If your planning on staying in the NY/NJ area, Rutgers isn't a bad option. But if your entire life you have been dreaming of going to W&L I say do it, you only live once and you may regret not going there in the future.
For undergrad I went to the University of Tampa because I only had to pay $2,500/yr in tuition, I was so unhappy there that after one sememster I transferred to Penn State with no scholarship offer at all. It was the best decision I ever made, I was so much happier attending a school I had dreamed of going to and it made my college experience that much better.
That being said, it's not so easy to transfer law schools, so I think you have to make the right decision the first time around and I really think you should follow your heart. You don't want to regret anything in the end.
