OP: I definitely understand your situation. While most TLSers tend to bash anything lower than T14 and invoke fear about the legal market, many good lawyers come from a range of schools. Also, the market is NOT going to be this bad in three years - which is why many more people are applying to grad school this year (not sure why TLSers don't get this).
For your situation it seems that the debt is going to be manageable and you're not interested in Big Law which means the ranking of your school is not as significant compared to someone else.
Then again, your educational opportunities, externships, summer placements, are going to be far worse at Regent than any other school. Regent does not seem to be your no. 1 choice, but if you are dead set on a legal career with no other options to move, Regent might be your only choice. Just know what you are getting yourself into and know that going to a school with such a low ranking and reputation, the more work the student needs to put into making opportunities.
Good Luck with December and thank you for your husband's service.
Don't you mean- Ive?
