Long-distance relationship *sigh*

Thank goodness for this forum...I'm not sure anyone else would appreciate how ECSTATIC I am right now.  Just found a hidden fee waiver from University of Michigan - my most exciting fee waiver yet!  YAY!!!   ;D

Got a teaser from Northwestern... I requested an info packet from a them a few weeks ago and they sent an email today to follow up... I saw their name in the inbox and got excited.  No fee waiver.    :'(

Same thing happened to me.   :(

I got the hidden fee waiver for Duke, but no email.  What's up with that?  :-\

Law School Admissions / Re: JD/MBA... best school?
« on: October 27, 2007, 10:27:05 AM »
I've looked at several JD/MBA programs and, for me, the ones that stand out as having a strong law school AND business school are: UPenn, UMich, Northwestern and Duke.  Of course, Harvard and Yale would be great, but not exactly realistic in my situation.

Also, I think the discouragement toward the JD/MBA program on this forum is a little over-stated.  It all depends on your career aspirations.  If you would like to go the corporate route as in-house legal counsel, the JD/MBA would be useful.  Likewise, if you are considering solo practice (which is, first and foremost, a business), the JD/MBA would have its benefits.  Even in BigLaw, managing partners often have business degrees in addition to their JD's - though I would expect many go back after years of legal practice.

My advice: spend some serious time thinking about what you want to do with you degree(s) after graduation, then figure out what program will best enable you to accomplish those goals.

Law School Admissions / Re: Advice please...3.96/168

T-14 Aspirant:  Thanks for the reply.  I think I've decided to forego the Dec LSAT, as well, and focus on getting my apps in early and really emphasizing those soft factors, as you mentioned.

All is not lost, we just might have to try a little harder to gain admittance.  Who knows, maybe that grit and determination will come across positively to the ad comms - we can only hope.  Best of luck to you!  :)
