Is there any chance that I'll get a scholarship? [#permalink] New post 01 Sep 2010, 14:26
I thought that I'd throw this question out there for anyone who might have a clear understanding of how the scholarship process works. Basically, I'm trying to figure out if I have any chance of getting a scholarship.

Here's my background: BS in Engineering from a mid-range school, MS in Science from a different mid-range school. I maintained a 3.0 at both, basically on a constant basis over the 7 years. That was good enough to keep my academic scholarship, during undergrad.

I haven't finished studying for the GMAT yet, but I'm getting above 750 on my practice tests, so I think that I might actually score above 750 on the test day. I have about a month left in my studying, so I don't think that I'll backslide too much.

So, am I in or out of the running for scholarships in general? I've been looking at the health care program at Kellogg, the MBA/MPH program at Haas, the health care program at Wharton, and Harvard (which doesn't have a health care program but does have scholarship money for life science-focused graduates). I think that I in general match the profile of successful applicants, but I'm wondering how much my previous academic record determines my eligibility for any of the scholarship money allocated to these programs.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Hi jsmith54,

Scholarships are normally very competitive and difficult to receive at MBA programs. However, this shouldn't stop you from applying to receive one.

I hope this was of help. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions.
