Pursuing an LLM / Berkeley LLM in IP
« on: December 09, 2011, 02:09:22 PM »
Hello all,

   I wanted to gauge my chances at getting into Berkeley for an IP LLM.  I currently have a 3.43 GPA at a #50-60 law school, moot court member (First place at a competition), several IP internships on my resume, good grades in IP classes.

   Any advice for getting in?

Thank you.

On a related note, do you even recommend the transfer?  I could always stay at UM and do as well as possible and try to get into Berkeley's IP LLM program or any of the other schools IP LLM programs.  Not the optimum route, but still an option.  Thanks again.

I know the rankings are a joke...but I also know that in many ways they do matter. UH's IP program (6) is ranked above Santa Claras (8).  UH is 56 in the overall rankings.  However, I know that the Bay area is known for IP but it seems more technology oriented (I want to do more trademark and less patent law since I do not have a hard sciences background).  My only issue with going to California right now is job security.  I'm not on the West Coast but I have a friend from California that went to Berkeley and is having trouble finding a job.  Texas' economy seems to be booming.  So keeping that in mind, would you still recommend Santa Clara over UH?  I had looked into it but I figured that so many top law schools are in Cal (Berkeley, Stanford, UCLA, etc) that it would be almost impossible to find a job there. Thanks for all the help, I was beginning to think I wouldn't get an answer.

I was considering University of Houston since they have such a strong IP program.  The other top rated IP programs are mainly all T14 programs (Stanford, Berkeley, etc)

When I started at Miami, it was ranked no. 60.  With the LLMs now counted as unemployed for statistics, it dropped to 77.  Regardless, I want to do IP and am finding that South Florida is not such a great market for it.  I have a 3.5 for the Fall semester (Spring isn't in yet) and wondered if anyone had transfer suggestions.  Thanks.
