Kent is about 20 schools higher on the US News and World Report rankings than Loyola. But, Kent doesn't have as many journals as Loyola does. However, Kent's journal takes top 7% and Loyola's law review takes top 5%, so it would likely be harder to get into Loyola's top journal. According to NALP, Kent has a higher percentage of graduates that go into public interest law (about 1% more, which is significant becuase not many people go into public interest).
I think Kent has an overall better reputation than Loyola. But, what I don't know, and what maybe someone here could help with, is what is OCI like for either school? Do many public interest positions come to OCI at either school? Has anyone participated in any of the public interest clinics?
