Alright, on a mission to find a good grad school to earn a MBA in business management.

I currently live in ct and am looking to get out of here asap.

I'm looking for a school that is more focused on the MBA programs rather then undergrad degrees meaning since I will be on my own living in a new city or wherever I would like to meet many other graduate students.

Any experiences with any good grad schools guys? I also graduated from a smaller university so getting in to harvard and other top schools I dont think is possible.

It's right smack dab in the middle of kansas city, so there's a lot to do around it. KC is pretty cheap to live in too.

I believe Auburn has a pretty good MBA program if you're willing to travel down south. I've really enjoyed my time here.
