Scholarship stats? [#permalink] New post 27 Feb 2007, 20:34
I was wondering if the people that have been offered scholarships could post their stats here so that the rest of us that are applying later can have something to compare with in evaluating our own chances. Something like:

School that offered the scholarship:
How much was offered:
GMAT score:
GPA:
College you attended:
Work experience:
Type of work:
Extras:

If you can think of something else that might be relevant, throw it in there. If there is already a website with this information, could you let me know? Thanks.

I've been looking for this same information for some time now and I don't believe it is available anywhere. I think a lot of people consider that information to be private and aren't willing to share on a public forum. It would be very useful though. If there was a way to post it anonymously, there might be more interest.

Also, race and gender probably play a large role in scholarship decisions.

Is there a place that lists average scholarship awards by school? I have not seen it anywhere, but very curious.

Off the top of my head, US News includes some information on this, at least indirectly. They have a cost section that shows tuition, fees, books, and living expenses. The next entry is average indebtedness. Obviously, students who self-finance their MBAs or get their employers to do it will have less debt and may not have any scholarships at all. But I think that this data can still give you a very general idea of how one school compares to another.

Business week gives average scholarship amounts and whether they are merit or need based. This is the best info out there.

This is a private forum, right? Nobody has to post their name. Post anonymously if you like. I think that this sort of info would be great to have, not just for me, but for everybody. Thank you WBF, I hope more will follow your example.

So, nobody else was offered scholarships? I would think given all the 700+ GMAT scorers posting here that there would be plenty of scholarships given. Come on, lets get a nice database going for the sake of everyone. Nobody else thinks this is a good idea?

Ahh..I was under the impression that GMAT club "alumni" still contribute well after they are admitted. I thought that maybe last year's admits have something to contribute. I'm still kind of new here.

Is this through 'insider' subscription thought? I don't have it.

No, it's a part of the regular access. It may only be available for the top 30 schools though.
