If keeping options open is your priority then just go to Yale. Yale gives you a great shot at all the options you mentioned, and as Elston said has the COAP program which protects you in the worst case scenario.
I'm inclined to agree with this. Especially since you mentioned academia.
If you had just said that you wanted firms, then I would have said the Hamilton without a doubt.
