I'm looking for some insight on my situation...

I'm local to the georgetown area, and am contemplating between part time and full time. My company won't give me a significant raise if I receive this degree while working part time. So I am trying to figure out if it's really worth killing myself going part time while still working or not getting paid and going full time. However, I would ideally like to leave the DC area, and I'm not sure how good Georgetown's recruiting is for New EnglandNYC or the west coast which are the two areas I'd like to move to.

I need to identify a school that is more a safety than the top 10-12 I am applying to.. and this one seems like the obvious because a) I won't have to move, b) my husband can keep his job, c) I won't have to sell my condo/find renters.

Hehe, jlola we're like the same person. We're applying to a lot of the same schools, both in DC, both considering GTown part-time. Right now, I'm deciding if I really want to break down and do the application or if I should wait to hear from my full-time schools that will let me know before the Jan 9th part-time deadline.

My company definitely won't give me a raise either, but I'm not sure where I want to end up post-MBA. I do want to change fields so I'm not sure if going part-time GTown will let me do that either.

We're in the same boat :?

lol I wonder if we work for the same company too!

I'm with you, I'm going to wait to see what happens before I start doing the application. But not knowing exactly what I'm doing for a plan B is stressing me out. I'm thinking changing fields while part time would be really difficult. Plus can we even use their career services and go to recruiting events if we go part-time?

The new building seems to be shaping up well. Thanks for the pics.

So any thoughts on when we will begin to hear about decisions?

I applied R2, heard back in March? Don't hold me to that though as that whole application process has become a blur.

The pace of the classes and amount of coursework keep you so busy that it drives out whatever memory/knowledge you had prior :twisted:

Thanks for the pics Obeny81, it definitely looks like it's going to be a lot better than the Car Barn and being closer to the rest of the campus should be interesting.

Thanks for the pics of the new building, it looks friggin' sweet!

From what I understand, the decisions are all released on the same day. So, if you applied in R1, you'll find out on January 12th.

Looks like we got our answer. Even though I knew decisions wouldn't come out today, I had a hope in the back of my head. Oh well, gonna be a long weekend of waiting!

I think I read somewhere that it's Monday morning at 9am. Although, I could be imagining that.

I have no other knowledge, but I think you're spot on. I figure we'll get an email at some point tomorrow morning EST, but we may catch our status changes earlier than that. Based on watching other threads, some people see a status change to ding/wl/admit before they get an email.

According to the BW forums, there are no phone calls, just an email about a status change.
