Hi linzhouu

Even I was concerned but the overall placement rate is good (96%) and that must include internationals also... moreover my indian interviewer said he had 3 job offers... so must be nice

I talked to some seniors there....they told me that international students need to do a lot of networking and make contacts with people to land the right job. But at the end of the day it's your determination and career path which matters.

Hello linzhouu and everyone else,

I have couple of financing-related questions:
1. I was reviewing the admissions package and I noticed that Olin provides International Loan product that may cover only tuition. So I presume we (and especially students with family) should look for some other sources to cover costs for living.
I have limited personal savings, so I wonder whether there is a loan opportunity to cover living costs while studying at Olin MBA program?

2. I see that by Feb 2014, school will send estimates on the total cost and we must submit the DCOF form to Olin.
If I am offered a scholarship from Olin, where can I indicate it on this form? Source specified as "Other" looks like a good fit, but I am not sure.

If you are currently based in india then many banks do give education loans for abroad studies which covers cost of living too.

Yes, but I guess the maximum amount of educational loan which a bank provides here is around 30 lakhs.

Any R1 applicant having a problem with the enrolment decision link?


Hi.

I had the same problem, so I sent an e-mail to Evan.
He gave me a new link and the problem solved completely.
