Thanks for your help and time!
The bar for part time programs is generally lower vs full time MBAs so your soild GMAT can really help you in that regard vs your undergrad GPA. But part time programs can be quite different than traditional two year programs in terms of career help, networking and a full feel experience. Your two year list is short and Wharton is going to likely be out of reach. Schools like Ross and Tepper are worth a look (and I helped folks with your gpa range last season get into those two schools) but will also not be easy for you. The other issue you have in your application is you are applying as an engineer and not as an engineer who has begun a transition to more of a "business role". That and your gpa will create challenges so start working on a longer, more balanced school list.
