Does acceptance into one grad program help your application? [#permalink] New post 22 Aug 2004, 20:11
Hi,

I'm trying to pursue the JD/MBA at Stanford next year. I've already locked in my position at the law school (1 year deferral granted), and I'd like to know if that will give me an edge of any kind in my MBA application.

If it does give me an edge, could you quantify how big of an edge i'm looking at?

Thanks!

Hi,

Is the Law School willing to help you with the MBA admissions? Law schools often have informal channels of communication with the associated business school (and v.v.) to assist students accepted by one program gain admission to the other. This is generally an unofficial route with no guarantees.

Hmm, not quite sure. Thats an avenue definately worth exploring, I suppose I'll wait until I get my GMAT score to see if I need to put some leg work in.

Officially it does not give you a leg up. You need to qualify indepedently at each school. But unoffiically... I think that's a different story. I can't tell you how much it helps however.

Good luck!
