I graduated from UofT 2 years ago, went into another non-finance related career but now thinking of going to finance ( in search of a better job). I hope they accept non-recent grads.

Applied last week. It was a relatively painless application compared to many of the US ones. Does anyone know how many people get interview invitations? I heard most people they're considering who are close to Toronto will receive interviews. I'm graduating from UWaterloo.

on info session they said about 150 (out of 500 applicants) get interviews and I heard that they actually prefer international students

Why would they prefer international students? I almost finished my application. Are you guys preparing for the UofT interview or UW test at all?.

less scholarships to go around, higher prices for them, more revenue for the university.

Yes. You can apply for a private one on your own. From my admissions encounter feedback with other schools, scholarship administration is a nightmare.

Hi, did you apply for MQF of UWaterloo? General speaking, which one is easier to get in?

This is not the true. They do not prefer international students. If anything, they should prefer resident students since it is easier for them to get full time employment.

All students pay the same amount of money; 40k regardless of if you are from Toronto or Bermuda.

International students only have to pay a little extra for health insurance but it is not much.

Dismantler, thanks for the info! Do you have any suggestions what to review in case I get an interview? ( I was out of school for a few years, so need to review some math concepts)

Review some probability theory and general math courses you took in undergrad.

If you got an A+ in ode's you better know how to answer basic questions when asked. That kills a lot of people in the interviews. They have amazing marks but can't answer basic questions.
