I have a PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology. I applied several months ago with the USPTO and have heard that they still haven't hired any GS-11 Biologists. Does anyone have any idea if they will? Huh

Not likely.  A friend who works there recently told me that they were pretty much finished with 2007 hiring for biotech.  Apparently things are slightly different if you have a pure chemistry degree.

Just got fired from the USPTO.  For those of you just signing up, know that it isn't easy to survive there past the probationary period.  Also, know that they will fire you if you come in at a higher leve (GS-11) and can't make production.  Better to start at a lower level even if the salary sucks.

From what I have read in researching this job, it seems like there are people who love it and people who hate it.  Since I have always had an interest in law and am not in love with engineering, I hope that I am in the former group.
 
Fingers crossed!
