Where should I go next fall? / JD or DBA or both?
« on: April 09, 2013, 08:35:25 AM »
I am torn between a JD or pursuing a Doctoral of Business.  I would love to do both, not at the same time (that's just crazy!).  Both degrees take a minimum of three years, most likely longer for me since I still have to work and can do a JD part-time or write a dissertation that takes some people years to finish. 

The DBA program I am looking at has a focus on Supply Chain and Logistics.  This is ideal for me and the easy choice since I work in logistics for the federal government.

A JD could be beneficial because I don't want to do logistics forever and would love to move over to the contract side of what we do because of all the stuff I see that could be fixed if someone knew both sides of how things work, (maybe I'm just a naive idealist in this aspect).

I would love to do both programs since I truly believe that I could make an impact knowing both sides of the business.  I can only do the DBA online because the program is not offered anywhere near me here in Florida.  There is at least Florida Coastal School of Law here, a T4 ABA juggernaut.  I'm prepping for the LSAT in June. 

I know that I probably answered my own question about which program to do first but would still love to hear the pros/cons of doing both degrees over time.

Studying for the LSAT / Is LSAT prep course worth it?
« on: April 03, 2013, 01:23:12 PM »
I'm debating taking an LSAT prep course.  In my current situation I can only do a part-time evening program that may or may not be offered at Florida Coastal this fall.  If not offered then my only choices are online law school, not a fan of it personally but I will do what I must to get a JD.  I have a family to support which is why I can't quit my day job.  So, is an $800 or more prep course really worth the investment?  I want to take the LSAT regardless and do my best but Florida Coastal is the nearest law school to me that might offer a program to fit my schedule.  Any suggestions on prep courses?  I was looking at Princeton Review and Blueprint so far.
