Grade 11 Marks

Parenting: 90%
Intro. to Marketing: 85%
Travel & Tourism: 96%
Intro. to Anthropology, Sociology, Psych: 65%
Chemistry: 61%
Media Arts: 88%

English: 95%
Advanced Functions: 91%
Business Leadership: 93%
Calculus & Vectors: 90% (Projected)
Economics: 92% (Projected)
International Business: 94% (Projected)

Extra-Curricular Activities

- DECA & Athletic Association (School Clubs/Joined in the beginning of grade 12)
- Part-time job at a retail merchandies store (The Real Canadian Superstore/Worked for 8 months so far)
- 50+ volunteer hours at 3-4 different events

Personal Statement 60 mins, 400 words (Completed)

- Noticed a couple of minor punctuation/grammar mistakes after submitting it
- Question was "How do you plan to contribute to the Rotman Commerce community?"
- Sort of answered it by saying I will continue to be involved in the ECs they offer
- Focused heavily and more on the leadership, communication, self-motivation, skills I learned from my ECs that I been a part of so far (DECA & Athletic Association)
- Mentioned learning the importance of management from my part-time job
- Basically, focused more on the skills I learned from my ECs instead of listing the things I would do to contribute to the Rotman Commerce community

I know that Schools such as Schulich & Queens focus intensely on the supplementary app just as much as they do for academics. Same case for Rotman? Will they ignore some mistakes and not fully answering the question since I showed the importance of my ECs and management? Also with my grade 12 avgs (92+) later on in the year?

[size=7]WILL I GET INTO ROTMAN COMMERCE? I will appreciate your HONEST opinions. Thank you so much![/size]

nice turn-around in grade 12!

schulich -i don't think so... :S they need more ec's and also look at gr.11

rotman - looks at marks a lot, so if they don't see your gr.11 ones, i think you could get in

UTSC - better chance than rotman

Mac, Ryerson - should be good bets

For Rotman, Trinity College and Schulich, I'm not too sure since I didn't apply for those programs last year. But, I'm pretty sure you'll get into UTSC, McMaster and Ryerson. A couple of my friends got into McMaster and Ryerson with lower marks than yours, and I was accepted to the UTSC Co-op Management program with lower marks and fewer ECs than you.

Well your average is 92.5%
If you're not aiming for early acceptance, how does grade 11 marks matter??
I think you have a chance at all of them. (Schulich,I'm not sure)

In the first round,yes.
But after you have all your 6 grade 12 marks, grade 11 doesn't matter.
Even if they see it, it won't influence your acceptance.

Do they look at the grade 11 marks even if I do not want early acceptance? Because I've already submitted the personal statement for Rotman Commerce so all I need to do is wait for their response. What if they look at the grade 11 marks now thinking I want early acceptance and ignore my application second round since the previous marks were so low?

I've known people with sub-90 grade 11 marks who still got first round acceptances at most business schools. I'm pretty sure having a stellar first semester and incredible ECs/essays are way more important than grade 11.

Why do you guys answer questions if you dont know the answer?

They only look at Grade 11 marks for early admission. The main round of offers (after second semester midterms) they won't even look at Grade 11 marks. Grade 11 marks will never hurt you, only help you. Only exception I know is Waterloo AFM where grade 11 marks count for AFMAA invites, an essential part of getting into AFM. I shud know cuz my grade 11 English wasn't good enough and I didn't get invited :(

92.5%average, from what I've heard, it's more than enough.
And why are you desperate for Rotman? With your marks you have a chance at every school.

Schulich does NOT look at Gr.11 marks. They don't even give out early acceptances. It starts in late March. I called them. Sad, I know.

Most people say that Rotman and Schulich don't place a huge emphasis on ECs as opposed to Queen's or Ivey. If you have a high enough mark, you will get into both regardless of ECs. Rotman accepts people with mid-high 80s, so I really don't see why you wouldn't be accepted. Your average is pretty borderline for Schulich. If you had better ECs it could secure you a spot, but unfortunately you don't, so no one can really tell now. Rotman and Schulich have never been known for rejecting super-high averages because of below-average ECs. If your first choice is Rotman, I really wouldn't sweat it.

I disagree with the comment on Schulich.

OP's entering average is well in the "90% and 94%" range which should be good for either schools. I don't see why Schulich would put any more emphasis on EC's than Rotman.
