You made the right choice, T4 law schools are largely a money pit.  Even the top third of the class will make an average salary about 50-70% less than what you will bring in as a pharm.
 
Your opportunity cost to spend 3 years at a T4 law school will approach $500,000 in tuition and lost wages.
 
Do pharm for 5 years, live like a student and bank your $$.  Take the patent bar in your spare time, pass it, and try to tinker around with patent work in your spare time.  If you end up liking it, try to get into a Top 25 law school and write a check for your tuition.
