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.

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.
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.
