I would also include George Washington as IP grads go back to California easily. With your stats and URM status you will get into tons of schools. You want to apply broadly and many schools so after you get your acceptances, you can then negotiate scholarship amounts.
If you want to save more money for Law school, think about retaking for a higher score to cop that free scholly money.
You said IP...what was your undergrad degree in?
I graduated with two degrees, one in Political Science and the other in Digital Technology which is where I discovered IP law. And could you elaborate on how/why IP grads go back to California easily? is that from any location back to California or just D.C.?
California has a lot of technology and GW has a wealth of IP classes. I have spoken with a few students there and they informed me it's not hard to get good IP jobs if you are IP secure. You are not. IP secure means that you can sit and take the patent bar. These are the qualifications:
Well so you know, IP is harder to come by without an actual technical degree. (Think engineering, computer science, chemistry). Unless you go to a top school with great grades, it will be hard to get into the non science focuesd IP such as trademark and licensing.

I think saying they don't correlate AT ALL is a little strong.
just ball up the latest copy of USNews and throw it in the trash. There fixed
