Hey guys!

Realized that there wasn't a thread for the 2021 intake for the full-time Ivey MBA program. Submitted my application on the 5th of January 2020. R1 Deadline was Jan 6th.

Sharing future deadlines for the others:

Application Round Deadline
Round 1 January 6, 2020
Round 2 April 6, 2020
Round 3 July 13, 2020
Round 4* September 21, 2020
Round 5 November 9, 2020
Round 6 January 4, 2021

Sharing my feedback on the application process:

  • Video Essay - Pretty straightforward. You have unlimited attempts at the practice questions. You get 2 questions randomly out of a pool of about 150 questions. My questions were - "What is the one thing about yourself that you haven't shared with us in the application" and "What would you do if a team member stopped responding to your calls? How would you respond to that?"
  • The written essays seemed simple but it is a challenge to crisp this out to 250 words. You'll really know how little 250 words is, when you're writing this.
  • If you've done your schooling and under graduation in English - PLEASE WRITE THE ELPT NOTE. I've seen many folks writing IELTS Academic/TOEFL for this. You don't have to if you can convince them that English has been your mode of communication during both academia and professional journies.


Would love to hear about interview invites/dates etc from the others applying for this intake.

Well, as you say, they accept students on a rolling basis, which means they will not wait until the deadline of the applications to review the students' profile. As far as I know, they are very fast at evaluating the candidates and feedbacking.

Hey Adityan92!

You're right. They do review this on a rolling admission basis. Nope, haven't heard back from them yet. Generally, they do respond within 2 weeks. But the R1 deadline for 2021, was also the R6 deadline for 2020. I presume that's the cause of the delay. They're probably chockablock with applications right now.

And for the question about folks from the college, yes! Lindsay Lippmann from the Admissions & Recruitment team. In fact, I met her when she was in Bangalore. The Ivey team is very warm and open. Go ahead and drop them a note as well if you'd like. Been in touch with JD Clarke as well - the Executive Director of Admissions too. Apart from this, be in touch with quite a few alums as well for their feedback, thoughts etc through the process.

Oh I agree, I have been in touch with Lindsay, couldn't meet her in bangalore but I did inform her that I will be applying for the 2021 intake. I hopefully should be completing the application by this month end.

Hey,

Best of luck, bro. If Ivey will be the best for you, I wish you get accepted soon. Please share your profile (i.e. GMAT, TOEFL scores, GPA, Work experiences) with us and update us on your progress.



Hey!

Mixed bag profile, tbh.

GMAT - 660.
Work Experience - 7.5 years (Sales profile across technology startups. Engineer turned salesperson across Zomato, Roadrunnr (Core team and strategy) and Belong. Currently heading sales across APAC for a fin-tech startup).
Undergraduation - MIT Manipal. Mechtatronics Engineer.
Involved for the last 6 years with the Robin Hood Army (Check this out) and in the core expansion team.

Looking at consulting roles post Ivey!

Cheers.

Hey all,

I've gotten an invitation to interview and have scheduled mine for the end of the month. I submitted my application over the Christmas break, 2019. I'm in the middle of research and preparation at the moment. Ivey is my top pick :)

Aside from your GPA this looks really solid. Do you have like a good excuse? I was an econ major myself (and taught macro/micro) and realize it's not the easiest.

Fo you have maybe a CPA or something that would show focused study? Alt transcript?

Your GMAT is solid so that should help a lot. What is your ethnicity or citizenship?

I like your screen name that's cute :-)

don't really have much here in the way of what you'd offer for stories that relate to teamwork leadership and problem solving. That's definitely a big factor

Hopefully enough for an offer! GPA-wise, I definitely agree that it's the weakest link. I do have an excuse which is personal health (and a diagnosis). I feel I can confidently address any concerns on this being predictive of my performance during the MBA. It hasn't really come up during interactions with the admission team, though... Do you think it would be wise to volunteer an explanation if it's not raised during the interview? I expect it will be factored in during the assessment anyway.

My work experience would probably be the strongest part of my application. I've lead or supported 40+ project/new business development across a variety of sectors and subsectors, with differing business models, stakeholders, teams, and countries. By nature of the role, we are heavily involved in leading cross-functional teams and planning & decision-making in the face of uncertainty. This fits in quite well with Ivey's case study method so I'll be trying to drive that home during the interview!

I'm South East Asian and not currently a resident/citizen of Canada.
