We do need to constantly remind 0L's of this fact. You don't get to assume employment numbers apply equally everywhere. "I'm going to Penn because it places great in biglaw. Oh and I won't work in NYC, DC, or Chicago. I want Portland or Miami" means you get disqualified from law school.
It is a hard choice, don't discount it. If you are marginal for your market, yea, you'd be stupid not to bid NYC. But a lot of people are like Top third. That gets you Chicago like 80% of the time. But it gets you NYC 95%.
