Priya thanks for your note. Because you are applying to evening programs, you should have a competitive application (assuming your writing skills are up to par). The evening programs, as you likely know already, do not have to report their stats to the ratings boards and these stats are not figured into the rankings. For this reason and others, the evening programs are more lenient on things like GMAT scores and GPA. The other reason they are lenient is because they know applicants are working full time and do not have the kind of marginal free time to prepare for the GMAT like some of the applicants to the daytime programs. The daytime programs are considered "flagships" and is where most of the marketing and focus is placed in order to achieve or maintain high rankings. Going to a top daytime program's evening program is a good strategy, since you benefit in the long run from the daytime program's reputation, yet do not have to suffer the additional challenges often required to gain admission. Don't get me wrong, the evening programs are still very competitive, but the stats show that the odds of achieving a positive admissions decision are better. Let us know if we can help you construct your approach in the applications to maximize your potential for admission.
