Personally I would not even attend.
For MBAs - anything outside of T25 is not worth it. Some may even make a case for T50 - as a long stretch. Tbh - I had no idea what “Andrews University” was, let alone know if they had an okay MBA program.
You are likely to face quite a bit of employment issues after graduating as an international student. I suggest taking a GMAT/GRE and aiming for a better school. Even if they might not have a good MBA program, but at least a good/known Uni name.

SC1 that’s easy to say as an American. But for many people who live outside of the states (and a Western European country), coming to the United States for an education is a dream. Any opportunity here is better than any opportunity back home, where corruption is rampant / opportunity is limited and people don’t care as much as our education

AA do you have it in writing about your scholarship? Are you able to call the school via WhatsApp or have someone in the US call for you? I can call for you if you need help, you can DM me details

When you self-cancel a GMAT score on test day, do the schools you send a later test score to ever see that you took the test before more than once? Asking because the student unofficial score report shows that you self-canceled and wondering what it looks like on the other side for schools receiving official report.
