Transfer between PT schools in DC

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Nov 21, 2014 2:37 pm

Currently a 1L in evening program at GW/GMU/American with patent-bar eligible background. Transitioned to a Patent Agent job at BigLaw firm couple weeks ago and wondering what type of grades I need to get into GULC PT.

I understand it's easier to get in as a PT transfer since a lot of FT 1L's don't transfer into GULC's PT program, so what type of grades would I need to be competitive? Would having a firm job matter since I will essentially have an offer from this firm after law school?

If you're at GW just stay. IP Secure is real here.

American/GMU different story. What are you paying right now?

full tuition, but expecting the firm will reimburse tuition. Not worried about securing a position since most the Agents at our firm end up getting Associate offers. Interested in Patent Lit more than Patent Pros so want to keep my options at the best school possible.

I was PT at AU, and transferred to GULC with 6 other PTs. I am now in the FT section. PM me if you need specific info on AU.
