Dear Puys,I am a current student at BYU's MBA program , its also referred to often as the Marriott School.I am starting this thread as there have been many Indians who have asked questions , many of which are similar about BYU's MBA program . So, I believethat this will be a good place where answers to similar questions can be read by many students from India.I am briefing some of the facts given as answers. Feel free to ask additional questions.BYU as many of us can see in various publications such as businessweek and US news is a top-30 MBA program in US. As per Wall Street Journal its ranked no.1 amongst regional schools.The companies which regularly come to BYU and recruit are Dell, Honeywell, Cisco, Intel, Symantec ,WalMart , PwC, Western Union , Bank of America , Credit Suisse , Goldman Sachs and many others.The tuition at BYU is amongst the lowest of any top-30 MBA as its heavily subsidised by the LDS church towards all students irrespective of religion.People have asked questions about honor code of BYU in the past . Honor code is easy to follow especially for Indians as our culture is very similar to honor code ie staying away from tobacco ,alcohol on college premises and also not indulging in any inappropriate sexual conduct . The honor code is in place because the college is mainly supported by LDS church and they wantsome standards in place.The Indians students who have studied here often found funny when studentsasked if you had to be a church member to come here. The answer is obviously no. Most Indians who have come here in past have not been church members. They were Hindu , Muslim and all religions. But, anyone who is here is expected to follow the honor code.I guess I spoke a lot :)I throw it to you all for questions

Can you please let me know whether this WES evaluation is mandatory or not? Is there any possibility of a waiver in this regard? I am asking this because I do not think I would be able to get this evaluation done by 15th January.
