Hi, I don't have bachelor degree, can I apply for B-school? [#permalink] New post 30 Apr 2012, 05:01
I have two Questions. I am Chinese.

I have very low scores of my gpa, I failed lots of tests during the college so I don't have bachelor degree, but I have a bachelor graduation certification. Is that acceptable to b-school like top10,or top30. Are all school requiring bachelor degree as a implusive?

Secondly, regarding tuition fee. How can a international student get loan from US? What is the requirement about getting a loan? Is it hard?

1. You need a bachelor's period.

2. Only a legal alien of the US can get a federal loan. It's not that hard as long as you don't have horrific credit.

First, what do you mean by " I need a bachelor period"? Do you mean that I have undergone this 4 years college life so that the B-school will consider my application and let go with me without having a degree? Do all B-schools need degree at least for application?

Well, I have horriable credit in my own country. And by the way I don't think China is good alien of US.

You need a bachelor's degree in order to get an MBA. No exceptions. The way you sound, you don't have a degree, so there's no nice way to say it, but you can't get any master's degree from a legit institution without a bachelor's degree. You can apply without a degree technically, but you'll get rejected.

I don't know how Chinese credit translates into US credit. But GradPLUS loan credit criteria is not as stringent as getting a mortgage. If you have a US work VISA and are in the US, you should be eligible to apply for US direct loans (Stafford and GradPLUS). I don't think China is a US enemy, and there are plenty of Chinese expatriates here in America.

1) You need a Bachelors degree. What is a bachelor graduation certification? For the top 10 or top 30 I have only heard of 1 or 2 cases of students getting accepted without it but they had AMAZING experience and recommendations.

2) Have you taken the GMAT? After you have taken the GMAT you need to score close to a 700.

3) How much work experience do you have? You need atleast 2 years of professional work experience.

Loans for accepted international students are easy, I rarely have heard of a student not able to secure funding. My advice would be to look into other avenues to improve your employability, maybe do a bachelors where you can go straight into doing the final 2 years of course work, then work in a great corporate job then apply to a top 30 program.

Good luck.
