I wish they'd hurry up and sent out decisions already!!!!
It is vastly unlikely. I know of one IU-Indy grad that works in Chicago. Story goes like this: Graduated ~#2 in his/her class, clerked for the Indiana Supreme Court. One of the justices became a judge in Chicago, brought him/her with him. Eventually set him/her up at big-law in Chicago.
Chicago is oversaturated with law schools and lawyers. When there are Northwestern students looking for jobs, DePaul and Kent grads are out of luck. I don't logically see IU-Indy grads catching anything in that market.
This isn't to say without awesome ties and a high rank that it's impossible - just wouldn't bank on it.
