Typically it's over differences of opinion on the best type of cranberry sauce. Sad!

Yes. The more rural the school, the higher percentage of break ups.

MBA is a really immersive experience that takes up a bunch of time. Aside from class during the day and group work at night, all the networking, social events, and career stuff leaves little time for anything else. For those who attempt to do long distance, it's on the student to make the effort and the other half to not get annoyed/jealous/impatient with the lack of attention. Also add in the temptation - outta sight outta mind - well, things happen.

My bf and I broke up around thanksgiving but that was first year of undergrad....I just think whenever one person out of the duo goes to school and go back in that mindset...when they first start they get overwhelmed and then they go thru a phase of soul searching and self discovery....and then 3 months later they think this found the new direction and life path and ask to break up :)

I know lots of pre-MBA couples. Many of them didn't make it through, some did. None actually broke up over Thanksgiving, though that season (end of first quarter/semester) was definitely a breakup time.

When your SO is around that many interesting and different people...you can grow apart easily since you are not there to experience the same events...and then the difference over certain subjects kick in and you fight more often and it gets more difficult to make up because of long distance...it's just the "natural path"

'Group work' is code for meeting eligible, attractive and ambitious people who are either single or may well soon be single...

Supervisor said I couldn’t have week off for vacation this summer bc another coworker of higher seniority asked off the same week and two people can’t go on vacation at the same time because of staffing. But this coworker that asked off works different shift than me? He works 1st shift I work second. We have a total of 8 workers and no more than 4 work a day. can easily be covered. This has never been a problem until this year (we got a new supervisor). we’re used to being short staffed anyway
