Business Degree and BigLaw?

Postby art vandelay » Fri Jul 31, 2009 3:24 am

Out of curiosity, to what extent might having a business-related undergraduate degree aid one in obtaining a biglaw gig? Particularly one that involves corporate/transactional work?

I haven't heard that it's really any benefit, but I'm just wondering.

...you're not talking about importing/exporting are you? bc that may create a problem.

Sort of confirms what I'd thought. Of course, law degrees are in similar oversupply, with regards to "dime a dozen"...

a dime a dozen x a dime a dozen = you're about a dollar in a dollar 44

No - "a dime a dozen" means you can buy a dozen of them for a dime. So he'll be in a situation where he's worth 100/144 cents (or 25/36), about $0.70.

first of all, that would mean about $0.007

second of all, I thought it meant "there are 10 of them for every 12" as in, he is just like everyone else. AKA the given attribute is something very ordinary and indistinguishable.
