I am the pretty standard future law student. I will being paying for school basically on my own. If I go to Kent I can live at home and save some additional money. I want to work in Chicago, just don't know what type of law yet. IU would be a lot more fun and is obviously a better school.

I saw Kent pop up on one of the top 250 firms hire from here lists, plus, with how much money it would save you, I'd say go to Kent. 45k + not having living expenses is a big deal.

Chicago-Kent is cheaper & already in the city you want to practice in. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

IU is almost 40K/year, you can't get in-state tuition and getting to Chicago from there is going to be an uphill battle.

Go to Kent.

deadpanic always with solid advice. Thanks.

Anyone else? I am leaning towards Kent. Is IU's placement/reputation in Chicago good enough to offset the financial gains from Kent?

No, IUB does not place better in Chicago than Kent. Neither is there a noticeable difference in reputation between the two schools in Chicago. I would go with Kent.
