Two very different choices. Where are you trying to end up? How much will these options cost?

You'll get more responses in the choosing a law school section but Still's questions will be what they ask first....

Thank you for responding promptly
U Miami will cost around 38000 tuition plus living expenses while seton hall will cost around 45000 per year. I am still deciding on the fields I want to practice in but I am more inclined towards tax , corporate, healthcare and immigration fields.
=) hope to hear from you soon

Is Miami 38k tuition per year?

Is retake an option? The job prospects you would get out of these two schools would not justify the amount of money you'll have to pay.

This will be direct (necessarily so) but Seton Hall is definitely out. 45k/year for SH is exorbitant and it struggles to employ its graduates in long-term positions. So definitely do not go there, avoid it like the plague. Where are you from? Also, 38k/year or in total for Miami.

Both options are too expensive in light of their employment stats.

Neither choice is a good choice at those prices. You should really consider taking a year off, retaking the LSAT, and pulling in some $ at these or better schools.

If you don't take our word for it, look up the Valvoline Dean.
