I'm not entirely set on a particular kind of law.
I'm from Seattle and would like to live there. But, I'm not entirely sure that I want to get locked into the Northwest, which makes BU seem more appealing if I want to work on the East Coast.

A lot of times, if you have ties to an area, that's a reason to justify going elsewhere, because you can always say "It was fine being away from school but I really want to come back", or whatnot, but any sentence on TLS has "PNW market" in it, it also has the words "insular as hell" in it.
Unfortunately, you've gotta choose now. I'd say UW. My guess is people are a lot less likely to go to school and work near home, and then say later in life "I wish I could work somewhere else" than they are to go to school and work far away from home, and then say "I wish I could get back".
