graduate degree.

Postby delhigirl28 » Sat Sep 10, 2011 5:23 pm

does a graduate degree help in law school admissions? I have an MBA( 1 year ). I know that my transcripts will be sent to law schools, but I am not sure if it would help( or even go against my application ). Should I hold that information off?

You don't have this option.

A graduate degree is a soft; it may help you a little bit but it won't be a game-changer.

Graduate degrees seem to help some people more than others. The standard view is that it depends on factors like: (a) where the degree is from - a Harvard MBA and a University of Phoenix MBA are two entirely different things; (b) whether it fits with your stated career plans and/or makes you look more employable; (c) what your grades were; et cetera.

Of course, as stated above, it's a soft either way - nothing matters as much as your LSAT score and UG GPA.
