Rotman Commerce Personal Statement 2012 Topics?

A photo of DeanVermillion DeanVermillion
Hey guys,

I am applying to Rotman this year.
There is a personal statement which each applicant has to complete.
So, what are the possible topics? Has anyone done it?

Rotman is timing applicants for their essays about leadership this year.
Any evil thoughts of getting the topic before you press the begin button is doomed to fail. :batman:

LOL Dude, everybody gets a different question. I am not trying to get the questions, I just want to know what was it like, like a sample question. so I would be prepared for any kind of random questions.

I think they randomly pick one from ten questions. I mean it's pretty obvious questions about leadership, ECs are going to be on.

Make sure you do not do the personal statement on a mac. I didnt know this and wasted two attempts for no reason. I wrote completely diff. essays for the two diff. topics, wasted so much time and effort. So yeah, make sure to do it on a PC Windows computer.
The essays are all on EC, very generic questions, like highlight on your leadership, EC, etc. Main focus is on your EC's and achievements, that's what's important.

Just did it. It's 60 minutes and they will give you randomly generate one essay question out of a pool of 10 questions. 3 attempts. Make sure you enable javascript. Question is pretty basic but time goes by fast. Don't bother with formatting, in the end they take out all the indents and spacing.

Good luck everyone, hopefully I'll be seeing a bunch of you guys next year wherever I end up going.

What do you mean by 3 attempts? So you get to do it again if you feel that your first try was not perfect? Would that affect the admission decsions tho?
