Had my interview and visited the school last week. Was impressed with the students, faculty, and facilities. Waiting on a decision - I'm leaning towards Ivey right now as they gave me a much better scholarship than I expected, so my decision is probably going to come down to what size of scholarship I get from Queen's, if any. I was really impressed with both schools, and I feel like I can't go wrong with either. The interview experience was more informal than my other interviews. My interviewer had a unique ability to facilitate more meaningful yet casual feeling discussion than I'm used to - I suspect this was done intentionally to get a better peak at the person behind the usual interview-facade.

Good luck to other applicants.

Hi All,

I am creating this thread for all the folks joining Queens MBA - class of 2018 (Jan 2017 Intake) or who are planning to apply to Queen's Smith school of business. We can use this thread to discuss about the approach for application or help one another during various stages of selection process.

I got an admit for queen's FT MBA program 2018, starting in Jan 2017.

I will be happy to answer your queries .

Lets get this thread started !

All the best :)

Regards,
Vishwa



Hey Vishwa, was going to start this today and there you go, you have done it. Thank you. :) I am also considering Queen's 18 in case I do not get through the fall admits of any of my target schools in Canada. Would you kindly share your profile and your admission timelines?
I am in the early stages and have just got my admissions representative assigned.

Regards,
Vijay G



Hi Vijay,

I have 5 years of work experience in IT service and Consulting company. I started my application in Nov 15, and Completed it by mid of December. What i understood is "Queen's does not have strict deadlines, it is more like Rolling admission process" .

Your application advisor will guide through the entire process, and Queen's admission process is very collaborative.

For any queries related to Cover letter or video interview stage ... please feel free to contact me

Regards,
Vishwa :)


Hey Vishwa,

I am planning to submit my application before 14th March but my application advisor is on leave for a week. She will be back on 3rd March. In the mean time, I want to be as prepared as possible. Can you please answer my below queries?

1) Do i need to submit official transcripts before 14th March? Or do they consider my marksheet scans for application process and accept my original transcripts at the time of final admission?

2) Do they consider Unofficial GMAT Score report for application process as most of the schools do?

3) Can you share your cover letter? I have no idea what so ever how this cover letter is written. Be assurerd I wont plagiarize.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Shounak, I've answered for 1 & 2 below.
1) Yes, you've got to send the original transcripts. I checked with my advisor and she confirmed it.
2) No they do not consider unofficial reports. It has to be official. Again confirmed by my advisor.
All the very best.

Hello everyone and congratulations to all the successful candidates who got the acceptance letter!

I received an acceptance email for the 2017 Jan intake and look forward to connecting with prospective candidates.

Just to give a quick background about myself, I have seven years of experience as a satellite communications specialist. In my capacity as Assistant Manager in the International Division, I have worked on 15 international assignments covering a plethora of services and a wide spectrum of technologies. I am now keen to make a transition to the field of consulting and align myself with the Telecommunication, Media and Technology (TMT) division there.

I had quite an engaging conversation with Mr. Shai Dubey in February and it never felt like an interview at all.

Hi,

You should expect it in 4-5 business days. I got it in 2 days, but then i applied pretty early probably that was less load period.

Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I am aiming to apply by the end of this July. I am in need of some advise regarding pursing Queen's MBA. I am a "non-profit" professional looking to switch to "for-profit" sectors after MBA. I am hearing that a 12 months program instead of a 20 months program is not beneficial for career switchers like me. What's your take on this? Also, what are my chances of getting into Queen's program. Here is a summary of my profile:

Location: Bangladesh
Work Experience: 5+ years at a non-profit consultancy firm, designing inclusive business models with private companies to improve 2 agricultural value chains.
GRE 1: 308 (Q158, V150), prearing for GRE 2, aiming for 320
CGPA: 3.20 out of 4 (Marketing and Finance)
Extracurricular activities in college: led the cultural club activities in college, won 2 business case competitions.
Other activities: Implementing various community development projects for the underprivileged in urban slums through a pro-bono community development organization.
Future Goals: Switch to "for-profit" from "non-profit" consultancy.

Looking forward hear from you guys.

Tanvir

Hello Everybody :)

I found out about Queens recently and I fell in love with the curriculum! I have started my application and am hoping to complete it in the coming few weeks. I have a query and any help would be much appreciated. My first and second referees are my manager and my colleague respectively and now I'm lost with whom I should select as my 3rd referee. Any advice?

Congratulations to the admits and my best wishes to my fellow applicants! :)

I am doing my MBA at queens right now and i can help with questions you have.
let me say there is no min requirement for gmat and your score doesnt have to be 700+ for an admit. if you are at 670-680 you should have a decent chance at an admit provided you have a well rounded profile. 720+ will increase your scholarship amount by 10k or so.
MBA+MMA is an excellent program and i know one person from last years batch who did it and is now working at IBM in Toronto. He got job 5-6 offers. In our bath we have 3 people who are doing it and i believe you do get a decent discount and the total fees add upto 120k less scholarship(nos might have changed).

There are truly only 3 top programs in canada which include queens, rotman and ivey. Queens and Ivey are excellent for a 1 yr program but if you do want to switch careers rotman would be a good option as you could do a summer internship which helps.

Received a mail from my application advisor last night and she said that the school has reached its enrollment capacity and that going forward admissions will be done on a wait list basis where the most competitive of the students will be offered an admission!

It's tough to believe that we are in the middle of R2 and enrollment capacity has already been reached..

the batch size is small and the school recently got 50 million which would be used for giving out higher scholarships and attracting better faculty. Hence it could be possible that the school has filled up 50-60% of the quota and now only wants students with a 700+ gmat and a unique background. They are doing some pretty good things and hence i would recommend sticking and following up with queens on a regular basis if you are waitlisted.

Thank you for the heads up buddy :-D It's good to know that Queens is trying to improve!!

But it's a little demotivating to know that my chances have fallen down to a waitlist already even before applying. Even if my application is really strong my only chance of getting an admit is if incoming students withdraw their admissions..

Hey, being a current student, could you share your profile with us ,if you don't mind, and also your experience over the last 3 months :-D
