Does anybody know which one of Chicago's law schools have the stronger alumni networks relative to one another? I know Depaul is considered 'Chicago's law school' with the most alumni working in the Chicago area. But I was wondering how does John Marshall, Loyola, and Chicago-Kent's alumni networks fare against each other?

This might be a question with no concrete answer, but I'm going to shoot anyways. When people use the term "region" is there any general definition of how big of an area that covers? Are people using the term as in the Great Lakes Region, Northeast, Northwest, etc.? Some law school websites say you should stay in-state.

At what point does the importance of the national rankings over take the importance of regional networking?
I have aspirations to practice at a small law firm setting in Chicago, and I'm trying to assess would it be wise to settle for a T4 law school close by based on its large network in the area or should I go to a T2 that is out of the region. Obviously there are T2 schools in the Chicago area, but I'm trying to plan ahead in the event I do not get into any of the Chicago T2 schools. Any ideas would help. Thanks!
