Deferred by Rotman Commerce

A photo of jerryc9309 jerryc9309
Hey guyz, I am a student from Vancouver. Applying Rotman Commerce. #1 choice on OUAC.
My interim Eng mark is 86 and a solid 94 for calculus. Avg 91.8
But I got deferred, and they are going to look at my application again by late may.
I think my weakness are: I withdraw from math and calculus before, but there is only a W on my transcript. So i guess thats not repeating.
And i suck at chemistry, got 19% final. But I replace is with a 88% Biology and currently completing the course..

My questions are: are there alot of ppl out there share the same situation as I am?
And what are the chances of getting for me right now?

I choose the 2nd topic. Because its leadership i onli mentioned in details of my experience as the captain of basketball team and leader of a student-led enterprise.

I thought I did a good job describing these 2. but i didnt mention any other stuff, cuz i dont want to show the importance of these 2 . wondering if thats the right move?

The withdrawn courses may be hurting you. Have you looked up their policy on withdrawn courses?

Nope. I havent encounter that part yet. But its too late to change anything now, isnt it?
I think it might be the Ws, but its not against their repeated course policy

It isn't against their policy, but they may still be looking upon that negatively. You can call them up and ask them if you want to pursue it further. Given your average, this seems to be the only apparent reason.

I really want to go UT, and I have asked and email them a couple times. All they are saying is waiting for a decision. Besides, even if the W has negative effect on me. Its too late to change it.
I just want some opinions and insights perhaps from you guyz that what are my chances of getting in?

It enjoys a good reputation, a degree from ut can get me a job after graduation. sounds fair to u?
And i like toronto, lots opportunities.
I dunno if rotman is realli that good or not. but I just wanna go there

So you have a 91 average, and managed to get 19 in Chem? Looks like you really slacked off here. As everyone said, I agree too, the withdrawn courses may be hurting you! Good luck, the average is definitely competitive!!

Heyyy, I'm from Vancouver too.

I have been deferred by Rotman also, but it does say for "early admission" and since my school is semester, I wasn't able to get all the grades in before April 13.

My guess is that they are going to start accepting guys starting and going through May as, I believe, they need to give everyone an answer before May 31st? Anyone can confirm that?

May 30th is the final day for either,

1. an offer of admission;
2. a refusal, or
3. a deferral pending(required additional information)

the 19% definately hurt you since you actually failed a course and withdrawing a course is just like reapeating a course i believe...It really depends on how many people accepting their offers from rotman this year. If they do not have enough of people taking their offers, then i believe that they'll consider people from their deferred list or else, why would they defer you now instead of later on in may?
This is all based on my perspective.
