Since there are such few students that get accepted into both programs, do you think there is less support for you in terms of career guidance when you are ready to enter the job market?

Can non-law students apply for the dual degree? Also, I heard that the LSAT is highly challenging, so how did you tackle that obstacle?

Given my interest in international law, diplomacy, and global security (especially peacebuilding, cyber warfare, terrorism, humanitarian assistance), do you have any recommendations to offer, in terms of courses and degree programmes?

Attending the informational sessions from Georgetown Law, they emphasized being a law school student first to even find out if the dual degree is necessary towards your career goals. What edge do you think it'll give you? Zoe sort of touched on this earlier.

Career-related questions:1) Do you happen to know of any pathways into the UN, besides the Young Professionals Programme (YPP), the Junior Professional Officer (JPO) Programme, as well as their internship programmes?2) Furthermore, would you recommend that students build up experiences by working for NGOs or thinktanks first before entering the UN?3) As someone who is interested in practising international law, but does not have a law degree, I was wondering: Do you know of any alternative ways to practising international law?4) Do you think it is possible to work as a social entrepreneur, an international lawyer and a diplomat at the same time?

A significant portion of the SSP students appear to work full-time. Can you do the dual MA/JD part-time if you work full-time?
