College Major and Patent Law

What college majors are hot in IP? What's not?  
 
Which ones do you need advanced degrees for and which ones do you not?  
 
Any particular degrees guarantee you an associate job right out of law school?

I suggest that you not concern yourself with what is "hot" at the moment.  What is hot today will be tepid tomorrow.  Study what interests you and what you have an aptitude for.
 
As an undergraduate you have visions of becoming a patent attorney, and that's fine.  But many things can change for you while you are in college.  This is your opportunity to learn and explore, develop broad knowledge, problem solving skills and good interpersonal skills; those factors will be far more important in later life than going into a "hot" area.

It does not matter what your degree is, per se.
 
What matters is your experience and knowledge in the field.  Pure academic knowledge from a BS is not valuable.  Knowledge and experience in the field with a BS, MS etc, is what is desired.
