The time period taken to complete the degree is set by the university, not by the embassy.

Typically Indian citizens are given 5 years student visa (F-1) to complete your MBA (or MS). Usually "D/S" (Duration of Status) will be stamped on at US Port of Entry. D/S means that your F-1 is valid till the length of your course or 5 years, whichever is earlier.

Your F-1 visa is linked to your school. So if you change your school, you need to get new i-20 and apply to Visa again or Visa transfer.

Unrelated, but few of my classmates from China and Pakistan told me that their F-1 student visa was valid for only 1 year, and they had to go back to their respective countries in summer to get it renewed.

At this point, not sure why are you worrying about your visa duration. Regardless, Good luck!

Hi

I know that this is a board for visa rules and regulations but before I get to that hurdle, I need to know if it is possible to get financial assistance to do an MBA in Atlanta. So any information on financial aid/scholarships/loans would be much appreciated.

I'm a south african citizen with a bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering and soon to have a bachelor of commerce degree in business management. I have 4 years experience on a power plant as a site engineer.

Check the websites of the schools. Generally private schools have more assistance than public ones.

Theodore,

Your best bet is to score way above the average GMAT score of your target Business School. This would not only make you a stronger candidate but also increase your chances of getting a scholarship.

As a part of your scholarship you may be given a Graduate Assistant that would further help you financially.
Outside of that, try searching for MPowerFinancing.com they say they provide loans to international student without US Cosigner or collateral.

There are only a few accredited MBA programs in Atlanta, so you can probably ask them directly. I know that Emory alone has a number of full-tuition scholarships, including the Woodruff Scholarships, the Goizueta Scholars program, and more. I'm sure Scheller and Robinson have nice scholarship award packages as well.

Of course these kinds of awards will go to extraordinary candidates with very unique qualities. Yes, a higher than average GMAT score helps, but you'd have to have something else very unique about your profile as well...
