Thanks a lot! I am retaking the GMAT next month. Got a 5 in AWA this time.
I completely agree with the 6 month duration. But, what about the diverse work ex? Are you referring to starting-up and then, joining another start-up ? The job function in both companies was business development. Will it still be considered diverse?


I believe as soon as you can provide a strong reason for your short duration of work ex , you are good.

I want to be honest here, so brought the point. Short duration work-ex shows instability but if you tell them that you got more exciting opportunity linked towards your long term/short term goals, you are good. Just make sure your story is very compelling.

Instability would come more than diverseness. Don't worry. Get a top score and most of the things would be covered.

Good luck :)

Hi Rakibullah,

Your GMAT score is great, and 5.5 years at Nestle sounds meaty and substantial. What about your achievements and general impact at work?
Gong by the stats, overall things look good to me. I'd focus on getting your story together- what have you done so far, what do you wish to do in the future and why do you need an MBA for that?
If you are applying from Bangladesh, addressing why Toronto is a good place to study will complete the loop on the career goals.

All the best!

Hi,

Can you mention what stage of the application did you reach last year? If you were dinged without an interview, it could be in large part because of the low strength of your application. If you had the interview, you should analyze deeper into what did not go right with the interview.

Your age is on the higher side of the Rotman class profile. There is also a large gap between your undergrad and the CA. Were you working at this time and is it part of the 5 year work experience you have mentioned?

Your GMAT score may be considered low for the Indian applicant pool. I have seen most Rotman admits with 700+ GMAT scores. So, if you can retake it before the R2 deadlines, it will only benefit you. As a reapplicant, it may demonstrate your strong intent to study at Rotman.

LAstly, I'll add, its never good applying to only one b-schools (if thats what you are doing). So, identify and explore more b-schools where you would like to study.
