There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
What about a slightly broader area? I was looking at Penn State for her, and not being familiar with the area, thought it might be reasonably close, but I guess 4 hours (according to Google) is a bit much---still, I would think there would be some reasonable commuting options in Virginia or elsewhere?...maybe?
Are there any other schools within a 3 hour commute of DC? Thanks for your help again---I really don't know anything about (1) DC (we are on the west coast), or (2) MBA programs, so your help is much appreciated.
McDonough is the name of the business school at Georgetown. It's a good school - in top 25.
I think she should first consider what type of program she wants.
Part-Time Full-Time Evening Weekend Online
Penn State has a good online program that requires a couple (I think) of residencies. That means she'll have to be on-campus for a week about two times over the course of the program. The rest of the work is done online.
If you don't know about MBA Podcaster, it can be a good resource for her/you. We produce podcasts on MBA related topics.
I'd suggest the following shows:
"Part-Time vs. Full-Time" "Getting an MBA vs MS in Finance" "Choosing the Right Business School"
Check out MBAPodcaster.com and search under "podcasts" for these shows.
Also, Business Week posts rankings and profiles of business schools by program type - full-time, part, distance and executive - so check that out as well.
