How did you make your decision to get an MBA? What did you give up in order to do so? Did it/does it look like/do you think it will pay off in the end?
I'm currently at a firm that I like, and it's theoretically possible for me to get into the industry I want without getting an MBA. For these reasons, it's really a huge sacrifice, and a substantial risk, to quit my job and move away with my wife to go to school again. Needless to say, I'm a bit apprehensive about the whole thing. That being said, I still feel this inexplicable desire/need to get into a good school and earn an MBA. Has anyone else wrestled with this apprehension? Did you fear that you were leaving a "sure thing" with your current job and jumping blindly into uncharted waters? Were you afraid of graduating and finding yourself unable to find that "dream" job?
