Which T7 school allow transfer students pursue joint degree?

Postby alexnapolchill » Mon Nov 11, 2013 10:29 am

I am planning to transfer T7 and I would like to apply JD/MBA joint degree. I have checked official websites of Upenn and Harvard. Upenn directly deny such possibility, while Harvard mentioned nothing about such approach. Do anyone know about this information?

Thanks!

just don't plan on doing either

at most of the t7 schools, their MBA programs are already going to be pretty competitive if not very competitive

on top of that, you can't guarantee at all that you'll be able to transfer to the law school, let alone get in and then try and simultaneously get into the MBA

You can plan on transferring just as much you can plan on being in the top 10%. Retake instead, its far easier.

How is Penn explicitly denying you the opportunity to apply to the dual degree?

It says:

If denied, can I reapply after I start as a 1L at the Law School?
Yes, you may reapply after you start at Penn Law but you may not apply as a 1L at another law school and transfer into the program. All applicants are required to apply during Rounds 1 or 2
