I asked this same thing and a couple of well respected posters here said no. I think that might be as good of info as you're gonna get. Even the older posters around here are still in BigLaw (if that's where they began), so there's just not much consensus.
If anything I think HLS would help you enter non-law fields post BigLaw. Some have also argued that H is an advantage for Bigfed stuff, but that might be outside the scope of what you're asking.
ETA just to clarify, you don't have to take loans for living expenses? Even if not, your numbers in the poll seem a little low.
