How about a MS degree with 8 years of research experience and two years of IP experience as tech advisor?  How much should I expect to get now that I have a registration number?

not that I don't like where De's message is going, but does this seem high to anyone else, even for boston or new york?

If you have PhD and no patent experience, the current market starting compensation is 95k in salary, 25-30k in tuition, and low billable hours.
 
If you have law degree, an undergrad degree, and no patent or legal experience, the starting salary is 135k and upto 40k bonus.
 
This is not a lab job and your work is not for "charity"...! I hope, you guys won't sell your background cheap...??!!

De - Do you know what type of billing rate goes with that salary?  What do you mean by low billing hours?  Thanks!

135k for a starting attorney at a large firm is actually a little low for NYC, but about right for DC.

If you are interviewing with someone with a strong technical background, you should not be surprised if you are asked technical questions.  Sometimes they will be asked to give you a chance to show your oral skills, on material with which you should be comfortable.  Other times, technical questions are asked to assess how you think, e.g., you could be asked about an obstacle that you overcame in a research project, to show how deeply you think about difficult problems.  It is your problem solving skills from doing research that will enable you to succeed, and technical questions may be used to probe such skills.  If you are interviewing with someone who is relatively new to their job, they may be more comfortable discussing technical matters as well.  I would guess that most questions will not be technical, but I know several people who ask them at interviews.  Most questions will likely be like those noted by Biopico and the others, and I agree with Ethan: don't fake it if you don't have an answer.  
Good luck!
