Rutgers-Newark and Seton Hall offer the exact same prospects as Rutgers-Camden. Rutgers-Newark costs the same ($24k). Seton Hall charges a whopping $45k/year for tuition. I'd say in comparison to the competition, the Rutgers-Camden cost is NOT expensive for in-state. Besides CUNY and one of the mountain west schools (I think Montana?), I'm pretty sure no other state school is under $20k/year.
All of the Florida state schools.
Last I heard during my cycle they were raising in-state tuition, but maybe that changed and they're still cheap.
Now, of the schools that charge under $20k/year, how difficult is it to get residency? At both Rutgers schools, the only thing you need to get residency is sign a lease for the upcoming year. So no one is paying OOS tuition 1L year. Whereas at UF/FSU/UGA/UB, I'd bet half of the student population is paying OOS rates 1L year. (Not the I recommend going to any of these schools as a OOS student -- the exact opposite -- but it's still a point).
