What's my next move?

Looking for digital ad strategy graduate programs in NYC. I've worked for almost 2 years (graduated college in the summer of 07) in web analytics/market research, and while I was laid off a few weeks ago, what I think I really want to do is make a career out of digital strategy (kind of a combo of both from what I understand).

Sacrifice, Future, Family, Bankruptcy...

I'm currently working on my MBA at a relatively prestigious business school and am coming to understand that my parents are in a grave financial situation that may lead to them having to file for bankruptcy. My father's been unable to get steady work for the last year or two and my mother's income isn't large enough to maintain the household and service their debt. In all likelihood they'll lose their house in two to three months unless something dramatic happens. I'm considering dropping out of school and returning home to help them weather the storm but I don't know a) if they'd be able to stomach it, b) whether I'd be able to find a job quickly enough to fend off the fallout, c) if I'm really serious about doing this, d) if this is the right thing for me to do, and e) what it'll mean for my future.

No more company-funded tuition reimbursement, how to afford grad school?

What kind of jobs are uniquely tailored to a JD/MBA?

What kind of jobs are open only to a JD/MBA, or would be likely to express a strong preference to someone with both degrees? I have a general idea, but I'm looking for specific examples so I could justify (or, if there are few/no examples, forget about) the time & expense of a dual degree (vs. only a JD).

Where to go from Dubai?

Where to go from Dubai? I'm going to Dubai in April with my Executive MBA program. I've read great posts on Dubai, but what would be the best place to go after for 4-5 days without breaking the bank. Sri Lanka? Cairo? I love history and sightseeing and likely won't get another opportunity for extensive global travel for some time. Basically, what's the best use of our time in this part of the world? Flying directly from Houston, so connecting cities are out.

What is the best degree to pursue? MBA v. MS

What do you think of a Masters in Information Technology versus an MBA? I am passionate about new media/emerging tech but also know I want to be in business. Would I be cutting off too many options if I just went for an MS versus an MBA? What about dual degrees? Do they exist at top institutions?

Should I get my Master's in Accounting instead of MBA?

How do I sign back up for B-School spam?

A couple years ago, I took the GMAT and thus got subscribed (to be fair, I think I opted in) to get on a bunch of schools' marketing lists. I seem to have fallen off of that list, despite the fact that right now I am starting to seriously look into MBA programs. How do I get back on the "please spam me" list for B-Schools?

Should I borrow $80K to finance my business school education?

Right now, I plan to start business school in the fall. It's a top five program, and in all likelihood, my salary after school will be about twice what I make now. That said, I'll be borrowing about $80K to cover the costs in the short-term. Is this a good idea? I'm excited about b-school in general but perhaps not to the extent that I'm willing to incur a debt that will burden me for decades to come.
