Hi -- I will be receiving in state tuition at Illinois. I am undecided about what type of law I want to go into though. I have heard that job prospects in Chicago are fairly similar for U of I grads and Chicago-Kent grads (provided that you do fairly well at Kent). Any additional insight is greatly appreciated!Thanks!
There really isn't much of a difference between these two schools, in my opinion. The quality of the student body really is not that much better at U of I, so I personally think you should take into account where you're getting the better deal financially, as well as other considerations such as which school's overall curriculum and program you prefer. Kent also has the advantage of being located in Chicago, which is nice as far as getting a head start on contacts, clinical experience, and employment opportunities in the city (as well as political/governmental positions down the road). You can definitely get where you want to be from both, though.
Yeh but who would want to live in Chambana as anything other than an undergrad
