Chances at these two part-time programs? [#permalink] New post 01 Apr 2012, 11:28
I'm targeting both Ross and Tepper part-time.

I graduated from a top 60 state school with a low undergraduate gpa of 3.18. I studied Economics.

I then went on to work for a Fortunate 500 company with nearly 4 years of work experience for this company split evenly between an account rep and analyst role.

I then decided to go back to school full-time to pursue a M.S. in International Economics and Finance at a decent private school in the midwest. I graduated with a 3.93, top of my class.

Recently, I just hired on at a different Fortune 500 company but within the same industry as an account rep with similar responsibilities as before.

My plan on applying is about 2-3 years from now. I need to take on some leadership roles at this company, because I think I need some improvement in that area of my application. So, I'm hoping 2-3 years gives me a big enough of a window to showcase this.

However, I do need to hit a good gmat score. I was thinking somewhere around 670 to give me a good chance at either school part-time. Would anyone agree? Or would I be hopeless even with that score?

If you were able to score a 660+ on the GMAT or better and bring everything to the table in your application (essays, EC's, rec letters, etc) I think you have a great shot at both. Part-time programs are generally easier to get into b/c they draw from smaller applicant pools within approx a 200 mile radius of the schools (as opposed to everywhere in the country). Also, the part time program rankings are actually different: deactivated-account-unbelievable-atrocious-130022.html and as you can see, they aren't as competative as full time programs. You are starting the process very early, and I think if you make some strategic moves to better your application, I really think you will get in :) Good luck!

I think a 660+ should be good.

Do you live near Pittsburgh or Detroit? If you're going for an evening program, it is important that you stay local.
