The Kellogg JD/MBA is interesting. I just wonder what a top-flight law firm thinks of those law degrees. No LSAT required? Done in three years WITH an MBA? It sounds sort of watered down. Other JD/MBAs take four years.
Read into the program a little further... it's not just three academic years, it's THREE HARD years of sweat, blood, and tears with minimal breaks. The avg. GMAT for the select few that are
admitted is now over 700 and most candidates do take the LSAT as well.
I wonder if there is a more demanding joint JD/MBA program on the planet? It would take some serious multitasking just to "hack it" between both schools under the time constraints (especially in year 3). Curious as to what Pelihu has to say about this...
