There is no prestige or difficulty in either
Idk about you but my Ctrl and C and V keys are worn out from all this expert report writ- I mean, assisting an expert with writing their report.

Pros is the opposite of prestigious.

i will grant you that as a patent litigator you have a somewhat higher chance of your name appearing as a footnote in a law360 article that a handful of lawyers will read

although as a patent prosecutor you have a somewhat higher chance of being deposed in a patent case, which is the highest honor any lawyer can achieve

unless you're a patent troll, then you're a pos either way
TBF biglaw patent lit bros should be infinitely grateful for the existence of patent trolls because without them at least 1/2 of us get canned.

I figured that I would post an update. I applied to five law schools already: Harvard, UChicago (ED), Columbia, UPenn, UVA, and Georgetown. I plan to finish up NYU, Yale, BU, and Cornell apps soon.

I was already offered an interview to Columbia and UChicago and have those at the end of the week. I have not heard any updates anywhere else.

Other important points about my application (if it is helpful for applicants):
5 on GRE writing (~93rd percentile)
First Generation Student (both for undergrad and then law)

Thanks for the update, it's a helpful data point in a world where we have no data on GRE applicants. Let us know which schools you get into/scholarships if you can, that'd be awesome.

Quick update. I had my interview with Columbia today. I only got five questions:
1. Why did you choose your undergrad?
2. Why did you choose your two majors?
3. Why law?
4. Why Columbia?
5. What did you do at the USPTO?

I think they just wanted to figure out why an engineering student is seeking a career in law.
