Clerking in the middle of nowhere... thoughts? Does the prestige outweigh?

I don't know if that map is behind a password for you, but Wyoming got 1,916 online apps for its four clerkship openings last year and Nebraska for 291 for its one opening. Some are slightly better, Kansas at 582 for three and Oklahoma at 1,237 for seven, but others are worse, like Arkansas at 964 for one and North Dakota at 815 for three. I'm sure the COA/DC/M/Bankr. distinction accounts for a lot of the variation, but just remember, that's only the online numbers. That doesn't include any paper apps.

I think you'll do pretty good no matter where you clerk if you're doing Fed COA.

If you can get it, do it. But it's only slightly less difficult (think 1/250 apps instead of 1/750 apps).

Virgin Islands. No one would fault you for that.
