JD/MBAs

Postby JD=Doctor » Thu Sep 16, 2010 11:27 pm

Benefits - Disadvantages?


As well how does one go about applying to a school for that program...is the GMAT required...do you just get into the Law School and then decide....Do you specify in your LS app?

thanks!

I have a friend who's doing a joint degree program at Harvard. He recommends not starting until your second year of JD. Just what I've heard.

I talked to the Univ. of Washington dean about their dual JD/MBA (4 years), and she said some students reported feeling like "neither fish nor fowl." But the JD MBA might be worth it if you are going into corporate law for sure.

There is no other way. Either you are accepted to both programs at once or you apply to MBA during your first year at JD (or to JD during your first year at MBA if you get into that one first). Either way you don't start taking classes in the other school until your second year.

Sounds like a terrible use of time, energy and money. But it feeds your ego, go ahead. Some people like to masturbate to the alphabet soup next to their name. I just hope you learn something useful after 4 years.

It seems like it is only a good idea for people who have very specific career path goals or for those who can't decide if they want to be in business or law so just get both.
