I received admission to Franklin Pierece Law school. Is anyone else on this board attending FP. I'm a bit weary of the school because it's a small private school that only teaches law. FP, has an excellent reputation for Patent and IP law. It ranked in the top 3 in the U.S. news 2002 report for IP schools. Furthermore for the past ten years it has ranked no less than the top 6 for IP law; infact, in 1996, 1997, 1998 it was ranked number one for IP law.

Also, is it important to attend a large University that teaches law, along with various other acadmeic disciplines (ie medicine, undergrad programs and so forth) compared to a school that teaches only law such as FP.  

Any help would be grateful because I've given up med school to pursue a career in patents. I hope I made the right choice. My numbers were 148, 3.63 Honours Science Major. My last two year at school were 3.96. Thanks.
