Dropping the "JD" from a dual JD/MBA - future return to law?

Postby draracle » Tue Feb 09, 2010 12:28 am

Hi, I'm a current 1L at a Tier 2 law school with a Tier 1 MBA program. I was just accepted into the MBA program. If I dropped from the law school altogether, and stayed in the MBA program (thereby giving me only 1 year left), could I conceivably go back to law school later?

Once I get an MBA from here and work for a few years, I could see myself going back...but only to a T1. Has anyone heard of someone doing this? How much will future law schools frown on the fact that I stopped attending LS for a year in the past? Obviously I would have to retake the LSAT. No more 158 for me, no sir.

Thanks for the responses

Maybe you could get some kick ass first year grades. Then apply elsewhere as a transfer student. Then if you get accepted ask to defer. But your plan sounds very risky if you want to be a lawyer. Good plan if you want a top MBA program only.
