What are some ways other than loans and scholarships to finance your MBA? I’m thinking GA positions, maybe being a freshman studies mentor, etc. Do you think the financial aid office would be able to help me out with finding these open positions?

Paid fellowships and TA positions are another option. Some people have also done paid in semester internships. Yes, I think your FinAid Office should be able to help!

From what I’ve heard, they usually cover a few classes/ credits right?
