What is the procedure of submitting official transcripts?


It needs to be sent from your previous university to Rotman direclty and sealed. You can’t open it. They’ve mentioned the address so you need to give that to your university who will post it directly to that address.

Hello macaroni

Rotman will evaluate your candidature based on admission factors mentioned here
Now your GRE looks average, no doubt a 325+ will help compensate for your average past academic scores.
However with 2 years of experience you are on the lower side, so mention more around your career progress and achievements at work This will help you showcase your maturity compared to other applicants.
Your extracurricular activities look strong, though it will help more if you tell some good stories behind them more than just a laundry list.
Lastly and most importantly what are your career goals and why is an MBA an absolute necessity to reach these goals? This is the most important piece of the admissions puzzle. You could supplement your research on career goals by reading here.
Success will depend on what schools you shortlist and how well you tie the above in your written application.
Should you feel the need to discuss this further, let me know.

Hi macaroni,

Thanks for your query.

Considering you belong to the Indian applicant pool, as well as the fact that your experience is on the lower side, we strongly recommend that you retake the GRE and look for a score around 325. Of course, the higher the score, the better it will be.

It goes without saying that you have fine extra-curricular activities and these will give you some extra talking points in your essays. However, the most crucial part or the career goals are missing and your chances will depend on the same to a large extent. Your essays must focus on a logical set of career goals that sync in with your existing profile. Moreover, you will also need to focus on why you need the MBA and how the same will be a step forward in the right direction.

If you are able to boost your GRE score, as well as put forth a set of well-crafted essays, you will have a strong chance.

Good Luck!

Hi macaroni

Wow, that's a lot of awards. Congratulations on your hard work for all of these. Here is our assessment:
- Your experience at EY and your work with Mentored Research is excellent, and will give you an edge.
- That said, you are coming in from an Indian IT background, and that will put you into a very competitive pool. While a GRE score of 318 is decent, would encourage you to raise this by 5-7 points more, to be more competitive. You should try and raise this a bit before applying to Rotman.
- You have some good innovation experience (the ones for which you got the Extra Miler and Spot awards, and won the Process Improvement Challenge) and some leadership experience (IEEE-AIT) that you should look to leverage. Keep in mind, though, that recognitions such as the CBSE Merit Certificate, or the Oral Presentation in Lucknow, and the ODF competition are now dated (almost a decade old), so they will have less value. Focus on quality over quantity in your applications.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.
