So the WUSTL scholly is about the same as W&L? I don't know a ton about W&L, but I think this is almost a toss up. Obviously W&L has a "homecourt" advantage, but I don't know how much. WUSTL has been working very hard at placing in the DC market, with a clinic program out there and a partnership with the Brookings Institute.
Also keep in mind that they are very different cities and schools. What type of atmosphere are you looking for? It sounds like W&L has a real lack of bars and things to do. WUSTL is also a much bigger school, so that is something to consider as well.
This is a tough call. I don't know enough about W&L to give you advice either way. I do think WUSTL gives you a much better shot at a job, but W&L likely places better on the east coast.
