You really should give more information about yourself, but just look at these employment statistics. You'd have to be guaranteed a job now before you could even think about setting foot at Oregon. Honestly, South Carolina's numbers aren't bad.

Go to whichever school is closer to where you want to practice. It doesn't make any sense to go to South Carolina to practice on the west coast and it doesn't make any sense to go to Oregon to practice on the east coast.

Do this if you want advice. It's impossible to give good advice without more information.

Also, did you draw these schools out of a hat?

I am seriously considering South Carolina as well with, what seems like, a similar scholarship offer. I'm curious to see what others have to say

Neither because you don't understand how legal hiring works if you think you can get a job anywhere but in South Carolina or Oregon from these two schools

One, SC's economy is in the dump (yes, everywhere sucks right now, but the carolinas have been especially hit hard). Second, you're from the west coast...going to south carolina in their extremely parochial environment is going to be a really difficult task.

not really advocating oregon either without more details, but it seems to make more sense than SC.

If you want to work in Oregon, pick Oregon.
If you want to work in South Carolina, pick South Carolina.

If you want to work somewhere else, retake and reapply to a school in that region.

It's going to be very hard to get a job in SC w/o ties. +1 to what deadpanic said. That place is crazy.

I don't know anything about Oregon.

Neither - apply for jobs. Get a three year head start on some shitty career without 60K debt because that's better than 60K debt plus shitty career.

SC is way insular. I don't think you should go there.

Retake and go to a school in Utah for freesies or a T14. Or get a job in the place you want to end up, work for a couple years to establish ties and then go to the best regional school in that region. Again, for freesies.

If you go to U of O and aren't from Oregon, you are not going to get a job in Oregon. As far as I can tell, getting a decent attorney job in Oregon without ties requires you coming from T14/killing it at L&C.
