It looks like I'm in!  How do the women dress?  What is the average age of new hires?  I have alot of  suits that are tweed with matching jackets/dresses.  I hope that will be okay. I don't really like khakis at all.  

 
Wear what you will be most comfortable in while sitting in front of a computer screen in a tiny office. That is what you will be doing 99% of the time. Nobody cares what you are wearing so be comfortable.

Hello, and thank you to all the examiners/practitioners/applicants who have posted on this thread and kept it alive. I have found it to be extremely informative.
 
I am currently a registered patent agent, in my second year of law school, who is interested in a future career at the USPTO as an examiner. I have a BSEE.
 
My question is:
 
Should I stick around and get a MSEE prior to applying for an examiner's position at the USPTO? Any thoughts?
 
Thank you for your time.

You should decide on getting (or not getting) an MS for reasons other than employment at the PTO.  I think it's a valuable credential even if the PTO does not value it very highly.
