Kent does not "do better" in BigLaw. Both Kent and Loyola placed 17% of their respective classes of '18 into BigLaw.
OP should not go to either Kent or Loyola expecting BigLaw. There's an >80% chance they'd miss BigLaw from either school.

Ideally would like to make at least 6 figures but basically my goal is to not do accounting work forever.. trying to do something more meaningful if possible. Only reason I wanted to do tax law is to utilize my accounting knowledge. But even if I take a pay cut to do public interest or something I would like to do that and I have an interest in it. But loans are going to be crazy of course. Total cost to attend Kent is around 160k & I got 45k total from them. Also, I wanted to work Part-Time during but not sure how feasible that is.
You shouldn't go. Don't go to law school unless you want to be a lawyer, which is not the same as not wanting to be an accountant forever. Especially don't go to Kent hoping for a six-figure salary.
