Biglaw and boutique IP firms are actually considering higher salary scales/bonuses for associates holding teachnical, and especially EE, degrees.oh yeah, I know it. indeed, I'm laying the groundwork for a V20 1L SA. as long as I don't f-up the interview in mid-December I should be able to land even that. As a bottom-of-the-barrel T14 factory student. The NYC firms are due for another increase to at least $180k for working in NYC to make sense; hence once IP salary scale is in place on top of that, salary scale should be around $200k by the time I graduate. *crosses fingers*

I am graduating a big ten university with a 3.74 gpa in Electrical Engineering and a 166 LSAT. I want to do patent law. How much does an engineering degree matter, and what schools should I aim for( good reaches and targets on the east coast).
I would say 166 for an engineering major is pretty impressive considering you beat out many liberal arts majors who read more than you. Engineering major will definitely help you get in, but it's another story in school because you'll soon realize that those who can write well (e.g. English majors) have a huge advantage over engineers because most exams are essays.
I can't believe these obnoxious Michigan students, who use the board not to share information, but to socialize (as pathetic as that is)
All this EE talk scares the *&^% out of me... I have an engineering degree, but its in engineering management.. I got the OK to take the patent bar... but are you all telling me that even if I do well in school, that I wont get a job doing patent work because Im not mech or EE?
Previous work experience is important for EE/CSs getting into IP. You really need to have done technical work in order to be able write good patents. So, Rocket, if you can hold your own technically, you'll do fine.
