I agree with this. But the problem is that you act like the latter is significant. There are plenty of people who litigate patent-related cases without having taken the patent bar, and whose practice does not involve patent prosecution. In fact, I know many patent lawyers who try to avoid patent prosecution altogether.


It is significant. Patent prosecution is an entire practice area onto itself, and many people make a very good living doing it.

Our point of contention may be your use of the term "patent attorney." Every IP attorney I know uses that term to refer specifically to patent prosecutors. IP litigators are IP litigators.

Both Alston & Bird and McKenna Long & Aldridge in Atlanta have shot me e-mails asking me if I've finalized my plans for this summer yet and if I'd like to come in for an interview.

T25.

We just got an e-mail from Career Services saying that they have a lead with a biglaw firm in Chicago. They don't ever name in the firm in the e-mail (probably to prevent people from posting on places like here), but there are still a few firms looking.

It's a double-edged sword. There are definitely more jobs available ITE. Your UGPA would also be at least .5 lower and you'd be at a significantly worse law school. I went to a T15 engineering school for undergrad. We had a forced curve... With a B- (2.67) median.

Yeah, one of the brightest kids I knew in undergrad was an engineering major. Worked his ass off, and still failed the same core class twice due to the forced curve (which was curved to like a C). The better the engineering school, the more the curve looks like Cooley, I think.

On the plus side, you wouldn't have needed a law degree to get a job in the first place.

Yeah, but there would have been an opportunity for actual employment before coming to school, too.

Yeah, I am in this boat. I did reasonably well at one of the best engineering schools in the country but that meant a crap GPA compared to people majoring in typical pre-law majors. And the fact that it was engineering was definitely NOT some kind of compensating X factor in the admissions process.

Wouldn't it be awesome if US News would replace undergrad GPA with the Stanford-Binet as a ranking metric?

Symplicity, at a T10. Interestingly, I don't think they've ever taken SAs at their NYC office before.
