It seems something is wrong with the admit list. I am not admitted but my username is appearing on the list accidentally. I've asked developers to look into the issue and hopefully it will be fixed soon. If you are an admitted student and want to see your username on the list, just go to App tracker, click on "Add My Info" button, and update your status to "Admitted". rotman-toronto-218/app-tracker.html

Congratulations to everyone admitted!

Is everyone on the list planning to take admission in Rotman, or still waiting for decisions from other schools?
And did everyone receive their admission packages through mail?

Congratulation guys! All the best for your future.

I was getting some jitters, so thought of reaching out to the people who have done it.
1) Any tips for Video essays?, where to begin, what questions to prepare? How does the process work?
2) I'm an international candidate, so can I just upload the scanned copy of original tranascripts and later on if I get admitted, could send over the original docs by mail-post as well.
3)Would be great if anyone could PM the set of recommendation questions, would be a great for me to help chose my recommendors.

Thanks a lot guys! Really appreciate your help. :)

This is not appropriate place to post these questions my friend. Please post them in main discussion thread. (calling-all-rotman-toronto-mba-applicants-2017-intake-class-of-221946.html) This thread is for admits to discuss next strategies.

It is pretty fancy, but it has none of the things you mentioned :(

It has a congratulations letter, the formal offer of admission and other official documents and even some information on finance. It also has a nice little guide on Toronto and the Rotman magazine. All in all it is quite nice :)

Guys
I have a question regarding the date of offer acceptance and the deposit amount. I am still awaiting my admissions package and want to negotiate my scholarship offer.
First of all, how much time do we have to accept or make a deposit?
Secondly, how should I approach scholarship negotiation? My offer was 20K
Third, what is the deposit amount? I read its CND 5000, but can someone please confirm?
Finally, what you all doing about the loan financing? I will be 100% reliant on prodigy finance and I have heard they only sponsor about 80% of "total cost of education". Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Can we please discuss these aspects?
Thanks

It's generally three weeks until you have to let them know of your decision, but the exact date will be indicated in the acceptance package, so you'd just have to wait for that. They do consider how long snail mail might take so you actually have a bit longer than three weeks between either the verbal offer on the phone or the written offer on email. You'll still have time to negotiate, especially if you give them a call. At this point they can't rescind their offer but negotiation is hard; $20K is already a lot and very few people get the $30K (I also don't know the status of funding from the Rotman family since Joseph Rotman passed away; I had heard his son wasn't a fan of continued funding to the school).

Are you not going to do the loans from BMO or RBC? They cover 100% of the tuition, no? (Actually, I'm not sure for international students...)

Hello to all,

Got admitted yesterday with 10k. Rotman was the only school I applied so would definitely accept the offer. Now I have to start saving money. Does anyone know what is the payment plan/schedule?

Thank you Bruno, yes I'm Brazilian! I came to Canada in 2015 through the Federal Skilled Worker Program. I’m 32 and have 10 years of work experience in commercial banking back home, but in Canada I couldn’t find a job in my field and worked as a personal trainer for one year to improve my english and applied for the MBA to get the career back on track. In my essay I said my goal was to make a switch from corporate banking to social finance, but in the interview I made clear that I’m aware that there are not many positions available in the area and I would be happy to go back to finance if necessary. I read it’s important to show them in your application that you know what you’re doing and that you will get a job after the MBA. I scored 590 on the GMAT and my GPA is 2.95. To write the essay I bought a book that helped, it’s called Great Applications for Business Schools from Paul Bodine. If you have any questions I’ll be happy to help, feel free to message me inbox too.

Congratulations! You will receive a package from Rotman by mail, which will have all the details you need about the payment plan/schedule, financing options etc.

Guys,

Anyone made a deposit from outside Canada? My bank doesn't make drafts and for money order or transfer they need swift code, iban etc. The school is closed until January 2nd and I'm worried I'm going to miss the deadline. Anyone facing same issue?
