People in the Twin Cities who are in a position to hire graduates don't care about the U.S. News rankings. WM grads will always hire WM grads and Hamline grads will always hire Hamline grads. There are way more WM grads in positions to hire, so they have that advantage. Additionally, anyone else in the Twin Cities who is in a position to hire, will "generally" prefer WM grads to Hamline ones, based purely on name recognition and nothing else.
If money and everything else is equal, I would say go to WM.
