I had the same decision to make a couple of years ago. IMHO, the answer lies in what your pre-MBA career was and how adjacent/relevant it is to your future goals. If you came from high-tech consulting and now want to get into management consulting or say high-tech product management you are not looking a far fetched scenario. Since this is a relatively easy sell assuming you do the requisite work in a disciplined manner, Haas PT could be a great decision especially if the economics work better. But, if your pre-MBA career was non-profit or advertising or something that could be perceived as non-analytical then you would need to sell that pretty hard to the recruiters. Having the extra time as a full-time student, and potentially more resources could prove to be a big advantage in this scenatio.
I went with the FT option (Ross) because my career goals (GM, Healthcare) were unrelated to my pre-MBA employment and I felt that I had a better shot at making the transition. Good luck!
Want to get the forum's thoughts on my conundrum. I got into both Haas PT & Ross FT. I'd prefer a FT lifestyle and really like the culture at Ross. On the other hand, I'd save a lot money doing part-time at Haas. I want to do either consulting or high-tech right after school. Ross has good connections with tech companies, but not as good as Haas of course. Not sure which program recruits better with consulting companies. Final issue is Haas requires for me to either pass a waiver exam for stats and calc or college-level stats/calc courses in order to be admitted in August. I assume that on the off chance I don't pass the exams or courses, I would no longer be admitted to Haas.
