I was wondering if anyone is planning to attend the Rutgers Open House Mar. 29 or the Seton Hall events Mar. 30 & 31?
I agree with Matokah's comments. I am a PT who lives in Chicago. I chose DePaul (starting in the fall) because of my experience with the school (got an MS from them), alumni network, and the health law program. You can ask as many people as you want which school is better and you'll get different answers every time. They all have great reputations in the city and relatively good programs. Visit the school and get a feel for it. You'll figure out easily after that which one you like the best.
As a Chicago native I can clarify - Loyola is in the River-North/Magnificent Mile area. It is close to a lot of wealthy/socialite locations. There is no way to afford to live in anything bigger than a shoebox within walking distance (unless you are working). However, it is right off the El (elevated train) which runs along the North side of chicago to some really great neighborhoods for 20-somethings. DePaul is also right on an El stop (actually almost every El-line has a stop there) so you can live pretty much anywhere in the city and get there easily. It's about 10 minute walk to the suburban metra trains and in the heart of the downtown-business district. Kent is right next to the suburban metra train stations, but a little farther away from the El trains - still right in the downtown business district, though.
