Working through the specifics mentally now. A big reason we've released a beta is to see how people use it and what questions they ask.
Generally, you start by seeing who places in the state by merely being on the report. If a school is not on the report, and you want to work in California, then you probably do not want to attend that school. (One exception is if a school did not provide enough public data to make it on. Very few of these schools, though. 15 schools or so are missing from 1 state report.)
Then you need to think about what you want out of your degree. Are you interested in a big firm? Small law? Public service? Starting a legal career at all?
What schools can meet those needs? What is it going to cost me to attend there? Can I get in?
