I'm in a similar position. My original plan was to locate potential roommates using LLS's roommate finder service, but I haven't had much luck with it so far.

A registration deadline? I was not aware such a deadline existed now that the test is commercially available through Prometric. Am I wrong?
he was referring to the deadline for the interview program. there is no deadline for the patent bar, though usually a prometric center in a given city will only offer it once or twice a month. Once you apply to the USPTO, they will give you a 3 month deadline to take the test when your application is approved. I had to travel to Gainesville because the last time Tallahassee offered it was two weeks before the end of my deadline, and I needed the extra two weeks.
and to sit fot he patent bar, you dont actually have to be a lawyer, just have the technical background, and im pretty sure the deadline passed, but there are 1800 people going to look for work, that seems a little daunting, granted there are between 100 and 150 employers, and i suppose this includes 2l and 3ls and possibly graduates, ill be more than happy if i land say 4 interviews, but to get these interviews, everything is based off of 1st semester grades, nothing like one semester to point you out on what trail you might go down
I think there are people on LSN who say both for my date... there aren't very many PT people there, there are some PT people on 1/25 and there are some FT (or people who said they were FT) on 1/25, I think that's when I heard.
oh well, it's not a super biggie to me, either way... I'll let them help me decide what to do with my life if that ends up being where I go (I can always stick with my job PT or something for at least a year), it's all good
so all, does good news (for my purposes accept/WL) come strictly via web and bad news come snail mail? or is it mixed? does it vary from FT t PT?
CONGRATS TO ALL!
I'm just stalking the thread cause I am in th enext batch of notices.
Complete: I never got a notice (called yesterday and found out my app was in committee).
FT v. PT: You can do both. Not sure if you are able to check both on the app, but they will consider for PT if you don't get in FT (if you indicate yo'd be interested). I'm guessing it is FT if they don't specify, but call jus to be sure. Congrats again!
My app is with the committee (I called today)
She said they should be sending out decisions in about two weeks for those of us who applied in mid-late Nov.
