come on successful past PLIP goers-what's your advice for these 20 minute interviews?:

 
Am I missing a joke?
 
If you are getting a 20 minute interview why would you blow it being goofy?  20 minutes is enough to answer questions about yourself and to create an impression with your own questions.  
 
The minimum you should accomplish in an interview is a honing of your interview skills.   Don't rehearse being a flake.
 
The tough situations are those where you get a few seconds of face time to convince the interviewer that you deserve a real interview.    Making an impression in 20 minutes given time to prepare ought to be a piece of cake.

Okay, thanks for your response.
 
It is not a joke.  I just don't get talking to someone about science that themselves are not even a marginal scientist-just got a degree and that is it.  It creates an odd vibe.

Many interviews for patent positions do not involve technical questions.   I'd suggest doing an online search for law firm interviews and you'll get the kinds of things that are generally asked and even some guidance on the types of questions you might like to avoid.

Mr. Bogus,
I'm a 2L at a T2, decent first semester grades first, registered patent agent, clerking at an IP firm, unless these firms want only the top percentages from the top schools, I don't know what's wrong.
 
I did have one "not invited" change to a preselect though.
 
 
 
Question for anyone:  
Should I contact the employers I am interviewing with to give them an updated copy of my resume? My second semester grades were very good and I got on Moot Court. I feel this is something they should take into consideration even before I meet with them. Thoughts?
