Anyone out there gone for a JD/MBA over an MBA? Did you get higher salary upon returning (over MBA candidates) or does the firm see it as a useless and trivial pursuit?

Don't do consulting if you get a JD MBA. Practice first and then come into consulting.

Most of the ppl in my MBA that did both ended up just going business after graduating anyway.

I pretty much don't even bother to look at resumes if it becomes apparent that the person is just getting a degree for the same of degrees. There is no point in having a JD to get into consulting. you're just gonna set yourself up to be behind others your age and it doesn't improve your chances of a consulting job

Agreed, no point getting a JD unless you're planning to practice law. It's not leveraged in consulting, same salaries as the MBA grads, and law school is much more work than bschool.

@ey1: why?

A1 where did you go?

If you like school that much just get your MD

Any JDs, MBA or Joint, that didn't then study for and pass the bar don't hold much weight in many places and also if you don't go into the practice don't help much in consulting unless you are in house counsel support

Yea, I met a guy who said he majored in pre law, wtf, asked how long he's been practicing and he said he didn't go to law school, fucking moron

PWC1, I went to Emory. Thankfully, I had some help and the GI bill, so I don't have much debt.

For the sake of degrees *

Advice for Deloitte USI consultant ……If short term goal is to work for a few years in the US and then move back to India, what is the recommended approach-
1. MS/MBA in US and look for a Human Capital role (will need to spend $$ but will ensure higher designation and more options)
2. Stay at USI and wait for a project opportunity in US (lower probability of selection for H1B, move with same designation)
