If you must choose between them, I would go to Widener if you plan to look for work in NY/PA. More alums in the area, easier to network for jobs in a location when you are already in a location.
Still, I would highly recommend retaking the LSAT and trying to get into either Temple or one of the Rutgers schools. Go to the school you can get in-state tuition at.
This is 100% credited.
Gruitza, I know you don't want to hear it, but they are right to give you this advice to at least consider. For many people, either school is a bad choice. At the very least, I think you should consider if you could do part-time to avoid crushing debt. There's a reason why lawyers are much more likely to be depressed than many, if not most careers...
I had an attorney once tell me when I was applying to schools that whatever I do, don't go to Widener. He said the first thing that law firms look at when you apply is where you go to school. Everything else is secondary.
Now, I'm not a law school snob like many, and I have nothing against the school. For some, it's a great opportunity. For many, though, it is not. You need to access what types of jobs you want, and whether it is worth going into (I'm assuming) massive debt to practice law. Only you can answer that, but take a look around law firm websites in the Harrisburg area. You are not going to find many Widener law grads making partner, if I recall correctly when I was researching this.
I retook the LSAT, did much better, and went to a different school. If that's a reasonable possibility (e.g., if you knew you could study harder and do better), I'd consider that.
And, if you don't want to risk being "outted," I'd get rid of where your dad went to school, and where you're considering. To be honest, I might know your father...that shows you how small of a world it is!
