Like Rage said, I've heard the order of Kent, Loyola, DePaul, John Marshall. I've heard John Marshall is basically a waste of time, however; since there are so many other law schools in Chicago, they really have to scrape the bottom of the barrel.
In regards to John Marshall, their application demands you add an addendum detailing all parking citations. I thought this was a misprint, so I called. It's not, they want to know every parking ticket.
This seems ridiculous on both a logistical level (how the hell could I remember all the parking tickets I've gotten) as well as a bizarre overstep on privacy. But, I guess how many parking tickets one has is indicative of how well one will practice law?
Are you really sure you called them, since I did and confirmed what the traffic violation requirement means. Also, it would be pretty damn tough for anyone to ascertain who has howmany/any parking tickets, considering that a parking ticket is given to the vehicle and not a person. They wanted to know about moving violations, which is something that the Illinois Bar Assoc wants to know about for clearance down the road.
