If intellectual property law is what the OP want to do, then I recommend that the OP does his/her damndest to see if William Mitchell will give him/her any money.  It's completely logical to attend a school with a great program in the area you'd like to practice. 

If Mitchell won't budge, then I wouldn't blame you for choosing UST.  I simply don't think it'll necessarily help your career prospects in your preferred areas of practice.

Yes, but I would not recommend to the OP to take on 90,000 dollars of debt, I think that will hurt his career prospects

Take my word for it: your future employers won't consider how much school debt you carry a dealbreaker (it's actually quite irrelevant).  Do the research, OLinMN, and make the decision for yourself on which school will give you the best prospects.  Good luck.
