Should I take the dive?

I'm very sick of my job. There's a lot of burnout where I work, and many of my friends here have just quit their jobs with no other employment lined up. This decision seems to have worked for most of them - we're fortunate to be in an industry that is hiring, so nearly everyone who has quit has found a job (and those who haven't aren't complaining :)). They're encouraging me to quit if I feel like it, and honestly I feel like it's time.
But I'm in a slightly different position - I'm planning to start MBA apps this summer for the 2011, and I'm worried that quitting my job will reflect poorly on me when I am applying for grad school.
So - am I sinking my chances of getting into a great MBA program if I quit just before starting my applications in earnest?
