Based on everything you've said, I would go to Chicago-Kent. They have a decent rep in the Chicago area, and you're going to make plenty of contacts while you're there. It doesn't matter what state you take the bar in as long as you take the BARBRI course for that state. Also, as far as rankings in specific areas go, most employers don't even know they exist. Don't primarily base your decision on rankings.
Whatever you think will make you happy is the answer of course, but I'd start looking for housing in Chicago. Good luck.
