@Adi_RedDevil Thanks for the scholarship tip .. guess GMAT is the only thing one has control on ...
Basically, defer for you means a shot at more scholarship .. right ?

No plans to defer as of now .. waiting for other results ..

Good profile. You hav e diverse exp and hence u can tlk a lot. Mine is somewhat similar to yours
GMAT - 650/6.0
TOFEL - 114
Wrk Ex - 3.4yrs (6 awards, 2 at India level, 5 client appreciation, devised process for the client tat saved abt 75% on resource spending, led team of 3 on 2 projects, wrked on independent and team modules). Telecomm domain certifications. Currently pursuing 2 business related
Extra curricular - Consultant to NGO (Increased their sponsors and improving their processes and brand.) AT university - Chairman of IEEE, Sponsorship head of national techical fest, Training and Placement Co-ordinator, won many prizes in technical competitions, CR. GPA: 3.9/4

Well, what I have heard from other fellow applicants and present students... scholarship depends a lot on ur GMAT score and yrs of wrk exp. Say a university has a 80% range GMAT score as 600-700.. a score of 710 will get you atleast 50% (wrst case) with a very simple profile or a wrk exp of 8-9yrs.

There is an option to defer the admit when you go to the enrollment link that they have provided to confirm your status on GWU. R u planning to defer?
