The issue with French IMO is not if you can land a job. You will with an MBA from McGill for sure. What one needs to keep in mind is that French is a must to make a career.

Retook the GMAT for the second time today . I was scoring in my mocks the range of 600-650 , but was shocked today with a 550 !!!!!! Jonathan had encouraged me to apply after my first attempt (540) but told me I needed a minimum score of 600. Meanwhile , he told me that as a PR of Canada I have till the end of May to submit my official score. Thus , I will book a third appointment after one month from now , but to catch the application deadline (May 1st) is it possible to apply indicating my prospective booked date instead of my current score ? I intend to work on the test and the application simultaneously .

Thanks in advance . :)


Do you believe this plan would work?


You might want to ask Jonathan about that


Thank you for the advice , temoud . I contacted Jonathan and he confirmed it can work that way . The problem now is that the nearest GMAT appointment available is the 20th of May !!! Which means that the official score will not , most probably , reach them by the end of May.Nevertheless , I will apply and when , hopefully , I revenge with a good score I will fax to Jonathan the unofficial score until receiving the official one .I believe if they found the overall application good and eventually backed up with a GMAT success story at last , they might forgive a few days of obligatory delay.Anyway , I will not throw my gun till he end of he battle :)

I could write a book on this issue, especially with everything going on with the OQLF these days. The short version is: yes, you need some French to be successful at your job here in Montreal (you'll be seen as an outsider, otherwise). Although, depending on the recruiter and company, I do believe you could come to Montreal with little to no French speaking ability, get a job and pick up the language as you go.

I just completed my interview with Jonathan, was asked typical questions such as Why Mcgill, Why Montreal, Career walk through, how are you as a person (outside your professional life), etc.

Mcgill is my first choice school, hope to get a positive reply in next 2 to 3 weeks.

Does anyone know if Mcgill has a loan program for international students (without cosigner or with international bank guarantee)


Its been 3 weeks since my interview, I am now waiting for that final email.

Are final decisions released on any particular day of the week?

I don't think there's any particular day in which decisions are rendered. But hang in there, i'm sure you'll get the final decision soon enough.

Devilsconviction,

Could you share a bit more about your profile? Where are you applying from and why are you doing an MBA?

As far as I know, McGill used to offer TA positions to students within the engineering department. Therefore I am almost certain that Desautels offers that as well.

Hope this helps !

Woah! The school has had an average class size of 65-70 students for the past few years and the FB group already has 72 members! Does that mean that Desautels in done with selecting its class for this year?

No, it means that a lot of current students are part of the group as well. I think we're about 60% done with selection at this point.

Going by simple mathematics, 55% of the class is from outside Canada (March 15th deadline), so we can safely assume this would be almost completely full by now (or would be full in another week or so). Also, even if we consider only 50% of Canadian enrolments till today, that makes almost 75 to 80% of the Class being enrolled.

Where did they mention that 55% of the students are from outside Canada ??? This is a brand new info to me .

By the way I am writing my essay at the moment .... do I have to submit as a pdf file or MS word document ? and what is the ideal format ?? I am writing the prompt and writing my response just under it . Is this OK?

Thanks in advance :)
