Transferring business schools hurts or helps application? [#permalink]

Hi,

I'm looking to transfer into Stern's part-time MBA program from a full-time program I was accepted into after just a semester. The school I was accepted into is pretty competitive (but not as competitive as Stern).

I was wondering if this would help or hurt my application. I thought it might help because it shows that I have the potential to get into a program, but it might hurt because it seems like I'm a school jumper.

The reason I want to transfer is because it was my ultimate goal to stay in NYC and go to Stern, but I was declined from their full-time program.

I thought it might help because it shows that I have the potential to get into a program, but it might hurt because it seems like I'm a school jumper.Thanks for reaching out- it is easier to go from FT to PT. But rather than focusing on your stated reason of saying basically you just want to get into the back door of Stern now since FT Stern didn't pan out. Focus more on what has happened now that makes you want to do PT now after starting FT. Reasons that I can think of that might get traction would be... some great new work opportunity came up and you now want to move to PT and you realized Stern has what you are looking for. Be specific about which classes and resources make sense. Don't disparage where you are now-
but just explain your reasons why you want to make the switch. Also if there is some personal reason calling you back to NY then that could be a reason- but be sure to also speak to the professional goals you have and how Stern PT best prepares you for them. Good luck!


The reason I want to transfer is because it was my ultimate goal to stay in NYC and go to Stern, but I was declined from their full-time program.
