sorry bro but Wilmer DC is pretty much impossible unless you are Kent/Law Review.....its one of the toughest DC firms to get for most law review folks
you need serious DC connections to even stand a chance with just a B+
Hey I'm on Law Review at CLS and I can't tell you how many LR folks with good grades who struck of the top DC firms the last couple of years. And by top DC firms I'm only talking about W&C, Covington, and Wilmer.
Here's a little trivia to chew on. CLS only sent one person to Wilmer DC last year and he's going to be clerking for Kozinski this year. In 2010, CLS only had one person at Wilmer DC once again and he's clerking for Kavanaugh this year and will be clerking for Scalia next year.
Unless you have serious DC/fed gov connections, you need to be close to Kent and on Law Review to get the tippy top DC firms (i.e W&C, Wilmer, & Covington). The only way to get W&C/Covington/Wilmer without being Kent/LR is to have worked on the Hill for many years for example and have serious reasons for wanting to be in DC.
Just having good grades (i.e. Stone/LR) is NOT enough.
