Saint Louis U / Re: SLU, anyone?
« on: February 15, 2006, 11:13:07 PM »
I will be attending SLU in the Fall after completing the Summer Program. I heard that the campus is very nice and the cost of living is cheap there. Hope that help.

Thank you for your very detailed information. They are very helpful! This is what I have in my head as right now for the next 10 years.

Option 1: If I decide to work in USPTO first
I will probably spend the first 5 years there, then go to law school (if I still want more school). After that I will want to work in a private firm, can be either small or larger firms (at least 120k in salary is my goal). After gaining enough experience, I might start own firm.

Option 2: If I decide to go to law school first
Will want to work at a firm that pays at least 100k, not sure if thats possible. Then eventually start my own firm after gaining enough experience.

The major difference between the 2 options is the experience at USPTO. I heard that a lot firms like to hire former patent examiners, that's why I am thinking about working there first. But I also don't feel like reappling law schools again in the future because it's so much pain. If I don't have any experience at USPTO, would that put me in a disadvantage when I'm looking for a job in this area in the future?

I have a master degree in EE. From what I know, I can start as GS9 at USPTO. I have a few friends who work there and like there, tho sometimes they are stressed. I think sometime between GS11-GS13, you can take the patent bar exam. I think it's required before GS13/14. You are right on the law school rehembursment. The newest information I heard is that you have to serve one month in USPTO for each credit paid by them, which will take a long time to finish. I still have sometime to think before I make the decision. Either decision won't go wrong, but which one is better? Thank you.

Thank you for your information. I will be focusing on patent law if I decide to go to law school. Currently, I got offers from USPTO and Seton Hall (part-time), and I am deciding if I should work at USPTO or go to law school first. Working at USPTO will provide me very valuable experience, but I might have to retake LSAT and go through the whole application process again which is very annoying. If I decide to go to law school, I probably won't work at USPTO after graduation because the difference in salary. Any thoughts? Thank you.

If you are a part-time in law school, does that show on your diploma? Also, is it harder to find a job after you graduate as a part-time comparing to a full-time student? Thank you.

Law School Applications / Re: Obtaining a fee waiver
« on: August 18, 2006, 06:13:55 PM »
I see what you mean. They didn't have the fee waiver service on their web site last year I think (at least I didn't see it last year). I will apply from the web site. Thanks!

Law School Applications / Obtaining a fee waiver
« on: August 18, 2006, 02:46:14 PM »
Is it still possible to obtain a fee waiver from law schools after I registered and paid for LSAC? I didn't know its existence after I paid for it, but I believe my financial status qualifies such waiver. Any chances obtaining a fee waiver from the following schools if I send them an email describing my circumstances? Thanks.

1. University of Denver
2. Seattle University
3. Indian University - Indianaplis
4. Seton Hall
5. Loyola (CA)
6. University of Missouri - Columbia
7. Santa Clara
8. Temple
9. U. of Oklahama
10. U. of Tennessee
