It all depends on which school you apply to. Harvard won't be interested in you, but there many schools which need students.

However I'm not an expert in scholarships. Again it depends on the school. Do not apply to schools where there are scholarships are scarce or only merit based, because you won't proably get any. Look for those with scholarships based on needs or on skills, like those sponsored by firms and awarded by an essay about leadership, innovation, etc. For example Cranfield has lots of scholarships for 14k GBP or 50% of the tuition fee. In addition they do not have an application fee.

Think that few students pay the full tuition fees, and if they do so, it's just because they can pay them (i.e. they are loaded). The trick is that the official tuition fees is only paid by those organizations who sponsor the student (his/her company, regional scholarships, etc, ...). INSEAD is the only (as far as I know) b-school that openly recognizes this situation.

In sum, shortlist b-schools which are not in the top ten and research about their scholarships schemes. Than apply to them.

Here are some: Cranfield, Lancaster, Manchester, Hult (this is craving for students now), Imperial College, Cass, Vlerick, RSM, Ashridge, Henley, ...

Bye.

Hi mba_applicant,
I work with Hult and we'd definitely be interested in your application. As mba_pursuer mentioned, we've expanded our MBA program a lot in the past couple of years, mainly by adding new campuses in London, Dubai and Shanghai in addition to the Boston campus, so we're able to accept many more applicants than previously. The September 09 intake is filling up, but there are still some spots, or if you're looking to apply later then you've got a good chance.

Here's more info on financial aid on the website:

And on fees:

Please feel free to call us up or live chat from the site if you have specific financial aid/scholarship questions.

Hi there,
Generally, with your GPA, GMAT and work profile, I think you'd be a more competitive candidate at schools such as (in the US) Babson, Boston U, Thunderbird, Arizona State, Rochester and Georgetown, or (non US) Cranfield, HEC, York, McGill, Manchester. You'd have a better shot at acceptance + scholarship at those schools. Good luck!
