MBA/JD Dual Degree

<p>I'm still in college, going to be a junior. I am preparing for law school entrance in two years.</p>

<p>I always considered in the back of my mind that I would do a dual degree, or eventually earn an MBA in the future, but I never gave much thought to it. Now, as I study for the LSAT, I know that I should be focusing my efforts on GMAT and the bschool process too.</p>

<p>Which JD/MBA programs are top ranked? And when is ideal to take the GMAT, if I want to do the program directly after graduating from college? Altho I know that most bschools require work experience, I know some do not.</p>

<p>What are my options, if I want to get into a MBA/JD program right after college? Thanks!</p>

<p>Just get into the best law school you can get into. You won't be able to get into a top business school yet.</p>

<p>First off you determine what kind of job and career you want out of getting JD/MBA. They both allow you work in business & law. What career you're looking for?</p>

<p>I want to practice business/international law, but I want to work in publishing or media eventually. I think the JD/MBA will help me in getting where I want to go in any firm I might want to work at. On the other hand, I might want to practice law for the rest of my life. That part isn't decided, but I am decided on the JD/MBA, either doing them separately or at once.</p>

<p>I don't believe Penn has a work requirement for the MBA? I know that Wharton is one of the best MBA programs in the country - however, how does Penn Law stack up? I know it's a top 10, but compared to Columbia, how good is it? I know the top three are Yale Harvard Stanford.</p>

<p>I don't know of any graduate business schools that have a definitive work I guess you can go wherever you want. What have you accomplished in life? Did you cure cancer or something?</p>

<p>Actually Harvard business school offers that 2+2 where you work 2 years & go to school 2 years later. It secures your position in the school and all you'll have to worry it being accept to their law school during your 2 year time period.</p>

<p>Thats a pretty good plan actually syncastar.</p>

<p>I also heard that using the MBA/JD rule people could "bypass" the recommended two years of work needed for the MBA. Basically they enter the law school right after the undergrad and apply for the MBA school during their first year. Thoughts?</p>
