US B Schools Scholarship stories for Indians with 720+ GMAT score?  [#permalink]

Hello All

This is to all fellow Indians out there in this wonderful forum!

Has anyone here heard of or received a 40% or more than 40% scholarship to any of the top 25 B Schools in the US?
Putting this question here because:

1. US MBA from top 25 B Schools typically costs more than INR 1.5 Crore these days.
2. Assume one gets a 770+ score and tailors the resume and essays well (Scores <750 possible for a scholarship? )
3. Interview also goes well (We are all a hopeful lot!)

Now, Prodigy Finance offers 90% aid for Wharton and Columbia and 80% aid for most of the top 20 schools atleast.
Now, even on top of it, there is still a balance component that the student has to take (most probably from India). It still comes to around 17+ lakhs in all cases (except for Wharton and Columbia)

So, more the scholarship, the incremental decrease in such an Indian loan component. Stories of such scholarships will greatly help.

So is the only way to go about it is a collateral backed loan? Or is there any other way around it? Please find below my calculations (with 20% added on both tuition and cost of living), but the figures might be slightly outdated:

First Column: MBA from
Second Column: Cost of Tuition (Excluding Scholarship)
Third Column : Cost of Living
Fourth Column (and Fifth Column): Cost of Attendance (2 yrs)
Seventh Column: Indian Bank Loan of the Remaining Amount

Yale SOM (2 yr) 11172720 / 3985020 /15157740 /15157740 /12126192 /30,31,548
Carnegie Mellon (2 yr) 10452000 /3510000 /13962000 /13962000 /11169600 /27,92,400
Columbia (2 yr) 11700000 /4680000 /16380000 /16380000 /14742000 /16,38,000
Booth (2 yr) 10998000 /5148000 /16146000 /16146000 /12916800 /32,29,200
Kellogg (2 yr) 11232000 /4524000 /15756000 /15756000 /12604800 /31,51,200
Cornell (2 yr) 10342800 /4056000 /14398800 /14398800 /11519040 /28,79,760
Wharton (2 yr) 11949600 /5148000 /17097600 /17097600 /15387840 /17,09,760
MIT Sloan (2 yr) 12012000 /5304000 /17316000 /17316000 /13852800 /34,63,200

All suggestions, stories and inputs are welcome towards this!

Regards!

I am going to type a more thoughtful reply in the morning if you want, but just to put it out there, I had a near-full scholarship in UT Austin (top 15ish), a full ride at Foster (top 22ish). I got into Stern too but never negotiated, because I had my mind set for Ann Arbor.

Alright, so

2. The scholarship you mentioned (and by extension available for the selected) is typically only on one year's tuition fee for an amount say X or is applicable for both years (X+X) for 2 years' fees?
3. Congrats! (very late, but no mean feat either Im guessing), but you still would've had an Indian component to pay off at the end of your Ann Arbor journey?

Hey guys, I'm sorry, my query might be little inappropriate in this post. As I'm new and not having much idea on how scholarship works, I am posting my doubt here.

I wanted to know whether we have a different stage or level with different deadlines to apply for scholarship or it should be chosen at the time of MBA application submission.

Can anyone please provide me the info or links where I can get some good info?

Hi kavya,

Your query is a bit subjective as the process is different for each school

Having said that, a large number of US B-Schools have scholarship essays that are a part of the primary application form and need to be submitted at the time of Application submission. It is recommended that you check the website of the schools you are interested in order to gain the exact information.

Thanks

All the best!
