I made it!

I got this email today from the University of Washington! I'm excited and it came much earlier than they had originally told us.

Congratulations! You have been admitted to the University of Washington’s Evening MBA Program for Autumn 2007. We invite you to join our community of faculty, staff, students and alumni, and become a part of one of the most prestigious academic programs in the Northwest. At the University of Washington, a highly selective admissions process and a smaller program size permit us to select students who excel in many dimensions. This insures that you are among a small, talented group of peers. Our Admissions Committee believes you will make a significant contribution to the entering class.
Just as my kids are thinking of getting out of school for the summer, I am thinking of getting back in. How ironic.

congratulations.I'm also planning to apply next year to UW. How many years of experience do you have? What kind of GMAT score is good enough? Any info would be appreciated.

Erik and Mark
Thank you!

BW,
Thanks.

I've got 10 years of work experience, which is about the average of people in the program.

Regarding GMAT score, the admissions team evaluates you as a whole, so at UW, it doesn't ride solely on GMAT, GPA or other scores. Strong points in some areas can help out weaker areas.

Definitely attend their orientation sessions - they are very informative and give you insight into their perspectives.

Check out the the Evening MBA Progam site for more details.
