Don’t delay law school. Just go. Also, I once had a professor tell me there is no job out there where having a JD & MBA is an advantage.

I agree w this. Esp if you have some experience, an MBA won’t make or break anything

Based on this post, you actually don’t want to go to law school, but you just don’t know it yet.

There is no set formula — apply when you feel ready. I do think getting 2-3 years of work experience (either at KPMG or somewhere else) will only help your application and will make you more mature and capable going into law school

I had a friend do 3 years in consulting and got a full ride bc of her experience. She also got more interviews and offers for summer internships and jobs because she was at Deloitte for those 3 years

She also recently told me that she just had a feeling that it was time, so there was no formula

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications
