Hi! I just got admitted to McDonough School of Business. But did not get any scholarship. I already have a govt job here (approx 50k in hand per month) and now I am being counselled against leaving my govt job here and going out and spending approx 80k dollars per year for 2 years. Am being told that job scenario is not good for Indians over there with preference being given to local students. I was thinking of a career in consulting. Please guide. Other option am thinking of is a lower ranked Canada college like York schulich etc with higher scholarship chances lowering my risks.
Students already in Mcdonough telling me it IS tough job situation for indian students over there right now. Please guide.

I am looking forward to a career move to Project Management,Infra Policy Mgt. or Consulting role.
I am aiming to do a executive MBA (1 Year) from top Indian Institutes like IIM A,B &C .Look to appear for GMAT in Nov 2015.
(MBA from abroad is doubtful due to high expenditure involved.)
Kindly Clarify if the above move is feasible.

I'm planning to do my MBA from US and I'm targetting Fall 2015 session. I have a GMAT score of 620. My profile:
Xth - 85%
XIIth - 94%.
I'm an SRCC graduate and I have also completed M.com through correspondence.
Work Experience - 40 months.
I'm a little apprehensive because it is a huge investment and Visa also expires if we don't find a job within 6 months. How is the scope of MBA Finance in US? Do you think MBA from Tier II university is worth it? Also, could you please suggest me the best colleges for my profile.
