Yeah, the SF Federal PD interviewer at OCI said that most of their hires tend to be people who have done clerkships and worked in biglaw for a few years.
Yeah, this is generally the case. However, I understand SD is an exception, which is one reason I was specifically curious about it. Plus, whether a PI employer comes to OCI is probably a good indication of whether they are interested in the school's students.
