Should I reapply?

Should I go to an ex poly university or reapply next year and face the tuition fee hike?

I didn’t get the grades I needed to get into the Russell group University I applied to. Through clearing I managed to get a position in another university, but it is one that is an ex poly. I worry if I take this place, I will lose the opportunity to work in a top law firm, on the other hand, if I don’t take the position and apply again next year, I will face paying £9k per year for my degree. What should I do?
