I think you need to be able to explain why you want to make that change. I think the CFE would be helpful to show an interest in that path (and that you’re serious). You can definitely get into it if it’s what you want to do!

MD or MBA? I got into both. I know most will say choose the MD, but hear me out: MD: I'd have to go into a specialty to have a good IRR given my salary & the $200K+ debt. By the time I'd be done with residency the US may be in a single payer system. US doctors make 3x the amount in France and 2x vs UK.. I currently make what a doctor makes in France. That could be the future here, too. MBA: 1 yr. Europe. I'd make about 15-20% more vs. now.

I graduated with an MBA today. My mom immigrated to the US from Central America when she was 20. I lost her when I was young, but she planted a seed in me before we said goodbye. I feel like today I bear those fruits. Forever grateful.

I didn’t think anything could make an already stressful situation worse but my husband is going to an MBA program in the fall and I have to stay in our home city for work. This morning he told me he’d like to have a “married but available” status while he is completing his degree. I’m heartbroken and unsure what to do next.
