Ok to let managers know you are applying to bschool?
So I'm approaching the end of my 1st year as an analyst at a BB and am getting ready to take the GMAT this summer with a plan of submitting bschool apps this fall for admission in fall 08. My question is how open should I be about my plans at the office. I'd need to ask for recommendations which would be a dead giveaway that I'm applying..but I'm concerned that this is a signal to my manager that I'm leaving after 2 years and he shouldn't consider me for a 3rd year promote or a big 2nd year bonus.
Also, anybody have tips for balancing the gmat with work? Anyone have any reviews of Manhattan GMAT?
