Interested to hear which you guys, out there with a number of years (and wisdom) under your belt, feel is a better investment. Cheers,

They're incredibly different degrees. What's your personal inclination? If you're just doing because you think "gee, this is what smart people do", you're setting yourself up for disappointment.

Do you have any serious work experience? If no, forget the MBA.

Do you want to enter an incredibly saturated job market? If no, forget the JD.

Some schools offer a dual degree, if you can't make up your mind.

Then you're just a lawyer who knows some business or a businessman that knows a little bit about the law.

I am assuming you are talking about straight-from-undergrad, right? No professional experience...

Ok, I'll give a serious response then - this is a stupid question and there is no logical way to respond to it other than: Well, which path appeals more to the thread starter?

Would you prefer to manage a business or be a lawyer?
