hastings places pretty well in LA... I would say try and go as high up as you can get because you never know what you might want to do later in life (teach, clerk, etc)

Even if you did want to work in Chicago after graduation, you should still work with the judge in scenario 2 for teh reasons stated above.  Assuming you have pretty decent grades (since you will be working for a judge), a lot of big Chicago firms recruit at UIUC so you shouldn't worry!

I am sure big law can change.  It is going to take more than a letter from over 100 students from the top schools.  A majority of the students from the top schools would not only have to write a letter, but personally but pressure on big law through delays in acceptances of offers and other direct approaches and frankly, not to many young people are willing to sacrifice a chance at a 6 figure job.  I am sure most associates wouldn't mind taking a 20k pay cut in exchange for working 250 billable hours less.  Perhaps firms could have a two track payment system.   One system would pay the current rates at big law, with the standard 2000+ billables requirement, and a second junior track at 1800 billable hours and 20k less than than the market rate. Just a thought

Law firms are just risk averse, so getting them to change won't be easy, but was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

ummm... I don't think Germany bombed pearl harbor.  I could be wrong though ::)
