Unfortunately my undergrad is in Computer Information Systems (business degree) so I'm ineligible for the patent bar. Otherwise I think I would love patent law.
And I agree that it seems like the patent jobs are easier to get than the others. It makes sense with the higher barriers to entry in the form of a required technical undergrad degree.
Well, since you aren't going into patent law (assuming), IMHO deferring would be wise. Like I mentioned earlier, 55k towards off of your loans is amazing. Realistically, if you don't defer and attend this fall, you won't be able to put that much towards loan in that extra year of work, ya know?
Still, it's only one opinion and you should take it with a grain of salt.
EDIT: ma grammar is crap, oh well
