hi
I wanted to apply for the fall'11 session @ ivey but could not do so.
I am now looking at the spring'12 session.
overlord , any views on the program beginning in Spring.

Kindly clear my below doubts too:

1. is the program cost of the session in Spring'12 same as that of the program beginning in Fall?
2.Is the placement drive same for the students in the two above mentioned programs i.e Fall and Spring?

my short term goal was consulting too and I tied that to Ivey and my long term goal was to open a mark consultin firm of my own and i tied that to Canada.....which made sense......but in ur case I guess u'll have to harp on how Ivey is the best place for consultin thanks to the case based methodology and also talk abt the placement team, the "get Connected week", etc............also since u will b talkin abt consulting do a lil bit of research on consulting firms...try to talk abt the firms that you are looking at gettin into post mba.........check if these firms come to Ivey...and have a few reasons to give when they ask u y these firms..........my dream was bain and I came up with abt 4-5 reasons as to y bain and not BCG or Mckin and these reasons again into my long term goals.........wat I'm tryin to say is that have a complete story without nay loose ends.....pm if u have more qs......


Overlord, your posts have been a great help. Got an admit offer today. Was wondering if there is a forum where I could touch base with prospective students.

Hey Puys,

Has anyone from R3 heard from Ivey about their results? And what time lines have been told during the interview time, I was told when I was applying that I will hear about the results by Jan 21

Cheers, VM
