Thank you all for your very insightful advices and for sharing your experiences. I am just beginning my MBA this fall and I am making some research on the career options available for internationals like me.
I am a little worried about life/work balance but I am decided to work whatever the time I would need to work (at least the first two years), if that work fullfills my life.
It would be very interesting to update some information in this thread as it is very useful for both me and my colleagues, who are just starting this journey.
On the MBAs events and corporate meetings, this theme (Work/life balance) is very popular and it represents a worry/ interest in almost all MBA candidates.
In future posts, I will include information and articles that I will gather during my research.

An interesting point about work/life balance post-MBA.

Many applicants get into a top program, thinking they're "set", but don't realize that some of the top paying jobs (consulting, banking, among others) are almost de facto 70+ hour weeks.

Using our site, TransparentMBA, we've acquired over 140,000 data points from real MBAs and our average hours worked is 59 hours per week. With an total compensation average of ~\$200k (top 25 schools). You can check out the site (free for MBAs, alumni and prospective students) for more info by company, industry, function, location, etc.
