This will be somewhat speculative as some of the numbers are either estimates, or what I consider to be "doable" goals. This is due to the fact that I am still probably at least 3 years away from applying to schools, but would still like to have an idea of what type of schools I should be shooting for and where I can improve my application. But, anyway, here goes.
Languages: Conversational Spanish and Mandarin Chinese, Written Latin
GMAT: 720 - this is a goal as of now, I am without a true diagnostic to speculate accurately, so this could be higher or lower.

Why an M.B.A.?
I am actually looking for a J.D./M.B.A. dual-degree program that would benefit me in regards to both the legal and business worlds. I am currently unsure which route I will follow, but would not mind working in Big Law for a few years after graduate school, before going on to work in the corporate world. But, then again, if I were to excel in one area over another and receive a good enough offer, I might find my way. There is also the chance that I would start my own firm, which would benefit significantly from the dual-degree.
Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, Columbia, UT-Austin, UCLA, Boston College, USC, U. of Chicago, Ohio State, U. of Washington - I haven't narrowed it down much. This list includes a few reach schools, but most of these take into account both Law and Business schools at the respective campuses.
Thanks for your help in advance!
