I'm also an actuary. If your experience is anything like mine, most people have no idea what you're talking about when you say what you do, let alone care about SOA designations. Based on conversations I've had at info sessions, the same is true of most adcom members. Sadly for the amount of work we put into the exams, pretty much the only people who care about actuarial designations are actuaries.
On the bright side, I know several recovering actuaries who have successfully used an MBA to make a career change. Work on crushing the GMAT and you'll be in good shape.
