Ya they will. Trust me. One of the judges in my chambers did this volunteer thing. I know, first hand, that the pulled stack was ALL t10 t10% (probably better).
This past cycle, in fact, a judge in this district offered a volunteer position for which we received 300+ applications. The stack of 15 candidates who made it past the eyeball test were ALL t10 top10% types, almost ALL law review.
