Why did the chicken cross the road ? An economist might say, "because it maximized his utility". I would say do it if maximizes your utility. Bear in mind that maximizing utility is no simple proposition - Life is complex and painfully uncertain. There are number of things you may wan't to do at the moment, for instance, I would like to smack my Boss with with baseball bat if given a chance ( I confess I would really enjoy doin this to him :)), I may never do it, because such an adventure my end my fragile career and even worse, I could end up in prison or a in a probation at least.
Business school allows you to experiment, but you need have at least a vague idea of what you want to do post MBA, B-school can't do wonders and transform you from within. Typically MBA programs ask you to take a Careerleader test, based on your answers this test will suggest what you should do post-MBA. CareerLeader has many cracks and some of these cracks really open up if your introspection isn't really upto the mark. The only way to find out is take the MBA pill and see where it takes you, if you have an open mind coupled with a sense of purpose, you may derive a lot of utility from the experience . In the end you'll might be pushed to join the herd in their job search as well. In B-school yours and your b-school's success is measured by the job offer and how many digits it contains.
