is it a really ad idea to go to Mayer Brown Chicago?

I have heard pretty bad things in the news like the de-equitization of 45 partners and an impending lawsuit.

If you have other comparable options, choose them.  Otherwise go there.

School/rank?

Sidley and Kirkland would probably be better choices for Chicago.

Mayer is fine. I was deciding between firms and was nervous also. I talked to several former summers, a couple associates, and the career services people at my school (P.Woo,  for A.C.1Ls benefit) -- no one is worried about them. I am going to summer at MB. I'm actually really looking forward to it.
