Yeah, Illinois engineering is top notch, think it's above Caltech in the blanket rankings nowadays. Anyhow, it has nothing to do with the Midwest - engineering expertise doesn't tend to have anything to do with geography. :roll:

I'd have thought you'd have a great shot at getting a job, consulting or otherwise. If you want to do IP law, telecommunications sounds like fantastic experience. All this fancy new gear needs to be patented after all.


So a sales engineer or a technical engineer , which would you recommend?

I really don't know enough about it to tell you anything of value. If you're doing telecom stuff, sales engineers deal more with outages and post-installation technical fixes I think. Technical engineer sounds more glamorous to the layman, and it might be closer to the design process? In the end I'd do whatever you'd enjoy more / be better at. You might want to be able to leverage a reference from these people when you apply for IP law jobs.

Aka nowhere.


At least it's not the South.


Or anwhere west that isn't on a coast.


You know what? I am not going to try and convince you you are wrong. If too many people realize how much better the southwest is than the rest of the country, it is going to get crowded. And then I won't like it as much.
