Transferring / Re: Boalt Email
« on: July 04, 2008, 02:21:18 PM »
I applied for transfer as well, but I did not receive this email.  As of right now, I have not heard anything back from Boalt - - which I assume is a bad thing. 

PS: I love the Samuelson Clinic, it is the main reason I want to transfer to Boalt!  I am jealous ;)

It is at the end of the general requirements bulletin.

Of the people that applied to take the test, how many have heard back from the PTO and how long did it take? I was just curious if it really takes the three to six weeks that they say it does.

On a side note, I have been talking with some patent attorneys and they suggested reading the Patently-O Blog. Here is the link:

It is weird reading about current cases that deal with the rules in the MPEP, and I always think to myself that I might have learned something from this ridiculously boring material.

I snagged a PLI set finally with the DVDs for 1350 on ebay.  The MPEP is laughably huge... like bigger than my phone book for a city of almost a million.

Gonna reformat my computer this weekend and then get all this stuff installed and set up to rock out on this.

I know what you mean, the MPEP fills my whole bookshelf! I just finished up the PRG course, and I am on the practice problems. Good luck studying!

Disturbing:

Despite it being a false threat, the fact that someone would find this funny amazes me.

Thought I'd jump on the Class of 2010 train, and is anyone else really excited?  Whaddya guys think - live in the Tower or on the Mission Bay campus? 

I know this wasn't one of your choices, but I am thinking of living in the East Bay and commuting via BART. It is cheaper, and I love BART.

If I had to live in the City, I would do the Mission Bay campus or find an apartment in Richmond. When I saw the towers, I wasn't super impressed. But you can't beat the convenience factor.

Great review HappyCritter, thanks!

Hey where in the Eastbay are you? I currently live in Berkeley and go to Cal. Do you think the commute will be bad? and won't Bart cost like 200 a month?

I am super excited to use BART, it might be more expensive in relation to gas, but if you commute via car then you have to find parking and you can't get anything accomplished in traffic. At least with BART, you might be able to do hw.

I haven't found a place yet. I was thinking Lafayette, it seems reasonably priced and hopefully I can walk to BART. Are you planning on staying in Berkeley?

We use secureexam so this isn't an issue at our school. Question to those using parallels - does the program partition off a section of your hard drive for running windows? Do you get to set it size? Can you recover it if you decide to remove the program?

Oingo

The new parallels uses the boot camp partition, prior to that it created its own image on the hd. You still have this option, but using the boot camp partition is superb.

That being said, parallels also has a cool viewing mode called "coherence" it puts your windows programs on the dock and integrates them into your workspace in OSX. It is super sick. I now use parallels more than actually booting into XP.

Dude, does that literally mean that I can run Onenote 2007 as if it were a literal Mac app?

wow.

Oingo

Pretty much. You still have to boot into xp, but it doesn't take too long. I put my XP desktop to sleep when I am not using it so that way I can just resume instead of a full reboot.
