Joint Degree consideration

Hey all,
I'm planning on applying to a joint degree program of JD/MURP (masters in urban planning) and i'm curious if that gives any added benefit to the admission process? Like am I more likely to be accepted because I want to do two things instead of just pursuing a law degree?

I don't think it makes you more likely to be accepted because you usually need to be accepted to each individual program.

This. It's entirely possible to only be admitted to one of the programs when you apply for a dual degree.
