Boy I sure go from strength to strength with my posts (see previous post here: https://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/mba-change-...).
Since the time of my last post I've made commitments to a routine study plan. I've familiarised myself with the majority of content, made notes and have taken a second test, scoring in the low 500s.
All this has been an immense struggle with the current sell-side deal i'm managing and it's definitely taking a toll on my health.
I want to take time off to prepare for the GMAT as It is proving too difficult to do so with the current and foreseeable work-load. I have approximately 2 weeks leave in the bank which I don't believe sufficient enough.
I'm considering taking unpaid leave (I won't have enough annual leave saved) for a month to prepare for this, which I believe sufficient. For those who were in similar positions, I wanted to understand your thoughts around this move and any advice you can part.
