George Washington University ???

Postby ylca966 » Thu May 12, 2011 10:36 am

I am considering attending GWU to study IP with no scholarship. Considering the hefty price tag, the strong IP program at GWU,and the employment market, is GWU a good option ?

It's a terrible idea unless you already have a prestigious engineering or biomedical Ph.D. Even then it only gets upgraded to "pretty wack idea."

Not true. If OP has a Ph.D in a hard science, GW at sticker is not a bad idea. Students with IP credentials have no problem getting biglaw from GW.

no one is going to say anything is worth sticker unless it's HYS because they know they're amazing and deserve nothing less. I am so awesome. I love myself.

The GWU class size is about 500. Does anyone know roughly the average percentage of GWU students who is on the IP track in recent years and if IP students from GWU get a reasonably good chance of finding biglaw employments in the current environment ?

I do have a strong engineering background and want to pursuit a career in IP. Obviously, I would like to have a biglaw opportunity after GWU so I would be able to pay off the loan.
