Does anyone have an experience asking for scholarship from McDonough? If so, was it succesfull? Is there a chance that they will consider a request for it?

Yes they do. Just contact the admissions office and they will share an online form. Attach competing offers .

Thank you! May I ask if you have the similar experience with McDonough already?

­Thanks! Did you submit the supplement essay along with the waitlist confirmation or seperately? (There's a box for a 150 word essay with the yes/no confirmation and I just want to know if I'll get a chance to accept my position first and submit the essay later).

As I understood, the waitlist confirmation essay is an action plan and supplemental essay is more general, i.e. what you've already done to improve your application. Once you send your cofnirmation for the waitlist, you'll receive the waitlist webinar invite and in that webinar they explain all details. After that webinar, in a couple of days you'll receice a link where you can upload new materials, including the supplemental essay, i.e. you don't send anythng directly to the admissions.

To all the international appliacants, if you have not recieved any scholarship and considering taking out a loan, I would highly advise you to talk with currrent students and understand the job market. I have heard about people with 7,9 even 12 years of expericnce who had to return to their country because they could not land a job. Please excersice caution regarding the AI’s impact on the job market in the next two years , as its effects are already becoming apparent. Its bloodbath in IT and Finance and god knows what happents in next two years. I would highly reccomend going to schools which have offered you scholarships.

I think the problem persists with the job market scenario as of now. not many people are getting jobs after completing their MBA that is why such dubiousness.

But hopefully, the market may improve by the time we finish our MBA in 26.

Better to play safe and not go for GT, specially internationals (Assuming you don’t have scholarships above 80K)
