Have you visited MSU? They do very well in preparing their students to actually work. Their trial prep programs seem very good (their mock courtroom is AWESOME), and their clinical programs are pretty impressive.
I don't really know much about Kent, but I've heard good things. Ultimately, if you don't want biglaw it might be worth taking the money. I certainly wouldn't sign up without visiting. I was there last Friday, and would probably have gone there if not for my Michigan acceptance.
Good luck! I work with many MSU Law students and grads, so if you have any more specific questions, feel free to PM me.
