Depends on what you want to do, exactly. What kind of trial work? Who do you envision paying your salary?
I wouldn't put much stock in the US News specialty rankings.
My very general one-size-fits-all advice is roughly:
Go to the best school you get into (because you don't know what you'll like, and the best school gives you the most options)
Pick a region you think you'd like to live/work, pick a school in that region that has a good reputation there, and get out of law school with as little debt as possible (also gives you options, but in a slightly different way)
If you know specifically what kind of trial work you want to do, I'd be more specific in my recommendations. But you don't seem one hundred percent wedded to doing it, so that's also food for thought.
Also, I am a 2L who enjoys talking out of my ass. Caveat emptor.
