In Tableau Prep, when the schema or database is specified in the original database connection dialog, AND then the schema is changed in the Tableau Prep interface, AND both schemas have tables with the exact same name, THEN the table added to the flow will come from the schema specified in the original database connection dialog.

Do not specify the schema or database in the connection dialog.

Note, if the end goal is to use both tables with the same name from the two schemas, then create two connections, one to each schema. And then drag each table from the corresponding connection.
