Is this ever a good idea?
I fully committed to applying by the December deadline just a few weeks ago. The problem is that my current position is very demanding. There is simply no way that I can work the hours that I do while giving serious time to GMAT prep and my bschool apps. I need to either quit and give it my all starting NOW or stay for another year. I am in a very good spot but I am really not happy currently and I don't believe that staying makes any sense at all. However, I have heard that applying to school while unemployed is not a good idea.
How much does it hurt to be unemployed while applying? Is there anything that I could do in the free time that I would have if I quit that would look good to the admissions counselors?
Please advise if you have any helpful information. This is a very confusing time for me so any advice is greatly appreciated.
