Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Originally I was thinking that I'd just take a week off. But I've had a job since I was like seven, worked twenty hours a week all through high school, worked all through college, and started my first job a week after I graduated college.
I've had some cool vacations and such but when I think back it's crazy that I haven't had any sort of real downtime in a long time. So as long as I'm racking up like 250K in debt, what's an extra month of lost income?
I had originally planned on ending by June 15th - giving me basically two months until the pre-MBA student trip starts - immediately after which they have a pre-mba class, followed by a few days off, followed by school. In rethinking, I'm thinking to leave sometime between July 1st and July 15th - giving me at 4 to 6 weeks off.
I voted 2 months, but I think, that in the end, my "fiscal brain" is going to force me to do more like 1 month - especially when you consider that really, the one week of "trip" is really a nice one week vacation.
I have a pre-existing medical condition... Under Kennedy-Kasenbaum (is that how you spell that second guy's name?), an insurance company has to cover pre-existing if the prior did provided you did not lapse more than 30 days. Therefore I don't want to be without medical insurance for more than 30d.

Hey guys. I am in a slightly precarious situation and would appreciate any guidance anyone can offer.
I am on the verge of selling my family business and have applied to all my target B-Schools for Round 1. I am confident that I will get into one of the schools in my listing. So I have a couple of options at this point. I can either join a firm and work for the remaining 6 months or so before school starts, or I can take that time off to travel the world and do stuff I always wanted to do but never had the time.
My query is whether a break of 6 months be looked upon in bad light later in job interviews and also if B-Schools really care about what you do in the period between accepting the offer letter and starting classes?
Really looking forward to some inputs. Thanks a lot!!!
