Congrats VDC!! On the other hand I think we can safely start assuming the end of R1 interview invites? Anyone here got an invite in the last two weeks?

I wouldn't go that far. Chris told me during the interview there is a great increase in the volumes of applications. Please don't assume anything unless told otherwise.

Yeah I met Chris once on Skype and very shortly after face to face in New Delhi. It helped I guess, my interview went pretty smooth coz of this ice breaking.

That's great Vijay!

Rotman must have really liked your profile as all R1 decisions are yet not out and you've got an admit even after technically applying in R2. How much scholarship did you get?

Got an interview invite today (Indian Applicant). Applied on 1st Oct. Planning to schedule the Skype interview around 18th.

So, I’m guessing the other Indian applicants shouldn’t lose hope as they’re still rolling out interview invites.

Hi All,

Please see below a debrief for the entire Rotman application experience:

1) My profile: 7.5 years of work ex in corporate finance with majority in boutique IB firm in M&A consulting. I have worked on a few medium ticket size M&A transactions for international companies. CFA Charterholder. GMAT 710.
2) Spike factors: My advice on spike factors for people writing the essays is to keep them as personal as possible. Although the application does not explicitly state that spike factors gotta be personal but an interview will give you plenty of time to talk about your goals. If you can ? you can connect the spike factors with a goal in a very subtle but logical way in one of the spike factors
3)Interview: As I mentioned in one of the posts, I had an opportunity to meet Chris twice before the interview - Once over Skype Early September and next face to face in mid September in New Delhi. I guess this helped a lot in creating a basic foundation of comfort before the interview. Interview is very conversational in nature just like every other B-school interview. Interview is divided in to 4 parts - Introduction, Interview, Questions for Interviewer, and Next Steps. Get your basic stories very tight such as Why MBA ? Why Now ? Why Rotman ? and Why Canada ? you will be surprised that a lot of your interview prep will be through these 3-4 questions. Chris was picking his questions for me from my answers itself. See below a comprehensive list of questions. Keep a personal and professional instance ready for all of these situations. An interview last for 30 - 40 mins. Mine lasted for 55 mins coz I'm particularly loquacious. Remember it is your interview and you're the one in charge of guiding through it:

Introduction - Run me through your resume after under-grad. Keep it succinct and be sure to include personal anecdotes here (special note to my fellow Indians). Duration 5 - 7 minutes

Interview -
1) Leadership
2) An examples of networking (perhaps only professional)
3) 3 pillars of leadership (discuss any 2)
4) Failure, how did you cope up with it, and what did it teach you
5) ST/LT Goals
6) Plan B
Refer to previous year's forums for more questions, I might have forgotten a few. But choose your words very carefully. Write you answers well and practice them during a mock with a friend/s. Once last thing, it is good to know your story at the back of your hand but remember you don't have to sound robotic (again as advice to my fellow Indian, it is okay to stammer and be like "um" as conversational fillers). If you wanna think about something tell the interviewer can i take 5 secs ? but be sure to not take more to avoid awkwardness.

Questions for Interviewer - Don't just ask for the heck. Ask real questions to which you want answers. Interviewers have been doing it for a while and they'll know when you're being fake. My advice ? Ask people their life experiences people love to talk about their experiences

Next Steps - I dont have any inputs here...Interviewer will guide you on this perfectly dont worry..

Final few words - Be confident, Be real, and take charge of your interview (but not in a cocky way). Lets get that admit. I'm sure all the serious applicants must have connected with MBA students for getting to know Rotman better. It might be a good idea to refer to those students in your interview, but remember name dropping is like good scotch only good in a limited.

Best,
VDC

Hello everyone! I was a R1 applicant to Rotman and received my offer on 1 Nov. Though I am not new to GMAT Club as a voracious reader of the posts found here, I am totally new to posting in GMAT Club and this is my first post! Cheers~

In my case, the early announcement came as a surprise as I was told that the decision will take up to 3 weeks. The slight disadvantage for getting an early announcement is that the deposit is due before the results of the other business schools are released (the deposit is due in 30 days and the results of the other business schools are traditionally released just before Christmas).
