Just got in off the waitlist and I'm super stoked! Are the admitted JD/MBA's planning on attending admit weekend at Northwestern Law, at Kellogg, or at both?

I actually found out February 23. Just waited this long to ask. R2 admits will come out a week before....so probably this week?

Did you notice if JD/MBA decisions came out randomly through the broader Kellogg notification process, or if they were clustered together?

The JD-MBA decisions seem to have been random. I just got my admit email last night (5:30 PM Chicago time), but I saw others were accepted days ago.

Separately, any other JD-MBA admits just now realizing that financial aid is done through the law school? I'm scrambling to submit my additional paperwork but worry I may be excluded from consideration for scholarships/grants. Anyone know the details on this?

My understanding is that if everything is submitted by the 28th, we will still be considered for scholarships, etc. However, since the law school students received their notifications before we did, I don't know how much would be remaining. Perhaps there are certain funds allocated to JD/MBA students?

As for admitted students weekend, my plan is to attend the law school event rather than DAK.

First of all, congrats everyone!! I'm a big fan of Kellogg, and am debating whether to apply to the JD-MBA program or just the 2-yr MBA program in the next application season.

I never intend to practice law, so JD is the icing on the cake. (I also don't want to study for the LSAT, so NW is the only JDMBA program on the table, in addition to the MBA-only programs.) I like the additional JD for intellectual reasons and for the credibility it brings in the business world. But I've also heard sound arguments against it:

0. Tuition & expenses: the extra year will cost me at least another 75k
1. Opportunity cost: if someone is determined on the JD and is considering adding the MBA, doing so adds no opportunity cost and might be worth a try. But for people like me, the 3-yr JDMBA means one additional year's forgone salary compared to the other 2-yr MBA programs.
2. Benefits are not quantifiable: Since I don't intend to practice law, I will be competing with the Kellogg students. I'll get the same salary for the same position. Despite of having 75k more in debt, I'll be treated like a regular Kellogg MBA in the job market.
3. The chances of being at the top of class (from an uncle who has a JD from a top law school): Law school is a lot of work. I had no problem in college getting A's on the bell curve, but most of the other kids in college didn't treat schoolwork as a full-time job. Everyone in a top law school does, therefore I'll be working my butt off for a degree that's not even required for my post-MBA job.

At the end of the day, if debt was not such a huge issue, I think I will enjoy law school (even 1L) even just for its own sake. A question for you guys: Did you get scholarship generous enough to cover at least the extra year's tuition?

Thanks in advance!

Hello all,

For those of you who were admitted to the Kellogg JD/MBA program, do you have any words of advise? What were your GMAT scores? Did you find the competition to be extremely fierce?
