Haven't been to DePaul, but Loyola is gorgeous. Everything is very new and nice, and the atmosphere is incredibly professional. Like you're stepping into the job on day 1. I loved it when I visited. In fact, my visit convinced me not to submit binding apps to higher ranked schools.
I got 19K a year from DePaul, do you think Loyola would be open to negotiating matching that offer even though they are ranked higher? I know Loyola hasn't sent out offers yet, but I dont anticipate theirs being as good as DePaul. I think the facilities are very important, albiet not nearly the most important aspect of choosing a school.
You know, I really haven't heard much about how Loyola is with money. Even though Loyola is ranked higher, I would definitely think DePaul is a "peer school," so it's always worth a try. What's the worst that could happen? I would wait until you get the Loyola offer though.
