all other factors aside, just on the name of the school, where would you go?

Penn State

I really, really hope you're not basing your decision on that!  :)

Neither name is going to carry you outside of NJ and PA. Deciding based on the name is a terrible idea.

I'd go to the school that's cheaper. Can you get in-state tuition at R-C? If so go there.

From what I remember, Penn State doesn't offer an in-state tuition discount to anyone (even PA residents) and is essentially run like a private law school.

Yes, the OP should go to the cheaper school, unless the OP definitely prefers to live in one state over another (or wants to live near Philly; R-C actually might have more pull there than PSU).

You're correct.

Did I say I was deciding based on the name? no. It's a simple question.

Penn State, but I am probably the most biased poster here on the subject as I went to PSU for undergrad and am going back for Law School.

No need to get snappy!  I'm honestly just looking out for your best interests.  I'd venture that most people don't ask that question merely out of curiosity, in my experience.
