UCLA-USC part time [#permalink] New post 12 Jan 2009, 20:17
Hi all,

Just gave my gmat and got a score of 610 q-39 v-35.
This was my second attempt and a 200 point increase from my last attempt.

I have a work experience of around 2.5 yrs and engineer my profession.

PLease let me know if you guys think this score is atleast enough to apply for USC and UCLA.

Thanks
Jack

That's not a bad score. Here are some stats from BusinessWeek:

UCLA [1]
Average GMAT: 690
Median GMAT: 700
Middle 80% GMAT:
From: 630
To: 740

USC [2]
Average GMAT: 630
Median GMAT: 640
Middle 80% GMAT:
From: 570
To: 700

I think a 610 isn't out of reach for USC, but I'm not sure about UCLA. Keep in mind that these schools look at more than just your GMAT score (they also consider other things like work experience, gpa, etc.)

I will be focusing on Commercial Real Estate so UCLA and USC are my top choices. UCLA is my top choice, based on quality of students. However, within the Commercial R/E community, USC has strong / deep ties.

Originally, I was all gun-ho about going to Anderson Full Time. Given the state of the economy, I'm beginning to think that the FEMBA program is the better option.

I currently work in Commercial Real Estate Finance so it makes more sense for me to go part time. I'm still learning a ton of new things at work and the thought of giving up a nice paying job now (when I juuuuuust survived a round of layoffs) doesn't really make sense.

Hard decision to make. I'm definitely thinking part time is the way to go but who knows. Lose all my free time for the next 3 years or take 2 years of "vacation" at school, take on a butt load of debt, and HOPE the economy recovers (i.e. I can get a job).

Yikes. :?
