gracias. I like the format. Basically a streamlined MBA w/o marketing, etc and focusing on legal representation.

Wish you luck, OP

Exactly. Basically, the MBA for the entrepreneurial track is on the decline. Less and less people are doing it, and largely for the same reason: the best startup experience is to join a startup. But let's say you want to learn the skills of lawyering AND you like startups. Why do the MBA? Work with startups in a legal capacity from day 1 (classes+practicum) and hit the ground running.

Do you know how much more it costs? And if I were granted a scholarship already before applying to the program, could I ask to be reconsidered and would this be a significant factor in granting me more money?
