Hard to find a patent job with only BS in bio?

I have a BS in Integrative Biology from UC Berkeley.  But that degree focused more on ecology and anthropology, although it did include some courses on biomechanics, genetics and anatomy.
 
How difficult will it be to find a job as a patent lawyer with just a basic bachelors degree like this?  I notice that in regarding most bio patent positions, most people have PhDs in a more focused field like Molecular Biology or genetics... and that's kind of daunting... Undecided

This question has been asked on these boards many times in many different ways. Most bio people without advanced degrees are uncomfortable with the answer, but the response is always the same.  
If your goal is prosecution in the life sciences, then you are out of luck without an advanced degree. Yes, there are exceptions but they are rare.
