I really don't have any geographical preference. That might be weird to some people but I don't have any ties to where I currently live so I'm pretty flexible when it comes to school/post-grad living.
What markets are the best for prosecutors? Additionally, how is Chicago's market? I know Northwestern & Chicago dominate the market (as well as Iowa, MN, WI, IN, etc. elbowing their way in), but are lower-ranked schools like Kent/Loyola/DePaul struggling to place students as far as DA positions go?
IMHO, it would be beneficial to go to a school in the area you have the strongest ties to, as employers often ask why their office. If you give a generic "I like it here" kind of answer, it seems to hurt your chances. This is all my opinion though and I could be completely wrong. Going to school in the area I grew up has certainly helped me so far.
