Hi, I am a high school senior who has applied to several undergraduate business schools. I am interested in business law and would like to pursue a JD/MBA joint degree. Which schools around the East Coast have the best JD/MBA program that is geared towards finance, international relations, communications, and management? (I was looking into Wharton's, Harvard's, and Stern's, and those would be the sort of joint programs I am interested in).
Also, with the economy as is, should I go to my state school's honors program (which has a decent but not stellar business program) for free and transfer after my first/second year, or should I go to a better undergraduate business school and pay more money? I am inclined to do the first to save some money, but I am not sure. Transferring would open up doors to new programs, like McIntire's and Haas's, and would give me the chance to work at for a year at my high school, but I would not be able to build long-time relations with my teachers/peers if I choose to do so and have to stay longer (take more classes) to finish college.
Thank you for responding.
