Loyola Chicago ($$) vs. Texas

Postby thinkbig » Thu Apr 29, 2010 1:38 am

I know I want to practice law in Chicago. I've been accepted to UT (sticker) and Loyola Chicago ($20k/yr). ]

$60k less debt coming out of Loyola, and a strong alumni network in the city. But UT is higher-ranked nationally.

What would you do? Please vote.

I think that UT will probably give you more options, generally, than will Loyola-Chicago. Loyola may make it easier, right off the bat, to get into the Chicago market, but I'd be willing to bet that the doors that UT will be able to open will be bigger and better.

Question, though: How is it down to these two schools? If you can get into UT, I'd expect you could get into UIUC (with a little money, maybe), which would be a nice middle ground for you.
