Patent Pros Employment for CS no experience

Postby McCosh » Fri Jul 22, 2016 3:46 pm

Hi all,

I'll be graduating this year with a degree in CS from a top 75 university, but not known in cs at all. We have no engineering. I've taken networks and electronics, but my degree is only in cs not ee. I also have no cs experience (since I'm just graduating), and I know I can go do the patent bar under category B.
I have a 3.95 GPA and a 176 lsat, so I know my chances for a t3 or t6 are good.
So here's my question, assuming a t6, would anyone employ me in patent pros with just the cs without experience and no ee? Would getting a master's in cs change that if the answer is no? Would taking a year off to get experience help me?
Thanks for the help.

I'd go straight in. I'm doing an IP internship right now and am wishing I would have taken even one comp sci class in college. If you are patent bar eligible and know enough in your field, you'll be totally fine!
