80%. It's a good school, the median is a 3.25.
Also helps you out for job searches because you can be at the median and still have a "good" gpa.
Wow. But don't employers just say to themselves, "Sure, he has a 3.2, but the median is 3.25, so he's in the bottom half of the class"?
I'm really torn now, because I'm in at Tulane as well, and I'd love to live in Nawlins for a while. However, I'm one of those "IP people", and the proximity to DC was the reason I applied to W&L. And now they've sent me a nice merit scholarship offer, too.
How's the IP program at W&L? Is it possible to take a semester at GWU for their 2L/3L IP classes? Any knowledge about placement at IP firms, particularly for patent prosecution? (I'm expecting to pass the patent bar Real Soon Now, assuming the USPTO allows me to take the exam; I'm a cat-B, so there's always some uncertainty.) How about summer jobs at DC/NoVA IP firms?
Also, having seen the comments about local stores only in Lexington, is there a Wal-Mart (a "Super Wal-Mart", really, the kind with a full grocery store in it) anywhere near town? I know a lot of people love to hate WMT, but I've lived in areas with and without one, and the grocery prices are outrageous in the areas without. (A couple of years ago, I heard of a study that found WMT forces grocery prices to be lowered by 14% in their markets.)
