Kath,Hjort......I'm just curious to know whether the GMAT score makes a difference if u r applying to a part time or full time program?? Interesting to note is the fact that a friend (distant) of mine was accepted at Carnegie Mellon ,but later on she got into Chicago GSB, which was quite a jump, considering the rankings of these schools........am a lil baffled by such instances
It's not surprising to me at all.
A GMAT score makes a difference in both full-time or part-time programs. It plays less of a role in EMBA admissions.
REgarding your friend, the fact that CMU admitted your friend does not imply that your friend is not a good candidate for Chicago. Chicago is not looking at the app and saying, "This candidate was accepted at CMU and therefore is not for us." IT probably didn't know that your friend had been accepted. to CMU. It looks at each application holistically and compares it to other applications while considering the desired make-up of a class.
