Part Time or Full Time ? [#permalink]

Hi All,
I am currently working as a software engineer in US. I have 6 years of experience in my field.

MBA was always one of the aspirations of my life. Due to personal reasons, I had to get married before I could purse with my MBA. Now I also have a child. But still the enthusiasm in me is alive and I have started preparing seriously for writing GMAT.

My first choice is always to join a full time MBA (of course this has other challenges with my current situation). I am also thinking of part time MBA program where I can work and also study. My company may not sponsor!

Meantime, I would like to get some advice from people here who might have similar situation as mine. Which is the best option for me? If full time, how can I manage to get a scholarship from the college? I have heard that part time programs require relatively low gmat scores compared to full program. Is this true?
Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Rakesh.

Rakesh,

The part-time vs full-time decision is a big one to make and one I would love to help you with. I will send you a PM as it will be helpful to know more about your background and future goals in order to give you the best advice.

Thanks,
Scott Edinburgh
