Long time reader, first time posting.  First let me say thanks to everyone on this board, you guys have been a huge help through all this.  I wish I had found this board about two months earlier.

My quesiton is this:  While researching where associates at the top law firms in Chicago went to school, I didn't see any Wisconsin JDs.  It seemed like Kent and Loyola had great placement, even though they are 2nd tier.  Am I wrong to just assume that Wisonconsin's stance in the rankings and proximity to Chicago = good job prospects??  Any help in this matter would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I'm VERY interested in this as well.  Wisc is one of my top choices but mainly because of its reputation AND proximity to chicago.  I hope it translates into good prospects.

I am also interested in this, too! Wisconsin seems more prestigious, but Kent/Loyola/DePaul have the advantage of being in the city so you can work PT during the year and make connections... Also, as an "older" student, I would like to study with people who have been in the work force for a while - does anyone know if more students at Wisconsin are right out of college than the city schools, since it's college-town location? Thanks!

Also looking seriously at Wisc, myself.  I think the whole no-bar exam in Wisconsin thing may be a part of it.  Combine that with the low cost of living, and I imagine a lot of people stay there.

i would agree that most u of wisc students probably choose o stay in wisconsin because if you graduate from there ( or marquette) there is no bar exam necessary. I think most likely you would see more wisc students in minneapolis then chicago...but i would have to imgine there a decent amount of wisc students in chicago
