GMAT: 610 (Q46/V29)

Career Goals: I would like to become a business analyst and eventually a product manager, where I can use my analytical and logical skills

I understand this is an average profile, specially the gmat score. I do not want to leave my job to do MBA. I am planning to do part time MBA. I sent my scores to:
University of Florida-part time program, FAU - part time, FIU - part time, UNC - part time

I live and work in south florida. Hence mostly florida schools. Also, I could not really find many other good schools which have week end MBA program. I have a 2 year old son. So practically, it would be best, if I can do my MBA in florida. My first and fore most choice is University of Florida, part time program in south FL.

can any one please advice, if I stand a good chance to get it there? Also, can any one please recommend other good school outside florida, with week end MBA, where I can try?

Appreciate your feed back. Thanks.

Hi Scoremore,

You have an avg. profile, GMAT & a decent GPA. Really can’t help you in finding out the schools for part-time MBA. But you can try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool . I would rather suggest you to take 1 yr. full-time MBA program in UK, Europe & Asia-pacific region than part-time or weekend MBA, unless there are specific reasons.

You can always make your chances in b-schools by writing good essays & working hard on your interviews, where you can show leadership qualities & professional achievements.

Let me know in case of further queries.

Cheers!!
Neha

That makes sense!
:) Usually part time programs are rather flexible and not nearly as selective as the fulltime programs, so even with your 610, with 5 good years of IT experience you should stand a good shot. Before you commit though, make sure the school can get you where you want to go after you graduate (check out who hires and what they pay and how students are faring etc.) Will your company be sponsoring you???

Yes. My boss has given me an awesome recommendation. She asked me to proof read it. She knows I am aiming for part time. Not full time. So she is fine with it.
