Does anyone else find it odd that to be admitted to the Northwestern JD/MBA, one needs only to take the GMAT, and not the LSAT?
i like this articlehttp://articles.moneycentral.msn.com/CollegeAndFamily/SavingForCollege/IsYourDegreeWorth1million.aspx
a lawyer can be a CEO, Vice President etc. an MBA can't be a lawyer...unless he goes to law school...make sense?
Quotea lawyer can be a CEO, Vice President etc. an MBA can't be a lawyer...unless he goes to law school...make sense?Well, if you become an important ($$$) enough CEO, you get to write checks to the GOP and you can write your own laws. Is that the same as being a lawyer?
The answer depends on whether you actually prefer the law. If you go to law school, do it because you love the law, not because you want to get rich. If you're coming out of college, and your primary goal is to get rich, go to work at an investment bank, brokerage house, real-estate development firm, or computer-technology company and learn how that businesses works. While you're there, think about starting your own business or going to business school. Having been out of law school for a few years, I can't help but smile when I see so many people obsessed with the law-school admissions process. Unfortunately, the primary impetus for this competition appears to be money. The ironic truth, however, is that even the people who go to the most prestigious schools and work for the most prestigious firms very rarely get rich, and the few who do get rich will nevertheless wind up making salaries that are dwarfed by those of successful businessmen. Look at Forbes's list of the 400 richest Americans. How many practicing lawyers made the list? One. How many people from the finance, real estate, and computer-technology fields made the list? Hundreds. Generally, law-school applicants fall into one of two categories: (1) those who have a genuine passion for the law; and (2) middle- and upper-middle-class kids who mistakenly think that practicing law is a good way to become rich. Of course, those who actually are rich know better. Indeed, very few children of the super rich go to law school, and even fewer go with the intention of practicing law. Why? Because they have no illusions regarding money.
