I'd say Temple.
1. Both are regional schools. With American, you'd be competing with graduates from a lot of other law schools in the area. And pretty much all of them are higher-ranked than American. With Temple, I believe you'd only be competing with one school ranked above you.
2. I know you said all $$ equal, but cost of living in PA has to be less than DC.

I'd say Temple, but I wouldn't go to either without substantial cash.

Yes. By $$ equal, I meant tuition. Philly's COL is less than DC's so that's a factor to consider as well. I've read that Temple's employment prospects are better so I guess my decision is made. Thanks!

Neither are worth going into substantial debt for.
