District clerkship, maybe slightly unusual, but I assume that's because of self-selection and not because a District clerkship in any way limits your RX opportunities. I definitely wouldn't call it "abnormal," and I've seen a number of District clerks in various RX shops. (With SDNY being significantly overrepresented, but that kind of speaks for itself)
Granted, if you always planned on going into RX it probably would have made more sense (and been more useful as a practical matter) to target DE/SDNY BK clerkships, but really the important thing is that you can sell your interest in RX.
That said, you should be prepared to answer questions about why you did a District clerkship instead of a BK clerkship or just the CoA if you always planned on RX. Not as a gotcha, but as a genuine question.
