Hi Tepper Adcom,

Thanks for providing this Q&A service. I am an international student and may have a question with regards to funding.

1) Does Tepper provide a loan to international applicants without US co-signer? If yes, what are the terms and conditions (rate, cap, average amount).

2) On what basis do you evaluate allocation of scholarships?

3) I associate Tepper as enclave of quantitative engineers (class profile, courses, career interests). Does Tepper intend to rely on its current strength or reach out to people from non traditional background with other career goals? Please correct me if I have the wrong impression, I am willing to be educated.
