with all the night school options today for adults wanting to continue their education, an MBA has never meant less.
if you have $6k, you're in.
I'm sure it's different in other fields, but in business, it's meaningless and the only people who are impressed or care about advanced degrees are dinosaurs on their way out within the decade.
agree ... but as you said depends on the degree and chosen profession
if you are undecided for part of college and get below average grades - your career paths become fewer
the better the grades the more options exist - students with average or below average grades get funneled to professions/careers that do not require very good/elite grades to advance
I also tell people to "win the ties" -- there may be a large number of candidates for a particular job - an MBA may be a tie breaker - an MBA from a more prestigious program may be a further tie breaker - likely doesn't mean they will perform better but might get you in the door
