Hello ,

Did any of the Round 2 applicants receive email regarding ISLP ( International Student Loan Program ) ?

I did not receive an invite for interview , but I saw an e-mail regarding ISLP today. Is it usual to receive this e-mail prior to receiving an invite for interview ??

( or am I trying to read too much )


I think they just reached an agreement to offer this funding option to international students and they want to know how many prospectives would be interested and estimate an overall amount.

I also received this email even though I submitted my app in R1. I was asked to complete the questionnaire by 12/12. Otherwise, they would understand that I'm not interested in the ISLP. After answering the questions, I received an email saying that they added my responses to my app package (although their admission decision will not be influenced by my answers).

Just 5 more days for R1 decisions! Good luck!


Hey kheown did you understand that question where they say "What is the maximum ISLP percent you wish to be considered"? What does that mean?

Hi!
I'd say they want to know how much money you estimate that you'll need from loans each year. This could be pretty hard, especially when you have no idea if you will be admitted with some kind of scholarship. What I did was allocating 80% of the money I'll have available at matriculation for first year expenses and partial payment of tuition. The rest of my money would go towards second year expenses or partial payment of tuition.

If you detract that amount from the annual estimated cost of the MBA at Simon, you should have an approximate figure of the money you'll need each year. Then just write the number that money represents of the total annual cost of the MBA, and you should have it :)

I also took into account some sort of partial scholarship since, given a couple of decisions that I have already recieved, I don't think I'd attend Simon without any scholarship money in case I'm admitted.

This figures should not play any part on the adcom admittance decision. But that's just my opinion, and I'd suggest to be honest throughout the whole process and a little bit more conservative when answering this questionnaire (meaning that I'd right a slightly higher number than the funding you actually think you'll need).

Hello!
How did you find out? I haven't received an email/call regarding their decision.
It doesn't say anything on the application Website either...
