Odd that writing  M e ri di an   a t   Ca rly le  turns into "**** at Carlyle" after posting it.

Apartmentratings dot com has good info. The M3r1d1an is one of the highest rated.  
 
As one might imagine, that's a pretty high end area. Here are the M3r1d1an rates:
Studio  $1265 - $1665
One Bedroom $1510 - $1910
One Bedroom w/den $1830 - $2130
Two Bedroom  $2100 - $2600
 
Personally I couldn't imagine paying up to $1665 for a studio. If you're just worried about the commute you could always find something close to the metro. Also, from what I understand parking at the USPTO is plentiful (but not free) so if you have a car you do not necessarily have to be close to the metro.

1. If I send out my resume to USPTO today, how long should I expect to hear from them?  Can I follow up with HR?  What is the hiring procedure like?

I filled out JARS August 28 and got an email from HR November 7. I had a phone interview November 14. I got another email November 27 to have me fill out the background check forms.
 
JARS works very slowly (if at all). Some people think that using the hiring contacts on the usptocareers dot gov website works well.
 
You can call human resources at (800) 786-9757.

I'm suppose to start on Jan 22, I'm still looking for an apartment....am considering the ****n at Carlyle or the Post Carlyle....depending on which has a studio available.  I figure for 8 months, I'll most likely be sleeping and studying and venturing out from homebase looking for something with a garage that is cheaper then these 2 units.
 
I've looked at a bunch of apartments on line and then checked them out on apartmentratings.com   and to tell you the truth....it seems pretty scary....everyone that I know that has been visiting in that part of the country thinks it's safe and clean...hmmmmm
 
I'm planning on going up there without a vehicle....I think my pickup truck will be more of a hassle, so I'll sell it down in TX.
 
Any suggestions?

I'm in law school now. I have one more year to go. I have a BS in Chemistry and I did research while an undergrad which led to publication.  
 
I want to work at the USPTO to get patent experience and take the patent bar. I'd expect to work there for a few years at least before I moved to a firm specializing in patent prosecution.
 
I also want to take advantage of the USPTO's federal loan forgiveness program - I think its 10K/year for six years. That would certainly make a dent in my loans.
 
Lastly, I'd finish at a lawschool in the area as a visiting student.
 
I sent in my application on Nov. 13. I contacted a hiring recruiter from the USPTO webpage and he said he'd forward my information to the Chemical supervisors and that the next interviewing would be in the early spring. The USPTO will also be holding a career fair on 1/5 in New York which I plan to attend. So, does anyone have any suggestions for me? Specifically, I'm pretty sure I want this job, so how do I make sure I get it?
