Anyways, will someone who worked at, say, Cravath, have demonstrably better exit options than someone coming from a good, but obviously not as traditionally well known firm in Atl/Hou/Dal? I know there are plenty of other factors at play in many of these situations, but would a plan such as mine ultimately damage my chances at finding a good in-house job after Biglaw? This may be a dumb question, but I genuinely have no idea so it would be interesting to get some opinions.

But, it also depends on practice area, job responsibilities, connections, and some luck. All things equal, obviously a commercial litigator from Skadden will beat out the same from a lower V100 firm. But, if the Skadden associate hasn't gone beyond doc review and the lower ranked associate has motion practice under his/her belt, it gets closer. And, if you're at a firm that's well-known for a niche practice (say, advertising for example) then the firms overall prestige becomes less important.
This. It's a qualitative, totality of the circumstances analysis, not a mechanical arithmetic exercise.
