I plan on doing the MBA/JD program. I think it is great. It only cost about 10K more (depending on which school you go to) and you do your MBA in about 1-2 extra semesters. What you do is you first apply to law school. Then once you get into law school, then you apply to their MBA program. The classes for your MBA do not start until your second year of law school. Your first year is all law classes. Everyone I have talked to said that if you can get accepted into their law school, then you will have no problem getting into their business school. It is definetly worth it. You get an extra degree in less time (way less!) then if you were to do them seperately. Who wouldnt love to get an MBA in a couple semesters? I am not sure what type of law you want to do, but if you are planning on going into business or corporate law, this is a must. It looks great to have both a JD and an MBA. As far as other law, I think that it is still a great opportunity. I think that anyone who doesnt take advantage of it is stupid. If you want to know anything else, let me know. Ciao
How will the JD/MBA affect your studies? Would you do a JD/MBA if it meant "extra distraction" and a few notches lower in your class ranking in law school? Or is it really that easy to do both and not lose focus? Also, do you guys know that some schools charge 200+ for B-School application fee!?!? What a racket!
