For anybody following this story, I've thrown an additional complication into the mix. I went looking though MBA program rankings, and I've grown interested in the Arizona State University Online MBA. It's taught by the same faculty as in their brick-and-mortar classes, and it sounds like it packs a lot more punch than most general MBA's.

Trouble, though, is that (a) it's a two-year cohort program, so I can't adjust it to work around my schedule, and (b) it costs $40,000, twice as much as at the local private university (the one with the healthcare-specific MBA). The additional cost is certainly not to be taken lightly, but if I'm going to get an MBA, why not spend more for a Top 50 school? The college's prestige would probably help to counteract the "Internet college" perception.
