NU JD/MBA - able to apply as 1L?

Postby niederbomb » Fri Jan 07, 2011 7:18 am

Basically, what opportunities exist to back door into this program? Sufficient to say, my GPA and LSAT are above median for the law school.

I am not ready for the GMAT quant section, and it's already late in the cycle. I HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION.

I think NU offers a traditional 4 year JD/MBA as well. You can't apply to the three year program as a 1L.

Do you have a link?

The only info I could find was about their 3-year program.

I honestly only looked into the three year program, but almost every school with an accelerated JD/MBA seems to offer a traditional option as well.

As far as I know there is no 4-year program anymore. I think they kept it for a couple years as part of a transition phase, but I'm pretty sure they no longer offer it. However, it is possible to apply into the 3-year program as a 1L, it's just difficult, although if you have good 1L grades, a good GMAT score, and work experience, you'd have a strong chance.
