Hi Bn1509,

Hope this finds you well.

The GMAT is good, if not stellar and your leadership experience will hold value. Having said that, there are two things you will need to take care of in order to put forth a compelling case:
-A more specific set of career goals; of course, we don't want your goals to sound too exclusive; however, what you currently have in place does not do justice to why you would need an MBA. Moreover, the same does not sound very focused.
-The essays will be crucial - particularly how well you portray your career growth, achievements, and acquired skill-set. Moreover, your career goals will need to be in strong sync with your existing experience.

If you are able to take care of the above-mentioned points, you stand a good chance at Rotman.

All the best!

Hi, I am planning to apply to Rotman in round 3. Some evaluation of my profile will help a lot.

Background and nationality: Indian Male

Undergrad Information: B Tech Mechanical Engineering from SASTRA University. GPA of 7.48
School: 12th -95% and 10th- 88%

GMAT: Expecting a score of 730

Work experience and leadership:
1) Worked for 2 years in Teach for India (an NGO) from May 2016 to April 2018 as a teaching fellow. Gave me the opportunity to teach kids of grades 4, 5 and 6. Through the 2 years works in many classrooms and community development projects to expose the kids to the outside world. Had a partnership with ASTEP ( Artists striving to end poverty) and had a Broadway actor to teach drama and mime to the class to help them better express themselves. The kids used this to present a mime in their community about a prevalent issue of Alcoholism. Conducted 2 citywide cultural and sports festival for 4000 kids. WAs in charge of events and logistics for the fest.
2) From May 2018 to October 2018 worked as a Business Analyst for a for-profit education startup. Did analysis of customer data to find patterns and maximize customer retention. Also in charge of sales, partnering with various schools to get them to use our products.
3) November and December, working part-time with same ed startup for Content Development for higher grades (8th to 12th )

Extra Curricular: Was a part of the college theatre team and have won many awards. Volunteered with an NGO during college. Have helped conduct 3 teacher training camps and a student empowerment camp in rural India.

What are my chances of getting in? Is there anything specific I should look out for in the application or interview?

Also please do suggest any other school to which I could apply to

Thanks.


Hello meemam,

Thanks for sharing your query.

The target GMAT score, experience with Teach for India, and extra-curricular activities sound good.

Having said the above, the career goals are an important piece in the applications puzzle and must flow in sync with your existing experience. As the same are not included in your query, we are unable to comment in detail. Furthermore, your current experience (which is part-time) may pose a few questions and hence you must be prepared with a suitable response for the same. Generally, schools would like to see you involved in full-time work and your part-time involvement may cause some concern.

To add to the above, chances in R3 will be substantially lower than the previous rounds particularly because you are an international candidate. We would, therefore, recommend that you apply in R1 next year (of course, it is advisable that you get involved in full-time work).

Thanks.

Alll the best!

Hello Sraghav786

The outline of your profile looks good. Past acads, GMAT, the national level TT experience and different work experience (versus the larger pool of Indian applicants).
No info on career goals though, a clarity on why MBA and why Rotman will be vital at the time of the interview.
Key for you is execution and what 'spike' you decide to show in your written application.

Thank you for your help.


A fellow Rotman applicant here. Safe to say, you have solid academics. One thing that I would like to see more is - a clear connection between your client handling/leadership role experiences and your post MBA goal of consulting. It maybe a straightforward answer for you, but make sure that you are able to clearly articulate this connection in your essays. A sense of numbers would also help. Apart from that, I really don't see a lot to pick on, but again, I am just an applicant and I am no expert. One question, however, is that why would you go for Rotman when your credentials are worthy of a top-50 b-school admit?
