No, you do NOT want a JD/MBA. The MBA won't help you get a job in law. And if you don't want a job in law, why they hell are you in law school in the first place?

This guy is awesome....Why would you ever get an advanced degree?  What a horrible idea.

I agree with the statements regarding summer jobs.  If you can't work, it doesn't matter if you get an MBA because you wont have a job.  However, if you have connections in i-banking, a JD/MBA would be extremely valuable.  My uncle is an investment banker in Dallas, and I have discussed this with him in the past.  There is a special niche of i-banking for individuals who have a JD.  Their help with the negotiation process is an important part of i-banking, and from what he said, they seem to be very involved in the actual financial transaction when they graduate vs. the financial modeling that is more "behind the scenes"(typical for new-grads)

How about your Dean of Students?  Typically this would fall under an administrative duty.  It seems like the Dean of Students would be the perfect liaison to help...

Do you think a Poli-Sci degree will help people tremendously in law school?  I was a finance major, but one of my roomates who was poli-sci seems to know a ton of case law/ common law.  Should I be worried?

Does anyone know about the OU Early Admissions Program?  I was accepted, however I have no real idea what the program is.  My admissions letter was extremly vague...any help?

I think you need a powerful sentence vs. a paragraph.  Consider: ”If I am offered admissions at the University of -------- I will accept immediately without reservations."  I think if you put this in italics, so it stands out in the letter, it will help.  I used this to get off a waitlist, and it worked...
