Applying to Part Time Booth and Kellogg after FT Dings [#permalink] New post 16 Dec 2009, 08:32
I have been trying to get into the FT program at Booth since last year, where I was waitlisted, dinged in September, and reapplied for 2010 and was just dinged again. I was also dinged from Kellogg last year but did not bother reapplying in 2010.

At this point, after accepting a new job in Chicago, I would like to just begin with a part time program, and will be evaluating both.

It seems that the Univ of Chicago application is very similar to the FT essays from last year. I wish I had taken Rose up on the offer to transition directly to the PT program when I was on the waitlist, but too late now I guess. What are your thoughts on re-using the same essays from a prior app, since the questions are the same?

Is there anything you can say about the differences in competition level between the FT and Part Time programs? I have a 710 GMAT, 3.5 GPA from Penn State, and 5 years strong work experience in corporate finance and treasury.

The deadline for Booth's spring quarter application is Jan 8th. I think I can get this done in the next few weeks - your thoughts?

Sorry for the dings. I can imagine what you're going through. I was in a similar situation as you. None of my FT apps materialized last year but I was offered a PT position at a top school, that I declined.

If you work in Chicago, then a PT program might be your call.

For Booth, and most other schools, it is easier to get into a PT program compared to a FT one. This is especially true for finance applicants. Most PE/VC/IB type of guys tend to apply to full-time schools, so in PT you will not be facing with his type of competition.

I would advice against it, unless there's nothing new you can write.

Also, is there a way you can get in touch with Rose and tell her you are open to PT program. Chances are if she was willing to take you into PT program last year, she'll do it again.

I think the average GMAT is around 690 for PT Booth. In general, the acceptance rate is about double the FT acceptance rate.

I would not use the same exact essays. You should write it. Since reusing looks like you're lazy.
