General Board / Re: Kent vs. DePaul vs. Loyola (chicago)

Loyola is better than depaul, but ranked lower than kent.  Depaul has more alumni than the other two schools.  They are all seen as the same in the eyes of employers who will only scoop the top of the class from these 3 schools after they get all the NU and U of C students than can grab ::)

General Board / Re: Where does the bottom 50% end up?

Right... 90% of the class at a T14 can get a biglaw job, if they want it.

I was responding to the OP, who is at a T2.

I don't think the top half of a t2 has the "option" of a biglaw job.  I top 15% is more like it give or take 10% depending on the market

I would strongly advise taking next year off, working and studying for the LSAT.  Take it again in the fall.  You have an O.K average.  If you study hard enough and raise that score up, you will have a better shot at getting into a decent school.  Best of Luck 8)

General Board / Re: How to become a professor?

you have to graduate from the highest possible school that you can (The higher end of of the T-14 helps), Judicial Clerkship (Federal appellate level or higher helps a lot), law review, and being the top of your class.  This is the criteria for teaching at the top schools. Most schools throughout the tier system have equally high criteria.  Although, if you do well at the school you go to, you have a good chance of becoming a teacher at the school.  How would it look if   some tier 3 school didn't hire any of its grads?  I am sure the people from more elite school will have a competitive edge over everyone else, but people from all schools have some fraction of the class that ends up in academia.  Some schools just have higher percentages. 

No you don;t have to write a big report or a dissertation.  You can take classes were you can submit a paper as a final instead of an inclass exam.  And I know that there are comparative law classes that allow you to compare different legal systems.
