What kind of people like working for the PTO?  What do they like about it?
 
Are the ones who leave for law firm jobs the ones who couldn't make it at the PTO, or is it the other way around?

mrworry: you worry too much.
 
There are enablement requirements in 112(1), and you could do a 101 rejection saying it is inoperative. You can even require a model or exhibit. Look in the MPEP.
 

 
 
I think my worry is very justified.  
 
If I (and many of us) get the misconception that the PE job requires only a B.Sc. degree and then jump into this career and find out otherwise (like many of the people alleged had quit or got fired probably for the same reason), then I'll be heading for disaster career-wise. It is always better to find out more about the nature of the PE job before committing to it.

Nobody is going to suggest that additional education and experience are not helpful, but the overwhelming majority of examiners in arts employing engineers are college graduates with BS degrees in engineering and not much post college experience.

Don't get so defensive. I answered your question.
 
Personally i don't think your worry is "very justified". They are hiring virtually everyone new straight out of college.
