For career change pivot point, yes. Otherwise I don’t see the return on $$$ even at a top school.

You would need to use it as a jump off to something else. It's a major time investment and it's expensive. IMO only worth it at a top 10 school

So seriously what is the story behind “Deloitte being harder to get into than Harvard”? Where did that saying come from? Is it really true? Or is it one big joke? My friend from MBA school got tipsy and she went on and on about it this past weekend.

I am admittedly burnt out and tired of working busy season hours when it’s not (understaffed) and being under appreciated. Applying and interviewing, but not much traction (thanks, COVID). So the question is, when you don’t want to work and feel like you can’t suck it up and put on a facade anymore, how do you keep up the energy and motivation for your team? (Seeking real responses from people who have been here.)
