I’m not ashamed to admit that 75% of the reason I’m going to get an MBA is with the hopes of getting an MRS out of it too

Get a Mrs *at* the MBA program or as a result of the MBA?

If the former... 😬

If the latter, do you really want a Mrs who is only into you because of the MBA, as that what it seems to imply? Or do you mean that as a result of getting the MBA you'll do different things in life than you are now and find a Mrs through those new, different things?

Both? Basically that you’ll be around and introduced to new people of varied backgrounds that you wouldn’t have met if just at your firm so it’s a more varied dating pool, and creates a wider network. Also some of the vetting is already done for you by the schools

Lots of people hookup during the program, few marry. 😂🤣😂

In my program out of the 3 classes I saw come through about 2-3 ppl got married. That’s about 12-1500 ppl that were in and around the school so the odds are low. I’m guessing you would wait until 2021 or 2022 to matriculate otherwise your efforts would be nil.

In my 80 person section of my class, we had 4 resulting marriages, so >10% success rate.

And that's within my section alone... we've had several marriages across sections as well
