I graduated from law school in 2007, went to big law and was laid off in 2009 due to the Great Recession. I went back to school and got my LLM in tax, after a stint at big 4, I got back into big law but was asked to start over as a first year. Years later, close to partnership and being mentored in that direction, I lost my job due to something completely out of my control that I can’t get into. I always wanted to make partner, but I’m struggling at my new firm with not enough work (p. 1)

I come from a very low socioeconomic background (Asian, Male, Straight), came to the states at age 14. Since graduating from top 25 UG school in Econ, I've been supporting my parents. My dad lost his job since 2016.
With that said, I really want to pivot to IB. But I just don't see myself being able to afford FT M7 MBA and I will need to work to send money to my parents.
So I'm looking at PT Booth. Is PT MBA really unrecognized and looked down upon?
I can do M7 FT, but prefer not to. GMAT 760.
