So I am taking the October LSAT and considering applying ED to one of these two schools. I realize that its hard to ask for advice on this considering I don't have a LSAT score yet, but for the sake of argument, I want to focus on which school has better job prospects right now. Also, for GULC, are employment prospects any different for part-time students who transfer into the program after their first year versus those students who were full-time from the beginning? Any help is greatly appreciated!

I transferred from the PT program after my first year. My experience was that employment prospects were equal (at least that was the case prior to the crash). To be honest, the PT transfer rarely came up. It did, however, come up at the interview firm I ended up working out. If anything, it was a good opportunity to gain some substantive legal experience and keep down the debt. It allowed me to avoid debt until my second year of school.
I think GULC gets an unfair rap on TLS (I'm biased, I know). There are a lot of students, but OCI is also commensurately massive. At least when I interviewed, it was the second largest OCI in the country by number of firms attending (after Harvard). I think NW is unquestionably better for Chicago, but I think they are pretty close when it comes to NYC.
