Concord is the most expensive--their tuition is available online (in fact, I'm not aware of any CA DL JD school that does not post tuition).
Taft is more reasonable and is (also) DETC accredited which should mean it is a nationally recognized degree (not for Bar purposes, but as an education degree). It also has federal financial aid possibilities like most "real" colleges. Many employers that reimburse require "accredited" degrees, which DETC should meet that purpose.
NWCU is probably the oldest and arguably most successful at producing lawyers over the years. It is not DETC accredited, but offers the cheapest tuition for a school that continually produces lawyers.
Oak Brooke probably has the highest FYLSX and GBX pass rates and very reasonable tuition, if you can maintain the moral standards.
Good luck. Please keep us posted as to what you decide. Someday I may make the same decision you do!
