Been thinking about a JD/MBA coming from a banking (and hopefully PE background). I know that the law degree isn't instrumentally the best career choice and I'll be foregoing two years of income for doing it, but honestly I'm just too damn curious about the intellectual experience to pass it up. I come from a fairly liberal arts background pre-my very business-oriented top target (not hard to guess), have always found the analysis of law and history/literature to be a great "style" of thinking, and I took law or law-adjacent classes at least once a year through U-grad.
Problem is, at top-tier JD/MBA programs (H/Y/S), the GPAs are usually sky-high with humanities majors. I'd likely be applying a ~3.7, EB banking background, and (hopefully) MF/upper MM PE job, would there be any "give" to the law school GPA evaluation? If not, I'd likely be looking at a prayer of getting in and lowest-quartile stats (even with a perfect/near-perfect LSAT).
