It was probably my cover letter where I went on and on about how bad I was in moot court, and how the clinic could help me improve. But what I don't get, about that story, is that it's technologically impossible, via OSCAR, to apply for a filled spot. So how did Ambro get all these apps? And what is it about Ambro, by the way, that makes him such a hot judge to apply to, such that he can fill spots 2 years ahead of time? I've worked at the Third Circuit, and Ambro's definitely one of the stand-outs, but he trails Scirica and Barry as a feeder, and I'd contend he trails a few of them as judges as well. He definitely isn't, at the least, in a class above Scirica, Smith, Rendell, Jordan, Barry - maybe he's a better judge than Hardiman or Fuentes or Greenaway (who I think has a really bright future ahead of him), but not dramatically so.
He was still accepting applications up until mid-August if I'm not mistaken. So there were probably several paper applications, at least, that went out. And if people finalized before he closed the application, I assume he still gets them?
Not everyone wants a feeder.
