Nixing Law School in Favor of a M.U.P?

I'm considering urban planning as an alternative to law school. Do any planners/lawyers have feedback/advice on this?

I've decided that in case I don't get into a top tier law school, I'd rather take a Masters program in something that will allow me to get a decent job at graduation while I wait for a few years and perhaps re-apply to law school when my GPA/experience is stronger. (I'm graduating in December with a degree in political science.)
I'm interested in urban planning because of the aspects of design and technology that really appeal to me as well as the analytical rules/working with the public side which appeals to the poli sci/law dork in me. Does this seem like a good fit? I'm mostly interesting in sustainable communities and transportation planning with a focus on bikes/pedestrian friendliness.
