From my personal experience (w/west garage), if you come in around...
6:30 - 1st/2nd floor
7:30 - 2nd/3rd floor
8:30 - 4th floor
9:30 - 5th floor+
I think there are 7 floors, but I've never had to go all the way to the top. If you arrive around noon, I imagine you may have to go higher and higher, but then there's always people leaving, too. Driving up to the 5th floor is about 0.4 miles... ... ...

i agree with GuestV perfectly. Also, in total we have 2 garages, EAST and WEST with 7 floors each. So parking is not a problem.

If you're interested in intellectual property at the policy level, is the PTO a good place to get started?

Just wanted to chime in.  I've done a good deal of reading/soul searching trying to convince myself that becoming a patent agent is the right thing to do.  I'm commmitted to moving to the VA/MD area this Spring already.  I've got over 15 years of experience as an engineer, graduating in Dec. (BSEE) finally.  Want to go on to Masters, not law.  The deals they are offering sound too good to be true.  What to do, what to do.  I'll keep reading (thanks for the posts) but any additonal insight is appreciated.
 
Thanks,
RZ
