(I also like Chicago and am open to practicing there but would prefer DC over it). Does Kent's IP reputation make it a better choice than the DC area schools? Also, if I do go with one of the DC area schools, which out of American and Maryland should I go with. Thanks for the help.
FTIW, I know someone who is a hiring partner at one of the biggest IP firms in DC who went to Maryland (this person is young too). Not sure what it means, but it tells you that at least one Maryland alum is in a high place in DC IP.
I wouldn't think Kent would place so well in DC and American seems to focus more on PI and international law. That, in addition to the cost of AU (I think Maryland is significantly cheaper even with out of state tuition), I'd go with Maryland.
