Kinda random, but any former patent agents or patent examiners (either on here or that people know of) going through this fair? Wondering how that work experience helps if at all.

Out of curiosity, what did you tell your summer employers about going. It was on a Thursday or Friday, no?

Abbreviation is supposed to save time. This does not save time.

lol

I'm assuming the abbreviations are as follows:
cb - 'call back'
w - 'with'
ke - 'kirkland and ellis'
jd - 'jones day'
cooley - 'cooley godward & kronish'

Ok guys. Y'all seriously need to chill. If people are going to post their results, they will post them. No need to keep asking.

Sorry about the abbreviations, was using a phone, yeah the callbacks were with jones day, kirkland, cooley, and baker botts; don't want to mention locations, but they're all in major IP markets.

Dinged from Skadden, Paul Weiss, and Crowell

So far, 4 yes, 3 no is my Loyola deal, the remaining are (K&L, Pillsbury, Winston, Fish, Foley, Alston, Proskauer, Sidley, Goodwin)

tier 1 law school, technical background.

edit: response to below post: pure litigation

I think everyone should start including whether they are litigation or prosecution bound (or at least which one the firm thinks they are headed for) when they report their results. I would be interested in comparing peoples results from the two camps. I have a feeling some firms are going to need prosecutors more (or vis versa), and it would be interesting to try and figure out which ones from this (albeit limited in sample size).
