chicago vs penn placement

Postby Mack.Hambleton » Mon Mar 30, 2015 2:18 am

Wondering if someone could shine some light on a comparison between these two schools, mainly in biglaw placement. I know from the raw BL+FC stats they both place around 70%, but what I've heard is that Chicago has an adavantage at more elite firms and firms would go deeper into Chicago's class (although I don't know how much deeper) is this true? Can they be considered peers or does Chicago have enough of an advantage in placement it would be better to go there for the placement all things being equal?

Also somewhat related, is either school better at placing students into business/consulting jobs straight out (albeit the very small portion that get these jobs)?

Forget where you want to work. Which one costs less? The difference in placement ability between these kind of schools isn't going to be significant enough to outweigh a substantially lower cost of attendance. We're not talking Stanford vs. Georgetown.
