Hello everyone,
Congratulations to all admits. I am really pleased to receive an admit from Tepper but I am equally worried about financing my tepper degree. Even after the 10k annual scholarship, Tepper is burning a big hole in my pocket. And with the current uncertainties concerning the visa issues in the US for Indians, I do not want to graduate with a massive pile of debt.
Any information about whether Tepper offers graduate assistant ship and likewise any other advice on financing my tepper degree?

Hello,
I got the good news back in December!
I now looking into financing.
I was denied the scholarship and I'm afraid I will probably have to borrow almost 100%
I'm also looking into other grants/scholarships but the news aren't good.

As a foreign applicant has anyone experience in this field?
Have you borrowed money for students loan in which organisation?
Some local banks accept only eligible citizens (which I am not obviously).
I'm getting a bit nervous here, and information is quite difficult to find.

Thank you!!

I'm not an international application but if it makes you feel better, I'll likely have to fund 100% of the cost of Tepper with loans.

Hello,
I have some other questions regarding the software that is used at Tepper.
Are the email Microsoft of Google?
What kind of software is required for statistical analysis? is R an option?
What other software is used very often and not so common elsewhere?
Thanks!

Tepper (and CMU more broadly) uses Google's suite of apps (including Gmail). As far as software, the only one I've had to purchase was EViews which is about $100. You'll be given a license for Risk Solver which is used in the Optimization course. As a CMU student, you'll also have access to other software including Matlab.

Hi.
I am international too. But luckily I got a line of credit (on my house) approved already, so won't be drawing upon other loans.
When you say 100%, does it mean 100% of tuition fees or total COA (tuition + living)? Because, if you are talking about COA, it is a huge problem.
Most internationals are (in most cases) eligible to borrow only up to 80% and even less in some cases - depending on creditworthiness - as perceived by the lender.
It also raises concerns, why would you need 100% when you are choosing one of the costliest degrees? This question can come to haunt you during your VISA interview.
And finally, every dollar that you borrow, you will be paying back with interest - trust me that at times mean paying back $2 for every dollar you borrow.

I went a bit far on tengent.
To answer your question, Prodigy seems a better option. But a lots of time they won't allow you to borrow another loan from any other lender and they mostly lend 80% of COA. Check that out.

Hey guys!

Wanted to check on your housing plans. When do you plan on moving? Where do you plan on renting? Do you think you will look for roommates?

I think I'd prefer 1 roommate to save $, but to live in a decent place. But I do have 2 cats, which I realize might be an issue.

I've owned my own house for the last 5 years, which I will be selling, but realize the value of keeping a place nice and neat. Also want the place to include a washing machine/dryer. Any advice helps!

I'm planning to move early or mid July, looking only in the Shadyside and Oakland neighborhoods - ideally walking distance to the new Tepper Quad (which I'm super, super excited about!).

Re: roommates, my first preference is living alone, but Admit Weekend might change my mind. I've been checking apartments.com as well as Craiglist for listings/openings, and have started contacting management companies to get a feel for things. Hope this helps!

I've been looking at craiglist too, there seem to be many options close to campus. Just don't know about timing. Definitely trying to be financially efficient as much as possible.

And yes, I am also super excited about the new Quad! We will be in a brand new building! Woo-hoo!

Walking distance is perfect. I'd also love to be efficient at costs by sharing it. But I think two should be good enough number - anything more than that starts to get crowded. I'd prefer 2 bed - 2 washrooms.
I'm planning to make a move in late July.
Though, I won't be making it to the admit weekend due to a project on hand.

Anyway, let's all keep in touch and see how it goes.

Congrats and Welcome to Tepper Family.

Housing - Always Shadyside - Near by to 5th. Most of the Networking events and Tepper Club events are hosted on Walnut street.So be close to that street.

Squirrel is cheaper but farther from Tepper and even farther from Tepper Quad.

Hope you all are enjoying Base camp.
