1. It's not just about another 6 months. It's about the next year or year and a half of your life. Can you last that long there?

2. Are your recs from your current job? Can you leave without burning those bridges?

3. Do you have a new job in mind or can you challenge yourself with a new role in your current company? Getting a new job in Feb/March won't hurt your fall application as long as you can explain why you made the move and how it will help you reach your goals. The same goes for any lateral move or promotion (not that you would turn down a promotion).

Just some food for thought.

SM0421, I think you need to spend some time looking(deep dive) at your strategy overall. Looking through your post history, you've:

You've stated you'd like to go into Automotive Marketing.
You've stated "HBS, Stanford, Wharton, MIT, Columbia" as the only places your interested in for full time
Only applied to HBS and Stanford, with no interview dings
your backround is sub 2.5 gpa from top chinese engineering school, top student in your MS from Bentley in marketing, a 770 GMAT, good internships and 4.5 years of experience at 3 different companies.

My first thoughts are: a 4th Job in 5 years raises concern unless you can expertly justify it.
Other thoughts: Your scope is very narrow. If you want auto marketing I cannot see why Kellogg! and Ross are not top choices.
