Marine biology background

I have a B.S. and M.S. in marine biology and just finished my 1L year.  I have a decent law school gpa (top 30%) and am 99% sure I qualify for the patent bar.  I am interested in patent law and since 95% of the people in my law school class are either poly-sci or english majors I feel it's a way to set myself apart.  My only concern is that my background, while meeting technical requirements for the patent bar, is not one of the traditional biochemistry/engineering backgrounds generally possessed by patent attorneys.  I am looking for any advice on whether this background will be applicable to patent law or if I would just be wasting my time taking the patent bar and pursuing a career in patent prosecution or litigation.

You should be fine for litigation.  Maybe someone else can chime in on your prosecution chances.

Any thoughts on the prosecution chances?
