PTO Test

Postby bucky0486 » Tue Jan 18, 2011 9:57 pm

I'm not sure if the "Law School Admissions Forum" is the right place for this topic, but I couldn't find another suitable forum.

Anyway, I recently learned that in order to become a patent attorney, one must pass the Patent Bar exam in addition to the regular Bar exam. I also learned that anyone can take the test (and by anyone I mean those with scientific backgrounds).

Has anyone here taken the test BEFORE law school? Any advice as to how to go about pursuing this before school?

...any comments at all?

1) Buy the PLI patent bar review course from ebay for ~500 bucks.

2) Do course.

3) Pass exam.

4) Resell course on ebay for ~500 bucks.

5) Profit.
