And how is the JD going to help you with investment banking? Just get some more work experience, save the money, and get your MBA.
A JD is for being a lawyer. That's it.
I can only get a lab tech job. I can't get any other job really. How do I get a prestegous job? MBA requires prestegous jobs! You can get into IB w/ a top Jd.
Look, your obsession with "prestege" is something you share in common with a lot of prospective law students. But you're really misconstruing how a JD works.
A JD is a professional degree. It is only useful if you want to be a lawyer. Think of it like medical school. An MD from JH is really prestigious. Would you get an MD to go into investment banking?
Thank you for your advice. I really like all the help and am really considering things at this point. Have not made up mind on anything, thank you!
Here is what I was thinking:
Well the difference is that, a lot of consultancies and IB will hire u if you have a JD. an MD is useless for that.
Here is the thing: I can get into a top law school, but not a top business school. Also, I cna probably get a scholarship from a top law school. So in fact, it will be cheaper than business school since business schools don't give out too many scholarships. Business schools look a lot for business experience, which I don't really have.
As for law: I would not mind practicing law. I want prestegous b.c that is what employers want. So I think also that a JD/MBA program from a top school would also be good for me.
Now I was looking at JD/MBA graduates from top programs, and they are all doing well. Big law or Investment banking (IB) or hedge funds. Like, 100%. By contrast, I looked at MBA and JD alone grads from top programs, and alot of them are not doing so well. Like, a sizable number are lawyers at small firms, or in lower positions at companies, etc. I did not find a single JD/MBA who is not in a good position.
I looked on Linkin. So overall, it seems like JD/MBA from a top school (NOT a bottom school) would be a really good choice.
I mean I think this makes sense, right?
Thank you again for everything!
