Ah, I see. You can probably get a hefty merit scholarship at Seton Hall which may outweigh the in-state tuition you'd get from Rutgers.
At this point, since you're guaranteed a job and won't have any debt, go to whatever school you feel like. If you're concerned that going to a school outside NJ won't prepare you to practice in NJ as much as an in-state school, don't be. You take the bar for the state you want and the differences in curriculum between states are negligible when considering bar preparation.
Go live in another city for 3 years if you want, explore other parts of the country just for fun. You're in a better position than 99% of law students right now, so enjoy it!

Whichever of RU-N or SHU costs less. Watch out for stipulations on Seton Hall money, which can lead to you losing the scholarship. Id avoid St. John's and Hofstra just in case your job doesnt work out (Im sure it will, its just always good to have contingencies). Good luck!
