Hi Guys

Congratulations everyone!
Does anyone have additional information about the loans for international candidates? There isn't much information available on the website and therefore, I am assuming the school doesn't offer any loan or funding without a co-signer. However, I would like to know more about private funding options.

Appreciate your input.

Thanks!

I believe the only option is a loan through Prodigy. They finance up to 80% of tuition plus living expenses.
Hope it helps!

Thanks for your reply Mate.

I tried contacting them and the offer that they sent doesn't cover the entire COA (even after the scholarship). I don't think I would be able to use multiple loan options and therefore, would have to go with the one that offers the full amount.

Are you aware of other similar organizations?

Thanks!

Waitlisted, and they didn´t comment anything about scholarship, so I will be going to ASU, which offers me full ride + stipend. I dont think they give full ride here anyway, and even so I have no clue that leads me to think that they would finance me at all...

I have accepted my offer, though I haven't executed enrollment deposit yet.

I believe you can pay via credit card (not sure if fee applies), direct transfer from bank account, or check.

You can pay with an e-check, credit card (MC, Amex, or Discover only), or EFT (through bank account and routing number) - fees apply for credit cards. I believe it takes 2-3 days for payment to process.

Trying to decide between McCombs, Booth and a couple others... O&G guy working in Houston and a big draw to McCombs is the regional O&G strength.

Would like to keep my current career progression going by working part-time (~20hrs) while in the full-time program (Houston distance or a small Austin shop). Looking for an (*) instead of a career change. The part-time Houston program is not a possibility due to SO's work commitments (has to move to Austin, Chicago, or 2 other cities)

I'd love to hear any current or former students weigh in on the ability to work part-time while in the program. Ideal world would be to swing classes only Mon/Wed or Tues/Thurs....

Not a current student (profile is not accurately reflecting status) and planning to enroll in 2017...

From talking to current students in the past, at McCombs during the first semester, you'll be in class M-Th from 8am to around noon or 1pm. Afternoons are generally busy with group meetings, study groups, recruiting, and other networking events. I've been advised that it's pretty hard to work while in school -during the first year.

If you're looking to continue career progression while getting your MBA, why not consider the McCombs evening MBA program? You could live in Austin and even work full-time? The full-time program tends to prove highest ROI for those making career switches.

Sorry, I did not understand what you meant with "other similar organizations". Do you mean other organizations that offer loans to internationals without co signer? I really do believe that the only option in McCombs is Prodigy. In other schools there is also a company called Quorum.
