3. Are scholarship offerings renewable? Schools that offer scholarships usually allow students to use them for both years of a full-time MBA program, but not always, says Evelyn Tate, director of graduate recruitment and admissions at the D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University.
At D’Amore-McKim, where about 600 students apply for the full-time MBA program and about 30 percent are admitted, the scholarships are renewable, she says.
If a school offers applicants one-year scholarships, Tate suggests they contact the admissions office and push for it to cover two years.
“If you don’t ask, then you’re not going to get a renewed scholarship,” she says.
