First year Rotman is definitely a challenge but no more then any of the other top business schools. Rotman also has an undergraduate Law association. Let me know if you have anymore questions/concerns about specific Rotman courses.

Rotman undergrad is not as hard as people always say. However, I would say it is the hardest or most competitive business program to stay in. They have a very high dropout rate for a reason, they accept alot of people. Although the content may be similar, they heavily use the bell curve. If you are confident you can pass your 3 core courses go ahead for the program.

First year at Rotman is all math. So if you're great at math then you have nothing to worry about.

Not gonna lie, it isn't the best best business program in the country, but I am pretty confident it IS the hardest.

It is among the top for sure though.

Hi OP! I am currently going into my third year at Rotman, hopefully I can shed some light on this matter. When you go into University from High School, there's a obviously a jump in terms of difficulty and I personally needed an adjustment period to get used to my new demands. Time-management is difficult, but if you do it right, I actually found that there a lot of spare time on top of the courseload. The math in first year is actually laughable, the material covered in your mandatory math program is literally a grade 12 equivalent, except without trigonometry. However, I did find the first year economics course to be challenging, the curriculum delved a lot deeper than my grade 12 economics did, so there was a degree of catching up required.
