Hi everyone,

I have been incredibly lucky, and have been admitted to my top-choice full-time program and my top-choice part-time program.

I rarely see anything at all about folks who are exploring full-time and part-time programs at the same time. In my case, I am simply overwhelmed by the $$ involved. I come from plenty of privilege, but not enough to choose $186K in loans with any amount of comfort. I want to go to Yale, but I just can't reconcile the finances. They mention that the 'average' student only takes less than 60K in loans, and takes 6-7 years to repay them. That's crazy to me - am I silly for even considering the option when I don't have an alternative funding source and no scholarship? Do people even do that; is it possible?

OK, we are straying from the point, my apologies for my anxieties. The end goal is Deloitte Human Capital. A friend on the inside tells me Yale SOM is a popular feeder there (controlling for size of program, I imagine).

I guess my second question is this - if I do Chicago's PT Weekend MBA program, is it even minutely possible for me to land at Deloitte Human Capital? If there is a reasonable chance, I will make it happen, but I want to get a sense of how often this occurs - are PT graduates (specifically from Haas/Booth calibre) at all competitive for Deloitte, McKinsey, etc?

So basically... (1) do people take 186K in loans, without alternative funding? Like, is that a thing that happens? And (2) can I get to Deloitte Human Capital from a top ranked part-time program like Booth?

Thanks for your advice. I apologize if these questions are basic, I've been undertaking this process pretty much all on my own!

I've asked a similar question here, and every single response said go full time. Now that you have the offers you should be direct and honest with the employment related depts at booth, ask them if this goal of yours is reasonable, if they say yes ask for annecdotes at the least. Few here (myself included, so feel free to ignore this all) know what they are talking about

I say go full time too for the reasons mentioned above. What is your current role? I ask because the bigger the leap to consulting, the more you should consider a full time program. If you're doing something very similar to consulting now at a place like Deloitte, a part-time program might suffice with a lot of hustle on your end.
