Hi,

Request somebody well versed with Rotman admission process to evaluate my profile. Still quite new to Rotman process so not sure if I am a right fit for this school. I will share a brief about my profile. Please let me know if any other detail required.

GMAT - 700 (Q50, V34, AWA-5, IR-8). Work ex – 52 months as on date. Will have 57.5 months of work –ex as on 31st March, 2019.


Grad & Work Ex:
I have done my graduation in Fashion Technology from National Institute of Fashion Technology. My college is regarded as the best fashion college in the country and is among the top 3 colleges in Asia. Right now I am working with the biggest apparel organization in the country. I have reached middle management role in a very short duration. Currently I head pan India operations of my brand.

Profile:
Qualitatively I have a strong profile. I have worked hard to build my profile over the last few years. I am national level athlete and a national level quiz medalist. I have led teams during my college days and have also worked for couple of spiritual and non-for-profit organizations in the past.


Reasons for MBA:
Though I have got good success in the initial years of my career, a graduate degree won't be sufficient to take me to senior level roles in future. There are certain areas in the field of strategy and finance where I feel I am still not equipped enough to handle things completely on my own. An MBA at this stage will also help in making my profile much stronger. A master’s degree will make me financially more stable.


Post MBA plans:
Post MBA I want to work in roles of Brand Management with specialization in the fields of Strategy and Marketing. I am open to industries outside the fashion industry though I wouldn't mind coming back to this industry.

Dilemma:

Under the given geopolitical situation, will it be advisable for Indian candidates to apply to Canadian schools?

I'm targeting colleges within top 30.

I am not in a position where I can spend more than 100K CAD. So scholarship will be a deal breaker for me to join any college. Is getting a scholarship a possibility with this profile?

Hope I have given all the required information to suggest the best course of action. Let me know if any other detail from my side is required. Will be obliged if you can suggest the way forward. Thanks.

Hello Anujkumar2401

Decent profile. If you can score 720-730 it will no doubt give a boost, but even with your current score you have a very good shot.
The key for you here is execution. As long as you can highlight your strengths on all the admission factors mentioned here and tie your past seamlessly with your future goals in the essays (read here) you have a fighting chance at Rotman.

Hello,
It would be appreciated if someone familiar with admission process could evaluate my profile. Thanks in advance!

Background and nationality: 25/male/Chinese

Undergrad Information: Boston University Questrom School of Business, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (concentrations: Accounting & Finance); GPA: 3.24/4; Major GPA: 3.48/4 (top 20%)

GMAT: took the GRE; v157 (76 percentile) q167 (91 percentile) these are best scores from individual sections, not from one single attempt
1st attempt v157 q165; 2nd attempt v154 q167 (dates taken: Sep & Oct 2015)

Work experience and leadership: 3 years of experience at KPMG Audit - financial services in Beijing, China, job title: assistant manager. Led traditional audit engagements, accounting advisory projects, internal control projects and U.S. IPO audit engagements.

Community and others: Actively seeking CSR opportunities - joined the KPMG school mission trip to a remote area in China and an English music camp jointly initiated by China Care Fund and KPMG.

Post MBA goals: Deal Advisory - Transaction services, valuations or M&A (prefer candidates with Audit background so my accounting knowledge is a plus) or management consulting

Anything else? Internships - United Nations (headquarter in New York City): audit assistant in the Board of Auditors; Bank of China & The People's Bank of China (central bank) summer internships

Recommendation letters - 2 letters from senior partners of the Greater China region

Moving up the corporate ladder in the Big 4 is not difficult but I find it actually limits my vision and leadership skills, and I am looking to switch out from auditing so I want to pursue an MBA degree at this point in my career.

Thank you!

Hello shroff8


I assume based on your profile (CFA, FRM) you want to specialize in Finance related majors on MBA studies ? ( Financial Reporting and Analysis/Funds Management/Investment Banking)


Certainly this major would be my choice :cool:

http://www.rotman.utoronto.ca/Degrees/M ... ngineering


I think your work experience is relevant.

Having professional certificates like CFA and soon FRM is great and having GMAT waived means they will focus on other aspects of your application, but it should be advantage for you certainly.

Average undergraduate GPA is 3.5. for admitted students at Rotman.


I would say you have very good chances and would most probably end up being admitted :thumbup:


Here is their class profile as further guidance and comparison, if necessary :

Good luck and keep us posted with result ! :fingers_crossed:

Hello wizbiz007

Pretty strong profile for Rotman in terms of work experience and GMAT. What other schools are you applying to?
I see you haven't touched upon your career goals. A clear, specific and realistic career goals narrative is the most crucial part of your written applications. You will need to present this well in order to gain an admission. You may want to read here to add to your existing research.
Coming to extracurricular activities (these add diversity to your profile)- keep in mind that most school/college activities do not carry much weight (unless you have achieved something spectacular)
To conclude, as long as you can present all the factors mentioned here in your written application, you have a decent shot at Rotman.

Hello daivat21buch

Interesting profile. Seems strong on academic and extracurricular achievements. A big laundry list- you should now zero in on the stories that you want to to tell in your essays (you can't possibly tell everything, so choose wisely)
At the same time, I am slightly surprised, you have mentioned so much around your academic and extracurricular achievements and hardly anything around your work experience except the role/company and international exposure. An MBA at the root of it is a professional program and it would help if you give the same (or more) focuse to your career progress, achievements at work, impact on the business of your organization.
Career goals seem realistic, but why MBA and why Rotman- do your research.
Your GMAT is not stellar, but not a deal breaker for Rotman either. What other schools are your applying to?
To conclude, choose the right stories, highlight the depth of your work ex and tie in career goals accordingly and you have a decent shot.

Hi Guys!

Glad to find this thread here and looking for some opinions on my current chances of making it into Rotman.

I'm an Indian male aged 26 years. I'm a lawyer by training from Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, Delhi. (Final Year grade - 73%) Have represented in several competitions in College and won 2. Had Organisational roles in a few events as well.
I have worked at the conjunction of policy and law. My work experience is as follows:

1 year with a Judge of the Delhi High Court as a law researcher.
1 year with a Member of Parliament as a Legislative Assistant in a fellowship by a leading think tank. Assisted with policy interventions, Questions to the Govt and various constituency issues with the MP. (Also getting an LOR from him)
1.2 years with the Central Government Counsel where I worked on defending the policies and interests of the Government in the Delhi High Court.

GRE Score: 321 (163V 158Q 5.0 AWA) - (On their website they state average GRE scores as 313 and median as 316 but how safe is my score? Also, what is the proportion of GRE admits they have?)

Have attended a summer school (American Institute of Political and Economic Systems 2017) in Prague which also delved in Conflict Resolution.
Was a part of the Official Delegation of Government of India to the World Festival of Youth and Students in Sochi, Russia where I presented on Tech Policy and Universal Basic Income.

So my background is non-business, but with the mix of policy in it, I am keen on branching out into business with post MBA goals of going into social sector entrepreneurship or Government Consulting.
Please advise on my chances!

Hello Charitarth

Yours is an interesting profile. Your work experience adds brownie points and I wouldn't stress too much with that GRE score (or how many people apply with GRE for that matter- these are futile speculations and you can make better use of your time)
That said, a lot will depend on your career goals- I don't see a mention of the same here.
With a profile that is different in terms of work ex, you will have to justify why MBA and why Rotman. You may want to read here to know more on career goals.
If you can tie in a strong career goals' narrative with the admission factors mentioned here, this GRE score can get you in. (that is a big 'IF' though)

I have worked at the conjunction of policy and law. My work experience is as follows:

1 year with a Judge of the Delhi High Court as a law researcher.
1 year with a Member of Parliament as a Legislative Assistant in a fellowship by a leading think tank. Assisted with policy interventions, Questions to the Govt and various constituency issues with the MP. (Also getting an LOR from him)
1.2 years with the Central Government Counsel where I worked on defending the policies and interests of the Government in the Delhi High Court.

GRE Score: 321 (163V 158Q 5.0 AWA) - (On their website they state average GRE scores as 313 and median as 316 but how safe is my score? Also, what is the proportion of GRE admits they have?)

Have attended a summer school (American Institute of Political and Economic Systems 2017) in Prague which also delved in Conflict Resolution.
Was a part of the Official Delegation of Government of India to the World Festival of Youth and Students in Sochi, Russia where I presented on Tech Policy and Universal Basic Income.

So my background is non-business, but with the mix of policy in it, I am keen on branching out into business with post MBA goals of going into social sector entrepreneurship or Government Consulting.
Please advise on my chances!

Regards,
Charitarth Bharti
