You could technically commute, especially your 2nd and 3rd years to increase the debt gap from USC), but it may be a better location for you since it'd be much easier to start networking in the SD area than it would be from Hastings or Davis. I personally enjoyed my UCI visit and I would personally keep it as a viable option if I were in your shoes.
I live in Irvine right now, so it wouldn't be a hard transition, but I'm concerned about riding my education on the star power of one man...what if he leaves? Plus, there is no data for bar passage and employment statistics...I'm definitely holding on to this option, though.
Your education wouldn't be riding on the reputation of one man at all. The entire faculty is hugely accomplished and renowned. Also, you'd have the support of a cooperative, intelligent student body and an Orange County business and legal community that has been fawning over UCI and its students since the school first opened its doors.
