Being a student at Toledo, Id also second that. However the difference between Wayne and Toledo is unimportant. Toledo may in fact make the jump back to being a tier 2 school, but it won't affect anything. Jumping back and forth a few spaces between tiers is good for nothing other than bragging rights. Come interview time, I will still have to compete with Wayne and MSU students.
I also find it ABSURD to go to Depaul. Why pay that much money for a degree that is only slightly better than schools 1/3 of the price? I can cover my tuition and very comfortable living expenses with the government 18,500 and don't need to seek private loans.
Depaul really makes me wonder. They have top notch facilities (Ive heard), are located in an amazing legal city, and seem to have pretty good placement in the area, but they are always a low 2nd or high 3rd tier school. Their numbers are decent too. Id find that scary if I was shelling out 120,000 for a law degree. Then I'd just get flat out pissed going to work with people 3 years later who have a third of the debt and the same job as you. But hey, you did get to live in the coolest city in the country for three years.
