Just had my interview with Chris Jones over Skype. It was a very cordial and to-the-point conversation. These were the questions asked:

1. Why MBA, short-term goals, why Rotman, why Canada?
2. Walk me through your resume, starting post-university
3. If you had to teach the Rotman class something - what would it be, what would the class look like?
4. Give an example of professional networking
5. How would you want to be remembered in Rotman once you graduate
6. What according to you is the biggest impact you have had on an organization
7. Tell me about a situation when you wanted something so bad, that you were unstoppable
8. If there was one question you wanted me to ask you, what would the question - and the answer - be
9. Any questions you have for them

All covered in exactly 30 minutes

I submitted my application on round 2 deadline day. Can I expect an interview invite if I haven't received one yet?

Are there any Indians who submitted their app around the same time and have got an interview invite?

A number of us are waiting. Assuming they are able to ascertain candidacy in about 1-2 weeks, interview invites can keep flowing out till mid-February. I have kinda lost hope though :/

I have emailed Rotman and sent another email to follow-up to ask for their perspective on their recent large drop in the Financial Times and received no reply. There has been nothing posted on their website and all references to any rankings has been removed. Has any applicant or current student heard their perspective? Below is my summary of the Financial Times rankings from a previous post.

Financial Times released their 2018 MBA rankings today. Rotman was ranked #1 in Canada for 11 consecutive years until this year when they dropped significantly in the rankings. For those interested the link is at: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolra ... nking-2018

There were three Canadian schools ranked: Ivey, McGill and Rotman. The following is a summary with some of the criteria important to me. What does everyone think of rankings and how they contribute to your choice of program? Should I be concerned about the drop in the Rotman rankings and what does it say about their program? I do not consider rankings the “be all and end all” in my decision. However, I have been including rankings in my research to help determine the best program for me.

McGill
Ranked 78 and #1 in Canada
Ranked #1 in Canada for: salary percentage increase; aims achieved (tied with Ivey); and career progress
Ranked 100 globally for career services

Rotman
Ranked 86 (down 21 spots from last year. The third largest decline of any school and the largest decline of any North American school)
Ranked top 10 globally in the world for faculty research
Ranked last (101 globally) for value for money
Ranked 92 globally for career services

Ivey
Ranked 90 (up 4 spots from last year)
Ranked #1 in Canada for weighted salary; career services (ranked top 50 globally at 32); aims achieved (tied with McGill), and value for money (ranked top 50 globally at 48).

Hi,

Is anyone still waiting for a reply on their application? Is this a general trend or is it just this year that the school seems overwhelmed with applications?

I applied with the round 2 deadline (8th Jan). still haven't heard back. Any advice on what should I make of this. I do know at least 4 more people in the same boat. So don't know what the scene is.

Anyone tried to get in touch with the school?

Hi ashikaverma13

My best bet will be to wait till the admission decision deadline(March 2nd, 2018)
Even in the first round, it took a lot of time for most of the candidates to receive
their interview invites/decision!

Hi , are you an admitted student? If you haven't been admitted, I think it's unwise to be emailing Rotman adcom for an explanation about this. If you have been admitted, that's a different story. Though, it's quite well known that the FT rankings are not reliable. McGill with it's 70-90 students in Quebec is no way better than Rotman with it's 350 students in Toronto.

Hi,

I have applied to Rotman in Round 2 (Jan 8), but haven't heard back from them yet. In how many days does one usually receive an interview call (if the school likes the application)?

Thank you!
