Laura wrote in this same thread that she doesn't regret her education and I
posted that I regret not getting a formal one. I'd say, stick with it, cause
in five years, if you don't, you're not gonna have the time, money or energy
to do it. Do it. It's not like an employer is going to say, "MBA?! You don't
need that, you're not hired!" More likely, it will stick in their heads that
you're someone who didn't go the easy route.

Besides, think how easy life will seem when you're only working 10 hours a
day. =) Good luck!
