2L at NYU Law who wants to do JD/MBA [#permalink]
05 Oct 2013, 07:59
Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place; I'm new to gmatclub.
I'm strongly considering applying to Stern this fall or over winter break (depending on when I take the GMAT), and I have a few questions.
Given that I'm already a second-year student at the law school, would it be easier to gain admission to the business school? I ask because I've heard that NYU is actively trying to expand the JD/MBA program.
Do business schools prefer the GMAT or the GRE? I have yet to take either test, but I was leaning towards taking the GRE because it is administered by the same testing company as the SAT, which I did pretty well on (2380).
Is it possible to get admitted with limited work experience? I'm 22, which I'm assuming is younger than the average age of business school applicants, but I really want to get the MBA while I'm still in school (it would save a year of tuition).
This summer, I'll be summering at a large law firm, and I hope to receive a permanent offer to return. I think an MBA would further my career goals, however, because I want to do corporate law. I'm very interested in the intersection between business and law, and I love NYU, so spending another year here would be great. I also think the MBA would improve my exit options (e.g., in house) if/when I leave biglaw, and it would give me access to another year of fall recruiting.
