Median at T25 no LR or journal, transferred from a T2 where I was on LR and top 20% of class. What kinds of clerkships should I be targeting?

State courts. Maybe fed magistrates or other non-AIII clerkships.

None, except maybe state trial.

You might have a chance at state trial and state intermediate appellate, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

ETA: Nothing to lose by applying to magistrates and bankruptcy judges (if you have any bankruptcy chops), but I *really* wouldn't hold my breath for those.
