    Western v. Dalhousie JD/MBA

    A lot of good points to consider, thanks for the response.

    Definitely not dead set on the MBA. I have just heard it can set you apart from other comparable candidates in certain circumstances when trying to land a job. The extra year/cost are not too much of a concern if the MBA really does provide an advantage. My main concern is the extra distance possibly cancelling this potential advantage out.

    Western v. Dalhousie JD/MBA

    No I didn't, that's another reason why an MBA may be useful. I am fully planning on pursuing a legal career at this point but I'm assuming an MBA would open doors as a fallback.
  5. I have been trying to make this call for a few weeks now so any suggestions would be appreciated. I have been accepted to both the Western JD and Dalhousie JD/MBA combined program. I would likely not be able to pursue the JD/MBA at Western because Ivey has a minimum work experience requirement that I don't satisfy unfortunately. After graduation I am fully committed to working in Toronto, likely in a business law position. I have done a lot of research on both schools and from what I can tell Western seems to place better on Bay St. by a slight margin. However, I have also heard that having a JD/MBA can make you stand out in the recruitment process. I know I would be happy attending either school, I am just looking to pursue the option that provides the best opportunity for recruitment in Toronto in business law. Thanks in advance for any input.

    Chances post! [3.0, 3.6, 165]

    Yeah I thought so too so I was a little disappointed. They seem to be fairly strict with the 3.3 cumulative cutoff unfortunately.

    I can speak about a few of those schools you mentioned. My stats are very similar to yours, I only have slightly higher L2 and LSAT (3.8, 171). I applied this cycle and was accepted to Dalhousie and Western (even before my final marks were in when my CGPA and L2 were lower) but rejected from Queens (from what I can tell they only accept sub 3.3 CGPAs in very rare circumstances). My LSAT really had to have been the difference maker at UWO and Dal so if you think you have the ability to get it up a few points I'd rewrite. Even as is, I'd say you definitely have a shot at both UWO and Dal. Good luck.

    Accepted March 5 via email CGPA: 2.84/4.0 L2/B2: 3.7-3.8 (will be after this term, surprised they didn't wait for my final marks) LSAT: 171 Non-atlantic resident Hopefully this gives splitters hope and proves they really do care about L2

    cGPA: 2.8 (Horrible first two years, currently in 4th year and it will definitely be up to 3.0 or higher by the end of year if that counts for anything, L2 will be around 3.7-3.8) LSAT: 171 Good PS, ECs and LORs in my opinion Applied to Western Queens Osgoode Windsor Thanks
