rahmed said:I have the same questions.
UoP is an expensive but great school. But they stipulated that anybody on a non-immigrant visa must show a BanK Statement/ approved Bank loan of the amount $200,000 along with the application documents. As I am on non-immigrant visa (H-4) obviously I have no means to raise that kind of money or find a guranteer. Hence I could not apply to UoP program. I feel this to be a subtle discriminatory process in favor of US citizen or GC holder applicants precluding someone on non-immigrant visa to apply for the program (unless someone comes from a very affluent background and have acess to that kind of personal funding!).
Does anyone come across a solution to get round this problem? Or, if any SDN member out there applied to UoP with similar (non-immigrant) visa status kindly provide an input, it will be of great help for the future applicants.
Thanks dr_mini. I never called the school and lost the chance to apply to the program!!!. I shall remember your advice in future.dr_mini said:Hi Rahmed,
I am also on a student visa , I was also in doubt about the bank statment , so i emailed warren before applying and he informed me that
there is no need to provide the bank statement with the application ,but if u r accepted in the program u have to submit the bank statement in 2 or 3 weeks .
In future u have such doubts ,just email or call the school.
