When I was choosing a law school, the general wisdom on TLS was for me to go to loyola (LA) with no scholly over WUSTL with a guaranteed 25k a year scholly. I have yet to see if they were right, but so far I'm glad i didn't follow the advice.
TLS didn't tell you to go to Loyola at sticker over WUSTL at scholarship. You followed their advice exactly by going to WUSTL. It told you, in paraphrase: Loyola is bad for LA. WUSTL might give you even worse odds at LA, but a better chance at a job overall.
So your question was:
no money from Loyola, and 70k from WUSTL. However, i want to eventually work in LA.
The advice you got on the first page was:
Try negotiating with Loyola? Neither of those are great options for LA.
Could you deal with the midwest? If so, go to WUSTL. If not, retake and get into USC or UCLA.
Clearly OP already has a high LSAT otherwise he wouldn't have gotten $$ at WUSTL so not sure retake is TCR here. Try to get $ at Loyola otherwise you have a very hard and personal choice ahead of you. If you have an unwavering dedication to LA, I would prolly go Loyola unless you have connections that can get you back from StL.
Retake/reapply seems like a better option considering 1 point higher could net you something like UVa/NU/GULC (assuming work exp for NU) or any of the other splitter friendly schools.
Don't go to WUSTL if you want to practice in LA. I would reapply and apply to all the top 30 Cali schools.
Never, ever pay sticker for Loyola.
Lots of unemployed Loyola grads in LA. Wustl is the better option given cost and overall quality of institution.
