Can anyone give me advice on choosing between these two law schools. Any advice would be great.

It really depends on where you want to end up. They are both regional schools. SU is probably the better overall school, despite the rankings. And being in Seattle will give you many more opportunities for 1l and 2l internship/externship opportunities (Eugene is pretty much just a college town).

If you want to stay in Oregon, however, UO will probably serve you better.

SU is a good choice, but some other rankings to consider:

Oregon is ranked fifth in the nation for best technology resources in law schools, and sixth for number of judicial clerks on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, behind Yale, Harvard, Stanford, Boalt, and UCLA. Its also got the 50th most frequently cited law review.
