That counts against SH in a big way.
OP, since I agree that Fordham, BLS and Cardozo are not any better, unless you can get into Columbia/NYU or another top school, take the Rutgers scholarship. Mostly because if you lose that scholarship you are not screwed, whereas if you lose the SHU scholarship, you are.
However, be willing to stay in Jersey because there is much more of a chance you will get a job there then NYC. The other advantage to going to NJ schools is state trial clerkships after graduation. They are not Article III or anything super prestigious, but almost everyone who does one is able to get some type of FT small firm work (not doc review/contract work).
FWIW, like one of the posters above, I also go to the other Rutgers. I do agree that if you think you have a shot at getting your numbers into CLS/NYU/Penn/Cornell range, you should re-take and re-apply. But you are right that it's useless to go to IU-B or UGA or UNC for New York and that Cardozo/BLS/Fordham are not worth the $$$$$.
