Part Time or Full Time?
« on: April 25, 2006, 09:01:46 PM »
I was under the impression that part time programs were harder to get in because they were in higher demand.  Is this true?

No. Part time programs are actually easier to get into because US News doesn't take the statistics on part timers into account when it developes its rankings.

Well, you could both be right?

The PT admissions numbers standards are lower than those of regular admissions. However, there may be lots more applicants at certain number ranges, so it would be a mistake to infer that it would be 'easy' because it is easier.

Lewis & Clark claims that isn't true, and most part/full time programs allow you to change between the two after your first year.

I got into 3 part time programs, and easily had admission changed to full time when I decided I couldn't handle part time with a full time job without one or both suffering to the point where it would be better not to do them.
