Also, should I target US B schools? Employment after completing MBA is an important criterion to decide which schools to apply. From few current students in US I have heard really negative reviews regarding job scenario for international MBA students in US. The situation is not bright in even top 15 colleges. Under the current geo-political situation, will it be a viable option to try for any US school?
Employment for international students in the US is more difficult to obtain due to visa issues. This tends to push international students towards banking, tech, and consulting. It's more difficult to justify H1-B visa for general management and marketing when I was in school (Obama administration). I expect it'll be harder under the Trump administration. With that said, my international classmates have had good success is gaining employment in their home countries after b-school. Although the starting salaries were lower at the time, I think some have grown at a more rapid rate than they would have in the US, given talent competition may be more intense in the US - harder to stand out.

Scholarships aren't guaranteed, and it is very rare to get full ride. I would concentrate on the expected return of your education vs. low initiation investment cost. Getting a cheaper education with a lower starting salary and lower career growth potential may not pay off in the long term.

I am really nervous. The ""Applicant Materials Status" section, reports only my first GMAT attempt which was a 570. It does not show my most recent score of 720. GMAC website says updated scores were sent to Fuqua on 12-08-17. I also self reported and uploaded the new score report when I applied. Sent them an email but have not yet heard back. I really hope they do not make a decision on the outdated information.

Hopefully, the portal I am seeing has just not updated yet.

I suggest that you call the school and explain the situation. I called them to ask about recommendation and the people were very helpful.

For those that have received your status links, is your application still showing as "Application Received" and not "Application Complete"?

Thank you for the help. Mine still says "Application Received" and "No Notifications" under Notifications. Not sure if I should call Admissions at this point.

My status also states “Application Received” and “No Notifications”.... I wouldn’t sweat it, they must still be processing apps.

My assumption would be that they have not processed your application materials yet. Wouldn't hurt to call and clarify.

This. Mine says application complete but only switched to that a day or two ago. In the explanation for the application statuses it mentions that it can take up to 3 weeks to review the apps for completion.

Same here. It has only been 2 weeks, so too early to be worried :). I would wait till end-Jan at least.

Mine changed to "complete" 3-4 days after the deadline. If it was me I'd call just to make sure they had everything they needed.

I had the exact same issue. Only showed my first GMAT score and not the most recent even though GMAC said it was sent to them months ago. I emailed admissions and they said they had both scores but there is a tech glitch from them showing up on the applicant status portal. She updated my portal and the next day it had bth my GMAT scores. Hope this helps.

The email should contain instructions for setting your account up.
