There are so many better firms in Chicago, especially for L&E. JL’s Chicago office does not have a good reputation.

Look at Seyfarth - way better L&E practice, better attorneys, better pay, etc. Also, Littler, Ogletree, FP, Constangy, among many others

uh oh, can you elaborate why JL in Chgo does not have a good reputation? I would like to pursue L&E and there is an opening there but obviously if its not a good reputation, its not worth the risk for me.

I just had a quick question, so I took the gre and got a good score (329), and want to apply this fall to go to b-school next year.

I am thinking about quitting my job next month and traveling for a couple months and then would apply for school in the fall. Would that be something that is looked down upon from the admission officers point of view since I would technically be unemployed when I’m applying or is it fine if I talk about traveling and the international experience etc?
