for your own safety, stay out of T3. You'll thank yourself later. However, Santa Clara is an awesome option if you want to work in Silicon Valley. Everyone in that area knows the school. If you want to work anywhere else, not so much.
The more I ask around, the more I find out that lawyers (especially in biglaw and high-profile PI jobs) are prestige whores. Do what you need to do to get into a top school, no matter what it's subject area rankings are.
