Some of this information already appears on your Consent Form.  I am sorry you have to enter it again,
but please bear with me:  it will be helpful for me to have everyone's answers in a standard electronic format.

Pronunciation of your first and last names (if not obvious)
 ("Rhymes with" for a syllable or group of syllables always helps. Indicating the emphasized syllable by ALL CAPS is good, too.)

School and Department (if any)(e.g., Law or H&S/Physics)

If you have not been in school every year between September and May since age 15,
what else have you done and when and where did you do it?   Please include names of employers
if I would recognize them, or the nature of the business if I would not recognize the name, as well as
the location: city and either state or country; the year and duration;  and any other helpful information.

With how many patent applications have you been involved (however you wish to define "involved")?
None     1 to 3 More than 3
How many friends or relatives do you have who are involved with patents,
as inventors, patent lawyers or otherwise (again, defining "involved" however you wish)?
None     A few A lot

You may use this box to describe your exposure to patent applications, patents, and patent people, and to
define "involved."

 What do you hope to learn in this course?

At our first meeting, I will distribute a spreadsheet with everyone's information.
If you want me to omit any of your answers, please identify which ones.

Optional (for my eyes only):
What book(s) are you currently reading, other than assigned books or reference works related to your experiment.? 
If none, when was the last time you read a book other than something assigned or work-related?  What book?

Law Students ONLY: Please also complete the law questionnaire.
