While I am about as much of a prestige-driven person as anyone, I think giraffe gave the best advice: forget about the prestige and find a situation that will make you happy. For me, that would mean the State Supreme Court over the Federal District Court becuase I am interested in the more theoretical side of law. But I could turn that down if I really clicked with a District Court Judge, or felt my Supre Court gig would just be busywork. Argue about prestige when you are doing your post-grad clerkship interviews. Right now, just find a job that will fulfill you and remind you why you wanted to be a lawyer.
