I'm also still on the waitlist . Question - was the third round deposit deadline shared already on this forum? I know waitlisters had to decide quickly, but has the third round deposit deadline already passed? Thanks!

FYI - a new blog entry is up. There isn't any info about the waitlist, unfortunately, but it does have some info that might be helpful for those of you who are looking to reapply next year.

IM DEAD freakin SERIOUS! One thing you Americans do not realise is that just because you doing to gmat dont mean you are american or even live in the US for that matter. I have looked at 25 maybe over US universities michigan state being one but when you say Ross Michigan it maybe different.

Im coming from the UK where i did my 1st degree. There Manchester Metroplitan University and Manchester University all in the same place and walking distance from each other so thought it might be the case here but telling by your sarcasm they are obviously the same uni.

People tend to be harsh on the internet... no need to make broad (pun intended) generalizations about nationalities on here... I can assure you that the people on this site do not assume everyone taking the GMAT is an American...

Michigan state(broad) and U Michigan (Ross) are about as similar as UPenn(Wharton) and Penn State(Smeal). They are in the same state, and thats about it.

yes, and Amherst College and UMass Amherst are also the same thing, as well as Umass Boston and Boston University.

To add, Umass Dartmouth is now officially the same thing as Dartmouth College...

Also, U of California Berkeley = Both the Berklee School of Music, and the California Maritime Academy.

Ok, I'm done!

You forgot one thing: Ithaca College = Cornell University. I mean they both are in Ithaca.

Dear Friends,

I am in a very confused state. I have no idea how to finance my 110k tuition fees?

My mind has gone completely blank and I am not sure how to go ahead with the financial planning. The first step is always the most difficult one.

I figured you were trolling. It's a simple google search which takes less time than posting here, or at least the results come quicker. Has nothing to do with country of origin.

palsays - I'm in the same boat as you. Got the call yesterday and have been trying to come up with loan options ever since. At the moment, it looks pretty hard. From what I've seen so far, Indian banks don't offer more than Rs.30lacs(~$55-60k) in loans which would miss the mark by a long shot. I was told that they'll add us to an admitted students google group next week. So I'm waiting for that and maybe I'll pose the same question there to see what other students from India/similar countries have done. Not to make the issue bigger - but remember that for F1 visa they'll want to see arrangements for both tuition fees and other expenses during the 2 years. So it will be more like$150k.

Thought I would check in with my fellow wls! How is everybody holding out? How is your summer going? I guess this is going to be a long summer. I think that at this point, while you keep watch on the wls, perhaps it is now that time to reconsider that back-up option... reapplying/etc. I plan on reapplying, so i'm in the middle of boosting my GMAT, etc.

For those who recently got off the WLs, congruts. For the rest, I wish everyone the best of luck. Keep the faith, and hopefully we shall all overcome!

Hi Everybody, I got admitted off the WL last week. I had applied in R2. Can anybody point/invite me to any admitted students group? I heard there is one google group.

Hi,

I am an international student who has been on the Waitlist. I recall that the FAQs for Waitlist students mentioned that international students will be considered for admission till 1st July.

I haven't received any update from the Adcom nor has the status changed on Wolverine since yesterday.

I do understand that tuition expenses are a real challenge. One possibility you could explore is taking loans form US banks. The only caveat being you would need to have a cosigner/guarantor who is either a permanent resident or an American citizen.
