Yeah,
 
Make sure either 1) you're at a top 14 school, where grades don't matter or either 2) your at a top 15 - 30 school, where grades matter a little bit.  
 
Otherwise, for every other school, make sure you're either 1) and EE in the top 25 percent or 2) any other engineer in the top 15 percent
 
Good Luck

A PhD in a life science going to law school would also do well, not exactly sure what grades you would need from any of the non-top schools. Also, you need a technical degree of some sort to do most of the major IP work, even if you are from a top school.

Can anyone find the thread from last year's program. I tried, but the search function on this site blows. I think I remember reading some really helpful posts back then...
