as in, M.S. and J.D.

but really, it depends on what you want to do.  I started off in science, planning to go into academia, and then realized that was not a good way to effect change.  scientists shy away from being involved in social/political issues, and the ones who don't tend to lose credibility amongst their peers.  thus, I am going from a Master's to a J.D instead of a Master's to PhD.  but like I said, it really depends on what you want to do.  I strongly recommend talking to a lot of people in both fields.
