Loyola Chicago vs. Chicago Kent

Postby ajmiller290 » Sat Mar 06, 2010 1:22 pm

I've gotten into both, along with American, Penn St., DePaul, and a few others. If I want to practice in Chicago, which is the better school to attend? Also, does either have any specialty?

UGPA 3.5, LSAT 164

Loyola is giving me $15k and Kent $20k.



Suggestions, comments, please. I have no clue where to go.

That's the impression I've been getting. I'm just not sure how concerned I should be about the saturated Chicago market and the number of great schools that feed into the area.

I've actually heard the opposite: Kent > Loyola for biglaw, so who knows which is correct.

Anyway, readers be wary of this charlesjd character. All you have to do is read some of his other posts to see what I mean.

Chose Loyola.

Take this dude's opinion with a grain of salt:

Honestly, I would chose DePaul over Loyola.

Also, DePaul is climbing rankings and Loyola is falling.
