Applied on January 4th - got my invitation for interview today. Politely declined, having accepted an offer from Ivey as they were on top of my application from the get go. Rotman never gave me the personal touch or seemed interested in my application at all.

Having said that, I'm sure they're a wonderful school, but their recruitment process does need a lot of work.

The only reason it took them this "long" was because I told the Ad Com that I had a decision to make by February 8. They scheduled the interview for February 7 (yesterday), having told me that I was selected for the interview on February 4th. They will make sure they meet their March deadline for January round applicants, but other than that don't hold your breath.

kungfury I hope that it's in your best interest to attend Ivey as opposed to Rotman, and that you're not making this decision purely from how they treated you through the recruitment process. That will not be very long lasting. A few years ago I worked with a candidate who had pretty bad test scores and a low GPA, so it was a bit of a miracle when he was accepted to Cornell, on top of several other lower-ranked schools. His experience visiting the school at Cornell was so horrible he was dead set on going to Rochester or Boston U. Kind of talked him off the ledge and now he's a student ambassador at Cornell and could not be more enthusiastic about the place.

There were a lot of reasons, but the main one was the 1 year program and the case methodology of teaching. The choice between the two would've been based on the career prospects afterwards, but the straw that broke the back was the impersonal approach.

I see. Well I am a big fan of the case method, I got one million percent more out of case-based classes myself. For some, a one-year program makes sense.
Good luck at Ivey!

Especially for Asian/Indian candidates.

No there isn’t any particular day. I got mine within 10 days of submitting the application.

Me neither. From what I understand if we haven't got it by this week then brace yourself for possible bad news

Surprised I wasn't invited to interview. I guess the school has received a lot of high-quality applicants this year. [#permalink]
