Law School vs Masters vs PhD

Postby mponce » Thu Apr 30, 2015 10:28 am

I'm interested in public policy work, and I'm not sure if it is best to come from a JD or a masters/PhD. I thought taking time to work before grad school would help me figure that out, but I can't get the jobs I want without another degree. When I look at jobs online that I want to qualify for, there is a mixture of requiring a JD, a Masters in International Affairs of Public Policy, and a Masters in Journalism (which I heard is not worth it).

Is anyone out there interested in the same thing? Did you find it beneficial to go to law school?

What jobs are you looking at and what is your GPA/LSAT?
