NYC obviously. Although this isn't that cut and dry w/o more. For most, Skadden will be "easier" than STB because STB is more grade-conscious. If you are above STB's grade floor, however, STB is probably "easier" than Skadden since they have a much bigger class.

Almost every big NYC firm is safer if you have the grades + school combo to have a chance.

Big NYC program = 100+ with many other programs. Big DC program = a few dozen and fewer other programs.
