Rankings are largely irrelevant other than perhaps the distinction between T14/T20, top 50, top 100, and the rest.
If you want to be in Oregon, go to Lewis & Clark. If you want to be in Wisconsin, go to UW. It's that simple. Neither are going to travel well and you'll likely be stuck in those markets.
In the grand scheme of law school, $9k is nothing. Not having to pay rent in Oregon is a huge advantage, IMO, but if you just can't see yourself practicing there, don't do it.
