Part time programs - do I stand a chance? [#permalink] New post 15 Apr 2010, 10:39
I am a 28 year old Indian female with the following profile. I would like some insight as to my chance for a part time program in Booth, Ross and Kellogg....

GMAT - 670 V35, Q 47, AWA 5.5 overall 85th percentile
Undergrad GPA-3.9
Grad GPA (M.S in Engineering) - 4.0
Work Experience: 5 years

Certifications: PMP, Six Sigma Black Belt, Business Communication
Awards: Close to 10 distinguished awards for excellence from the company I am working at...got a personal letter of appreciation from the CIO of my company (~6000 associates)

Extra-curricular: PM Mentor at the local chapter, Volunteer for a commission at the office of the Mayor

Promotions: None...stuck in the same role due to immigration application! But within my role have been promoted 2 levels in 5 years...need to wait one more year to hit the top level in my role.

Leadership activities in my role: day-in-day out dealing with people!

Current Industry: IT

My research: I started my research for my master degree and have published 5 papers so far. My goal is to take that research to the next level. I have found a new way to achieve a goal in my research and am working on a patent application. I am also planning to start a company to market my idea and fund my research.

Why MBA? I don't have any experience putting together a business and closing deals...now that I have reached this far, I need an MBA to take me through this dream

Why now? I have been busy figuring out more about my research and just now attained a stage where I can concentrate on the business perspective.

I am not planning to apply until Summer 2011...by then I can shore up more 'Women in Leadership' type of opportunities...

Does my application stand a chance for part-time programs in Booth, Ross and Kellogg?

Hello,

If you can also convincingly answer the "Why a part-time MBA?" question, then I think you will have a decent shot at a top-ranked part-time program. Many applicants don't have a realistic sense of what apart-time programs can do for them: for example, many applicants say they want a PT MBA to switch careers, and then are disappointed that they don't have recruiters coming to them while they're in the program. If your goals are a good fit with what a PT program can provide -- more along the lines of helping you move up at your current job / in your current industry, and less along the lines of helping you move into an entirely new career -- then I think you will be competitive at these schools.

Good luck!
Scott
