I.P. in Chemical Sciences a Viable Career?

I read over 100 posts on this forum on this subject, but most of the posts were pertaining to engineering or computers.
 
My background in brief:  B.S. in Chemistry/Biochemistry
and M.S. in Chemistry [both degrees from a tier on school, University of CA].  Also, I have 2 years at the lab bench after graduation. I am strongly considering attending law school & I am close to getting a clerkship at an IP firm.
 
My concerns:  
*Is my M.S. sufficient for a successfully IP career in the Chemical Sciences?
*How hard will it be to find a $135K+ salary if I attend a tier 2 school & end up in the top 15% of the class or if I get into a tier 1 school but end up in the middle of the class?
*Are a lot of the IP work for the chemical/pharmaceutical sciences being sent off-shore to India like in the computer industry?
 
 
I thank everyone in advance for the advice.  I apologize to anyone for my mistakes in this message or my general ignorance on the subject.

The most important thing is to do well in the first semester or year and to get a summer job with a patent firm or with a big firm in the patent department.  Gain experience that way, and keep the grades up for the next two years, and the high paying job is possible.
