GMAT for PR


allarakha

Hi,
I am currently residing in India and working since 3 last years at a government company (Regulatory authority; Nuclear field; Qualification: B:E Chemical eng) and earning $1000 per month. I want to switch carrier by doing MBA (India or Abroad). I have a excellent academic background. Recently, i got engaged and she is at Virginia,USA. I have accepted the proposal of going to USA and settle there with her. Now, i am planning to do MBA there. In this regard I have the following doubts,
1.Do I have to give GMAT as I will be PR after marriage.
2.Until i get admission for MBA, will I get working visa for doing part time job.
3.Does I will be getting scholarship as a PR of US, I am not financially sound.
4. Good colleges in and around Virginia

Is my decision 4 going to US is good and whether i will find a job der??

If a school requires you to take the GMAT, it will require it for everybody: citizens, permanent residents, etc.

As far as I know, you won't need a work visa if you already have permanent residency status.

You can apply for US government loans if you're a permanent resident. Scholarships will depend on a lot of things - usually they're only awarded to students with specific backgrounds, exceptional work experience, etc.

The best MBA programs in Virginia:

Darden
George Mason
College of William and Mary
Virginia Tech
University of Richmond

Yep Its a not madatory for colleges. The word is "paid." Now...You cannot apply for a work visa. If you are going to work part time or do an internship, you employer must do the applying, then there is paper work for you too.
Scholarships for foreign students are extremely scarce and very competitive. Remember, you would be competing against the best student from all over the world for aid.

Thanks Jayashree..
I could not understand the sentence ''The word is "paid." Now...'' in your reply.
Since, I would be getting permanent resident of US once i marry my fiance and then i will study for MBA, will I still be consider as an international student for scholarship ??? or as par with US citizen.

This person has given you bad advice.

If you have permanent residency, this means you are entitled to work and you don't have to get an additional work visa.

And as a permanent resident, you would generally have the same access to scholarships as citizens (although check with the individual schools you are applying to, because the might have specific stipulations.) Although they are still going to be competitive.
