Hi,

When they say transcripts, does one need to upload all semester marksheets pdf + degree pdf , or only the degree pdf ?

Secondly, is a PR application a pre-requisite to apply ?

Thanks,

Hi there everyone.

@David:Congrats on the admit, seems you are the 1st admit(probably in the cohort).

I had my interview 2 weeks back and eagerly waiting for the result.

Anyone in the same boat as me???


Thanks... and close to it. When I received the call from Ivey, I was told that I was the second person to be admitted.

I would guess that the committee is dealing with a large volume of applications at the moment, given that the Round 1 deadline is approaching. Best of luck with your decision.

Hi,

I took the video essays today and I think I didn't perform that good. The questions were normal though. Does anyone know what weight this component carries?


My guess is that the video essays would be significantly less important than other factors (WE, GMAT, GPA, leadership experience, career goals, etc). What I can say for certain is that Ivey looks at applications holistically, and a single weakness in your application will not cost you admission if they see you as a good fit for the program.

Using myself as an example, I have a horrible undergraduate academic profile. But I also have a good leadership experience, a decent GMAT, a very compelling reason for doing an MBA, and exceptional work experience. During my interview, I was never even questioned about my poor previous academic performance (although I was extremely fortunate in that the second essay question was perfectly suited to addressing my undergraduate experience).

In short, if you are confident in the rest of your profile, I wouldn't be too worried. I don't think that the video essays will make or break your application.

Well the questions are very generic and with a simple google you may find samples. Also I suppose Ivey will give you a trial run question to warm you up. I recommend practising a lot so that you get comfortable with recording yourself on video. Make sure you dress business formals and that your body language is good. Also, enunciate and articulate your thoughts in an organised manner. Good Luck.

Well I can't seem to submit my application. For some reason I can't fill in the video essay completion date even though I finished the video essays. Anyone have a similar problem?

I had the same issue. This is what worked for me.

Scroll to the bottom of the video essay page on your Ivey application and click "Next Page" or "Next" (whatever it says). This should automatically fill in the box with the date that you completed the essays.

Best of luck.

Reposting here a post made by previous Ivey applicant summarising his/her opinions on Ivey's MBA program. For complete discussion visit this thread.. https://gmatclub.com/forum/all-about-ri ... 48594.html

As much as I am inclined to Ivey 1 year intensive MBA program, for my research details I gathered, as below, I also have some unexplored fronts which needs specific and further detailing.

Going past the admission criteria, which reveals an average GMAT score of 713 and above added to strong GPA of 3.31, this school is rated highly in Canada for valid reasons as below:

1. Its curriculum is mostly CASE STUDY focused, unusually high and unique.
2. Also it focuses on CROSS ENTERPRISE LEADERSHIP - very effective approach well tailored in 1 year curriculum
3. Course is of 1 year - most suited for people like me, who does not fall in the usual age and experience requirement column of MBA applicants
4. Its ALUMNI networking outperforms most Canadian business schools - (not sure about top US schools)
5. Its class size varies between 130 - 165, comparatively smaller (Queen's is least) - something of importance to me
6. On an average about 59% students get scholarships - very important for me, since I have to self fund my education
7. London, from what I found, is comparatively cheaper in terms of expenses, unlike Toronto (I am also considering UT for application)
8. Very strong in IBanking/Consulting - following employment reports, almost 25% accounts for Financial and Consulting placements
9. Lead areas of specialization, Entrepreneurship, General Management, Leadership and Finance (here is a catch, as per reports, UT has outperformed UWO in many areas, Strategy I mention in particular)
10. Career Management - very focused group that is in action right from the beginning (of all things, I must also aim for good placement)
11. Opportunity cost works out well (at least for me)
12. Scholarships vary between 10% - 50% averaging close to 30% of tuition fees annual. Though instances of full scholarships are there, very rare.

Counter to above, some facts which itches me are:

1. Well knit 1 year program, no internship - will this affect my networking
2. Toronto - still remains the business hub
3. The ranking, I referred to many, FT is of importance here, has slipped over past 2-3 years (major) - reasons attributing to these?
4. Canadian rating has also slipped
5. International B school rating has also slipped
6. Travel/ Leisure/ Hospitality overall placements - worldwide accounts for 1 % or less, it will affect me directly

As much as RATING is not the only criteria to decide on Business School, yet it is of interest and importance to know underlying reasons.


All comments are welcome....

Hi All, I had my interview last week 4/5/2017. Eagerly waiting for the results. Any idea how much time does it take the adcom to give the decision? I was told 3-4 weeks but I talked to some people who were admitted and they heard back in ~4 days.

Hi KbSHarma,

The only slots available were 17 May and 31 May, so I selected 17 May. Is there an option to prepone it? Have you got an interview invite?

Sorry, could not find how to reply to an existing post. So posting a new comment.

finally had the interview application submitted on 20 march. The ivey changed the dates from 5 to 20 April due to a glitch in the system. The interview lasted for 35 min approx.
The interviewer was Amanda career management officer. the connection at ivey was not good and I had to speak up at the webcam and take pauses as she was cutting me out through answers.
The questions were tricky although she said the interview was not to trick me. Introduce yourself, why I started this particular business, example of innovation, mistakes in the past, why mba at this point of profession, how are the admission decisions from other schools going on ( I told her it was in process and ivey was my preferred choice), if not accepted to mba then what, 3 qualities that admissions committee would have you stand out, 3 qualities that i possess related to leadership ( I gave 3 and she asked example of one them in real life experience), example of conflict with team member in past setting and how I resolved it. My biggest weakness and how i overcome it, what feedback I received from my supervisor/ peer etc and what I learned from it. My short term and long term goals and the bridge between them. List of companies that I would like to work for in Canada. She asked what was the most negative thing about Ivey (this question preplexed me as I was not expecting this).
For my questions I asked her what are various restaurants, activities in London, clubs, accomodations, companies of interest at campus etc.
One of the most challenging interviews so far. The interviewer kept on pressing on my negatives.
She said to expect the decision in 3-4 weeks time.
Any body has any other experience or was is it just me????

Well, don't generalise as i had my interview in 3rd week of March and still pending result(mostly due to huge influx of applications for Round 1), so relax and chill till the results come back. Expect to get the result within a fortnight, as i was mailed by them that admissions committee is not meeting as scheduled, which is resulting in delays(again due to huge number of applications).

Hi,

Just be yourself, expect the interviewer to have gone through your application(including essays), so collaborate your answers accordingly. Also expect standard questions like Why MBA, why Ivey, strengths, weaknesses, future goals, etc. Also expect to go in detail related to your experiences and have suitable examples and logic of why you did the way you did specific things(for eg, i was asked how i felt when i was transferred to a 'not so good' place in my organization for my honesty, what got me through that period, etc. which was mentioned in one of my essays).

In the end, just be yourself, it is not going to be a stress interview but surely a detailed interview.
Best of luck for the interview.
