I'm sorry if this has been mentioned, but I can't seem to see it anywhere.

This is for people starting in 2013, not 2014?

Hi dogie,

The scholarship prizes are each composed of a GMAT Course, Admissions Consulting Package, and $250 GMAT voucher. Applicants must be planning to apply in either 2014 or 2015.

Regards,

Sorin

Hi! Does that mean that if I have already been accepted (starting my MBA in September 2013) I'm not eligible?

Thanks!

Good catch, Martin. The previous answer should have been "eligible for 2014 or 2015" - my apologies for the confusion. Since the scholarship prizes are a GMAT course + an MBA Admissions Consulting package, those folks who have already been accepted will most likely not need those services.

Regards,

Sorin

Note: I went ahead and edited my previous answer to remove the confusion.

I know I may seem dense but I just want to fully understand. When you say "eligible for 2014 or 2015" does this mean applying for admissions in 2014 or 2015, or beginning the application process? I'm planning to apply Round 1 this year(2013) for admissions in 2014. Am I eligible to participate for the scholarship?

Hi vlinares,

Thanks for reaching out. You would be applying for admissions in 2014, so that makes you eligible for the 2013 BTG Scholarship.

Good luck,

Sorin

Thanks,

I've already taken my gmat (700+) and would like the opportunity to work with admission consultants if I win the package. I know I will not be needing/utilizing the whole package so does that make me less qualified candidate? Thanks.

I'd like to apply for 2014 Fall semester. The application will start in September 2013. I need to have my Gmat score no latter than December 1, 2013. Am I eligible?

I had some difficulties submitting the application for some reason. Is there an alternative way? Thanks.
