Well it looks like I'm not going to get a phone call from the USPTO with the job position closing up.  I feel kind of down because this was my last grasp at ip law before I tried to find something else to do with my life.
 
 
By the way, you ME's are a lucky bunch.  Contacted Pete Cuomo and he seems like a really cool guy.

Does anyone know details about the tuition reimbursement that the USPTO offers?  I can't seem to find any literature on it.
 
I've heard that they include the tuition in your paycheck, so then it is taxed just like your regular pay.  If this is true, does this even leave enough to pay the actual tuition?  How much tax do you end up paying?

Call me a pessimist if you want, but what happens to the income tax (on the recruitment incentive portion of your income) you paid over the the 2 years, if you resign (or get fired) say in the 3rd year?  
 
In such cases, you have to reimburse the prorated recruitment incentive to PTO, but you'll never see that part of the income tax ever again, right?

Hey future Patent Examiners,
 
If there's anyone in need of housing, I have a master bedroom with full bath, walk-in closet, vaulted ceilings, driveway parking, and all utilities included in a townhouse very close to the PTO on Eisenhower   The price is $890.  I'm also a patent examiner and we'd be the only two living at the townhouse.  
 
Feel free to email me at elmer dot chao at gmail dot com.
