BC ($15K/yr) vs GW ?

Postby Kate514 » Wed Apr 10, 2013 8:27 pm

I'm a chemical engineer (3.8 UG GPA and 3.8 MS GPA) from the NYC area trying to decide between an offer from BC with $15K/yr and GW with no scholarship offer. I'm looking to pursue a career in IP and while I enjoy living in NYC I do not feel a particular need to commit to the area long term and am open to relocating (I would rank #1 NYC, #2 DC, #3 Boston).

I know GW has a great reputation for IP. However, I don't know if GW's IP and overall reputations are strong enough that it is worth paying full tuition over a scholarship at BC. Combined with the difference in tuition between the two schools, I am looking at a savings upwards of $20K per year to attend BC over GW. My goal after school is to get into a Big Law firm or a bigger IP boutique (Kenyon and Kenyon; Fitzpatrick, Cella; etc.). I am somewhat more interested in patent prosecution (already passed the patent bar) but would like to get some IP litigation experience as well.

Can anyone comment on my situation and offer advice on what I am better off going with? Thanks for any input. :)

this should be moved to "Choosing a Law School"
