I am another life science guy B.S. biotechnology who will be going to UC Irvine in the fall to pursue a M.S. in Biotechnology and possibly a PhD. Do you think it would be more beneficial to work on another B.S. in chemical engineering( I started out in ChE, but switched) and my M.S. or go for the PhD. I've read its very comptetive for those with PhD's and it would take me about the same amount of time to finish. Then I would go to law school.  Huh Huh Huh

I was under the impression that ChE degrees are more valued in the patent market than my M.S. which I will be pursuing next fall. I already have a bunch of ChE classes and I could finish with the M.S. in Biotechnology and the B.S. in ChE in three years. If the M.S. will be sufficient to land a job after law school then forget the B.S. Tell me what you think....and yes undergrad girls are hot....especially in SoCal.

You would definitely be better off with the grad degree.  But what is your eventual goal.  If you want to become a patent attorney, then you should be working on your J.D. now, and you can take the patent bar at anytime as you already have the tech oriented degree.  If you are interested in working at the USPTO, then you should follow through with the Ph.D., but that is likely to mean a commitment of six years.
