Seems like it would be easier to go Chicago --> NYC than the other way around these days. Kind of counter intuitive. Both of those firms are legit in NYC too, wonder if you could do a summer in Chicago office and then go to either of their NYC offices full time if you got an offer (though I'm guessing that if you have insta-offers from Mayer and Sidley you probably have many NYC v10's going after your services).
I didn't ask Mayer or Sidley, but other firms seemed open to splitting the summer between their NYC and Chicago offices provided the hiring committees in both places approved.
