Hi,

Just wondering why you are not targeting full-time MBAs? you are at the perfect age/ level of work experience for them. I understand the decision could be driven by a lot of personal factors, but I hope you have thought about full tie MBA programs as well.

Thank you for your quick reply. I’m not sure how the financials would work for me. Really want to go to mccombs FT but that is $110,000 I do not currently have, and would also miss out on around $140,000 (or more) in salary. PT I may be able to pay for my MBA while working with minimal loans, and if I can break into consulting I think I’d be able to break even in no time. Plus my GPA isn’t very good in terms of FT programs (switched major twice and tried to balance sports), but I am confident with taking GMAT. I don’t think MBAs are worth it anyway unless going to T20 (M7 probably out of the question)

1. You GPA damage can be controlled with a strong GMAT score and by presenting a strong application
2. I did look at the McComb's evening MBA website. They have a consulting club which should help in post MBA recruitments, but my understanding is that an internship is required to land a consulting job- I hope you have talked to current students and got heir opinion on how easy it is to make a transition after part-time MBA.
3. GMAT- its always good to get a high score. Who knows as you move along in the MBA admissions process, you may start considering a FT MBA and that would require score closeto 700

Thanks for the insight, I may look at some full time programs as well. Some current students said plenty landed big 4 consulting gigs from the part time program. Gonna try to get well over a 700, min did extremely well on the SAT

All the best bounceback.
From my experience as a consultant for several years I know that applicants' views evolve about which program to apply to / what is possible, what is not, in the MBA admissions cycle. As you learn more by talking to current and recent students, you will find yourself forming more solid opinions. That's why I am not ruling out full time programs at this point.
Do continue networking with students - if a consulting career is possible after a part-time MBA, then these programs will work in your favor.
And do keep updating this thread :)
