Re: JD/MBA - Yale or Chicago

Postby Glacial » Tue Apr 26, 2016 11:17 pm

I think JD/MBA combos only make sense for schools like Chicago and Penn. If your ultimate goal is "a comfortable lifestyle" out of the big cities, YLS alone will give you that. But if you really want an MBA (for whatever reason), you can do it after law school. Moreover, having YLS on your resume will most likely get you into HBS or Stanford.

On the other hand, I'm not sure YLS is worth 110K more in debt than Chicago law school. You should first decide where you want to go to law school and only then consider an MBA as a (marginal) plus. Don't let the MBA influence your primary choice of law school. But if you're sure about Chicago, then I see no reason for not doing JD/MBA there.

Because if you want to edit out a title you can't leave it completely blank.

Where did you hear this? Have you heard that HBS is not permitting joint degrees with other law schools in general, or just YLS? Thanks.

Edited to fix the quote link.
