Hey!
I am in the process of completing my application for Queen's MBA. Is there a format for the cover letter? I've written it in essay form in first person. Since I've never written a cover letter in my life, I'd appreciate if someone can direct me to a template that I can use.

Thanks!

Just submitted my primary application today.
I'm really short on time to finish the essays now :(

What are the chances of getting in with 3.5 years work experience with great career progression from Management Trainee, Technology to eventually Growth Marketing & Analytics and a GRE score of 331?

In some of the Queen's webinars, it has been mentioned about what the adcoms expect.

Webinar recorded in 2016





Jump to 30 min:30 sec)-1para about yourself, your background, Why Queen's and Why now and what you're looking for post-MBA

Webinar recorded in 2018





Jump to 24 min:10 sec)- 3 things are to be covered: Why an MBA ? Why Queen's, why its appels to the candidate ? What are post MBA goals ? 1 page restriction. essentially tell complete story why the candidate should pursue this degree, why Queen's and what the student will do with it.



Aditionally, aeromati who received an admit from Queen's has given his opinion how he/she wrote cover letter. Scroll to the bottom of the page on the following link:

Thanks gocoder for the reply.

Had my interview yesterday in Mumbai with Matt. It was pretty informal and felt more like a conversation. Queens will get back with the decision by the 2nd week of June. Fingers crossed! :)
