Another Clerkship Chances Thread

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jan 24, 2012 9:25 pm

Beat to death I know but I appreciate any tips on how to improve my chances.

School: CCN
Rank: Probably 30% after this semester. Will 2nd semester of 2L grades even be out by when most judges consider apps?
Journal: Secondary, Articles Editor
Probable Publication of my Article
2L SA in V25
2 Good recommenders, 1 Mediocre

I'm guessing CoA is out, but is that true for SDNY, EDNY, CDCA etc.? What should I focus on to improve my chances? Thanks for any help.

Thanks alot for your quick reply and confidence booster. Could you give a rough estimate as to what would be a class rank that would give a decent shot at those districts? For instance if I pulled a miracle 2nd Semester and moved up to top 15-20%? Or is it really >10% for those slots?

I'll definitely be applying broadly regardless, so thank you.
