Either way. Uva is the right choice.

Not really. That's typically only the case if you want to be an AUSA in a competitive district (SDNY, NDCA, etc.)

It happens in other agencies too, like SEC, as long as there's some practice area that both biglaw and the feds work in.

Definitely agree with the bolded.
