Agreed. I had a friend who got sucked into that stuff and he was truly more awkward and annoying to be around than anything.


Was his name Johnny 'Drama' Chase by any chance?

In the words of Shakespeare (or not) a facetious thread doth requires a facetious response. I'm all for moving this to Off-Topic.

And in case anyone is even the slightest bit offended, I was being VERY tongue in cheek.

So...

"Don't Praet me, bro!"

U sure about that solaris1? I was officially offended. I do support you moving this thread to off-topic though! Although the presence of Praetorian does legitamize the existing of this thread.

i assume that MBA/JD mixers are pretty common...usually JD students are a couple of years younger as they tend to come right out of undergrad. i see a lot of potential here.

You might find a few women in law school that think there is something wrong with a person that "only" goes into business. I've seen some people have the idea such as "Well, you're doing business. It's not like you have to pass an exam to be licensed to practice business." Just be prepared to meet some jerks. Mainly the guys trying to "protect" the women law students from any other grad student intruders.

That's when you whip out your Goldman Sachs offer letter and show the JD guys whose boss.

Especially if you approach it with the attitude that a woman would want to be with you because of you, not because of a JD or MBA. That's real and I believe women appreciate that more than "Hey, look at me, I'm getting an MBA from _______." If they're already in law school, they'll think "So?", or they'll think, "Ok, so he confirms that MBA = "Must Be an Ass" I actually heard that from a guy who was a dual degree JD/MBA at my law school.

agold, i am NOT saying you're an ass lol just so we're clear

On one hand you have a guy with a few years of real-world experience under his belt who is 26-28 years old and on the other hand you have a broke college kid who is 23-24. Big difference in maturity levels, thought processes, etc. I doubt the law school guys will prove to be any serious competition :)

haha, I was getting ready to use my fire extinguisher...but I see that there is no need this time.

In my opinion, the average top-15 law school student isn't competition to the average top-15 b-school student. Law school students have a bigger potential of being nerds (all you need to do is kill the LSAT).

Is it bad if Tucker Max has actually increased my interest in Duke?

I recommend anyone who enjoys edgy comedy to read the book. It's one of my favorite books of all time. He does argue that UNC has way hotter girls than Duke though.

chances of losing your spouse during your MBA (or shortly there after) are much greater than meeting them from what I have heard.


so the take away is don't get married before b-school, do it after b-school.

I'm using that excuse with my girlfriend.
