Hey all, this is my first post.  I really enjoy this site.  So here's the deal....I am a graduate student at the University of Washington, working on my Ph.D. in biomedical research.  I plan to defend in Spring '07, and will be applying to JD/MBA programs this fall.  I plan to take the LSAT/GMAT this spring and don't anticipate any problems...I only intend to apply to/attend schools with consensus ~Top 12 law and business schools.  That narrows down the list quite a bit, pretty much to:

Berkeley
Stanford
UCLA
Yale
Chicago
Northwestern
Harvard
Michigan
Columbia
Cornell
Duke
UVa
maybe Texas

My question is, as someone interested in biotech-related IP law (among other things, obviously), would I pretty much be at a competitive disadvantage by going anywhere other than Stanford or Berkeley, where one can pretty much immerse oneself in this specialized field?  I'm hoping with my doctorate, and the JD/MBA, I can pretty much write my own ticket, regardless of the geography of my next graduate institution (assuming it's a great one).  I welcome your thoughts and comments.  Thanks!
