Should I drop out of law school or finish my last year, or get a MBA? I need help fixing my life.

I am 24 years old and am just having a tough time with life in general. One of my most specific problems is that I am currently in my second year of law school (the school is ranked right around 100) and I hate it. I don't know whether it would be best to finish my law degree, apply to a MBA program, or just drop out completely and get whatever job I can find and start working my way up. [more inside]

Which MBA program is better, Liberty or Walden?

I am contemplating whether or not to enroll in an online MBA program. I am on the last term of my undergraduate degree and will be done on October 15th:) I am doing Liberty University's online program and will have a BS of Multi-Disciplinary Studies with cognates in Business and Psychology. I am weighing out whether to stick with Liberty and pursue their MBA program or to enroll in Walden for theirs. It seems impossible to find unbiased ratings online to adequately compare the two. Is there a significant prestige difference between them? Would earnings potential be higher at one over the other? Am I making a mistake all together in going for it online? I have a full-time job and soon to be two children that take up a lot of my time, so the online format is very helpful for my lifestyle. Thank you very much for taking the time to read my post. I appreciate any relevant insights or experiences that you could share. Have a great day!

Need help finding an MBA program with an IS / IT specialty.

I'm looking at MBA programs in Chicago, Cleveland, and St. Louis. I'm interested in specializing in Information Systems, but I've noticed that many schools in the top tier don't offer an IS specialty. My main question is: what top-25 schools in those metro areas offer an MBA with a specialization in IS (or a similar specialization)? Are there programs outside of those metro areas I should really consider? And what pretty-good programs exist in those places? But I'm also wondering why IS is not an offering at more top schools. There are a few concentrations that most schools offer such as finance and marketing. Is Information Systems not as prestigious as other concentrations? Is it considered less of a strategic area?

Sacrifice, Future, Family, Bankruptcy...

I'm currently working on my MBA at a relatively prestigious business school and am coming to understand that my parents are in a grave financial situation that may lead to them having to file for bankruptcy. My father's been unable to get steady work for the last year or two and my mother's income isn't large enough to maintain the household and service their debt. In all likelihood they'll lose their house in two to three months unless something dramatic happens. I'm considering dropping out of school and returning home to help them weather the storm but I don't know a) if they'd be able to stomach it, b) whether I'd be able to find a job quickly enough to fend off the fallout, c) if I'm really serious about doing this, d) if this is the right thing for me to do, and e) what it'll mean for my future.

What kind of jobs are uniquely tailored to a JD/MBA?

What kind of jobs are open only to a JD/MBA, or would be likely to express a strong preference to someone with both degrees? I have a general idea, but I'm looking for specific examples so I could justify (or, if there are few/no examples, forget about) the time & expense of a dual degree (vs. only a JD).

Where to go from Dubai?

Where to go from Dubai? I'm going to Dubai in April with my Executive MBA program. I've read great posts on Dubai, but what would be the best place to go after for 4-5 days without breaking the bank. Sri Lanka? Cairo? I love history and sightseeing and likely won't get another opportunity for extensive global travel for some time. Basically, what's the best use of our time in this part of the world? Flying directly from Houston, so connecting cities are out.
