Alumni Perpective: Undergraduate Research

Danielle Letting '99

Patent Attorney
Sterne Kessler Goldstein Fox,
Washington, DC

 “My experiences conducting research as an undergraduate at Ursinus College laid the foundation for a successful academic career as a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania and as a law student at the Georgetown University Law Center.  By working one-on-one with professors,  I not only learned how to design experiments, critically analyze data and draw conclusions, but also how to take ownership of my work.  These skills are skills that I use everyday as a patent attorney working for a law firm in Washington D.C”.
