RAing will be more helpful for OCI than doing nothing for the summer from what I've gathered. And if those are your only options, the choice is clear, I wouldn't worry about it. It ranks significantly behind working for a judge or at a firm, though still better than doing nothing law related.
@drdolittle: That's like saying, it's better to have $10 in your pocket than no money when trying to buy a burger. lol...but it is true.
@Omerta: If you've accepted the positions, don't stress about what it will do for you at OCI. backing out would only hurt you so no use in stressing over how it will or won't help you at OCI.
