Assuming you're planning on staying in Chicago after graduation, and assuming you're not concerned about a specialty field (IP for Kent, child & family for Loyola, etc), then just apply to all 3 and go with which ever one offers you the most money. They all place pretty close in the Chicago region, so if you are near the top at any of the 3 schools, you'll be fine.
I wouldn't agree with this 100%. DePaul is currently a step behind Loyola and Kent. Between Loyola and Kent, it depends. A some mentioned, it's a no-brainer if you want to do child/family law. Loyola has a great program in that area. I'd also say our tax program is better than Kent's. Loyola generally is considered to have a stronger alumni network, but I think that is evening out now that Kent has been good for a solid amount of time.
The one thing that annoyed me about Kent when I applied was their scholarship conditions. I also know people at Kent who lost HUGE money after 1L b/c they give out more scholarships than possible to keep.
If you couldn't tell, I go to Loyola. Both Loyola and Kent are fine options depending on your preferences.
