Congrats on the acceptance, Seattlegirl, at Seattle U. I have been obsessively checking out my status checker and the decision is still pending. I do not know where I would go if I got accepted U of Oregon, Lewis and Clark, or Seattle U. I suppose I would have to tour the area to see which one I like best.
As a native Seattlite who has applied to Seattle U and Lewis & Clark, my advice would definitely be to go for Seattle U. If you know you're going to practice in the Seattle market, you really can't do better than SU. Everyone in the city knows the program and thinks the world of it (especially the legal writing program), and it's the poorly kept secret that much of Seattle's legal community thinks the program at SU is superior to the one at UW, despite the rankings disparity. Plus, SU has a huge alumni network in the city (about 80% of their grads stay in Seattle), and with only two law schools it's a much less crowded job market than Boston, D.C., New York, San Francisco. I personally like Lewis & Clark better (I loooove their law school building), but I'll probably go to Seattle U. If you do well there you'll have great job prospects in Washington state.
