Only chance at anything from Kent is Chicago (maybe 5% get biglaw)--top 20% from Wisconin or more have a very good chance at biglaw in Chicago--many choose to stay in Wisco though becasue that is where they are from and want to practice---Kent is a TTT---just about anybody or any firm in Chicago will confirm
Not true. Lots of Wisconsin grads have trouble placing in Chicago. Overall, Kent is the better choice for Chicago but whether it is the better choice if your goals do not involve practicing in Chicago is a different question.
NOT TRUE: Almost ALL Kent grade have trouble placing anywhere in the world, including Chicago, b/c Chicago is their only hope (1-5% hope) doesnt mean they place better--what terrible logic! If you want Chicago, Wisco is the better option. No doubt or debate. You still have to do very well but someone at 15-20% class rank as Wisco has a decent shot at Chicago where at Kent they are basically hoping for hourly paralegal work.
