I am currently in medical school, but would like to someday in the future work in Big Law as well. Parlaying my experience as a physician into being a more effective lawyer. So my question is this... I am currently going to a state medical school, whose corresponding law school is T3. I could add in my JD, along with my MD, for two extra years and low cost but it is a T3 law school.
So would it be better to get the degree now, or wait and try and go to a top 10 school 15 years from now when I would be looking to transition careers. Would the MD, along with the JD from a lower tier school help me get the Big Law later on even though typically those jobs are reserved for teir 1 graduates?
Thanks for any thoughts!
(BTW- I don't intend for this to be a "Should I get a JD" thread, or a "what is the value of a MD/JD"... So preferably none of the "WHy in the world would you think about doing this..." comments
