My interests are shifted more towards computer science topics, especially networking. But I did take many EE courses in my undergrad, so I have a strong background on that too.
Honestly, the big paycheck is what initially geared my attention towards this career path. Other than that, engineering work at the Master's level is at least initially pretty dull and monotonous (permanently stuck in front of a computer). I've also become disappointed with the lack of social and networking skills of the people in this area, which makes me feel depressed at times.
On the other hand I don't think these by themselves are enough reasons to jump boats. I guess law can also be dull and excitement in any career depends on what you make out of it. Plus being an attorney certainly requires longer hours of work. So that's why I'm asking about any particularly good resources that talk about patent law work.
