Pretty credited. I went after NYC and the clerks made it sound like they were absolutely flooded with applications from students.
Yeah, I asked an NYC clerk for a magistrate judge, not even a fed district judge, and he said they got like 600 applications.
With the number of law schools in NY, and the number of students who want to go to NY for the summer, you can see how fast it adds up. Columbia, NYU, Cornell, Fordham, Cardozo, Brooklyn, Hofstra, St. Johns, Pace, Tauro, CUNY, Seton Hall, Rutgers-Newark, Albany, New York Law School, and those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head. No wonder all my NY applications vanished into a black hole.
