It dosn't have to make sense. Lots of people do it an ABA schools all the time.
MD not as much. Different worlds, different people.

A lot of people go to law school after a coin toss between it an MBA, and often don't really need either.


Other examples include people who want to be politicians, climb up in corporations, etc.

Ask yourself this to help it make more sense: Why would anyone bother with a joint JD/MBA if people only wanted the minimum? More on point to the question you asked why bother to get a joint JD/MD (many do) afterall you are not going to be doing both with that degree.
Yet, life goes on.


LincolnLover that is an awesome picture in your profile. Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard and does not have a degree. What do you think of him?

I think of him as a mathmatical anomaly. People use comparisons like that all the time. In reality that is the same idea as comparing the mega millions lottery winner to the average person. It could happen, it just won't. And besides Gates went to school to get somewhere then dropped when he was ready to start his dream company, not even close to the idea of working for others and hoping they will see how you are somehow better than those more qualified than you. Apples to Organes at best.

It wasn't like he won the lottery. He applied his knowledge. The lottery is all luck.

Right. Back to this guys post. Is getting a law degree worth it if you work in a government agency?

I don't think it would be unless their are attorneys that work within his agency and he wants to apply and I wouldn't choose Novus.

He never asked about Novus. That was someone else's side tangent.

You guys get mad serious on these boards. Is it really that serious to you? I'm not into analyzing every little thing on these boards. I'm just killing time. I thought he said Novus. Oh well he didn't.

They have a word for that, it's called flame or troll.

If you don't think law school is serious go to trade school and drive truck for Walmart.

Perhaps you don't know what "guest" means on this board. Why waste your time asking questions to the dead?
