A few quick thoughts:
Both schools have administrations get badmouthed for different reasons (and to different degrees) from what I hear, but you'll no doubt get more personalized attention from Wake Forest. That being said, Wake's career services office has been the target of much ire in the past - but apparently they've changed a lot of things.
The Carolina attitude applies to the law school - I haven't ever talked to anyone who's felt particularly welcomed. You should be happy to have the opportunity to attend their great school. Take it or leave it.
Carolina's alumni network is bigger and stronger. Most people in the NC legal establishment are Carolina grads.
Chapel Hill is infinitely more fun than Winston-Salem, but that may not be a good thing. The kids at Carolina will probably be cooler - but again, that may not be a good thing.
Wake has more money.
Carolina Law is way liberal. Like way. I haven't heard much about Wake Law, doubt it's conservative, but 100% confident it isn't crazy liberal like UNC.
Classes at Wake will be smaller I think, including 1L sections.
