I saw an blog post last summer - can't find it now - about the CIA recruiting at bschools. Seems like an interesting career choice to go from MBA to spy.

I've looked at this possibility as well, but it's tough to do even with the new loan repayment programs. MBAs enter most Federal jobs as GS-9s, which translates to making a little under $50k/year in DC. Lawyers, by contrast, enter at $72-80k/year, which is quite a bit more attractive given that the hours are half what you'd work at a law firm. If the Federal government is serious about bringing in talented managers from top schools, they need to fix the compensation.

Another advantage to working for Uncle Barack is the recently-expanded loan forgiveness programs for public service.
