@abhinavbehl

If you have received this email from Chris lynch than I am afraid that there is not much that can be done.He is the admissions director for University of Alberta and he might have confirmed this with the FGSR.I am afraid i am not aware of admissions policies of the FGSR committee so i wouldnt be of much help to you.

I would suggest you apply for other colls.Wish you all the best!!

Hi Hayena,

This is what their reply has been, recd it from Chris on 9th Jan.

Hello Abhinav,
I'm afraid that our Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research would not consider your degree from the National Institute of Fashion Technology for admission to a Master's program at the University of Alberta. Unfortunately, that would make you ineligible for the Alberta MBA at this time.
Thanks,
Chris

Any Ideas what made them make such a decision?

Hi, I had put a query to the admission office of Alberta if i am eligible for the MBA program and after reviewing my academic history they had come back with the answer that my university, National Institute of Fashion Technology, is not in their list of accredited schools. I have replied back stating that my university has been granted statutory status under the act of Parliament of India in 2006, empowering the Institute to award degrees and other academic distinctions.
I havent heard back from them till date, may be due to winter breaks.
Lets hope that i hear from them.

My current score
GMAT - 710
QA - 50
Verbal - 36

Pls suggest if i should still apply to the course?

You will get all the details for financial that you need to show at the link below.The amount you can show can be greater than the amount mentioned on the website. The greater you show the better it is .But dont go overboard about it.

Hi all,

Thought of sharing a happy news,
I submitted by app on 20-Nov'12 and done with the interview on 14-Dec'12.
I received an email from Eva, on 20-Dec, stating that my application has been forwarded to FGSR for final approval.
Anyone else got the admit mail?

Regards,
Mithun.
