I will say that among older NJ lawyers, R-N still is viewed as head and shoulders above Seton Hall. SH has always been known for lax admissions standards and mediocrity. SH is a "country club" type private school for the offspring of wealthy white people. It's known for an "Alex P. Keaton" type of annoying yuppie, like this idiot alum who landed in Federal prison recently:

He's a perfect example of the sort of "short bus" types that end up at SH. Mostly spoiled, snotty white boys who try and convince themselves that SH is a "real" law school (which of course it isn't and never will be). Also whatever small Biglaw placement SH has likely comes from nepotism - again, a lot of VERY rich kids go here, and even with their seriously limited skills/intelligence, a family member may have the juice to get them something decent.
So tell us how you really feel.
