Initially I thought of retaking GMAT and then apply to top US Bschools but I came across few things that makes me doubt over applying in TOP schools for MBA even if I get 750+. these are :
1) The tution fees are huge of the order 50 lac and the scholarship amount in top schools are nominal. In that case for loan I need a U.S co-signer which I dont have.
2) Also there is a requirement of mortgauge or guarenter if I take loan of full amount from India.This too is not possible for me.
In that case, please suggest which schools I can apply that gives almost 50% or higher scholarship and good placements as well , I think those schools will be bellow in rank and for them 700 is good. Please let me know what should I do..
