    Hi Cory,

    I have a full time MBA offer from Rotman. After pursuing my engineering from India, I worked for a couple of years in South Korea and then in the UK. Because I never worked in India, I don’t have a credit/banking history in India.

    I applied for a loan from Prodigy and secured a partial funding. I also have savings earmarked for my MBA.

    I am still short of $ 54k. I do not have a co-signer, neither in Canada nor in India. Are you aware of any other international organisation who might provide me loan?

    Many thanks!

    Hi Cory. Have you ever heard of MBA students with families getting on WIC or some other form of welfare during their MBAs? Is that possible? It could help lower your debt if you can pay for a lot of cost of living stuff with welfare.
