I am in the middle of there numbers. But still not going to be easy. They have a solid IP program. But are very very expensive.

All I can say to this is if I had sumitted ALL my apps that early and just went complete on 11/1 I would be a raging alcoholic by now

Wow! That's quite a gap. Did you apply EA or RD? I applied EA on 9/2 and went complete on 9/15

Wow thats fast! As far as EA I didn't think you had to apply to it... As long as they get your app complete by Nov. 30 then you are automatically considered... Correct me if I'm wrong.

You had to select the EA app if you applied electronically through LSAC.

I applied EA, but I took the October LSAT, so I knew I would be waiting. Pretty happy with my app though.

That's what I did. Hopefully I hear from them soon. If I get in, I'll be able to save money by living with my parents.

So they have this under IP at Santa Clara:

HTLC, Corporate Specialization
Intellectual Property (3 units)
Venture Capital (3 units) or Legal Issues of Start-up Businesses (3 units)
Securities Regulation (3 units)
6 elective units of HTLC-designated courses

This seems super interesting to me. Is it like the corporate side of IP?

Seems perfect for someone with out a sci background.

It certainly does and its funny because I was just researching IP Law at SCU and was wondering I know for patents you need a sci or engineering background but for copyright and trademark you don't right? So if you don't have that background will they still let you go in for trademark or something?

You need science background to take the patent bar. There is like music and entertainment, copy right etc. you dont.

Hey all,

Well, I just applied early action to Santa Clara law. It's by far my first choice as it's local and I want to practice patent law (SCU has a good IP program). I am graduating from UC Santa Cruz with a Computer Science: Computer game design major and a minor in Astrophysics. I have a GPA of 3.39. I just heard back from LSAC a week ago and got a 158 on the October 2010 LSAT. I've worked 16hr/week through most of undergrad and interned at NASA. I submitted what I think is a strong personal statement, 3 strong letters of recommendation, and 1 evaluation. I'm of hispanic and Caucasian descent (ticked both boxes). My dad went to Santa Clara as well so I was able to put that on the app. Anyway, just wondering if any past admits to Santa Clara or anyone else who cares to weigh in has any idea what my chances for admission are. I don't think I can raise my LSAT much as I studied my ass off for October and 158 matched my high score in pre-testing (damn you logic games!). So, what's everyone think... yes or no? Anyone have similar stats?

About to send in my application in about two seconds. I'm pretty stoked about the Special Admissions Review as it gives me a chance to highlight some of my softs to give a little extra push.
