Leading to MBA, engineering /law tech specialist

I am currently working in a software firm. I am not too happy with my current position. I have done my MS from a prestigious university in ECE ( electrical and computer engineering). I have been working at the software firm ( which is an internationally known big name place) for about a year. But working at such a huge place works against me, having started without any work experience.
I have been offered a position in a law firm as a technical specialist.The firm is located in what is supposed to be  the best area for law firms. It is a comparitively small firm, but well established in IP law.
My ultimate goal is to go for my MBA and work in planning and strategy.  
The job description sounds very interesting to me, and as a side advantage Wink it pays considerably more too. Also I get the opportunity to work with several new technolgies and people. I get to learn continously and do research and writing, both of which I enjoy.
I was wondering if anyone here had a similar career path or had  any insights into how moving to the tech specialist position might effect my chances to get into a good MBA university.
Might I also add another factor which might complicate matters. I am currently on my H1B status, and am not a citizen of Canada or mexico. This might mean I cannot even register as an agent until the status changes. As far as I can tell, that shouldn't effect me since I plan on moving on to a MBA, perhaps on a F1. But I am not certain.
I am very confused and any advice would be well appreciated.
