How Much Money To NOT Go To School? [#permalink]
19 Apr 2007, 13:29
I've asked this before, but I want to ask it again now that most people have been accepted somewhere.
How much money would someone need to offer you as a lump-sum (no taxes) to NOT go to business school. In other words, they would hand you the money, and you would never be able to go to business school ever.
Amazing. So far two people have said more than 2 million dollars. That means if they won two million dollars in the lottery tomorrow, they would then be willing to pay tuition of a little over 2 million dollars to go to b-school. People had similar answers last time I had this poll, but I was wondering if the whole process of applying had discounted the value of an MBA for people.
I'm also really looking forward to school. Making a lot of money isn't the only reason I'm going to school, I am looking forward to the experience, and to actually learning, but my main goal is to graduate with greater earning power, so give me $500,000 and I'd easily walk away.
I suppose for those planning to go into i-banking (and planning to beat the odds of most i-bankers, i.e. not burning out after a couple years and leaving the industry, actually sticking around to make huge huge salaries) that greater riches lie ahead.
No matter what, I am going to B-School. I did not sacrifice so much just for x amount of money.
Wow, that is dedication and drive. I can say for 800K I would walk. Jay you are telling me if someone walked up to you and opened a brief case with 2 mil. in it you would not take it and walk away. I find that hard to believe. This is almost like a game we play with the drunks at the bar where I tend. It is would do X for $Y? i.e. " Would you sleep with 300lbs, ugly, smelly girl for 10K? and then keep going up. It is funny how everyone has a different approach to the game. Some answer realistically and other are just plain lying. I would love to meet someone who would not wax it with a girl for 10 mil. If you are here please tell me!
Bragging ?!!! I barely have a 600 GMAT with no WE and nothing whatsoever .. I'll be glad if ANY MBA program accepts me
Full scholarship at harvard ? in my dreams ..
It's just a hypothetical question .. nothing more .. nothing less
I was assuming: what if something magical happened and wharton offered me a full scholarship at their MBA program .. is such an opportunity cost of spending two more years studying rather than getting a work experience worth it ?
I guess that's just because I'm not sure about the value of an MBA ..
