By "traditional" top schools, I mean rough internal rankings employers have in their minds about what schools stand where. NOT USNews.
If I were the OP, I would visit the two schools and look at their course catalogs and try to speak with students there who are focused on patent law. I also suggested that he talk with practicing patent attorneys in Chicago or in his area, if you read my previous post. Blindly clinging to USNews rankings (which are crap), and their even more dubious specialty rankings is a mistake.
Also, if you've been watching the OP's posts, you'd know that he already decided to go to Maryland and not either of these schools.
Vansondon, you aren't even in law school yet, are you? You really have no business giving advice here.
