How many credits can I take while working full time? Post Mon Sep 27, 2010 4:25 am
I plan on attending Rutgers for my MBA. I'll be going part-time to night classes. How many classes (3cr. each) can i realistically take while working 45 hours a week? I am debating between 2 and 3 classes each semester. I don't want to overwhelm myself, but i also don't want to be in grad school for 5 years.

I will speak to an advisor at the school later on, but i wanted the opinion of the BTG community. Thanks!

I am at IU Kelley and work full time. I took 6 credits in the fall semester, that was about all I could handle (have a wife, 3 kids as well). I'm leaving full-time work to finish up the program though, so I am in 15 cr. starting in Jan, you can check out my experiences at http://bschool.bangosoft.com if you like. Best wishes.
