Transferring / transferring: LSAC recommendation forms
« on: June 06, 2009, 12:46:31 AM »
I was just wondering how I am supposed to submit the new recommendation forms to LSAC?
I had two previous recommendation forms from my previous application; what do I do with the old forms? I no longer need these forms.

Thank you very much

Thank you very much. I keep my fingers crossed. At least one interview would be nice.

Yes, this is what I am asking. Sorry I didn't make myself clearly the first time.
For example, I know that for one school in the 50's, they require at least a top 5-10% performance; whereas a school in the 30's requires a top third performance. At least from what I read int he FAQ section for transferring students.

Hi everyone -
First of all, I find this board really helpful. Thanks for your help everyone. I have one concern. I am interested in transferring. Why is it that for some lower ranked schools, tranfer applicants need to be ranked in the top 5-10% of their class; whereas for some of the higher ranked schools, those schools seem to be generally more lenient about the class ranking, ie top 1/3 of the class?  Can someone explain to me?

Transferring / How important are professors' recommendations?

Hi people

I would like to know: if the grades appear to be borderline acceptance. Does the school give weight to recommendations? What about your other achievements on the resume, such as advanced degree and publications? Thanks.

Transferring / transferring issue
« on: June 01, 2009, 03:21:36 PM »
Hi people

I would like to know something. I asked my school to prepare a dean's letter of standing and a transcript. The person in charge of handling the matter asked me why I want to transfer and would like to discuss with me. That person is not my recommender and I don't understand why she feels the need to talk to me about transferring. Has this ever occurred to anyone? It feels strange. What advice can you give me? I look forward to your reply.

Denver / can someone tell me about Denver law?
« on: May 29, 2009, 10:24:08 PM »
I'm interested in Denver law as a potential school to transfer to. However, I'm unaware of the job market out there in Colorado. What is market like? Is there a biotech industry? Thanks. I don't personally think Denver Law is a good school for IP? Because a student from Denver Law transferred to my school last year, and now I want to transfer to Denver Law? I think Denver is more of a tax law school, is that correct?

Job Search / life science patent law
« on: May 29, 2009, 10:19:22 PM »
for a person with a Master's degree in biochemistry/molecular biology, what is the job market like? Whenever I read about job market for patent lawyers, there is only information for engineers, but what about the biochemists? the life scientists? Does anyone know anything about the market for this group of people, myself included?

Thanks, I would like to hear from you.
