Just curious...has anybody tried negotiating scholarship with Olin? Any successes?

I received nothing from Olin and with a huge offer from Smeal and some money at Kelley I can't justify Olin without any aid.



I had some luck going from 0-20K. Used my almost full ride as leverage. Still decided against Olin. Was hoping closer to 40-50%

Hey,

I negotiated with them saying that i have been admitted to Oxford SBS and still want to come to Olin. So can they increase my % of scholarship by any means. They told me that this information won't change their offer :|

Its not necessarily a reject. I had applied in R3 and my interview invite came one week before the deadline and I got admitted on the day on the deadline( 31st March)
I asked them about the process and they mentioned that they keep reviewing the candidates that have submitted an application throughout the period..
So have faith and all the best

So just for the international applicants who are wondering what the hiring prospect will be after graduation, some of us did a little study from the spreadsheet published on its website and got some questions. I sent the career centre and email to inquire about it, below are the e-mail transcript:



Dear Weston Career Centre,

My name is XXX, and I am a Canadian international student who is joining Olin's full time MBA program this August.

I have been doing some research and data analysis on the international MBA student's employment situation. I looked at the stats from class of 2015 (latest one available), and it turned out only about 31 students got employed after their MBA program. However, given each class is about 142 people, and roughly 40% of them are international students, it looks like there were about 57 international students, which meant almost half of them were not employed after their master education. This seems very concerning, can you please shed some light on the numbers I am seeing, and also provide some international students employment statistics and WCC's observations? Thank you very much for your help!

Regards,
XXX


And the response is pasted below:

Hi XXX,

I can tell you that 97% of international MBA students who were seeking employment had jobs after graduating last year. I’m not sure where you got the 31 number from, but it’s important to remember that not all students are seeking employment after graduation. Some are sponsored so they return home, others continue their education and some simply do not respond to our outreaches, so we have no way of tracking where they land.

Best,


Jill

I would personally go to Olin, even just for the reputation.

I think the key is to always go to the best school that you can afford. Also, in new york, you go head to head with people from NYU and Columbia, with MIT and UPenn lurking in the surrounding area. Ultimately, you need to decide based on your career for the next 3 decades or even longer. Good luck.
