Wow! can you please give me some pointers? what were the heaviest deciding factors? I am also applying to schulich and was wondering how I would fare.[/quote]


Hi Enym,

If you see my profile, you will see my GMAT score is totally a disaster for any application. But still, i decided to apply for my 6 target colleges, one of it being Schulich.

However, i have not been notified on my strengths by Schulich but still on the basis of interviews and other discussion with ADCOMS, below are some bullet points which i think got me the offer and i am expecting scholarship too.

1) Very simple and straightforward essays - I did not play with words and kept the essay very simple. I wanted to tell my story to ADCOM and i feel i was successful in doing so. Remember, you do not need to be shakespeare to tell your story.

2) Mining Experience - I had specifically applied for global mining management specialisation and because i have 10 years of experience in mining with 5 years international experience, it worked for me. I am working for world number one steel producer and i can speak spanish, english and hindi. These were few positive points.

3) Communication skill - I had a brilliant video essay where i kept it normal and tried to be simple and straightforward mixing with humours and smiling all through video essay. In addition during my interview, the interview was in a very friendly manner. Again, i kept the same insticts, simple with humor. My answers, however were descritpive but in simple words, attracted the ADCOM.

4) Reason of low GMAT - I kept the reason for Low GMAT very clear in application and interview . My academics from college were good and my work nature proves that i have huge statsitical and verbal skill. This is why they believed my reason. I am into operation job which 24x7 demanding job and the ADCOM was aware of the responsibiltiies (They might have interacted same sort of people before, lucky me). I put it straightforward, the GMAt i have is what i can get raw. I have no time to prepare because of work nature.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for such a detailed and quick answer! It might be very silly of me to ask you, but where do we need a video essay? I do not see it anywhere in the application process!

Also the questions such as "How will the Schulich MBA degree help you achieve your short and long-term career goals" are very generic, I know why I want to do an MBA, but do you think I should include why my Academic background is non-traditional?

Just to let you know, I have a very non-traditional academic background with my post secondary degrees mostly being long distance through self study.[/quote]


Welcome.

Essay questions will be sent to you as soon as you submit your application and you get two weeks to complete it. Basically there are two questions they ask and record your response in. It is related to normal behavioural questions, nothing to worry. You should be straightforward and pleasant.

There is a thrid question in application which asks you to state anything which you want to tell to ADCOM. I believe you should detail anything which you think is the weekness in your application in the third question. It is not mandatory but you should use it.

I did my interview on Feb 2nd and received an offer on Feb 4th. I didn't realize the offer email was in my junk mail until now (I use hotmail). So if you are waiting for an offer letter, I think it is a good idea to check your junk mail periodically.

Same apples to me, i was interviewed on 28th January and got offer on 29th but the mail was in junk folder. Suggest all of you check junk mails too.

Just finished my Video Interview. A big thank you to Praveengeol and shyamnambiar . And a very very special thank you to mpehch . Without you guys I would have never mustered the courage to apply. I will not have any regrets if I fail to get in. This is the first ever high ranked university I have applied to and pretty much that was my goal. I hope that you guys have the best of times at your MBA's.

Thanks
