I am an undergrad student, 3rd year in college and still have a couple years before I get my bachelors because it took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do and I worked full time. I am going to obtain an MIS (Management Information Systems) degree which is something I am interested and believe is a good degree/industry.
The thing I want to start thinking about, though, is what to do after. I originally though I would get this degree and then maybe master in IT/IS or something like that but I've talked with people, advisers and people in that industry and they say the time and effort going into this may not be THAT beneficial which I tend to agree with. So then I was convinced I would graduate, go work for a couple years and then go get my MBA or even go straight into the program because I would prefer to do all of my schooling at once rather than come back later. Then I did more research and found out that getting an MBA right after undergrad isn't recommended unless you go to really good school, like top ten. Most programs want lots of relevant work experience...ect.
So recently I have been looking at a JD degree, which seems like a great option, a good degree and a decent match. My question is though, if I don't necessarily want to practice law, is this degree beneficial/helpful in other career choice other than just Law? Maybe for consulting, business, and that kind of thing. Also, which degree would be most effective on the job market, not taking the prestige of a certain school or top ten kind of program into consideration because I have no idea where I will obtain one yet. Which is better long term and short term?
Also, a less relevant point perhaps but maybe not: I have no interest in doing Math (Algebra, linear, calc, discrete, trig...ect) for a degree or a career. I am doing Business Calc for my undergrad but it's a one time thing. If I am not mistaken, the GMATs and GREs are, what, half math? Anyway, I would GREATLY appreciate anyone's thoughts, opinions, advice or anything else you can offer me. Sorry for the long thread.
