Relaxed WE requirements for JD/MBA

Postby expat » Mon Jan 11, 2010 4:00 am

I am curious what nullification effect, if any, significant in-school employment has on the dreaded "straight from undergrad" disadvantage when applying to B-schools. Specifically, I have worked 1500-2000 hours per year every year of undergrad across several positions, including what amounts to about half-time employment over the last 3 years in an MIS role at a fairly large bay area non-profit. It's not exactly 5 years of full-time banking, but does this experience count for anything? Would it be enough if I were to apply to an MBA program as a joint degree during 1L year at a T6 law school?

Any advice about specific programs or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated.

Anybody familiar with this situation? Surely there must be some UG -> JD/MBA people on this board...

i plan on pursuing a jd/mba in the fall and have relatively no work experience. i am however, under the impression that jd/mba is kind of the way to get into business school without needing much work experience. although someone else probably could answer better than me, i'd be curious to get a more educated answer on this

I am also curious about this, as I am coming straight out of undergrad (a BBA program), and would be interested in getting a JD/MBA if I could get into the MBA program at the school I end up in law school at.
