I'm a not currently enrolled in graduate school, but seriously considering it. Sometimes, I wonder if it is more work than I'm wanting to deal with because right now I'm full-time employed with a family.
The reason I would consider going back to school is for teaching. Honestly, I don't see myself working in business (I'm a CPA) forever. For the time being, it is suitable but here at a public accounting firm or working for a private company just doesn't doesn't seem to fit in the long term. What I can envision myself doing is teaching at a university. It just seems like a long road to get there.
Here is a question - how long did it take you to apply, take the applicable exams, and start classes? I wonder if I'm too late for this upcoming fall semester.
