I was accepted to UT-Knoxville and right now I'm in the process of deciding between there and W&M. From what I've seen (statistics and all that stuff) UT is more of a regional school. Most graduates practice within the state of Tennessee (Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville) and it looks as if they have strong placement in Atlanta firms. While it's not impossible to get a firm job outside of those areas, it may be a bit more difficult to get a job in D.C. or New York. Overall I've heard it's a great school. I'm facing the same dilemma as you though, deciding if UT is the best for my career goals.
