Where is the easiest place to land a federal clerkship. I have awful grades. Tier 2. Can I get one?

Nope.

Well, possibly a magistrate clerkship. Clerkships are very personal, consult your school's career services office.

...no.

And my personal, I meant that individual judges have individual preferences. The fast majority of federal district court and federal court of appeals judges won't look at somebody near median at a T2. But there may be some that do. And magistrate judges often draw from different pools.

If you really want to clerk, it may be possible at the state level.

You're an uninformed idiot, then.

I'd rather be a flame.

Edit: Based on your subsequent posts, I'm calling idiot AND flame.
