Consulting and finance is not practicing law. You don't sound like you want to practice law. You can work in business but have a lot of interaction with lawyers without getting a law degree. You can take business law classes while you get your MBA. I highly recommend that you get some post-UG work experience though, to help clarify what exactly you want before you invest hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Regardless of your career goals, if you come to Northwestern thinking a NU JD is a business+law hybrid degree, you'll be disappointed. Northwestern is a law school. I read the same marketing materials that you read about how Northwestern is business focused, but I haven't seen that to be true unless you get a JD/MBA. It has business law classes just like every other law school and you can take them, that's all. I happen to like it here, but that's because I want to be a lawyer who practices law.
