Tepper Waitlist! [#permalink] New post 31 May 2007, 13:58
Hi everyone,

Sad but here I am waitlisted at Tepper. Time's running out and so is hope. I've sent some update material, waiting to hear from them by mid June which is really late since i'm an international candidate.

Are there others out there waiting on Tepper? Please share ur experiences and experienced folks who could put in their comments?

Btw, I am still hoping to get lucky :)

Cheers!

dimitri

I was on the waitlist since R1 decision in Nov. I sent them two updates but I guess it was of no use atleast as of now. I made my decision and have sent them a mail asking them to withdraw my name from the WL. There is no way that am going to manage the costs for Tepper. Just the amount to be shown for Visa processing comes to around 135K ie 5,400,000 indian rupees. Gosh, I wish my father was a billionaire[:)]

Its ridiculous for these guys to give WL' decisions in June. I am pretty sure its going to be very difficult for internationals to get thru with their visa stuff and most importantly financials. Hope you have good luck with your result. I assume you 'll start hearing from them by 4th of june.

I don't get it, don't they provide financial aid (i.e.: loans without US co-signors)?

Lepium,

Tepper is one such school where the tuition is very high yet they dont provide loans without US cosignors for internationals. Its been a drawback of their financial assitance system, esp for people coming from abroad.

I guess 'luminos' can throw more light into it since he is from India and also heading to Tepper. I know for sure that Tepper does not offer need-based assistance. That makes it seriously tough for internationals to provide 130K on their own.

Dunno why they have this strange policy, almost all the top schools help in arranging loans for int studs.

Well, I guess that when dealing with minor differences in schools (such as exist in between closely ranked schools) this fact could be used to differentiate in between them. To make it simpler: I don't think a school could seriously expect to climb into the Elite cluster without offering this facility.
