Is there any particular work experience that would help me get into a top 10 school? I currently work in the finance department of a marquee NFL team (two years out of school). Many higher ups in pro sports have a JD. I've been thinking for years about getting a JD, maybe an MBA too. Now I have another motive. I figure given the fact schools like to recruit a well-rounded class from a diverse background, and since pro sports is a really popular/unique industry that lots of people want to work in, it might make my application more attractive.
