How long does it usually take for the admission committee to review and let one know if he/she is invited for a skype/one-on-one interview ?

Prasooon The online interview portion was not very stressful. Once you make an account, you'll watch a quick summary video that explains what'll happen.

First is a quick writing component - 10 minutes to answer some basic question pertaining to drafting an e-mail in a business setting. The example they give online is "Draft a follow-up e-mail to your admissions officer explaining your enthusiasm for Rotman". I think they just want to make sure that you understand what is appropriate, as opposed to making it a creative writing component.

The video interview portion (2 questions) is also very relaxed. Just be honest and coherent and you should be fine. You see the question, have a bit of prep time (maybe 20 or 30 seconds), and then you record your 30-60 second answer. I only have a sample size of 2 questions, but I suspect they're all similar, "get to know you" questions. For example:

- "What is your favourite X and why?" (e.g. book, movie, musician, role model, hobbie, etc.)
- Something situational, like "Describe a situation where you did Y? What did you learn?"
- Perhaps a classic "who would you want to have dinner with?" type of question. Just speculation.

I would recommend recording yourself answering a simple question on your phone or computer beforehand to see what you look like talking to nothing. The "hardest" part, I suppose, is getting accustomed to the set-up, rather than the questions themselves. They're not designed to trip you up at all.

TLDR: Not a big deal. Have fun with it! Hope that helped a bit :)

Good luck.
This is a brilliant description. It'll help immensely if other people on the group can also share their experiences!

Prob depends when you apply, since it's rolling admissions. I applied a few weeks ago and got an interview offer within a few days, but since there's a big deadline on Oct. 1, I imagine they'll be hit with a ton of applications at once. From reading prior threads, it seems like the average wait time was a few weeks.

Hello everyone,

Have just submitted my application a few hours ago. While my profile pages does display my application to be 'submitted', I have not received any official email(even generic/automated) from the school about completion of application. Just wanted advice on whether this is this normal or whether I should get in touch with adcom with regard to the receipt of the application?

Thanks everyone,
Sanket

Nope they don't. If your supplementary items are at 5/6 you're good! I dropped an email to check whether they'd received all the materials. i got a confirmation on that immediately. I had submitted mine around first week of September.

Hi,

Need few inputs regarding the application:

1. Video Essays: practice and final video have to be done in one shoot or we can have separate sittings for the two?

2. GMAT: Official GMAT scores have to be sent at the time of application or once the admission is confirmed?

3. GPA: Are Indian candidates with CGPA less than 7.5 eligible to apply?

Will greatly help if someone can guide through.

1. Video questions and the written component have to be done in one sitting. You can practive the video question as many times as you want. But once you choose to take the final test, you can't pause. Check out the link for the KIRA platform given on your application, you'll understand.
2. I'm assuming it has to be sent before the admissions confirmation. your original transcripts can be sent, once admission is confirmed. Please check the guidelines for GMAT score. I'm not 100% sure.
3. Not sure, but the adcom looks at your candidature considering all elements. If you're able to compensate poor acads through any other component(good work exp, exceptional extra curriculars etc) you would be considered.

Hope this clarifies to some extent! Good luck!

Official GMAT score need not be sent till admission is confirmed - official sources.

Hey umangj838

You can hear anytime before December 15th. Though the regular committed time is around 6-8 weeks,
sometimes, due to huge surge in the application volumes(which happens during the deadlines), it may
take longer. However, it is very unlikely that they will push beyond the 15 December notification deadline.

All the best with your application :)

End of day Canada standard time. They are 5 hours behind GMT. SO there are still 14 hours left for deadline.

Sorry GoodGuy - should have been more careful. All the best with your application.

But this mistake of mine must have at least woken a few people from their slumber :)

Just submitted my application.
My video essay questions were:
1) the last book you read
2) what would you rather be a writer, a painter or a music composer
3) write a letter to your professor asking him his time to meet

Felt comfortable answering all three. The practice sessions indeed helped a lot getting adjusted to the technology!

Fingers crossed now!
