We're talking about just a few spots in the rankings, and OP wants to stay in Texas. This is pure conjecture here, since I'm not all that familiar with the Texas market, but I can't imagine a Dallas firm is going to prefer UVA grads over UT grads. My guess is that Dallas is probably full of Texas/SMU grads, for the most part. Somebody feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but typically a degree from the state's flagship school (especially a school like Texas) is going to get priority over a school more than 1,000 miles away (unless that school is HYS). Threads like these just show how much sway U.S. News gets in today's law school decision-making. If we were comparing the two at sticker, then maybe UVA could be argued for. But the combination of OP's desire to stay in TX and the scholarship money should make UT the clear winner.
