As it stands I have a full ride at Seton Hall (top 50% stip) Also cost of living is minimal as
housing is with family, so barely even a factor.

Recently admitted off the waitlist @ BC with 20k/year (2.0 stip)
COA: ~120k

About me:
-All connections in NJ (including some NJ firms, judges, etc.)
-Not sure what kind of law I'm looking at, but no particular BigLaw interest
-Debt averse

Right now I'm committed to Seton Hall, is there any reason I should consider spending that much for BC?


I don't know too much about how different schools are, but maybe you could leverage your full ride to Seton Hall to try and get more money out of BC? If nothing changed though, I guess Seton Hall would be your best bet, if you have NJ connects? I'm an NJ resident and I've never given Seton Hall much of a look though, I just heard it was way expensive (obviously not an issue here).

Might I ask your numbers?

Also did you try to use your bc money to negotiate the stips on the seton hall one?

Any real reason you can't retake? If you can squeeze a few more points out of the LSAT, you could open up a lot of options.

I'm not attached to a particular area, but definitely Mid Altantic/New England/East Coast more generally. DC if it so happens, but not my main plan by any means.
So you would be fine with NJ?

Yep!
Then I say take the full ride. The stips kinda stink but I think it's the better deal here.
