I don't think there is much of a difference. They are all regional/super-regional. The latter may afford some better clerkship prospects, but not significantly so to warrant a distinct category.
Looking at Avvo, UT Austin places more people outside Texas than Berkley places out of California, but they're a T10 school. Not all T14 schools really look all that national to me. Many of them have alumni clustered up in a handful of states.
