Has/did anyone find that their curiosity or number of interests hinder them in figuring out what they wanted to do with or after an MBA? Some days i could see myself trying to go into IB for a few years, but i have a lot of other personal interests that i could see myself trying to make a career out of. I’ve been thinking about taking the GMAT for two years but because of Covid/me not deciding what i want to do, i haven’t decided if i want to go down the mba route. Turning 28 soon

P.S: On introspection, I’ve realised that I might play this switching game again as I’m experimental and want changes.

Got offered consulting positions, but took this path instead. Sometimes I wonder if it was the right position. They complain about the amount of 'travel' they have to do. Sounds like a dream.
