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.

In my view, you should be competitive for part time programs and actually posess several advantages including offering diversity in being female and Indian, both traits that will be less common in your area. Part time programs are more forgiving than FT programs since the rankings are based on FT programs. This year in particular is a good year to apply since applications are down. This makes the odds a bit better. Not sure exactly what your target schools are seeing since in some cases, PT applications are up because more people are nervous to take 2 years off their jobs to go to school, but if it's trending like other programs, it should be a good year to give it a try.
