Hi totodile6ix

Round 3 last year was too late for international applicants to apply to. That could have been a key factor.

Other than that, your profile seems solid. The goals need a bit more explanation in terms of what you would want to do as it seems quite similar to what you are already doing. Why get an MBA, and what will be different/better about your post-MBA plans?

Feel free to get in touch directly for a quick chat and evaluation.

Hi shwethanand
- Your GMAT score at 650 currently is not ideal. Look at a 30-50 point raise. This will also enhance your chances at other schools.
- The other part in your profile which you will need to manage a bit is your story - you have moved around a lot in different functions/companies, and there needs to be a central focus on why you need the MBA and what you will do post-MBA.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi ThusSpokeZ

Looks really solid vakil sahab. Why are you not applying to a Kellogg/Cornell/Duke? On your queries:
- The BALLB is certainly accepted. No worries there.
- If you have a query on the percentage, get in touch with Rotman directly. This has not been a huge issue in the past.

A question from our side as well:
- What are you looking for post-MBA? Why the MBA and what are your goals?

Any inputs on my profile and chances will be helpful. Also, do you think I need to retake the GMAT? Will the individual sectional scores be problematic?

Thanks


Hi testtaker2019

Your GMAT is absolutely fine. Your overall profile is pretty good as well. You would have an excellent chance. Go ahead with your apps.

Hi IwaterMyPlants

- Your international experience and Master's degree will give you an edge over many other applicants. For this reason, your 690 could work.
- The role as hub manager and in operations, in the Canadian context, gives you a further advantage in finding jobs after Rotman. Another plus.
- The research experience from earlier is not that relevant, but the fact that you have publications and awards highlight your capabilities.
- The ECA part is pretty good as well (important for Rotman).

Overall, you are well set. Ensure that you focus on your applications and bring your experiences together meaningfully. Feel free to contact directly for a chat or post questions here.

Post MBA Goal – Work in MBB strategy consulting firms

Posted from my mobile device


Hi Sid5050
- Seems quite interesting overall. IIT + GMAT 720 helps. Your GPA is a bit low though.
- The focus on consulting will need a closer look. Your experience has not been domain specific in consulting, so you might want to define a focus area. Would suggest you expand your ambitions beyond just MBB, as getting into MBB is always hard (though not impossible) if one is not coming from there in Canada.
- Would need more details on your ECA. What were the competitions about? The campus festival thing will not count for much.


Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed or to get in touch directly for a chat.

Hi abhisekmohanty86

Are there any gaps (education/work ex) in your profile that you may have neglected to mention here?

Other than that, would suggest the following:
- Your work-ex and GMAT seem ok.
- On ECA, your chess achievements are excellent. Toastmasters/CSR may not count for much. The personal investment part is interesting too - what size of corpus have you managed? The ECA part of your candidature will require some more thinking.
- On your goals, a move directly from banking to strategy consulting will be challenging. You have some excellent fin services experience - why move away post MBA?

Hi rajatvermaenator

- Excellent Merchant Navy engineer profile. Kudos on your achievements.
- The key areas to focus on for you will be:
a) Positioning your goal realistically to B-schools (including Rotman, which have very little space to explain on the goals part). You are from the engineering side of the Merchant Navy, not the navigation side. This means that your goal and relevance of current skill-set will be questioned a bit. Yes, you do have global experience, and have seen global supply chains at play, but your core skill-set was less administrative/navigational and more technical. Choose schools carefully.
b) Showcasing enough depth in extra-curriculars. While you have done some things, owing to the nature of your role, you cannot take out that much time for ECA as other people can. Making the most of what you have done will be important.
- Other than this, GMAT is fine. The GPA is a bit low though.
- Also go through this link as it might be relevant to you.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed or to get in touch directly for a chat.

Hi it would be great if someone could evaluate my Rotman profile

Age : 27

Gender : Male

GMAT score : 650 (Q47 V33)

Undergraduate : Bachelors in Business Management majored in Finance from Christ University Bangalore

GPA : 3.0

Other info : Cleared two levels of the CFA program

Work experience : 5 years of diverse work experience in one of the biggest and most reputed bulge bracket investment banks. I started my career with financial operations and soon transitioned into the world of data analytics. Currently I am working as a business intelligence specialist specializing in report automation via ETL tools and robotic process automation.

CSR : I am helping NGO understand their function better via helping them with data analytics

Leadership : I successfully led the toastmasters program in my company and expanded the same. For the same I have received a leadership award.

USP : Even though I am a commerce graduate, I am into one the functions that is traditionally held by STEM graduates or people who have a computer science background. I thrive to break the stereotype and push boundaries in my work place and my academics.

Query 1: I know my GPA is not the best and neither is my GMAT, however, given the work experience I have and my CFA journey (cleared 2 levels, I am planning to leverage the same for admission into Rotman.

Query 2 : Do you think I should apply after clearing my level 3 so as to get the GMAT waiver?

Query 3 : I am planning to apply for fall 2020 so that I wouldn't waste much time if I get through. My level 3 exam is in June 2020. Do you think this makes sense? I am doing this so even if I get a ding, I would still be familiar with the admission process and would improve upon any short comings that I faced earlier.

What do you think about my profile!

Hi Soumya94,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. You have a compelling profile with a strong GMAT for Rotman. You also have clear goals in understanding (i) why you require an MBA, and (ii) a clear post-MBA direction. The third component that is missing from your post is why Rotman.

As to your work experience, did you receive promotions while at WTW, or did you remain a Market Research Assistant? As to Evalueserve, I like that you have been awarded for your contributions. Have you received any promotions since you started your role at Evalueserve?

I would welcome speaking further about your profile offline. If interested, please reach out.

Good luck!

Susan

Your profile looks strong, what's your AWA score?

You should focus on writing the essay (spike factor) and focus on your extra curricular/interesting work experiences beyond the casual job responsibilities. For rotman, the spike factor always is make or break.
