If you want to be a prosecutor, option #1. If you want to go to biglaw, option #2 (assuming the pay is similar, if not, take the cash).

When you say multinational corporation, do you mean a law firm? Or are you going to be working in the legal department of a corporation?

Take corporate, then SA 2L at a big firm if possible, and get an externship with a federal agency during 3L if your school has that option.
