This is tougher for me because Stanford's my dream school and I don't think I'd fit in all that well at Chicago based on the reputation it has, but I wouldn't be able to turn the money down, and don't think you should either. Enjoy graduating debt-free I say.

Stanford is not 200k (or 250k+ /w interest) better than Chicago.

Find out how much aid @ Stanford first - word has it they are decently generous with need-based.

This horse not dead enough? It's a personal choice that you can't get meaningful advice on without divulging more information than is sensible to Internet strangers.

Unless someone else is going to fork the bill, you should go to chicago.
To come out of a top law school with virtually no debt will give you a much better opportunity to do whatever you want.

How exactly do you imagine yourself becoming a viable candidate for political office, even at the state level?

If the answer is that you will somehow curtail the system and advance purely through connections, you're going to be disappointed. If you have some political experience and understand that you'd have to spend some time in politics before running, then it would be obvious that being debt-free would totally outweigh the "Stanford" name, if that even had any weight.

Frankly, if your plan is to stay in the midwest, Chicago is absolutely the better option, probably even if Stanford were to offer decent money. Politics will be all about building ties, and your time at Stanford will be wasted if you plan on returning to the midwest.
