Hi

I wish to attend Rotman School of business. I have extensive management experience as well as technical and I ran my own personal business in the past, but i've been out of school for a long time and writing the GMAT's is a bit scary for me. I wanted to know how much do I need to score on my GMAT in order to be considered as a potential candidate for Rotman school of Business.

Thank you

You should aim for about average score... so look up the average score for the schools you are targeting and that's your goal :roll:

Hi Faraz,

You should aim for a score in the range that we typically admit candidates at which you can see here:
https://www.rotman.utoronto.ca/Degrees/ ... ofile.aspx

Note that the reason why there is a range at which we admit students is because we weigh all components of a candidate’s profile equally. So for example, a not-so-high GMAT score can be offset by a strong GPA, work experience, etc.

Conversely, if someone has an exceptional GMAT score but not-so-great GPA, work experience, etc, they might have a more difficult time getting admission.

Hope that makes sense!

I just want to echo Michael's comments from the perspective of a student. They do look at your application holistically; I know colleagues who are in the program with GMAT scores that are less than the average, but they are spectacular students - super smart and super motivated. I also know people who had high 700 GMAT scores that didn't get in. The GMAT score really is just a fifth of your application (the other fifths being: undergraduate GPA, essays, work experience, and the admissions interview).

That being said, you also have to consider the industry you wish to enter for your summer internship and full-time recruiting. Some industries care about GMAT scores; for example in consulting, it is difficult (not impossible) to get an internship with a sub-700 GMAT. You would need a high GPA and great pre-MBA work experience to offset it (and do a lot of networking). I think the other industries care much less about GMAT, although I'm not 100% on this.

So aim high! If you need advice with GMAT preparation, feel free to send me a PM. If you want more accurate information on GMAT scores, feel free to contact the admissions office: mba@rotman.utoronto.ca

Hello manojsundar1,

We weigh every component of each candidate's profile equally. So for example, even if a candidate has a perfect GMAT but not-so-great work experience, we might not admit them. Conversely another candidate might not have a great GPA but incredible work experience, strong GMAT, etc. That can offset a component of the application that might not be as strong. The point is, we weigh everything equally. For additional insight I'd recommend getting in touch with us at mba@rotman.utoronto.ca.

**IMPORTANT** Please note that for the most accurate and up-to-date insight on how to maximize your chances at admissions, I would recommend following the members of the Rotman Recruitment and Admissions team. I realize though, that the anonymity of web forums makes it difficult sometimes to tell who is who. However, us members of the Recruitment & Admissions team will always have our full contact information in the footer of each of our posts indicating that we are us. :-)

Thanx a lot for the information.. However I am currently reviewing my options in B school... I have a GMAT score of 700 (CGPA of 9.5) and above 85% in all my boards.. Also I have been working for quite sometime in a NGO. My work experience is 4 years 2.5 years in a Indian Manufacturing company (Tata Group) and 1.5 years in an engineering consultancy firm. Do I have a fair chance in Rotman considering an above average essay.
