I am not sure if that is even offered for part-time MBA. And if there is any financial aid, it probably is from a small pool, so they may already have offered it to candidates from early-round rather than wait for first round candidates.
I didn't get any and I applied in the first round.

I am also under same impression that for weekend MBA they don't offer financial support..

Meanwhile I was planning to make one WhatsApp group of all Folks who had applied and/or accepted.
Please PM me your number, If anyone is interested.

financial aid is certainly available to part-time MBAs, via both Federal and Private loans. Unless you were talking about scholarship? that is extremely limited for part time programs.

I have an interview at Ross this week. Did those who interviewed wear a suit? I guess I'm just wondering because it's such a quick meeting.

Fellow members,

I am an international student (from india) working here on H1B. I have weekend MBA admits from Ross and would like to know from fellow international students whether General Motors and Ford hire international students (sponsor) MBA grads out of this school? (My concentration will be strategy & finance)
I have heard mixed answers from people and want to get insight from someone who actually went through the process and currently works in one of these companies.

I greatly appreciate any input from such students/professionals.

It's not a problem with Ross or GM/Ford, it's politics. Without going too much into that firestorm, the experiences of past visa holders may not be applicable soon, Trump has a new executive order coming out soon on H1B. Since I'm new to GMAT club, I can't post links, but a quick Google of "Draft Trump H1B Executive Order" should allow you to find it quickly.

it clearly states that new regulations will be put in place regarding foreign students and US students. Ford/GM may have limited numbers of visa sponsorship and may have to prove that no US worker had similar skills as you, which in the area of Finance and Strategy, is probably not true. They would probably use their limited H1B "quota" on engineers. The old 20,000 for US based college students may be a thing of the past; your status as a worker trying to use a student clause would probably not fly in any case.

Trust me, H1B visas are about to become a huge topic and with most things in American politics, the pendulam swings in another direction fast. You may be best served by waiting it out before finding yourself still only employable through your current employer a couple of years down the road and an MBA in hand.

Hope this helps.

Hi everyone. I had my interview today - I thought it relatively well. It was on par with what everyone was saying in this thread.

I have a question. Does anyone know of someone getting interviewed for the weekend program and NOT getting admitted? For the most part, it sounds like everyone who interviewed has been admitted.

Thanks.
