I was born and raised in Albany and the surrounding area. I attended law school in the State of Washington, practiced for a short time in Albany and now practice in Seattle. There is no comparison between the cities. Albany is a government town (I worked as a state government attorney), and unless you are enamored with government work or love staid upstate New York, I would not advise attending Albany Law School. There is simply not a lot of opportunity in upstate New York, and I imagine finding a job in private practice after graduating from Albany Law will be difficult in the upstate area.
Seattle is a beautiful port city, surrounded by water with a progressive culture. Although the economy is poor now, it is better than most of the country. Seattle U will not travel well, but it is respected in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle U has a very large alumni base in Seattle, the law school is minutes from the downtown financial district and many Seattle firms contain Seattle U grads. The local legal market is presently poor, but being a graduate of Seattle U will not be a detriment. I currently work in a mid-sized firm (approximately 30 attorneys), and a majority of the attorneys are Seattle U grads.
You need to spend the money and visit Albany and Seattle. The choice will be obvious after you explore the areas.
