NYU Stern Weekend Commute [#permalink]
20 Jun 2013, 12:10
I have recently been admitted to NYU Stern Part-Time, which all along has been my top choice since it's the top part-time program in a somewhat commutable distance, I won't have to relocate and can keep working to pay off my debt. That said, I live in Baltimore and would have to commute to New York City for class almost every weekend. While I'm not as concerned about the financial cost of the commute (about $3,500 annually), I am a bit concerned about my sanity and quality of life over the next three years. Has anyone out there dealt with a similar commuting situation for a part-time MBA program, or know anyone who has? I'd love to know your thoughts on this.
And in case any of you are wondering, I live and work literally five minutes from University of Maryland's part-time MBA campus in Baltimore, but have ruled it out due to being incredibly unimpressed on each of my four visits.
Thanks in advance for any insightful feedback!
