I've spoken to a couple of the partners at the top IP law firms that I will eventually want to work at and they all told me that the quality and type of undergrad major matter a lot to them. In fact, I chose this path partly because of their advice. They don't hire people without at least a B.S. in a hard science or engineering (of course a Ph.D. is preferred). I can't imagine that law schools won't give my application a little boost over someone with a Political Science degree. I mean I'm graduating with over double the units most of my peers are graduating with.

And I was wondering about my majors, I don't need financial advice and clearly want to be a lawyer... Not everyone is in the same financial situation as you, but thanks.

I'm a Biochemistry-Molecular Biology/Business Economics/Global Studies triple major finishing up my junior year. I will be graduating in 4 years (next year) and have started getting my applications together. I was just wondering what your thoughts are on the triple major and my chances. I know many of you said that triple majoring doesn't matter, but most of the threads where that was posted, it was in reply to people triple majoring in non-hard science fields, not even Economics. I have a 3.35 GPA, with my upper-division GPA at 3.5.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I want to do biomedical patent prosecution.
