Hi everybody,

I have got an admit into the class of 2014 January at the AGSM MBA program. I received the official offer letter along with scholarship details about a week back. I want to get connected with other students who got their offers and interested to know how many of you are going to accept. I am still undecided, hoping to apply for a couple of US colleges. I am only a bit skeptic about the career services and post job prospects in Australia. Can anyone throw some light on these topics?

Hi Chandu,
Just wanted to know what all did they mention in your email regarding the scholarship details. In my email they just wrote that they are rolling over my scholarship application to the next round. I wonder why :?

Shailaja


Hi Shailaja,

Sorry for the delayed reply. I have received the acceptance letter and the scholarship details the same day. It just says the amount of scholarship granted to us (25K for me). I have also receive the eCoE letter now and plan to go ahead with the visa process soon.

How many admits/accepts do we have in this forum? I have started looking for details like accommodation and other stuff. Would like to discuss about these with those going ahead with the program.

Chandu

Not yet !!! In my interview on 4th sept , I was told that there are few interviews left worth 4-5 days and after that the feedbacks would start floating. So I think by tomorrow or Friday the results should start coming out...

Even though I have not got any confirmation , I would like to ask everyone here what are the options of student loans from Australian banks ? Do they need co-signer or collateral ?

I am not sure about the interest rates and whether australian loan would be better . I just thought it would save us from rupee fall. I do not need a visa so I was looking for options. If anyone has got information about Australian student loans please enlighten :)

Hi everyone,
Adding to the discussion.
I have been pondering over the same. Was interested in taking a loan from Aussie bank for pretty much the same reasons. So i went online and browsed through the sites of the Big 4 banks of Aussie namely:
1) ANZ
2) Commonwealth Bank
3) Westpac
4) NAB

Turns out, the rate of interest in all of these banks for Personal Loan ( Education loan comes under the broad category of Personal Loans) is not less than a whopping rate of 13.90%. This was the lowest rate that I saw for FIXED rate loans. In case of VARIABLE rates the figure goes to above 14 % and in some banks Variable rates were even more than 15%.

As far as my knowledge goes, Indian banks rates range from 11-12% maybe.
I think we should really get in touch with Indian students studying there in the current cohort and consult them how did they go about it.

On a totally unrelated topic. What ACCO options are all of you looking at. I am really bummed at what should be done. Shared Acco in nearby vicinity or opting for some on-campus acco??

Let me know, Thanks!!
Shailaja
Consider giving KUDOS if my post helps!!! :)

Hi Swati,
Congrats.!!
As far as the scholarship application is concerned,
The same happened when I submitted my application in R1 for scholarships. I submitted a week before the last date for scholarship submission and just four days after the last date of schol submission I got a mail saying that they are unable to offer me a schol in Round 1 however they would roll over my application to R2 of scholarship applications i.e. until 9th Sept.

I wonder what is the outcome in R2 for my schol applications. Will wait for tomorrow and contact them day after if i dont get any intimations further.

Hi All,
Today i got unofficial acceptance offer from AGSM, so thought of introducing myself to this group

Profile:
Nationality: Indian
Experience: 6+ years
International exp: 3+ years
Highest qualification: Masters in HR
Profile: Process and domain consultant and sales
CSR: Good
Gmat : not so great

I have a small question for you guys. At the time of submitting my application I asked for ILEST/TOFEL waiver (considering my educational and work experience background) admission committee agreed to that. Now when I am going to apply for student visa, do i need to take any of these test or not?

Looking forward to your valuable inputs.

Cheers

Hey All

Congrats to all who have got the unofficial confirmation.. Great stuff!! I have also received my unofficial confirmation today :)) The feeling has not really sunk in as yet.. Unfortunately, even I have not got any scholarship sanctions from the school, but I'm sure it'll be worth it..

I researched a bit on Australian loans as well but it seems that the interest rates are higher than Indian rates, so I guess I'm going to go ahead and look for an Indian loan.. Apparently, I hear that the SBI Education loans are supposed to be better than the others in terms of interest rates. - HDFC and other private banks are more expensive..

I also know a few friends who have studied at UNSW and a few people who live in Sydney.. They say that the accommodation on campus (UNSW Village) is beautiful but quite steep compared to living outside, however, the campus has all the possible facilities to use if one lives there..

I could create a group of facebook if required, so why don't all the people who have got admits send in your email addresses and I'll get one up..

Until the next post, Cheers Mates!!
