wow, kudos to you.  I would have shot myself.  Although, I'm probably more likely to be a BigLaw suicide statistic given my short attention span.

I've actually had a hiring partner at a big NY firm say "patent lawyers with good undergrand gpa's and research can sign their own tickets"

Ya, luckily I got a few interviews too.  I know so little about law firms, its sad.  I bid them based on geography.  Turns out when I was telling my friend, some of the firm names were actually big well known ones.  I was shocked.

I would also like to know this.  T. Durden, are you going to the patent recruiting event in Chicago?


I had class each day from roughly 10-2.  I would get to school at 9 and check email / review some stuff until class.  Go to class.  Then I'd work in the library untik 5 PM.  Usually I could finish everything, but occassionally I'd have an hour or so to do later that night that I'd bring home with me.  Then I had my entire nights free.  Saturday afternoon and sunday afternoons usually involved working on a memo or doing some reading for the upcoming week.

Seriously, these people spend WAY too much time studying.  Studying has diminishing returns, just realize that.

My best bud from 1L is interning there during the summer, so I'm gonna stay with him.  However, in addition to that 2 of my fraternity brothers live there and know the city pretty well so if we wanna go out, we can do that.  If we wanna start and email thread, my address is in my profile, feel free to shoot me a line.

I haven't taken the patent bar yet, I'm doing an internship this summer which eats my time to a point where I don't think I could study well enough.  Eventually though, I will be taking it.

I'm interviewing in Boston / DC / NY, but also Austin, TX.

I'm coming from BC.  I haven't found _anyone_ else who has done this or is going, unfortunately.

What regions are you interested in interviewing for?

I was Comptuer Engineering and Math in undergrad, and law school is easier, I'd say.  Definately different work.  I only went out Fri / Sat in undergrad, I go out and drink about 3 nights / week, but I generally go out and do something EVERYnight.  I'm not a genious, I go to a Top 25 school, and I finished in the top 1/3, so take it for what you will.

I will say I like the legal work I do right now (I'm a summer IP associate) far more than maintaining legacy code that some jackass wrote in 1985.  I was a great programmer, probably better than I will be equivalently as a lawyer, but the work just isn't as monotonous in law.

Plus, I firmly plan to do BigLaw for 3-5 years and either become a sports agent or realtor ;)

I started a thread about this here:,4722.0.html

I figured I'd advertise here since this forum probably gets more traffic.  Is anyone going / interested in going out the nights we're there?  What firms did you get selected for?
