I've been accepted to Hofstra with a $15,000 scholarship, New York Law School with a $15,000 scholarship, and Drexel with a $10,000 scholarship. Additionally, I've been accepted to the University of Miami but with no money. I got wait-listed at Penn State, St. John's and Rutgers-Newark. Hypothetically, if I were to later get rejected from all the schools I'm wait-listed at, which of the remainders would be the best choice??

especially when I've gotten into some alright schools.
If you don't want to take the year off, that's fine, but these are not 'alright' schools...they are plain awful in terms of cost-to-job-prospects (and reputation among lawyers, at least as far as the nyc/philly area goes). By contrast, Rutgers is an 'alright' and you might know the Miami area better than I, but I can tell you nyls/hofstra/drexel are laughed at. Have you even talked to any recent grads/2Ls/3Ls from those schools? Neither is a better choice than the other as they are terrible so just pick which area you'd like to build your life in.
