On Cal, Stanford, and Yale!
lol - you caught me! Yeah, I got tired of it, I mean I loved it while I was there- awesome school, but when the admissions offices tell you to just put in an application and to not worry it takes something away from it. Thanks for the advice and congrats and your awesome acceptances!
for the kind words.I think I was just tremendously nervous the first time and bombed the games, something I did not do twice luckily!
BTW, I'm so jealous of your Yale and Stanford acceptances. :). You have my exact numbers (without the multiple scores obviously) so I hope I can match your success!
Congrats on your amazing acceptances. I didn't ED @ Columbia b/c, while it seems to be my first choice, I would like to visit there, NYU, and possibly other schools as well before making a decision.
Are you thinking about taking the Hamilton or going with H/Y/S?
I would love to know your thoughts . I'm really conflicted!
We're the only two people on LSN so far accepted to Yale but not Harvard. Did you go complete late or something?
Absolutely amazing. Sincere congrats from a lesser being. Please withdraw from the schools that you really are not considering (Berkeley).
On Harvard and Chicago!
Hey, Congrats on your acceptances! Looks like you have some tough choices coming up =)
The JD/MBA at Harvard for me has always been a dream program, I'm actually still in shock I got into the business school even though I'm still in undergrad. I've spoken with a lot of JD/MBAs (in the program, recent alums and older alums) and have picked up some information.
1st is that most JD/MBAs start off as 1Ls who realize that they never want to go into law, and use the business school as their way out. Subsequently, some 90% of Harvard JD/MBAs end up in business careers (which are more lucrative and fun that law firms). There are a minority of JD/MBAs (like me) who know that they want to go into law but want the MBA for long-term options and the fun of an MBA education.
2nd is that the difference between MBA programs is very substantial compared to law program. Each business school has a certain flavor - a specialty that helps define the student body. At Wharton it's finance. At Stanford it's tech. At Harvard it's management/leadership. My own passion is wanting to make an impact in the long run, so the Harvard MBA makes perfect sense to me.
3rd is that outside of the top few programs (Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, Chicago) the JD/MBA is not worth getting. If you end up at Yale, there's no point in doing it, but the JD/MBAs at Stanford and Harvard, while VERY different from each other, are both really amazing programs that are very much worth doing.
In the end, it was a personal decision for me. I really want to study at HBS - the classroom culture is VERY fun and engaging and the networking I'll be able to do will be priceless in the long run. Plus it's only one more year =) Hope that helped!
