If I can head into Rutgers with a decent scholly, minimizing debt, I feel like I would be better off than going somewhere like W&L or BC with a small scholly or at sticker.
My only other option would be to retake and go to one of my dream schools like UVA or Cornell.
After doing my research, it seems like the only logical thing to do would be to attend Rutgers with a scholly.
I have met a number of smart, enjoyable people with excellent grades from lesser-ranked schools enduring a difficult time (that is sugar coating it). Others from top ranked schools with BL already in their pocket are routinely turning down call-backs/offers. Just saying, making it through LS is only a part of the equation. Perhaps time to rethink.
