Many people will not do the same, and all you can do is really just not let it get under your skin. With that said, I really have no knowledge in either market, and if I did not have a preference I would be choosing Loyola if I was ok working in Illinois for the hope of trying to minimize debt. Personally though, I prefer NC over chicago so I would probably choose UNC as long as I had the ties (which you stated you do not). I think UNC's numbers look fairly strong due to the ridiculous number of in state students who ultimately stay in the area. I may be wrong, but I would venture to think that NC is a fairly insular market and being an out of state student there may hurt you.
Yeah, I definitely appreciate that. There is no stipulation on Loyola's scholarship. The cost of living is obviously far cheaper in NC, which is attractive, but I would prefer to work in Chicago.
If i had to choose one in your situation then go to Loyola Chicago. No stip is at least guaranteed money. If NC is as insular as I think it is, it definitely is not worth the extra money. Just realize you may never get a high paying job and you will have to work hard from day 1 to become a lawyer.
That's the thing, nobody's putting a gun to OP's head and saying he has to go to one of these. I wouldn't go to Loyola unless they were paying me. Especially if you don't have ties to Chicago, but in any case, median there and you're likely to be riding the Chicago doc review circuit.
