Sounds about right.

You’re making great money for 3 years out of undergrad, unless: You are a software engineer (which you said you aren’t). You came from MBB. You live in San Fran with no roommates. I think those are excellent numbers. You potentially have a better work-life balance now too

Any particular reason for that?

Hi everyone! I’ve been thinking for years now if I should pursue an MBA program? I’ve heard from many that for some it was helpful and they needed it to get promoted.

I’m asking because I’ve always wanted to strive to reach the highest level of education I can and I do like to learn but an MBA is an investment and I don’t know if it’s worth it.
