Are you talking about Loyola in LA?  I'm applying to their part-time program (I'd rather do full-time, but 1) I have not much of a shot and 2) I should have a job lined up so I could cut down on loans).  My LSDAS GPA is 3.7+ and I have a 158.  I'm under the impression that, for full-time, I wouldn't have much of a shot, but I'd be more of a target/small reach for part-time.

I think if you have a 160 or so and a decent GPA, you should be fine as long as all your supporting material is strong.

well I'm applying there full-time with 3.6 and 160..and according to LSN, it's not that much of a reach.(and it's not a safety either).. so I think you should be fine.

thanks for the encouraging words

i was actually wondering if you apply for Full Time and you don't get in, will they consider you for part time?

Think it depends on the school. I would check with them specifically.

I've heard of people applying full-time to Loyola, getting waitlisted, and then later being offered a spot in their part-time program.  They didn't have the option to choose both like some schools do.  If you end up getting waitlisted, you could always mention in a letter of intent that Loyola's your first choice and you'd be willing to attend the part-time program if there are no more spots in the full-time division.  Otherwise, if you want full-time, I'd apply full-time.

They allow you to state your preference if you get waitlisted.  That happened to me last year.  (Loyola LA)
