USPTO Degree Requirements

Can anyone provide some insight on the USPTO's Degree requirements?  I have a Bachelors of Scienve from an Irish University in Mathematics and Mathematical Physics and a Master of Science in Engineering Sciences (Aerospace Engineering) from UC San Diego.  Through both I have taken numerous physics type courses, such as solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, etc.  However, the only course that was designated as 'Physics' was a first year course with less than 40 semester hours and no lab work.
 
Does anybody know what my chances are?  I have just finished 1L at UC Hastings and came to law school to be a patent lawyer.  Any experiences, opinions, and best guesses are very welcome.
 
Thanking everyone in advance.

To get a conclusive answer, it would be better to send in your application to the USPTO and have them evaluate your transcripts and eligibility.

Thanks BioPick.  Should have mentioned this, but I am amassing scores of course descriptions as we speak.  The reason I am interested in my chances is that to take the patent bar this summer, I will need to start studying for it right now.  I don't want to lay down $1K+ if my chances of getting clearance aren't good.  
 
Thanks for the reply.

Don't forget you must also be a legal resident of the US to take the exam...
