Hofstra is a toilet and you'd be lucky to get a job anywhere let alone in SoCal. Take it off your list.
FSU is a solid school but the degree won't carry too far from Florida. If SoCal is where you want to go, FSU makes no sense.
I would take UCI over Southwestern in a heartbeat. I assume the free tuition deal applies to you? So for one, it's FREE! Also, the "UC" brand does pull a little weight, I certainly wouldn't worry about it getting accredited because it will. And, it seems like the school is putting together a badass faculty (read the leiter reports--they've been pillaging top scholars from good schools lately and CHEMERINSKY!! is the f-in dean). I would be very suprised if UCI debuted at anything less than top 100 (top 50 wouldn't surprise me one bit) in the rankings. Also, career services etc. will probably go out of their way to get people great jobs to build the schools reputation. You might take a hit because there is no alumni network but that's that.
Finally I see UA on your list, I don't know if you've already decided against it or you're still waiting for an acceptance but let me know if you have any q's about the school--I'm there right now.
