If you want to practice in CA, I would definitely go to Southwestern.

I know of several Hofstra grads who have gone on to do amazing things. One example that comes to mind is the Nassau County DA, who graduated from Hofstra and eventually became a chief Assistant US Attorney in Philly, one of the most competitive jobs in the country to get. Hofstra, in my opinion is not only a better school, but has significantly higher job prospects.
