This person advised me to go to Loyola or Kent if it ponied up more $$$.....and not to worry about DePaul.
I've heard that and the rankings back it up. But would you mind asking your associate his guess as to why there are more DePaul grads in the top 10 chicago firms than loyola grads and kent grads. Just for one example... Kirkland and Ellis, chicago's biggest firm... DePaul grads employed 27, Kent Grads 21, Loyala Grads 13.
Looking at one or two or even ten firms isn't terribly informative. Sure, top ten in Chicago = biglaw and mega salaries. But look at it realistically. Kent has more associates placed into the 100 largest firms in Chicago that any other law school.
Now THAT is a useful bit of info. source?
It is mentioned on page 94 of the viewbook, and Dean Krent also mentioned it at the admitted students reception tonight.
