2) From your experiences (and you may not apply) what kind of scholarship outside of the merit based ones that were given and the diversity (not thinking im going to be in the running for that one) are available? How likely is FAFSA or financial need based scholarship going to be?
You'll get the $12k, 0% chance at anything else.

I could probably expect close to full ride there, and I'm just not sure I want to have 25,000 in debt just to go to OSU (even though I love it here)
You'll most likely lose any $$$ you get at Akron, and its not a very good law school. Any job you could get from Akron (you mentioned connections) you would definitely be able to get from OSU, plus if you decide you don't want to be in Akron or you want to move later on down the line, you don't have that Akron albatross hanging around your neck.
