True. This particular judge had just caught my eye from the beginning, so it'll be tough to turn down. The first is a great opportunity, though, that I'm really looking forward to.
Just a general suggestion for those of you just now sending out letters to judges: I'd advise you to stick to positions you'd really want. I lucked out. I sent letters to the handful of federal judges in town as well as the state supreme court justices. Both of my offers are from federal judges. I'm glad I didn't receive any interest from the state supreme court justices because I quickly realized that I would prefer working for a federal judge. It's a tricky balance because you don't want to miss opportunities, but you also need to be prepared to accept your first offer. This applies to cities you're considering as well as types of judges. If you know you prefer one city over another, seek out those positions first.
...and be sure to have a good resume and cover letter so that your narrow focus still gives rise to offers.
