"Do you mean that patent agent is practically a paralegal?"
 
In some situations/firms ... yes.  But typically no.  Remember, "patent agent" is a title granted by the USPTO, it does not indicate the type of work you are doing.  There are probably patent agents who are working as (for example) high school teachers.
 
"What kind of salaries patent agent can realistically expect (e.g. in NYC) ?"
 
I interviewed for a patent agent job in Manhattan last summer.  The salary was about $75-$80k.

I am graduating in August with a MS in Organic Chemistry.  I want to become a patent agent, but I have no experience and I have not taken the exam yet.  I just decided to graudate in April.  So, I am just now beginning to write my thesis and I feel that I will not have time to study for the PTO exam.
