Hot Chip

This won't come as a surprise to anyone currently in the game, but it's remarkable how hungry Silicon Valley is for patent attorneys right now. Computer Science and Engineering degrees will take you places. Almost every firm coming to our school for On Campus Interviews "prefers" students in the top ten percent, with law review and moot court. However, firms requiring technical degrees prefer students in the top third of their class, with no extracurriculars necessary.

Just a note to say I love this title. And I know you know I do.

This makes sense. People with those bacgrounds usually have work experience which makes the tranisition to firm life easier. Plus, they can actually make material contribution based on their technical experience.
