Rotman Personal Profile Help!!

A photo of leaves02 leaves02
Have any of you started Rotman Personal Profile yet???
ok,,,, the essay has to be within 400 words... I'm choosing to answer "What extracurricular skills and experience will you bring to Rotman Commerce?".. but I have no idea how to incorporate the ECs i have within only 400 words....
any tips on writing the personal profile? what is the best way to organize your answer?
should i include as many ECs as possible, or should i talk more about what i learnt from each of them with less ECs?

thanks very much!

Only incorporate the best ones if you have many. Being concise is a writing skill business schools would like to see.

Thank you for all the replies:compress:
Do you know what will happen if I exceed the word limit?
Will the system allow me to type after it is 400 words?
Is it going to reduce my chance of getting in?

I'm assuming it will not let you type past 400, as that is the easiest way for them to count really. But if it lets you go over, I would presume that they can figure it out somehow so going over would reduce your chance as it shows that you cannot follow basic instructions.

You applied to a lot of places.

I would try & get to the point of as many activities as you can.
Just list each one & explain it in one or two sentences.
If you go over the word limit, it will not submit your application & make you go back & change it.
Hope this helps :compress:

what do they mean by scholarship? what kind of scholarship? All of the scholars offered by UT? or just entrance scholar?

btw the due date for them would be Jan 25 for scholarships, and April 1 for all applicants in ON.

If i complete my personal statement after january 25, will i be able to get a entrance scholarship? Is the due date for every scholarship excluding entrance?
