Interesting...my major (Environmental Engineering) isn't a qualifying major, but I think I might qualify by having passed the FE. They don't say that you have to have passed the FE in a certain discipline, so presumably my EnvE FE would work.

Just because you can take it doesn't mean you should. Who wants to hire a math or environmental engineering major to do their patents for them?
http://www.fr.com <--- Fish and Richardson page. Scroll through their people. See how many have your major. Divide by overall # of people. That is how valuable your major is to them on a scale of 0 to 1.

Wow, snotty. Did I say I wanted to do IP? I'm getting out of engineering for a reason, and I don't want to continue it after law school. I'm just saying I could.
I'd have to look at my transcript to count the credits and make sure, but I think I also would qualify under option B.iv. (EnvE includes an buttload of chemistry which I turned into a minor, physics for engineers, and a bunch of civil and chemical engineering classes.)
What is it with EEs thinking they're god's gift and no one else counts?
