Hi,

I seek advise in shortlisting Canadian B-schools for 2019 intake with the help of my profile below:

I am a Chartered Accountant (CA) from India with two years of work experience post completion of CA.

I've done my articleship in Deloitte for three years in statutory audit (catering companies of various industries including but not limited to NBFC, Asset management companies, infrastructure, Insurance (Life/General - both), etc.). Out of aforementioned three years, two years of work has been post graduation.

My post qualification work experience as a CA has been divided into two areas, as a valuation analyst for 1 year (have valued mostly US based start-up companies) and one year as assistant manager finance in automobile industry.

I have also cleared CFA Level-2 exam in June 2018 and am planning to give Level-3 exam in June 2019. I have volunteered for Make-a-Difference (NGO) for one year as a teacher.

I have done my B.com from Mumbai university with 67% in T.Y.B.com [I don't know if my FYBcom and SYBcom score matters, but it is 55% in each year]. My score in SSC-78.92% and HSC-81%.

Having mentioned above background my GMAT score is a bit on lower side. It is a 610 (Q48V27), IR 55% and AWA 6.0 (89%). I do not intend to reappear GMAT and am looking for 2019 intake in good university.
[Other extra curricular includes participation in half-marathon for a cause, street play in college and making of a youtube short film which got 160,000+ views and 1k likes and 500 subscribers for a zero budget movie made in a week's span.]

Rotman has a GMAT waiver for a candidate who has cleared all three levels of CFA, since my Level 3 is in June 2019, I wont be able to go for this waiver, however, I wanted to know much weight would my CFA Level-2 would add weight to a low GMAT score.

I am looking for Universities like Rotman, Schulich, Ryerson, Alberta, HEC montreal, Sauder, etc. I would really appreciate if anyone can help me understand my chances. Further, If you can suggest good B-schools as per your view, it will be of great help. I am looking for B-schools with placements of above 85-90% within 3 months of graduation and average compensation above CAD 80,000.

Hello Sumitdave

Though your profile is good, with this GMAT it will be tricky.
CFA will add some weight but perhaps not enough to compensate.
People do get in with low scores in these Canadian schools, but as an Indian you may face a stiff competition.

Hi Varun,

Thank you for your reply, how about other B-schools like Ryerson, SFU, etc. which are also good, but I could see that their Average GMAT is somewhere around 612-630?

Thanks,
Sumit

The closer you are to a school's GMAT, the less a problem.
However, GMAT is not the only factor here.
Also, a lot of these schools look at Indians to take their averages up, so a low score may not help much considering your background.
All said your profile has the goods to take you through in some of these schools.
