This forum has been very helpful in my research of working in the USPTO. Thanks for everyone who has given there input!  
 
Responding to kcoleISU, I would not be too worried about your GPA. I'm sitting at a 2.73 in ECE and I just got a job offer from the USPTO. I started my "hunt" in July, but there wasn't any real response until I saw them in person at my college's job fair.  
 
From my limited experience, if you keep at it you will get a reponse sooner or later. Try to get in touch with a SPE to speed up the process. Good luck!

I'm in a training class right now at the PTO and can tell you that they've hired a couple of people w/GPAs < 3.
 
There are also several people in my class w/ivy league phds and a guy who worked for ibm for 11 yrs and has 7 patents... so go figure.
