The 'worth it' doesn't depend on how much money I'll be making afterwards. The worth it depends on all opportunity cost, such as studying time, stress and not having time for others such as boyfriend, friends and family (my mom said she'll kill me if I go back to school again), etc. I have a great job I love so I'd continue working full-time. For an MBA, I would like to go to a good school and evening MBA's are tough too. I'd love to do a Rice MBA but that is out of the question.

Besides, I enjoy being finally able to do what I want to do. The first thing I did this summer after graduating was taking an Illustrator class for Adobe and I loved it.

Besides all that, there is the question 'How the heck to pay for an MBA?!?'

I used to have this mind frame until finding a few real world examples of individuals with mba's turning around and being forced to teach because of either not being able to get on anywhere or the salary not being up to par or whatever other issue there may have been. I know the MBA is definitely a good thing to have but if I am only looking at making 80k then I wouldn't think it would be worth it. I am 2 years out and making 50+ now, and that's with limited certifications. I'd be better off getting Cisco certified in the significantly shorter period of time than getting an MBA and would make more with the Cisco. I don't know though, each his own...still in limbo here as far as a decision is concerned...:/:

It doesn't matter what level of education you, or your co-workers have. You still end up working with a bunch of retards.

In the IT world, real experience and certifications will get you a lot further than a college degree. The only thing a college degree may be good for is if you are planning on going for manager or leader positions; otherwise, as an individual contributor, certs are the way to go.

Wanna guess how much I got from a Pell Grant? I only qualified for it once...
i agree, my parents "make to much"... but they didn't give me money or pay for my school, what does that have to do with my eligibility!?!?! i debated "getting married" to someone just for the of it so i could get free money for school, then spend $600 for the divorce after school. even if they got half of what i had would be fine, what is half of nothing?

Yeah I was just hoping to move to the business side of the house. I only got the CIS degree because I happened to be good at it and it wasn't so difficult that it would take longer than four years to complete; also because it had enough business courses to carry over into an MBA relatively smoothly, which ultimately, was my goal...to have a business degree that I could apply to some sort of consulting/investing field and in the end, my own business. Finance was too generic and I wanted to know how to set up my own network because computer centric business solutions are the way to go in this new day in age. Anything short of that will leave you years behind the competition. :/:
