Congratulations! Santa Clara is a respected school, particularly on the west coast. Lots of entrepreneurs have come out and their undergraduate program is also a good one, which attracts top faculty talent to the school. Are you going to matriculate, or are you weighing other options as well?

Yes. I plan to matriculate. Given the strength of their part-time program, and my desire to remain fully employed, and my firm's tuition reimbursement of 10K, it makes good sense.

Plus, given SCU Leavey is part of the Jesuit MBA Agreement of Jesuit/Catholic MBA programs across America, the opportunity for me to transfer (assuming good academic standing and work justification) to NYC (Fordham) or Boston (Boston College) without having to officially apply to those schools is always an option as well should I ever decide to make the jump and re-locate within my firm.

Congratulations on your acceptance. I just turned my application in to Santa Clara last week. How long did it take to get your acceptance letter?

I took me less than 2 weeks from when I submitted. Did you apply for fall 2010?

What are your other school choices other than SCU?

Good luck!
