    Share your grades, SAT, SAT II, AP, A Level, etc... results with us. And what do you mean by "cheap"? You are way too vague. We need more info.

    Unfortunately, money for tuition is a significant factor for many students in selecting a college; but it shouldn't be your only consideration. Nevertheless, consider the undergraduate business school at Baruch College/City University of New York. Be forewarned, Baruch is highly competitive. Also think about the Whittemore College of Business at the University of New Hampshire.

    James Madison University, in Virginia. They have an outstanding business program and you're 2 hours away from Washington D.C. where employers love to hire JMU grads (especially international students) at very high salaries. DC is a great job market for young people with int'l experience.

    My Average GPA: 3.7 (unweighted)
    SAT: aiming for 2000...
    SAT II: MATh II C, Spanish, Chinese (All aim for 700 or above)
    AP: WIll have 6 APs in total. Aiming for all 4 and above score.
    Well, cheap as in...i hope the total cost can be within 30,000 or around there? or unis that offer a lot of scholarship for int'l students =)
    thanks!!!

    $30,000/year or for all 4 years? $30,000 year will get you quite a few good schools, including Indiana University-Bloomington, which has a good Business school.

    Vanderbilt

    Doesnt Rice use their endowment to reduce tuition by a wide margin? Also, William & Mary is a private school experience at a public price. One of the best values anywhere, esp in state.
  • blackeyedsusanblackeyedsusan Posts: 2,382Registered User Senior Member
    Yes, Rice's tuition is significantly less than its peer institutions. It does not provide financial aid to internationals, though, although there is a merit scholarship designated specifically for international students.

    I don't understand the suggestion by palmettotree of Vanderbilt. How is Vanderbilt cheap?

    I don't know how their business program is, but Truman State University is supposedly ranked really high for being affordable, and what you get for your money.

    As an international student, privates may be the cheapest option for you. Especially if you're willing to go down a tier for merit money.
