With nearly 7k applicants and just over 500 spots available per year, Rotman Commerce is one of the most competitive programs in Canada.
Grades are important, but your video interview and essays are the difference-maker. The problem is, most students fail to produce a strong supplemental application.
The strength of your supplemental application will determine your future—but doing a high-quality job takes time that you don’t have, given all of your other commitments.
Stop scrambling for feedback and answers. Get clear, proven advice from a professional you can trust.
Believe it or not, all Rotman Commerce applicants have shockingly similar profiles: elite athletes, DECA finalists, class presidents, club founders, etc.
We help students develop extracurriculars that truly stand-out, while drawing out the pieces of your life—most of which you will overlook—to create a truly compelling and authentic application.
We don’t just edit essays. We help craft clear and compelling stories that perfectly encapsulate who you are and what the admissions committee is looking for.
For 9+ years, we’ve read so many Rotman Commerce applications that we know what works and what doesn’t—we’ll steer you away from unoriginal, cliché, or ‘no-no’ strategies.

"I cannot thank you enough for your assistance in attaining acceptance to Queen's Commerce and Rotman Commerce. I could not have done it without you. Right from the beginning you made me feel like I had known you for years. We had a few laughs, but more importantly you played a huge role in pulling out all in intricate details of my life that I never would have thought were important. Overall it was a great experience and I cannot thank you enough."
"Alex did an excellent job helping me out with my application to Rotman Commerce.
Alex was very helpful and profound in his knowledge and I was amazed by the quick response time. I can wholeheartedly recommend the team if you wish to pursue a top degree course in Canada."
"We have received fantastic services from Alex and Joel, and our daughter has got her dream school's offer. Again, thank you very much and all the best!"
"Joel and Alex are both knowledgeable, helpful and a great source of comfort in the overwhelming time of university applications. I would recommend their services to just about anyone writing a supplementary to one of Canada's top schools. They have a deep knowledge of the admissions process and will pinpoint key areas of needed improvement in your application. Even if you are confident in your own judgement, having a second opinion from them could mean the difference between acceptance and rejection."

Reach your post-secondary potential with the help of an expert youth coach.
Alex was the first admissions consultant focusing on Rotman Commerce back in 2011.
He's been advising students on their Rotman supplemental applications for 9+ years and knows the admissions process better than anyone outside the admissions committee.
Other companies may know the application and have some experience getting students in, but not the same consistency and extent as Alex and Admissions Ally. When it comes to getting into Rotman Commerce, he's "the guy".
For our 1-on-1 support, we start working with students starting in Grade 10 to a week before the application is due. The longer we work together, the more impact we can have; but if it is a shorter duration, we can expedite our work to help our clients.
Yes! If you have general questions about the about working with us 1-on-1, email us directly at [email protected] and we'll get back to you shortly.
If you're already getting coached, you are able to contact your coach via phone, text, and email at your convenience. That's the benefit of the monthly support model.
If you are unhappy with the service at any time, please contact your coach and our Student Success Team. If we are unable to resolve it to your satisfaction, we will give you a refund.
