Desire to work in biglaw (doesn't everyone?) or basically make as much money as possible after graduation.
Would you ever consider attending BU/BC/Fordham at sticker over full tuition at UConn? Or is that crazy?
Depends on where you want to live long term and how risk-averse You are. With that being said, 200k of debt with a 30% chance of BigLaw vs 100k of debt or whatever living expenses at UConn with very low chance of BigLaw...I'd roll the dice but that's just me.

All of this is assuming you want Boston or NY biglaw.
That's my plan...plus possibly retaking the LSAT in Feb. (heard it helps w/negotiating $$) if I find myself confident I can improve my score significantly.
I hope BC doesn't take as long as it did last year to fill us in about merit scholarships, so negotiations can begin early.

I was going to mention that in my negotiation letter.
I have such low odds of getting into Yale I am considering just making my Yale 250 comedy in an attempt to catch someone's eye.
