Where should I go next fall? / Re: UVA: VA-Resident Status
« on: December 28, 2004, 03:22:01 PM »
Mine originally said that Resident status was "pending", then maybe 2 weeks later, it said I was a resident.  I applied so early, that I don't know how it would slow the process.  I would assume that if you checked that you are a VA resident, they would consider you that and wait for the forms to come in.

The proximity of Mason for me is great, I live on Glebe Rd in S Arlington.  I'd probably save an hour a day in commute when compared to GW.

The main thing going to GW is its higher ranking and the strength of the IP program.  I've started asking some of the attorneys I speak with through my job what they would recommend, I'll let you know what they say.

By the way, I would think with your numbers, you should get in to GW, which would you choose?  Or which are you leaning toward?

Oh I'm keeping it open too.  I have several friends who just finished there so I know it's not 100% one way or the other.

I guess I don't want my sexuality to be a distraction during school.  Because of this, I think I'll prefer a school with a more liberal student body.  I know I should seek out different viewpoints and try to understand the arguments of others, but I've heard and understood about every anti gay argument to be made from Fox News, my undergraduate years, and even my own family.  I'd prefer not to rehash those arguments in Law School.

I have tried to find non-discrimination statements for the schools to which I have been accepted and also looked for their gay law school groups.  GMU is a little troubling since it is known as a very conservative law school, GW has a non-discrimination statement that includes sexual orientation.

Well, THalky, I'm a good person to ask, I've worked at the Patent Office fro 3 years as an examiner and just passed the Agent's exam.  I'm planning to work for a lawyer friend of mine part time during school prosecuting patents.

Long answer to a short question, yes I am planning to do IP there.  It's a very well respected program, especially in the DC area.  Feel free to email me if you want to chat more.

I was deferred back in early December for the part time program.  I'm still hopeful, but don't have my heart set on it.  I will go to Georgetown if accepted (assuming UVa is going to reject me).

I got the email on the 21st of December.  I was glad to get it as I wanted to have a top 20 option.  I've lived in the area for 6 years and got my Master's at GW going to night school.

I have also been impressed with the school, seem to have a lot of respect for their applicants.  It's also very cheap for those of us in VA.
