Yeah. Guess it's a waiting game.

I have too not received an interview invite yet..can you elaborate a bit more on your profile? Also which other schools have you applied?

Looks like i am the only one who got dinged in R2. It was totally not expected as i have received admits with scholarships from colleges at same level.

When i had connected with adcom earlier they were quite impressed with my profile.

I had submitted the application on 13th Jan, and got the ding on 22nd Jan.

I also know someone who had submitted their application in august 2019 for early bird and he still has not received a response.

No idea what is happening there. I remember last year something similar had happened.

You said you submitted on Jan 18. The deadline for R2 was Jan 13, so I think you will be considered an R3 applicant.
Considering many R2 applicants haven't heard back, I think you shouldn't be worried. There is still plenty of time for you to receive an interview invite. FYI, R3 decision date is May 3rd.

It's not really about how good you are. It's about how good your profile is relative to the Class.

Imagine you're in a group of five students. You all have amazing, but identical, work experience and educational backgrounds. You have a 750 GMAT. But the other four have a 780 GMAT. You're going to get dinged.

But that's an extreme hypothetical. Point is, it's not all about your profile in a vacuum. You have to think of the Class as a whole, because Rotman pushes for diversity, not just in gender, sex, race, etc., but also in work experience and educational background.

By the way, I'm a Rotman FT-MBA graduate, Class of 2016. Been a few years since then, but I have a little time now to hang around here a little bit. Happy to answer any questions you guys have about the admissions process, classes, coursework, job hunting, etc., related to Rotman.

Does anyone know how long it usually takes to receive an admit/deny after the interview?

About one to two weeks for the phone call. Longer for the admission package, and that depends on where you live.

I got my phone call in about ten days, and the admission package about two weeks or three weeks after that if I remember correctly, and I'm in Toronto.

Hi Guys,

Just got the email that I have been accepted :) I wanted to know if Rotman lets us know about scholarship in the same email or does that come later? This email includes that I have been admitted, payment of the $5k deposit and sending my transcripts.

Congrats! I believe entrance scholarships and fellowships are awarded with offer of admission. But maybe someone who got admitted with scholarship this year can confirm. Good luck!

Hey man, happy that you're here.
I've gotten into the JD/MBA program, but I'm a bit concerned about Rotman's ranking drop among MBA rankings (e.g., global 40s to 80s in the Financial Times list). From what I've read online, it's partially due to (1) international post-MBA wages being inflated in developing countries thanks to their use of PPP; (2) a declining Canadian market and currency value; and (3) increased funding in some international schools, so their top applicants prefer staying in their home countries.

But have there been any other changes to Rotman over the last 5 years to cause such a collapse in reputation? Changes in teaching style, loss of endorsements/connections, less impressive innovative features, etc?

Thanks

Oh, trust me, I'm concerned about that too. Part of my profile is that I'm a Rotman MBA, and if the reputation of my alma mater takes a dive then that's not great for me.

The market factors you listed definitely contributed, and that's not something Rotman can control. I don't think the teaching style has changed (I haven't audited any courses since graduating, so I can't tell).

There are two differences that I can think of at this moment. The first is the Dean. We had Roger Martin, who is one of the thought leaders in the world, and under his leadership Rotman shot up the rankings. Then Tiff Maklem came in, and we started going down. He's a good guy, but I just don't think he's that innovative of a leader, definitely not a world renowned thought leader, so that might affect the rankings.

The second is that I believe the Rotman School has added a lot of new programs, taking resources away from the MBA. Class size has actually decreased this year because of this, and they've decreased first-year classes from five to four.

TL;DR reasons why I think Rotman rankings went down other than market factors: (1) reputation of the Dean and (2) stretching of Rotman School resources by adding a lot of non-MBA programs.
