Your choices are already limited by wanting to go PT.  Many law schools do not have a PT program.

Deciding to go part time does limit your choices, but not
necessarily fatally.   There are a few top tier schools
with evening programs.  Emory in Atlanta and some schools
in DC for example.

Thanks for the input. If I chose to go full time, a similar question arises which is, what is the best criteria for choosing a school that foucses on a patent/intellectual property?  I have read that it is as if not more mportant to graduate at the top of the class, than to simply graduate from a top tier school. Also, after graduating with a jd degree, does my Ph.D. have a strong influence on being able to find a position as a patent attorney? Thanks!

I don't think the number of IP or patent courses offered by
a law school is an important consideration.  Unless you feel
that taking such courses would result in better grades, I'd
recommend making a choice on the basis of the general
strength and reputation of the law school.
