Expert's post
You should have a good shot at these part time programs. The part time program stats are not counted when the rankings boards figure up their rank, so they can sometimes be more forgiving of GMAT score and GPA. Your scores and GPA are fine, but might be more of a challenge if applying to these schools' full time programs. if you get good recomendations, write compelling essays, and have a clear vision for why you need the MBA now and what you will do with it after school, you will have a shot. Good Luck.
