Put this at the beginning of your .tex file:
%!TEX TS-program = pdflatex
if you want it to be typesetted by PdfLaTeX
%!TEX TS-program = latex
if you wish TeX+DVi to be chosen.
See TeXShop's Help section (“Basic help”/”Alternate typesetting mode”
for more details. The Macros menu and its ”Program” option will
certainly be helpful to you.
