Does the quality of the IP program play any role in job opportunities? I've heard from some people to "go to the best school you can get into" while others that say that certain schools can help in getting a job in IP law.
My question boils down to this: Which school is going to give me better job prospects as a patent attorney, University of Texas or GW. How much of a difference does 5 or so in the overall ranking help, if at all?
I have no idea where I want to practice. As a result, I want to attend the school which gives me the best options for nation wide placement.
