:?: :?: Where are you applying? No b-school is flooded with hot chicks - not even USC (Marshall). However, USC's undergrad student body, that's another story. IHateTheGMAT can back me up on this.


ahahaha hey hey now! There are women on this board believe it or not!

My current job does not offer much growth.An MBA at this moment is a step in the right direction for me.I want to take more challenges.

Also as someone else mentioned,I want to hang around with hot Babes.I'm bored working with middle aged people right now. :)

Well... my main reason. I'm 26 (27 at matriculation), and I want my MBA and I want kids. So. If I want to have kids before I'm 40 and actually have a solid career (being a woman) - I should go now. And secondly, I want to get out of my current industry. If I stayed here another few years, I would not progress as much as I would if I went to a full-time MBA program. I am looking forward to meeting new people, from various professions and growing my network and business knowledge. Coming from an IT and writing background, I need that business foundation to accomplish my long term goals.

If the economy doesn't fit in to my long term personal and professional goals, then so be it. I'm confident I will make it work out in the end. People are too reactive in my opinion, don't lose faith that this is the right decision just because the news is blasting something discouraging (when is it not?).


That's a good point jlola - it's not my primary reason for going to school now (I'm 23 so have a few more years) but in the back of my mind have been doing some timeline planning....getting an MBA sooner than later will def help :)

Earlier is definitely better! My mom has two bachelors degrees and a masters. She got her second bachelors while she was pregnant with me, and then got her masters when I was two, while still working full time. Could you imagine? Working, pregnant, and going to school? Just thinking about it gives me a headache.
