Got accepted in upenn online mcit with my tesu bachelor
#1
Hey Guys,

I decided to give Penn a try and got in with:

BSBA general management
Associate in CS
no GRE
GPA 4.0 (only 1 course)

They said they would keep admission to 10%, no way to know if it is true at this point, in the webinar they said to put a lot of focus on what you want to do with the degree, I really pushed the envelop there...

There is a thread on reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/mcitonline/comm...ring_2019/) and it seems they rejected quite a few people with much better academic credentials... not the first to say this here, put a lot of focus on your personal statement and recommendations!!
TESU BACS, Expected 2019, 117/120.

They might even have liked that you did your undergrad degree online. It should improve the chance that you'll graduate from their program.

That's quite possible, I did speak about my experience with tesu in my essay.

Now I got a hard choice to make, the program is quite expensive and I got a new position at work that I'm not sure I can combine with a regular study schedule. Staying with a competency-based program might be a safer bet for me.

Would your employer be willing to help with tuition?

What if you did the UPenn courses part time(1 per semester instead of 2)?
