So I mean I really hope this doesn’t come off as braggy/out of touch, just trying to set my self up for success as much as possible, but somehow I feel like the mpp/ms poli sci route is the direction everyone heads, and kind of want to differentiate myself somehow, I.e. everyone zigs and I want to zag kind of thing..would love your thoughts!

I’d say it’s the opposite.

OP, what sort of work in the gov?

Hmm good to know, even if this work has basis in DoD/defense policy? Feel like they would respect MBA more (could be wrong)

If anyone is thinking about going on flex time, I would highly recommend it. It might not work for everyone, but my experience has been a positive one. I took a 20% pay cut along with 20% reduced hours. I am able to support my family with that income and my firm respects my limited hours, but I still need to plan to make sure I can complete tasks in my reduced hours too. Anyways, if you like what you do, but don’t like the long hours and can take a pay cut, I would do it.
