Tippie grants application fee waivers to strong candidates. These waivers allow a candidate to apply without paying the typical application fee of $60 (domestic) or $100 (international).
We define “strong candidates” as those who meet or exceed our class profile averages. These individuals typically have:
- A strong work background (at least 2 years of experience in a professional environment, ideally with promotions or increasing responsibility)
- Career goals in line with the Tippie program’s strengths
- The ability to succeed academically (measured by a GMAT score that is strong as compared to the average score for your peer group; see below for averages).
Average GMAT in 2012 for:
- Indian candidates: 704
- Chinese candidates: 690
- Domestic candidates: 650
To be considered for a waiver, please email your resume (2 pages maximum), GMAT score, and a short statement (one paragraph) of your post-MBA career goals to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that we are not able to review your fee waiver request without a GMAT score. Our team will review your information and respond within 3 to 5 business days.
