In this post I would like to ask everyone seeing it to share their experience of applying to either Bocconi or SSE MSc in Finance programs! I am sure that many applicants would be happy to see such information and would be very glad to you! Please, tell us as much as you would like! For example,

1. For which academic year did you apply?
2. Have you been admitted/received scholarship?
3. GMAT/GRE score
4. GPA
5. Internships&extracurriculars

Or if you know the stories of other people, please, share them as well!

Thank you very much in advance!

Thank you for the response! I have received the notification that I am admitted to Bocconi several days ago, but have no news about scholarship decision. They actually told us that information about scholarship would be provided in a few days in case we get any. So, I hope to hear some good news on Monday!

My profile:
GPA 3.3/4.0
GMAT 700 (balanced score)
Three internships, one of which is in the international bank
I was also active in several student societies

Have you already decided if you will accept the offer or does it depend on the scholarship?

Unfortunately, I won't be able to afford it without scholarship, so will most likely decline

Thats not nice to hear because you would give up such a great opportunity; have you thought about taking a student loan?
Or do you have other plans already?

Hope to get a positive response from SSE with scholarship. I am non-eu student and to the best of my knowledge I am not eligible to any kind of student loans. May be you can advise me on whether there are any organizations who might consider to provide me a loan?

I must admit I have no idea what criteria you need to meet to be eligible for a student loan, but I don't see why you should not be eligible for one, have you done the research? What's the issue?

Also, I have read that the merit scholarship is given for ppl with GMAT score of 700+, so don't give up hope yet

I received my Rejection at Bocconi on the Date stated on the Website and my Admission to SSE also on the date stated on their website (15.03) so no need to worry if you do not receive an answer before the announced "last day of response".
