This post is in reply to the query mailed to me by cognizant_81. hope u wouldn't mind me sharing this one since it will be helpful to all pugys.:cheerio:

Total fees for schulich mba in india ( i.e. 6 months in india and 10 months in toronto) would be around $47000 CAD. You would have to maintain an addition budget for your flight ticket and living expense. As per my experience, I would suggest jet airways since they gave me a student package wherein i could take free additional baggage. It was a one hop flight via Brussels. Group discounts are also available to get cheap tickets. For living my budget came upto a $1000 a month in canada. You can budget it between $750- $1600.

Scholarships are available at entrance and during the course. Its based on your academic excellence and financial need. I cannot give you a scholarship figure that you could get based on your profile at this very moment since it would depend on your classmates profile as well . Bursaries are available throughout the course. See attached pdf document on list of awards/scholarships.
In addition you can also be paid by assisting a professor in her/his research. Student can work on campus on their study permit without the requirement of work permit. The York university campus is HUGE with umpteen opportunities York University

Angad, a query I have is, the Academic History requires our university to directly mail the transcripts to Canada. Not sure if the ones in India do this? Can you also throw some light on this issue? Also I see that Schulich has changed the web applications portal..

@ indian_scouser

Hi there, in that case get your original transcripts and send it to schulich ( courier/in person/). Make sure the sealed envelope has the university stamp on it.

Yes your right, the web application portal now is more robust. Make sure you answer all the questions before hitting the submit button.
