Hello all,
First of all, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I stumbled upon this forum while doing research for part-time MBA. I have been reading people's opinions and whatnot constantly for past two days or so. Finally, I wanted to ask you pros about what sort of chances I have and provide me some feed back. Anything would be very appreciated and helpful.

- Demographics:
23 yrs (soon to be 24), Indian by birth, but raised in US

- Education:
Undergrad: BS, Nuclear Engineering at NC State University, GPA 3.3. One of the top Nuke Eng universities in the nation
Grad: Masters, Nuclear Engineering at NC State University, GPA ~3.1 (Achieved it while working Full-time)
Passed Fundamentals of Engineering Exam

GMAT 650

- Work experience:
2.5 years at a premier Nuclear Engineering firm (Nuclear Engineer)
Worked on Masters while working fulltime
3 months Nuclear Engineer Internship at a utility company

- Extracurriculars
Co-founder and President, Toastmasters (at work)
External chair, Asian strategy development (at work)
Young Nuclear Engineer leadership (at work)
Project Management, 2-3 independent projects
2 publications
Cricket club, American Nuclear Society, ASME leadership positions at college

- Goals:
short term: business development and strategy for nuclear expansion in Asian countries
long term: business and government relations within nuclear industry, nuclear expansion strategy, renewable energy development and expansion

- Schools:
New York University, Stern part-time MBA. Since I work in New York area, it would be most convenient to attend NYU.
Any advice on other schools is appreciated.

I was wondering if anyone could provide me with an idea of where I stand. I really appreciate any advice.
Thanks

I didn't want this post to go into the abyss. I cannot say that I'm an expert at part-time programs. However, I think most part-time programs are geared for older folks. Considering your age, you may be a bit young (again, I could be completely wrong about this). Without digressing too much, I would personally recommend you to look at each of the school's website (Stern) and see where you stand in terms of the class profile. If you're within the 10%-90% percentile range, you're in the hunt. One thing that I did notice is that you're interested in nuclear explansion in Asian countries. If situations allow, you can also look at some international programs, such as HKUST.

Hey! Thanks for your reply. I have been looking around and reading, but seems like 24-ish might not be so bad. I would like to know how good is their Strategy and Business Development areas.

Any other info you know will also be very useful. Thanks a bunch.

I can't really discuss much about it since I'm not that familiar with part-time. Here's another thing: you should be able to reach out to some of the current students (either via the school's site or via the admission committee) and ask about some of the most critical things that are on your mind. This way you will get a straight, non-biased answer.
