I got the admit packet but no info on scholarships. Not sure if that just means perhaps that I didn't get any. Most, if not all, of my tuition should be covered under the GI Bill for Military. I figured they would have mentioned something about scholarship/fellowships, unless that comes seperately. Beyond that though the information was very enticing, and it was very well put together.

Hi All!

Just received the admit email from Paul! Nothing about scholarships in the email! Do we need to accept the admission decision to receive info about the scholarships? Any Indians on GMATCLUB who were admitted this year?

Hey there congratulations. I recieved my admit a couple weeks ago, and just got financial information on Wednesday. Nothing about FA came in the admit packet, and I got an email from Admissions stating the info would be out in 7-10 days. Hope that helps. You should recieve a call pertaining to scholarships, grants, etc. I'm pumped, 90% sure I'm going to attend next fall. MSU was right around my #1 and after the FA I can't resist. Good luck

Congrats to you and thanks for the wishes! But did you have to pay the 500$ deposit for the scholarship details to be released or is it released regardless of whether you accept or not?

Thanks Nikhil.. No, I have not paid the deposit yet. They will say the scholarship details regardless of that. And it was likewise for another guy who got an admit and the scholarship and now chose not to get it.

Thanks a lot for your replies! I was planning on taking up Broad only incase of a scholarship. Otherwise it would be too much of an investment from my side :) Its a fantastic school no doubt, but my career goals and the college placements + local economy would put me in a precarious situation post MBA. The scholarships will just help me reduce the risk to a very large extent!!

Hi guys, What do you think about MSU Broad and PSU Smeal? I got admit from both MSU Broad and PSU Smeal. Both with enough financial aid to cover full tuition.

Depends on your situation, I'd look at the companies you want to work for and how they are recruited at both programs for internships and post mba jobs. Location is also a consideration. I was interested in Smeal but wanted to stay closer to the midwest, seems like a great program though. In my opinion MSU is on the rise and is one of the best public programs in the country. Of course I am biased because I am probably going there :) Looking forward to admit weekend

@mbaanimal : mind posting ur profile? I am also IN! Got the schol packet today. Although the schol is insignificant, but the GA carrot given is enticing enough (incase I am reading the fine print properly :D )

@Nikhil - Here's my brief profile
B.Tech Mech Engg (NITT) 8.77/10, MS Industrial & Systems (Manufac. Sys) Virginia Tech
GMAT 720
2 yrs as Advanced Manufac Engr at GE Appliances & Lighting (6 months Graduate coop of those 2 yrs)

So yea, my work ex was the biggest downside on my application... Reflected on my only admit:)
N reg jobs, I have experienced the worst situation (2009) after my MS here, so I know its definitely not going to be easy for internationals, but, yea this time around I will be better prepared to face it!;) all i m trying to tell is, internationals definitely need to fight it out! But IMO Broad giving scholarships to everyone, is definitely one of the safer bets! I have also heard the job scene is pretty ok for internationals in the SCM concentration, also economy is improving, so let's hope for the best:)

@akshayram : the only thing scaring me is the fact that I have no interest nor any experience in SCM :) I am from the Banking industry and wish to return to it. Hence attending broad might seriously complicate matters for me. Are there any guys interested in Finance here?

hi nikhilfotedar, I'm also an international students. I heard from a current mba year one student that this year the summer internship situation is much better than last two years, even for international students. Up till now, 65%+ of the students got the intern offer. Indeed, the SCM concentration will be relatively easy to find a job, other major in finance/HR is also not bad this year.
Hope things wud get better and better when we graduate.

Hi Youngstercao, I have been trying to get contacts of current students from Linkedin but most of the Eli Broad groups are locked. Can you please share the name of your contact? Or would it be possible for the student to come to GMATClub and answer our queries?

I got word from a year one marketing student that nearly all the markters have already accepted internships and most had multiple offers.
