Part-time M.B.A. students sometimes feel like second-class citizens. After all, they see their full-time counterparts participating in enriching extracurricular activities, interacting more with fellow students, alumni and professors, and receiving more extensive career and job-placement services.

As a result, they’re putting part-timers on much more equal footing with the full-time class.
