From my personal experience and from what I found on this forum, the interview is just an extended conversation. It is very relaxed with basic behavioral questions to begin with. I was asked the usual Why MBA, Why Rotman, How did you hear about Rotman, How will you contribute to the class etc. etc. Very basic stuff. My interviewer made sure that it was more of a discussion so one question led to another. For e.g. the Why MBA question, we had a chat about my goals, my hobbies etc. I wasn't asked any typical 'Tell about a situation when...' question. But you can expect questions around your leadership/extracurriculars/community service experiences.

In addition to these resume based discussions, she asked me a couple of questions that I knew were asked in a few other interviews as well. Things like, Teach me something (anything that you like) in 2 minutes. If there was one question you wanted me to ask you, what would it be and answer it yourself. Also, what will be your legacy at Rotman has been a common interview question this year. She didn't ask me this as I kind of had already answered that in the 'How will you contribute to the class' question.

Again, the interview is very chill and interviewers make an effort to ease you into a conversation. Just know your resume and a few stories around your experiences well. Also, make sure to ask meaningful questions when asked to do so.

Good Luck!

Hi guys,
I submitted the application on 8th January. It still shows in the supplemental items that the transcript is not received. The transcript was delivered to the school on 5th of January. I emailed the school asking them about this but there was no response. Does this happen? Shall I email again? Will they review my application before it shows in the portal that the transcript is received?

cubs - I don't think its an issue, as long as you submitted the scanned copy while submitting the application, you should be ok.
I had the same status and had emailed them asking if my application was complete. it was a delayed response but they confirmed that they will reach out in case they need additional docs.

Guys,

I have a 3 year degree in undergrad from India and scored only 53%. Now this is what the website says
INDIA
Master's Minimum Admission Requirements:

Bachelor's Degree Equivalent: Completion of BOTH a Bachelor`s (three-year) degree and a Master`s OR A Bachelor`s degree requiring four years of study (e.g. BPharm, MBBS, BDS, BTech, BEng, or BArch)

Mid-B Equivalent: 1st Class or 1st Div.; 7.5/10 from Indian Institutes of Technology; 8.0/10 from other institutions

Does this mean that I can't apply? Any 3 year degree holders from India? Also, what about the score requirement of 1st class etc?

Hi,

Does the school send a confirmation mail or application complete email once the application is submitted? I only received the application fee submission email and nothing else. Although the portal shows that my application is complete. Just curious

Hi KS15

From what we heard from some of the past admits/current students
this is not a hard requirement. In the Rotman Chat(conducted in August)
with the current students, one of the students had a 2.34 as his GPA but
secured an admit. So if you think your profile stands a chance, give it a
shot!

Hope this helps!

Even I did not receive any confirmation mail. However, I confirmed with an ad-com member that my application is under review. No worries if you have not received 'application submission' mail.

I would like to share another information - some people have already shared the same in this forum. I confirmed with an ad-com member that an applicant needs not to submit official transcript till the offer has been made. Scanned copy of the transcript solves the purpose.
