MBA applies to law school.Is that a plus?

Hi all,

I already have a graduate degree: MBA (GPA=3.6). How will I be treated if I apply to law school?

Regards,
Peter

You will be treated relatively the same.  The schools want to admit a diversity of applicants, so a couple of students with MBA's may help the school look more diverse.  But the advantage of having a combined JD/MBA in the job market is nil, unless you already have a position that wants you to have the JD.  All in all, being a minority applicant would probably help you more than having an MBA, as rediculous as that sounds.
