awkward follows you like a beer chasing a shot of tequila.
3.6 gpa in engineering from a well-known school is great.Work experience is great.It really comes down to your LSAT, though. If your numbers are competitive for any given school, you'll have a fair shot. Depending on what that particular school thinks of people with tech backgrounds, you might have a slightly better shot than your numbers would suggest.Anecdotal evidence hints that lower ranked schools up through some of the T20 or even into the T10 really like getting people with tech backgrounds. The major may act as a so-called "soft" factor, basically. Then, it kind of flips... it seems a bit harder to get into the very highest ranked schools. Some have and will continue to do so, of course, but this just seems to be the basic story.I assume you're interested in IP work after law school, probably patents? If so, my experience has been that IP firms truly appreciate people with some substantial work experience before law school, especially if it's in a technical field.
I hate science because I refuse to assume that a discipline based in large part on the continual scrapping and renewal of ideas is unconditionally correct in a given area.
