Nope. Law schools are small places man, so you pretty much get a feel for the prospects of each type of IPer. I've also spoken to biglaw IP associates about their field.

To be fair to your point, however, there are SOME firms where not having an IP background won't necessarily put you at a disadvantage but there are many more where it will.[/quote]
so they pretty much say a scientific background is necessary to succeed in IP?

I doubt that many would say that, its more about hiring advantage. The cutoff for someone with a BSEE might be significantly lower than for someone with an unrelated background - OPs question was just about what areas were "easiest" to get biglaw in.
