JD/MBA/JCL (or STD)

Postby TTH » Sat Jul 31, 2010 11:53 pm

So, I'm starting law school this fall and am doing JD/MBA, since having that extra degree would make me an extra attractive job candidate. After all, I would be able to advise my employer on matters of the business as well as legal issues . With student loan debt being what it is, though, I've gotten really worried about the investment and have decided to pursue either a Licentiate of Canon Law or a Doctorate of Sacred Theology after law/business school. Once I'm done, I'll be taking Holy Orders, including the Vow of Poverty, so at that point my student loan debt won't be too big an issue.

Has anyone ever pursued this path? It's so hard to pick a good school because all the great private schools are Protestant-affiliated and I don't want to wind up at a TTT seminary. I as thinking either Notre Dame or the Jesuit College of Theology at Berkeley.

What advice do you have for me to be a top candidate after school? I'm looking for at least a metropolitan diocese with real chances of advancement on the Bishop-track in an Anglophone country, preferably not the U.S. since I'll be in default on my loans. Thoughts?

There is a worldwide shortage of Clergy in the Church, and it is time conscientious (and highly-credentialed) Catholics stepped up. I'm just trying to do my part.

JD/MBA/Syphilis is best, IMO.

I almost didn't lock this because I loled at "TTT Seminary." But I'm locking it anyway.
