I never said I was a good engineer...why do you think I'm going to law school.  :-)

I can't seem to get my pic uploaded.

I work at a company called Zyvex in Richardson, Texas.  I also do some research at UT-Dallas Nanotech Institute.  I'm afraid I don't know Lou Brousseau.  My expertise is in in situ manipulation of carbon nanotubes.  I would love to learn more about nanoscale devices, though.  Right now, I'm getting more into bio-nano applications.

Nanotech is good fun, but requires a PhD for any high level positions.  Like many others on this board, I've been feathering my cap with scientific achievements in the hopes of getting into a decent law school.

Can I play, too?

1)University of Texas at Austin
3)167 June 14 Exam
4)GW, BU, Franklin Pierce, U of Minn, U of Washington, U of Hawaii, BC, Georgetown, Santa Clara (No particular order)
5)BSEE, MS Applied Physics (UT-Dallas)
6)?? (rank)
7)4 years in industry (nanotechnology R&D), numerous publications and presentations, international research experience, hoping this all means something.

Law School Admissions / Re: Any science majors (excluding engineers) around?

EE undergrad, but I'll have my MS in applied physics when I start law school in '05.  I've spoken to a whole crap load of IP lawyers in the Dallas area.  Patent law is good for people with science backgrounds, but we're certainly not limited to it.  I would conclude that the reason it is good for IP lawyers is that we'll have the ability to argue for or against patent claims based on knowledge of some state of the art.

I'm interested in international law as well as patent law, though.  There's got to be a way to combine them (I've even seen classes at some schools called, "International Intellectual Property"). 

Law School Admissions / International law

Curious if anyone has some experience with international law.  What are some examples of careers in int law?  I'm assuming that there would be opportunities to work abroad having done a US int law degree.


I always thought that you could exceed the 1 page rule for CVs when you have a graduate degree.

Fulltimejob...where are you applying to schools?  Are you interested in IP?  If so, let's talk.

I am doing a masters in applied physics and working part time doing research.  I find that the stuff I'm learning and the research opportunities I've recieved while doing the degree are worth far more than the degree itself when considering law school admissions.  I did EE in undergrad and got my firm ass firmly handed to me.  What I expect is that law schools will see, among other things, growth and possibly some maturing as a student.  It's all going in the PS, can I get a what what?!

What is a USD scholarship?  I'm not familiar with that term.  Thanks.

Not Revielle I'm afraid.  I just happen to think collies are wicked awesome.  This is a picture of my sister's dog, Rio.

I bleed orange, my friend.
