Bear in mind that's it's tough to get a job in Chicago at a big firm--period. You're competing with UChicago grads (ranked #6 by U.S. News in 2008), Northwestern grads (#12), Chicago-Kent grads (#60), Loyola grads (#70), DePaul grads (#91), John Marshall grads (T4), Northern Illinois grads (T4) and a large majority of University of Illinois grads (#25). That's some pretty stiff competition. Saint Louis has a lot to offer; likewise , I think you'd be surprised with what the Midwest offers. Chicago is by far not the only "cultured" place around here.
