The mean field dynamics of manifolds in a quenched random potential is discussed by means of the Martin-Siggia-Rose (MSR) method. In a self-consistent way we obtain for the dynamic exponent z the value $z=\frac{4-D}{4(1+\gamma)}$ where D is the dimension of the manifold and $\gamma$ the noise characteristics of the potential. This implies immediately for the wandering exponent $\zeta=\frac{4-D}{2(1+\gamma)}$, i.e. that obtained by hierarchical replica symmetry breaking. The general scaling law $z=\frac{1}{2}\zeta$ is suggested. Moreover, we find as the replica theory two, different regimes for the wandering exponent as a function of the noise correlation function.
