Hi Guys, just finished my interview. Interviewer was Katerina. She asked a loooot of questions. Stated with usual, most were new and specific. She was taking notes continuously. Interview went well according to me. I was able to communicate everything I wanted to. A few fumbles here and there and hiccups in one of the questions, apart from that it was good. *Fingers Crossed* God Bless! :)

Hi,

I would say your best shot would be in R1 or max. R2.

Till then I would suggest you to improve other aspect of your application and definitely retake GMAT.

All the best!

All,

Has anyone got the following sort of reply/request from Sauder Administration:

"1. TOEFL/IELTS/PTE/MELAB to be written. In order for us to waive your English exam requirement, please note that your transcript/degree certificate must indicate English was used as the medium of instruction. Or, you would have to request the University Registrar of your school to send an official letter stating that the above is true. "

A quick response is really appreciated.

Regards,
Rohit

If you have an Uncle with a PR in Canada and is ready to be a co-signor, you should be better approaching the Canadian banks for a student line of credit instead of Prodigy. The rates of Prodigy are much higher than the Canadian banks, who would probably give it to you at 3.25-3.5% I think.
Prodigy will only finance if you do not go with another debt based funding, which means you cannot get another loan if you are going with Prodigy.

Regards,
Vijay G

I think you can as long as the co-signor has a PR. Please call Scotiabank or Bank of Montreal and enquire about it.
Study permit won't be affected in any way, don't understand why you'd think so.
Location of co-signor in Canada will be irrelevant, so yes, he should be able to sign for you, don't see any problems there.

Congrats!

Could you please share your profile and application timeline?

On your WP question, if you have studied Masters from a reputed University in Canada, you are then eligible for 1-3 years of work permit. It depends on the discretion of your Visa Application Coordinator.

I met the adcom people when they toured India last year. They said you will likely get WP of 16 months only with it.

Nice! Congratulations! Can you share your applicant profile dekiruzooo?

I am still waiting to hear about a decision. I was told that the admissions committee just met yesterday.

I received an email today asking to do a 2nd interview at the request of the Admissions Committee to discuss my career goals and reasons for doing an MBA at this point.

Has anyone else had to do a 2nd interview with Sauder? How did it go? What was it like? I wasn't expecting to do a 2nd interview, which I guess in a way is good because I am not out of the running, but on the other hand, these were topics discussed in my 1st interview and it sounds like maybe they think that my career goals might not be a good fit with the program and school? Or perhaps they are not convinced that I should be doing an MBA at this point in my life. Not really sure what to think.

Hey guys.. Please share with us the career prospects for NON-IT background admits in Vancouver,if anyone has any idea.. Further, Sauder doesn't provide a comprehensive employment report... companies listed in the website are also very few compared to other reputed universities of Canada...So what are your expectations from the MBA program?
