Agnes Scott College - Top 50 liberal arts college
Spelman College - #1 rated HBCU
Morehouse College - #3 rated HBCU
I would probably rank Atlanta No. 9.

I'm surprised Raleigh isn't an option...UNC, Duke, NC State, Meredith, Peace, Shaw, NC Central, St. Augustine's - a pretty substantial list.

Northwestern's Law school is in Chicago (just to give more credit to the city proper) and to nitpick It's UIC not U of I Chicago.

Also: Depaul, IIT, Wheaton, Lake Forest...

The Raleigh area. UNC and Duke. I believe they are only 7 miles apart from one another.

Not too shabby, but Harvard and MIT nearly overlap one another.
