First off… Thanks for all the comments via FB.
For the sake of full disclosure… I am considering taking the GMAT.
The best hedge is simply to be prepared.
Taking the GMAT is like buying cheap protection. And I want to be prepared. In case I WANT to go. Like in financial markets, when you buy tail-risk protection, you hope you never have to actually use it.
It’s like saving, it helps you be prepared. It’s not about being jaded, it’s about being smart.
UPDATE- Going back to Bschool would not be to go back to the corporate world. I would do it because I think it can somehow help me do something I am not already— right now I don’t think that’s the case. Taking the GMAT just means that I would have the option to go. Jeez. I just left my job, if that’s not taking a leap, then I don’t know what is.
