I'm told that transferring into the JD/MBA program is super easy, you pretty much only need to take the GMAT, and you have until your third semester to decide to do so. You'll probably complete everything in four years, but can manage in three if you do coursework over the summers. If you have a scholarship, it will cover your extra year as well (provided you maintain the required standings). When I visited, the program was really hyped up, getting involved seemed like NO BIG DEAL, and people seem to make the decision well after they start school.

Just wondering what everyone thinks.

Case's business school is not the best, 75 in USNWR, and the stats are much less than what I would have assumed, but it would be nice to have both a JD and a MBA, especially since I want to go into in-house corporate counsel. I would have no problem getting in the business school either. My GPA is at their high end (90th percentile, business does 10-90th) and gmat is no problem since my practices surpass their 85th, so maybe a scholly too.

Any thoughts?


I was interested in the same thing for a lot of the same reasons. Very good question. :)

When I visited they really pushed the idea of their JD/MBA program on me as well. They talked about scholarships and cost and pretty much said which ever way it costs the less is how it will be on the books. (i.e. you get a full ride offer from the MBA program and $0 scholarship from their JD program, the business school will be your Host school and the law school will be your visiting school so the cost stays the lowest it can for you).

At this point Im aware that the possibility of recieving an unfavorable decision are very high but I just need to know asap, this cycle has been a long and tiring process and I just want to get it over with.


Hey, on 4/1/10 I was placed on the waitlist and got an email saying:

"Our class is now full and we will not be able to extend an offer of admission to you at this time. However, the potential withdrawal of admitted candidates may open additional places therefore; we have placed you on our spring/summer wait list."

I'm sure a lot of spots have opened up since the deposit deadline though.


I went into review on 3/24 and then into second review 4/1 and was accepted on 4/9. Unless I am the exception I don't think their class was full on 4/1.


You weren't waitlisted, though. I applied in February and got accepted three weeks later. The waitlist has a different set of rules, which are, sadly, rather unforgiving. Acash, I think it's great you're prepared to wait it out, but you should be prepared to wait all summer if you're really determined. A friend of mine waited until a few weeks before class started to choose his school because of waitlists. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. Did you do a LOCI (letter of continued interest)? If not, do it. Odds are a spot or two will open, but there's never any way to predict it. You should have a backup plan. Good luck.

What have you heard about the degree's usefulness outside of NEO? Preferably from someone other than Case. :) It is pretty low-ranked.

I'm seriously considering the Masters in Non-Profit Administration (or something like that) along with the JD. I also applied for the Social Justice full-tuition scholarship. I'm wondering if it would cover the fourth year (if I get it *crosses fingers, toes, eyes*), since the dual degree is going for the same purpose.

Yep, I wrote a LOCI, included an updated resume (shortly after applying, I took on a full time paralegal position), and am in the process of getting an additional LOR from an attorney here in the office. I understand my chances are slim and that I'll have to wait a while before I hear anything. I have a deposit down elsewhere, however.

Just thought I'd give a heads up to everyone who's looking for information on decisions.

I received my decision yesterday. I'm a splitter who applied very late and interviewed via phone at Case's request. I was offered a spot on the priority waitlist. Not really sure what that means as far as my chances but I am pretty disappointed because Case was one of my top choices and I fell in love with their International Law Center.

Looks like I'll be riding out the waitlist. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear.

No problem. Yeah, I received the e-mail yesterday at 5:00PM exactly. The e-mail said that there were an 'overwhelming number' of people who had already accepted their offers of admission and who had already submitted their first seat deposit so they were unable to offer me a seat at this time. The text of the letter implied that I was qualified enough and they wanted to admit me, but they just didn't have the space.

I knew I ran that risk when I applied so late (was out of my control, thought I was going to be abroad and was readying for next year's cycle when plans changed last minute) but it still stung.

I believe I went under committee review on 4/6? But I can't be entirely sure. I just had my phone interview early last week.

Thanks again! I guess the rest of us can expect a waitlist or a rejection. For those of you who have been accepted and have paid seat deposits but ultimately have your minds set on other schools I implore you to withdraw for the sake of us who are somewhat willing to ride out the waitlist. Remember guys no good deeds go unrewarded! :) :D

Anyone have a link that shows the cities most Case graduates end up working? I hear that Case is portable outside of Ohio but I'm wondering what specific cities most law students end up going to.

Is it just me or are those colors on the map way too unnecessarily similar to differentiate from one another? Why must you make me squint avvo?

Thanks for the link though :)

In on priority waitlist as of yesterday. Also on GW WL and accepted to St. Johns. Still waiting on Temple.

If I don't make it into GW - Case is my top choice.
