In terms of UCLA FEMBA, the average work experience is closer to 6-8 yrs so you may find this a challenge- but certainly your GMAT is competitive. You may want to initiate a conversation with adcom at UCLA to discuss their perspective on this before you commit to which program you apply to at UCLA. Your profile absolutely fits with the averages of Full time program.
I think you'd be very competitive for USC part-time- but avg work is also about 6 yrs, the UCI program may be your best odds- here is class profile info: https://merage.uci.edu/admissions/maste ... d-mba.html
Here's something else to consider- with your strong GMAT and what looks to be some kind of connection to the Latino community- you could be a good prospect for scholarships at some full time MBA programs. I'd look further into Consortium as a potential scholarship source: https://cgsm.org/ and also some other Full time programs- I'd look at SMU Cox and look at the list of schools participating through Consortium for more places. It would be a shame to not explore how and where you would be a strong scholarship candidate- and thus would allow you the full time ability to devote emphasis to getting the most from MBA and not trying to work and study at the same time. We'd be glad to explore more with you how we can help you develop a scholarship strategy as part of your MBA applications. Most scholarships are only with Full time MBA. Please reach out to us for a free consult so we can tell you more- I really do think this could be a great option for you! https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/
