Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Patent law related to science
« on: December 22, 2002, 07:46:12 AM »

I majored in the same thing; their is no patent law in science program per say; however, some schools offers course in Intellectual property and genetics, bioethics, health law and so forth. To my knowledge the following schools offer good patent law programs with science: Boston, Cardozo, Minnesota, Kent.

Also, in order to be a patent lawyer (litigator) you need to pass a patent agent exam. The failure rate is very high and generally a patent agent has a PHD or ath the very least a Master's in the related science field. Please do you research their are alot of oppurtunities for a scientist in law. Anyhow, do some reading in the legal field before you committ yourself to a career as a patent lawyer. The process is not that easy and the time commitment is hell.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 160/ 3.6 What are my chances?

I need some help for the Feb LSAT. If you don't mind could you please detial your study plan for the LSAT. My score seems to be stuck at the same score band. For instance, what did you do day to day. Did you take alot of practice tests, did you work on only game sections for one week.

Hey guys,

I need some help. I'm trying to improve my score before I write the Feb LSAT. I'm seem to be stuck at the same score. Anyways, if you guys or girls, don't mind can some of you list your day to day study plans. For instance, would you work on game for a week, and then arguments then next. I usually work on little bit of each during a day but it's not helping. How many timed drills would you do per day? Some of ya'll who score a 160 let me know.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: MD and JD

Hey Roy, I am planning on doing the same thing: MD/JD; however, I want to attend Law school before Med school. To answer your question, upon completing your MD you will have to write the LSAT and you will be applying as any other student applying to law school. However, a few U.S. schools have programs that allow you to earn a JD/MD at the same time. Minnesota, Seton Hall, and Case Western offer a JD/MD program. To be accepted you must be admitted from both the school of law and the school of medicine. In other words, you have to satisfy both schools entrance requirments: MCAT, and LSAT. I don't know how long you plan on being a student but you should investigate the MD/JD joint degree program as it may save you some time. Good luck with your studies.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: USF w/$$$ v. Santa Clara

I agreed with Darkboys's earlier response. Santa Clara may have the edge because of it's nationaly reputed IP program and it helps that Silicon Valley is around the corner. Finally, West no offense but ease up on the negativity.

Choosing the Right Law School / Need Info: Franklin Pierce

Ez, Peeps

It's been a while since i've posted. I got an offer of admission for Franklin Pierce. Does anyone know anything about the school, faculty, speciality programs, and so forth? Any info would be great. I am aware that they have an IP program ranked 7th in the nation.

I received admission to Franklin Pierece Law school. Is anyone else on this board attending FP. I'm a bit weary of the school because it's a small private school that only teaches law. FP, has an excellent reputation for Patent and IP law. It ranked in the top 3 in the U.S. news 2002 report for IP schools. Furthermore for the past ten years it has ranked no less than the top 6 for IP law; infact, in 1996, 1997, 1998 it was ranked number one for IP law.

Also, is it important to attend a large University that teaches law, along with various other acadmeic disciplines (ie medicine, undergrad programs and so forth) compared to a school that teaches only law such as FP.  

Any help would be grateful because I've given up med school to pursue a career in patents. I hope I made the right choice. My numbers were 148, 3.63 Honours Science Major. My last two year at school were 3.96. Thanks.

Thanks Eldorado.

Funny, I always wanted to be a mental health counsellor. How's the job? Are you more of a bio psych guy or more into the social theory. In fact, I'm a fan of neuroscience it's a fascinating subject. Thanks for help with residence luckily my roomate from undergrad lives in Windsor. Also, my family resides in Windsor.

Just out of curiosity why not continue your education in pysch (ie clinical psych). I thought about it before but the thought of being around ill people all day may be emotionally exhausting. Anyhow, good luck to you.

Thanks Andrew.

Eldorado, I want to attend Windsor because I live in Canada. I was born in Toronto. Thus, windsor is very close to Toronto so I would get to stay close to my friends and family. Secondly, although I'd probably make more $$$ in the U.S., i'd accumlate much more debt. The cost of a U.S. legal education is approximatley 40, 000 (USD) or $60, 000 CAD a year. One year at Windsor costs 10, 000 CAD (Tuition) per year. Thus three years at windsor is much cheaper than 3 years in the U.S.

As for your request, my numbers weren't stellar but good enough. Also, I had a lot of work experince in undergrad and a very good personal statement. Anyhow, I had 3.58 gpa in science and my LSAT score was 148. Good luck to you! Btw, what are ur numbers my girlfriend is also on the waiting list at Windsor?

I just wanted to share some great news: I am accteped to the 1L law program at Windsor Law school. Infact, I'm elated I thought I had no chance of admission to a Canadian law school; however, I guess the hard work paid off. 1700 people applied and the accepted 150 students. I'm not sure if i'm gonna attend as I may defer admission for a year in order to write the MCAT; however, I'm glad that a CAD school accpeted me. No offence to any Americans I  ;Dalways wanted to stay close to home. I already defered my admission to Franklin Pierce and I am wait listes at Case Western and Ottawa but I think Windsor is the best fit for me....

To anyone who doubts themselves work hard and push your self. Nothing is easy in life and we must stuggle for what we want the trick is to enjoy life along the way.
