I am in the same situation but now I have to think of sorting out the whole loan issue. Btw do you guys know whether we have to show money for our two year stay or one year stay? Generally for the visa and all, they ask whether you can sustain yourself for a year and since I would be taking a loan I am not sure how to show money for two year stay.

Maybe this will help?

You're right except for your name. Yours was easy . You'd never figure out me. My name is Dan Vitale. On beatthegmat forum I'm dvitale7, not sure why I made that one close to my real name...

Hi deepti387, Congrats on getting the admit as well as the scholarship. I have received no scholarship . Have you joined the Facebook group for the admits of Class of 2014? As per the group, a lot of people have the same worry including me . Do join the FB group and add me(my name is pretty much evident from my username :D) so that we discuss about it further. By the way what is your profile like?

Hey Dan,

You are correct, I would have never figured out your name from your GC username . I am really surprised about the low activity in this thread. I thought a lot of people would pour in and share their joys and queries. I suppose I was wrong. Any ideas to keep the thread rolling?

Hi all! Seems like there's a lot more activity on the FB page than here! Probably all the better since there's a real name/face with the questions or comments.

That said, this might be a good place to post is someone wants to be more "anonymous". In my case, I'm still trying to decide between schools so I'd rather not give out my real identity here on GC.

To continue this discussion on tuition fees...Tepper is EXPENSIVE! Just out of curiosity, do most schools require a US cosigner for international students? I've seen a few people on this forum decline awesome acceptances because they can't get a cosigner. It seems really unfortunate.

looks like a lot of applicants admitted to Tepper applied to Ross as well... on january 13th, this could become a Tepper vs Ross thread... or, I love Tepper and Hate Ross thread ! We shall see!

I'll be the first to say I dislike Ross! Well, more like I really dislike U of Michigan so Ross by association. I also have no real reason other than the fact that every single UMich alum I have met, without fail, is incredibly obnoxious with school pride. Their indoctrination of school spirit is amazing. Unfortunately, as someone from a D3 school, I just don't get it.

Other than that, it's a great university with top notch programs

Nothing here, I'm guessing they will send them after next year since the admissions office is closed till January 3rd... but i've been wrong before and I do check everyday! The happy feeling is wearing off, I need the packet to bring back the excitement!!
