Raise Your Hand If Grad School Is Looking More Appealing

Per usual in a weak economy that's spurned hundreds of thousands of layoffs, business school admissions have seen the number of applicants jump visibly. Some workers strategize it's the best option for boosting their resumes and setting themselves up for a better job offer once the market picks up again.

It's not the safest of havens as many rely on student loans to pay tuition and there aren't any promises that opportunity will be knocking on the other side of their degrees. It does seem that everyone knows someone who has taken the GMAT and considered applying to B-School, but their consideration does not guarantee admission and the competition will be more fierce as applicant pools grow.
