Pretty much this. The rational side of me knows nothing is coming but I'm excited nonetheless.

I'm right there with you. I only applied to 6 judges. I really, really want one judge (who has only 1 position), but those odds are so incredibly small that I am not getting my hopes up. Best of luck to everyone.

Agreed on getting excited but worried about not hearing anything. Good luck to everybody. Looking forward to celebrating anyone's success.

I wish everyone good luck, and hopefully one of the 14 judges I applied to will contact me tomorrow. My iPhone will be strapped to my hand

I expect nothing. If I get anything, I will literally weep.

I might be the most hail mary candidate on this thread but my theory is, if you don't play, you can't win. And besides hours of my life spent uploading docs to OSCAR (and a few sheets of resume paper), it didn't cost me a dime.

T2, Top 25%, EIC of secondary
Applied to 60 district and magistrates in cities I have ties to

I haven't refreshed TLS this much since April of 0L.

Clerkship Scramble used to have a list of judges ranked by feeder status. Out of curiosity, has anyone updated it over the last year? There's been some debate at my school about how things have changed over the last couple years.

They haven't really changed much... And, if you're not SCOTUS clerk material, a feeder won't help you, and if you're SCOTUS clerk material, going to a less frequent feeder isn't going to break you.

Griffith's past two classes killed it. Other than that, negligible differences.

When do the truly on-plan judges (i.e. waiting until tomorrow) start calling? I hear it all happens pretty quickly.
