Chicago Schools (metro, not regional) Loyola v Depaul v IIT

Postby tomtom23 » Sun Nov 14, 2010 11:05 pm

I am working on a law school game plan to cover all possible scenarios. This one has a slight chance of happening and I want to be ready if it does. Any help is appreciated.

Hypothetically, if I *had* to live in Chicago, I *had* to choose from a school in Chicago or one that is commutable (1 hr travel max), and I was guaranteed a full ride, here's how I would rank the schools:

1. Chicago
2. Northwestern
. . .

3 (tie). Loyola / DePaul / IIT (Chicago-Kent)

. . .

4. John Marshall
5. Northern Illinois (Just barely commutable but prob too far)

". . ." is used to signify the significant difference in ranking

We're assuming I intend to stay in Chicago or the Chicago 'burbs after graduation and that even though I am highly concerned about employment, I am slightly more concerned about the quality of the legal education (just slightly).

Can anyone help me break out the way I should arrange Loyola, Depaul, and Chicago-Kent and reasons why (pros and cons)?

Thanks

The one that gives you the biggest scholly.
Those 3 schools are comparable enough where their rank is highly irrelevant.
Get a High GPA, network, and profit.
