I am going to law school because I did not major in business or econ
and I would NEVER degrade myself by taking non 6 figure income.
Please don't compare law school with business school.
These days if you want to be at the top you need both JD and an MBA.
Why do I sense hostility from you? Is it becasue I sound cocky? That I am a Northwestern Law student? Give me a break.
I looked at the profiles of some CEOs and noticed something quite interesting. I saw that some of them graduated from a undergrad program and then just 2 years later graduated from a MBA program? So does that mean in the past (10,20 years ago) the MBA didn't require work experience and only recently made it a requirement because of increased competition, interest etc.
Okay okay I'll be honest. But you seem like a person who might think this is a bad reason.
I decided to become an attorney few years back. At that time none of my friends majoring in econ and business had a job. So I was going around talking **** on them that I was gonna go to law school and make 6 figure starting salary while they will be working at some business firm making less than me.
Now all of them got a job at top ibanking firms. One of them is an associate at a ibanking firm. And now I want to do ibanking because it seems like more money.
Is this not good enough?
Sakky, which school do you go to? Are you even in an MBA program?
Law degree is not just a professional degree. It will change the way you think and make you more prestigious. Although with tons of sub-par schools out there the legal profession is in decline.
