Chicago (without financial aid) or NW (with 30K scholarship)?

Would love to hear some thoughts. My main concern is regarding the impact on the potential to secure a post LLM associate position in the US.

30K is huge. Plus NW is in the city walking distance from many big and elite law firms. On top of that, NW like Georgetown and Stanford, prepares you for the completive job market while Chicago like Harvard and Yale is more focused in academia. NW is also livelier with good location, library etc. In the recent reports, NW's ranking went up. But these reports are based on the JD program, not LLM. Regarding the job placement for LLM students they maybe the same. The 30K could help you pay for rent and travel costs while looking for jobs so NW it is.
