Your opinion plz:Top 10 MBA, MS in marketing or housewife? [#permalink]

This is my background: I'm an Asian female, 7 years experience in high tech marketing & business strategy and 1 year experience in housewife, since I moved to the States with my husband.
I got admitted to one of top 10 MBA schools and one top MS program in marketing this year. My husband is very supportive to whatever decision I will make but I'm having a hard time to decide.
These are the pros & cons for each option I'm thinking of: a. the top MBA program Pros: In terms of career advances and opportunities, there is no doubt this is the best choice Cons: The biggest concern is that it will take two years. The life style is challenging(according to what I know). It might conflict with the plan to have a baby in the near future. (Do you know any mom survives in MBA program? Please let me know!)
b. the top MS program Pros: It will enable me to find a marketing analyst job in the states(hopefully). It's only 12 months. 70% of MBA tuition cost. Cons: Narrow choices only in marketing field thus fewer opportunities compared to MBA. No career advances. Not an exciting job for me.
c. Housewife: I know some successful MBA women dropped out the professional world to be a full-time mom at a certain stage of their lives. But I was so surprised to see that rate can be around 30% high according to a research I recently read about. I'm asking myself s if it's so hard to maintain a life-work balance lifestyle post-MBA,should I save my money and time and just stay at home now? Pros: Good for family. Cons: boring, boring, boring. You know the "desperate" housewife.
I really need your honest thoughts. Thanks so much!

I will definitely go for the top 10 MBA Program, because such an education will be very beneficial to you in the future. Many people would kill for the opportunity to attend top institutions to study for their MBA.
