Haha I went to b school for multiple reasons, including trying to find someone and it was a bust. Still the best two years of my life, but you're not missing out there.

I just feel I have been working and working. I also had some serious family illnesses which are now behind me. I need a break.

Take a sabbatical OP. Get some fresh air, travel and volunteer, maybe meet the person of your dreams there 🙂

It sounds like you need a break - maybe consider a leave of absence or sabbatical? School is calmer than work but still super busy and you need to be in the right headspace to get the most out of it.

So you're going to spend 200k+ and 2 years of your life to get some dates and take a break from work? You realize that that sounds insane right?

Like I said...
