many, students change their minds about grad school mid-way through college.
you'll also have a better understanding of your field and of academic research then.

Well, I've already given some thought to it sometime back, just wanted to know whether its possible to do one without work experience. At least, it allows me to prioritize my goals =)

Today Econ, top MBA from Harvard etc get ppl that apply without experience.
They also do accept exceptional applicants, read they often take 1 or 2 students at most.
These ppl very high profile, are the minority in the Uni Finance program managing 6 figure funds or some kind of Entrepreneur in a biz that caught their eye etc.

depending on major, some don't even award terminal masters!!! only when U drop out by failing qualifying exams do U get a masters.

for scholars they do take adv of the 4yr duration. I think they can extend for 1 semester if I am not wrong.

those not on scholarship Smart Local bend the system, apply for Phd to get aid from the Uni. since the attrition rates are high, upon finding jobs they just gracefully drop out! Thanking the Uni for the tuition and $$ they are granted!

patryn33, thanks for your list here and in the overseas section.

I looked at some of the universities here:

Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering is no longer offering full tuition scholarships to every incoming student.

http://www.olin.edu/admission/costs.asp

"There has been an important change in our scholarship policy. Olin was founded on the premise that financial considerations should not stand in the way of an excellent engineering education. That has not changed. Olin is committed to providing a merit scholarship to every student we accept. However, due to the ongoing economic downturn, Olin must reduce its full-tuition scholarship by 50 percent beginning in the 2010-11 academic year."

There's a LDS member who chose to go BYU instead of a MAS scholarship to Cornell/Georgetown: http://www.linkedin.com/in/andrewwoo
