Hi there, I was recently accepted into TAMUG for the MARA program. I had been out of school for about 5 years, found myself living in Galveston and decided to go back to school. I figured an AS in business admin would be a good place to begin seeing as in the past five years I have moved into management with multiple companies and am highly favored by current and previous employers. I have done really well in school so far also, all A’s in math (college algebra, finite math, and business calculus 1), A’s in science (BIO 1 and 2), A’s in business classes (econ 1&2, accounting 1&2, business law, business speech, and required English composition). I have made a habit of doing the best in each of my classes and my grades reflect that. I am graduating GC magna cum laude and I am excited to attend A&M but everything is completely new to me and I don’t have sea experience or know people (or students) in the industry.
I decided on MARA because of my associates in business and I actually like my job a lot and living in Galveston so I don’t really have any other options on the island without traveling or exclusively taking online classes. Aside from taking the GMAT and keeping my grades up, what should I do to be considered for the MMAL LO track? I went to the school this week and spoke with a department head and 57 of my hours are transferring in. I begin Spring 2016. I was advised to apply for the graduate program next fall since MARA can be done as a 3+2 program and I could be awarded the BS and MMAL simultaneously. I did not discuss with him the TMA and possibly going with the license option. It doesn’t seem there are many graduate students working on their license, however I am certain that is what I would like to do - especially if I can cut down on a few hours while earning the undergraduates.
What are your thoughts on this? Are many people dropping out of the MMAL or LO program because of difficulty when completed simultaneously? Ever heard of anyone completing modified coursework like Dr. K told me about so they earn their BS, MMAL and license concurrently?
