If you can decide before you pick your school, you have a significantly easier time getting a job in Minneapolis going to the U of M, and I'm pretty sure UIUC students have an easier in to Chicago than Iowa students, and DEFINITELY Northwestern .
This +1. Go to UofM, or UChi or NWestern if you want to end up in those markets. Just be aware that a lot of grads in those cities have had a lot of difficulty getting jobs lately. Coincidentally Omaha is a hot market right now. You should really reconsider going back to Omaha (just my 2 cents).
