Hi, 

It must be noted that the reputation and the ranking of the schools matter when it comes to employment. Reputation in this terms can within the area you wish to work or among the national league. Ranking on the US News do matter when it is a tool to evaluate the competency of the school at the moment. 

One of the thing which is a vital factor is a financial aid. If you graduate from the top schools with a huge of debt, you will take years to repay them off. Whilst, it is a bet, if you got into T14 schools. Thus, it is worth which will not take you so long to clear your debt.

Just go to any schools which offer you an attractive financial aids while the ranking should be in the middle of 50-60. This is my best suggestion that I can give you. Don’t forget that sometimes, you may wish to take a bar exam so that might cost you more time and preparation cost in the future and you do not want to bear a huge burden after your JD graduation.
