the bar is generally lowered, even if only slightly, for the part-time programs at the higher ranked programs. That said, the GPA might be troubling. You basically have to demonstrate to the programs that academics will not be a problem. Any recent course work that can corroborate that, would be gre...


When are you planning to apply? Do you have any geographic preference? It would be helpful for you to apply in Round 1, which means you've missed that for this cycle. If you're considering US programs, for this cycle, you might need to investigate programs around the T30 mark, but that is just a gue...

Sorry for the delay in responding. Your experience looks good, especially your most recent experience. If you can use this to show leadership and impact (which you should be able to do) this will be very good. Numbers appear to be OK, but it will be your experience which should help you through the ...

if you get a 720+ GMAT, you might well be competitive for Stern's FT program. The employment gaps would need explaining in the optional essay. If you can show impact at work, that's key. You don't mention your goals, which are obviously very important. The PT option is good, if you are happy staying...

have you considered looking at executive MBA programs, rather than full time programs? Your demographic may be more suited to those types of programs. cheers, alex

honestly, I think your candidacy will be MUCH stronger in a couple of years, at which point your stretch schools become targets etc? You can probably gain admissions to your targets now, but you would be under selling yourself. If you continue to work, gain additional challenging experiences and fur...

its hard to give good advice, off such little information. If you have an engineering degree, with a strong GPA, that may help compensate for the lower GMAT. If you think you can improve your GMAT 30+ points, then it might be very worthwhile to do so. That said, if you are of Indian origin, you migh...

super GMAT and UCLA courses should help with the lower GPA. With strong experience, and decent ECs you should be competitive for the second set of schools you list. HSW is tough for anybody. Make sure you really know why your applying to business school, and how it makes sense for your goals. Good l...

Can you retake the GMAT, and still apply in Round 1 (which will be important for you, since you are part of a very competitive profile). You experience looks interesting, and tied with compelling goals, you should be an attractive candidate. Just fear the GMAT uGPA combo is going to let you down. ch...

sorry for the delay in responding. Critical to your success will be keeping up with leadership and volunteer opportunities, as you have done in the past. You also need to make a strong case as to why you want to pursue the MBA. Acing the GMAT will also help. cheers, alex

sorry for the delay in responding. As you put your applications together, a key issue you will need to address is why you need this second MBA. Your experience and profile should help differentiate you from many candidates, which is a good thing. cheers, alex

sorry for the delay in responding (had trouble logging in). Your list of schools is OK, but broad. Wharton and Duke have strong health care programs, so I would prioritize schools like that. Apply in round 1 if you can, especially important for indian nationals. IF you think you can bump your GMAT u...

yes, applying in Round 1 can help, if everything is ready at the time. You don't discuss your goals, which are also very important. Good luck. cheers, alex

Your work experience and academics appear to be strong. Your GMAT is ok, but if you could strengthen that score, it might help tip the balance at the very top schools. cheers, Alex
