I learned a lot, covered an amazing amount of material, worked with some great faculty and peers, and genuinely appreciated the entire experience. It was very, very challenging but rewarding in the end. As with all MBA programs, the more you put in the more you get out of it. I felt as though Ohio State provided me the full-time experience on a part-timer's schedule. They allowed all part-time students to participate in all opportunities provided their employer allowed it. All-in-all, a great experience. I would do it again.
