I'm in a very similar situation. I can't decide if I'll have more flexibility with no debt and a Duquesne degree or a good bit of debt and a degree from Wake. My girlfriend is also from N.C. her family is in Charlotte, barely an hour from Wake.
Wake had a lot of things that I really liked when I visited. For starters, I did my undergrad at South Carolina, so I went to school in a city...a small city, but a city nonetheless, and I kind of wanted to go to law school on a smaller campus that was separate from the surrounding town/city. I really liked that about Wake. Plus, the campus is beautiful and the law school's library is awesome. I'm also thinking pretty strongly about litigation after law school, and Wake has a great litigation clinic. My gf and I also have some friends in Winston-Salem.
On the other hand, Duquesne is free and my sister and her family live just outside Pittsburgh. While it would be an experience to live in Pittsburgh for 3 years, I don't think I want to be there after law school, and I'm worried of a Duquesne degree will let me get back to the Southeast.
