It varies by office and location. The only thing you can do is look around in Vault and Infirmation, talk to alumni and find out about billable hours requirements. You can also ask your professors.

2. I think that each one of us has this dilemma, no matter what our actual LSAT score. No matter where you're at -- 155, 165, 170, whatever... you'll have that choice to factor in: where do you fall in the 25/75 reported LSAT numbers? Did you choose a college where you're at the lower end, or the higher end? Did it make a difference? That was my question - is my dilemma a false one? Does it make a difference?
I didn't have this dilemma either. For undergrad, I chose a college where I was on the higher end of test results. It didn't make a difference at all.
I ended up at a law school where I'm at the higher end. But I didn't choose my school because of that -- I chose it because I like the atmosphere. This school hadn't even been high on my radar until I got my acceptance letter. After being accepted, I visited the school and liked it so much that I decided to attend. I knew I could spend three years there relatively happily. (And indeed, I've been happy with it so far.) My classmates are brilliant, our section got along marvelously and I've made great friends, and the professors are great.
The fact that I have statistics on the higher end of the class has made no difference at all.
Your dilemma is a false one.
