It would be helpful to look at the statistics of law schools that you are considering: for example, GPA v. LSAT
 
Top 1 through 5
Top 10 through 15
etc
 
It doesn't hurt to apply for top 5 law schools in IP and also apply for some of top 10-20 law schools.

I have the same exact numbers as you (3.3/172) and have been told by pre-law advisors and law school admissions consultants that I should get in or get waitlisted at the schools ranked around #7 on down, so definitely set your sights higher.  Plus, I've always thought of admissions as being somewhat arbitrary at times, so definitely take a shot and apply to all the schools you'd like to attend, even if they seem out of reach.  You never know, and it's worth the application fees to have a chance.  Also, try to get your applications in as early as possible because the schools will be a little less numbers-conscious at the start of the admissions cycle.  Best of luck!

I'm glad you are all much more optimistic than I am... I still don't think I have a shot at any T20 with my low gpa...
 
That said, what are the career prospects for a EE patent attorney out of schools such as Santa Clara, Cardozo, and UHouston??
 
Thanks again!
