When it comes to these Chicago schools outside of Chicago and NU...Loyola, Kent, and DePaul still receive OCI from the major Chicago firms.(Kirkland, Sidley Austin, etc.)
I personally believe DePaul is the right choice here. Its downtown campus is growing into something of an actual campus. It is awesome to walk down jackson and see DePaul flags hanging on the whole street. Plus if you ever feel like making the trek up to lincoln park, you feel right at home as a DPU student.
When it comes to IP, Kent sometimes takes the cake because of the undergrad lean. The truth is that both are above average for tier 2 schools and both have been on the rise in recent years.
Ultimately your choice, but I believe they are very similar, so why not take the cash. PLUS you get the added bonus of having the daley's as alum
