Hi tech3,

I will be applying in Round 2 and am currently working on my essays.

Could you please let me know if Ivey requires the transcripts to be directly sent by the undergrad institution, or will a scanned official copy suffice for the application stage?

How is your application coming along?

Thanks.

8) International experience?
9) Which is your development area? / One major weakness? / 2 strength/weakness?
10) Kind of jobs I am looking post MBA?
11) What are your target companies after MBA (3) & Why?
12) What is your backup if you do not get through these companies?
13) If not able to achieve your short term goal then what?
14) Which geography I want to launch my career and why?
15) Experience with client facing... what was the learning?
16) Situation where you had a difficult client and how you dealt with it?
17) Most difficult professional challenge?
18) Instance of leadership quality?

20) Short term goals & How do you see consulting team and Ivey helping you attain your short term goal?
21) Example on how would you work in a team with one team member lagging behind?
22) What does teamwork means to you, as a leader?

Hi Danesh

Any Schol??? I have received an admit as well on 21st. Lets Connect. My gmail id is [email protected]. Look forward to chatting with you.

Hey we have each other on FB. Let's discuss further there

Very good news guys, congrats!
@hammerlock , it must be a relief to get an admit after waiting almost a month :). Any schol?
@dhansak, congrats again :)

Hi @tech3

It surely is a releif. No schol though. Arranging the funds is going to be a real pain. I just hope i dont have to drop the offer due to insufficiency of funds.

Have you applied ? Will be posting my interview experience very soon.

Hi Guys,


Just had my interview. Could anyone tell me how much time they take to tell the result?


Hi Guys, I have submitted my application on 28th Aug.

Can anyone tell me how many days it takes for them to revert?
