So you aren't going to room with me at USD? lolWell, good luck on figuring this out. Maybe Santa Clara would be better for IP but then I always hear that you should go to the best school since employers don't care about specific programs, they only care about the schools name. In which case, perhaps I should go to Case Western Reserve.
/wave at fellow EE Patent law! They're both in the same state, so the location is mostly out of the question. Santa Clara is ranked 8th in IP law, while San Diego doesn't even show up. Does this really matter though, not really, it just means there is likely to be more IP classes offered at Santa Clara. It is really going to come down more to which costs less, is cooler looking and you just have an overall better feeling towards.Start looking at the patent bar, that will probably help your job prospects more than picking between two similar schools.
