I'm not aware of any official policy not to hire applicant's with JD degrees.  I was a registered patent attorney when I was hired.  However some SPEs and ex-SPEs have told me that they were disinclined to hire JD holders because they felt they were retention risks.  
 
One SPE told me that while he would be suspicious of the motives of a new law school graduate, he would feel differently about an attorney who expressed dissatisfaction with law firm experience.

Sorry for a change of topic -- Does any one know what kind of benefit USPTO is offering for its employees?  My parents has no insurance and not eligible for medicare, I just wonder if USPTO offers medical insurance for employee's parents?

Just a quick question.  How long after receiving an unofficial offer should I expect to receive the official offer from HR?

I am starting at as a new examiner next week.  I am looking for a health club to join in the arlington area.  Does anyone has any suggestions?  Are there any discounts for PTO employees.  I prefer one with an indoor pool.  Thanks for suggestions.
