Not to mention, graduating with no debt is a rare blessing and gives OP the option to do basically whatever he wants, right down to hanging a shingle (if it comes down to that). Biglaw is a lot less likely to happen, but OP is ok with that. I just don't see any good reason why NU is worth $230,000 more to the OP, given the stated goals and circumstances.
OP may have better odds than average and may be free from debt, but it would foolish for anyone attending UH to think can get a job easily. Getting a legal job is hard. Plenty of people with good grades and ties, from local schools and national schools, struggle to find legal employment every year.
