NYU part time vs Georgetown? Or do I have a chance to get FT [#permalink] New post 10 Dec 2010, 10:43
Could really use some help. I currently am deciding to apply for NYU or just apply to NYU part time. I started my own successful marketing business 5 years ago, GMAT 640 Q72% V66%, GPA 3.5. I am unable to apply to both PT and full time and was wondering if it is worth trying for full time and if I don’t get in wait 5 months to apply to PT. My second question which program would position me best to get a consulting job in new York city- Part time NYU or going full time Georgetown?
I would really appreciate any feedback..

Let me answer your second question, which will then lead to your first question.

Part-time programs typically do not offer a significant advantage to career switchers. In your case it'll be even harder for you, because you've owned your own business, so while it may indeed be very successful, your resume does not have any recognizable corporate "brandnames" that a recruiter might potentially find attractive.

At the same time, Georgetown's full-time program is hardly the best diving board to use for a career in consulting. Don't quote me on this, but I'm fairly certain that some of the top 10-15 firms don't even recruit there.

To summarize: go full-time now, if a job in mainstream management consulting is what you want.

What you have going for you: a good GPA, and entrepreneurial experience that is attractive to some schools like Haas, Sloan, and Tuck.

What you have going against you: you may already be over the median age, your GMAT score could be higher.

^^^its not only difficult its impossible, without looking at the other applicants we cant make any attempt at guessing accurately. At the end of the day whats the point to that stat for you? if i say 25% will you be sad? what if I say 85%? If you made me give you number id say less than 20%, that GMAT is a killer for NYU.

If you want consulting fin NY from g-town, thats going to be tough, NYU crushes G-town in that regard.
At G-town all but the top 3 firms (MBB) recruit on campus, however people graduating this year have all secured job in big MC. Its self sourced and not by any means easy. That said, those people are ending up in and around the DC area. There are other schools that will give you a leg up on consulting in NY (not MBB).

G-town is a great school, but it kinda just flys in out of nowhere. It is not a good fit for your goals.

With NYU full time I assumed that my chance of getting in were very low around 5 to 10% but if it was even close to 20% I would definitely want to send my application in. Would u think it is closer 5% or 20%? Also, does anyone know how difficult is it to find a internship while going to PT NYU?
