My name is Sagar Chitrakar, and I’m a graduate of Architecture from Institute of Engineering at Tribhuwan University in Kathmandu, Nepal and I was accepted into the Columbia, Washington-St.Louis and Michigan Taubman for Masters in Architecture program in the Fall of 2013.
Columbia says that the program does not offer a need-based financial scholarships to international students and is only limited to US Citizens and Permanent Residents and I was not offered any financial assistance and so was the case for Michigan. But on the other hand University of Washington provided a generous amount of scholarship, 50% of the tuition fee (USD$22,000). As amazing as it sounds, I had to pay rest of the money and then add up bills for logistics which went around USD 100,000. ( 22,000 x 3 years = 66,000 + logistics)
Never having applied to any US education institution before, I was not aware about my next steps as an accepted student without any financial aid provided to me and here I am with the same question.
Please do give me an insight on what my next step should be.
yikes! $USD 100,000 is a heck lot of money in Nepal.. Gotta ask yourself if its worth it in the end if you just plan on having a career in Nepal.
USD 100,000 is a heck lot of money not just for Nepalese.
hey accesskb what about other institutes like upenn , gtech ,utaustin. are international students eligible for need based scholarship?
also wanted to know how is WashingtonU st Louis.is it more of a artsy school or a para metrics driven school?
