I think you'll need to build on your work experience to have a shot at getting into Rotman. Have you started the CFA?

Sorry I think I might not be so clear, I have in total 3.5 years working experience, 2.5 in CIBC, 1 in SF. OUT of 2.5 yr for cibc, 1 year as manager

No I have not but I definitely will. I attended the exam once when I was last year student but miserably failed (didn't know it would take so many hours while I was studying and part timing plus CFA level 1, how stupid I was lol).

BTW I am looking at sauder part time MBA.

You could have a decent chance at all 3 (full-time options). With a decent app, you would also be a great fit for the part-time program. The undergrad GPA is a bit of a downer but the GMAT is decent enough to pull you up.

Thank you very much, that is actually a good relief. I was extremely worried about the undergrad score.

I just gave UBC a call, unfortunately the recruiter is away but the front desk lady told me that Part-time does not offer scholarship at all and no Coop program, so I guess I will stick with full time MBA for next year.

Sounds very good. You should be a good candidate for the Sauder full-time MBA program. Try and apply in the earlier rounds (R1 if possible).

Rotman requires a minimum of a 3.3 GPA in your final year of your undergraduate degree. Also, retail banking experience isn't regarded very highly by Rotman adcom. Applications are up almost 45% over the last two years, so it is a lot more competitive than it used to be. That being said, as long as you spin your story right, you do stand a chance.

Hi Shubham,

Your stats are well in place, but your work experience is on the lower side. I'd recommend you wait for another year and build up your professional experiences. If by chance you still apply this year, what will make a real difference is the 1. quality of your professional experiences; 2. your career progression and future goals; 3. the execution of your application. SUbmitting compelling applications will be supremely important. Competition is tough for the CAnadian programs this year as a large number of Indians are considering these over American MBA programs.

Hi,

Does analytical writing score of 4 which is below the 50 percentile benchmark for ubc sauder school of business affect my profile.

Will IR and AWA score matter?!

Thanks,
Varthini
