to submit his response. Other than that my application status shows submitted but the supplemental shows only 3/5 required documents submitted.

Does the evaluation start only after the recommendations are also in?

Just submitted. Had to re-record both video interview questions as my internet connection gave up while saving the responses.
