I started my MBA in my home country (Philippines) some 2 years ago, but I haven't finished it because I was only taking one class a semester, since I was working full-time, and now I am on leave because my work has intensified. Will disclosing this in my application hurt my chances?
I have been working for 9 years, and I started my MBA after working for 6 years. Part of me wants to disclose this fact because I think it shows that I have been trying to improve myself. But, my grades are not that good because I kept missing class to attend to work requirements, so I worry that the disclosure might hurt me. How do I handle this? I am targeting Duke, Dartmouth, Cornell, UNC, and Ross.
It doesn't seem like you were involved in this course at all- one course a semester is far too less.
I would think that the course does not really count and its alright if you don't talk about it.
