Scholarships in US for MBA

About this group
Hi, I was wondering if there is any info available on scholarship details for B-schools in the US. What is the general % of tuition waiver available for the schools? Are there schools offering 100% scholarships? If yes, which schools and what ...

Thanks for the heads-up..
This info will surely help us...

So the US cosigner should not bear any additional responsibilities or problems, right?

On second thought, we need to go to US to apply for the loan right? Probably once we get an admit? Wat do you say?

Thanks!
But if I take a co-signer from USA, the rate should be lower (based on his credit history), right?

Could you please tell me about the other options available for funding (i.e. sources of loan besides Citibank) in USA? I have a USA co-signer.


I am not an expert on this but with a cosigner the rate should go down for sure but all the banks are about the same in rates and out to skin you alive. I know that few schools are good about taking care of the international students. I was at admit weekend at Michigan this past week and I talked to an Indian student who decided to come to Michigan because the availability of loan and decent rates.

There are other banks like Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase et al. However, once you are accepted ask each school for a guide and they will try to help you. I know that rates might differ between schools. Overall, better the school the lower rates should be. So try your best!

The loan rates are LIBOR/Prime + x% and it is a variable rate for most student loans. The + X% depends on the school and your credit history (which you will have none). Right now, the prime rate is around 3.25% but rising b/c 10 year Treasury rates went up in the latest auction. Plus given if you are an international, they would do anything to increase the margin so the rates can be anywhere between 8-12% which is ridiculous.

Yes, but very few.
That's why I asked about the possibility of loans in US.

Any Federal government backed loans are for US citizens and permanent residents (green card) only. Plus you need to qualify based on your financial status. International students are totally shafted in this regard, so you need a cosigner to get a loan at better rates.

Merit scholarship might be the only way right now and you need to kill the GMAT in high 700's for it.

You can opt for loans.. provided you have a co-signor with a very good and stable background. These loans are good becoz you gt loans for a period of 10-15 years at very low interest rates bout 4-4.5 % interest. Whereas in Indian banks give maximum of 20 Lacs loan with bout 10% Interest n pay back period is about 5-7 years...
If you have a strong co-signor nothing like it.



How to apply for loans with a co-signor? I mean is it a bank loan or private funding from someone..Also is it necessary that the person should be a relative..Can business associates be co-signors??
And if we apply this sort of a loan than should this info be put on our visa application??
