IRRX, it seems you enjoy provocation and antagonism.

Re: How strong is regional preference in the Pacific Northwest?

The Top100-ranked schools in PacNW are: University of Washington (27), University of Oregon (70), Lewis & Clark (77) and Seattle (93).

Obviously, UW is going to carry the most firepower within the region. But, if unable to get into UW, are there schools outside the region ranked between 70 and 27 that carry enough of a reputation to overcome the regional law school preference of employers?

In other words: if UW doesn't work out, is it better to step down in rank to the 70s to stay in the region, or would it be possible to find another school with a better rank as well as the ability to get in the door?

I would say no, just from looking at the backgrounds of partners and associates at Seattle law firms. It's pretty much all T14 and local grads. Also most firms do OCI at T14 + UW + sometimes SU in Seattle.
