BOOKMARKED
Looked a bit in the vault for info on this, there was some talk of Rice, Vandy, BU as schools that throw off a little more cash than most. Anyone have any thoughts on what programs are good targets for those with a pretty good profile who are looking for some tuition help (if not outright full rides)? Any stories/experiences are welcome. FT programs only for these purposes.

Since you are considering MBA programs such as Rice, BU and Vandy ( and also you want bigger scholarship)…

I hear that if you have GPA of around 3.4 and GMAT of around 650 – you can get about $20K a yr for Brandeis MBA program in Boston.

Another school with great scholarship package is BYU Marriott. Most of the tuition is subsidized by Church of Latter Day Saints. (You don’t have to be Mormon – just express how you can make the world better with MBA or something to that degree)

Michigan (Ross) and Virginia (Darden) grant nearly 100 full-rides per year between the two of them. The number of full-ride scholarships granted by a school is available in the BusinessWeek rankings.

These links will be of great interest to you :)

Kellogg gives out tons of money, not huge amounts but to lots of people. Most of gmatclubbers from last year who went to Kellogg got money. The sums arent huge, most got 5-15k. But it does take a little bit of the sting out of the tuition...especially considering its a Top 5 school.

However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.
