Other: Apparently I have improved my interviewing skills since OCI lat year.
SA: Mid-sized firm, secondary market (maybe tertiary market)
D.Ct. Applications: about 20
Circuit applications: 3
State court applications: 29
Interviews: 2 state court, 1 circuit court, 1 D.Ct (though it might be worth noting that I accepted my offers before many courts made decisions)
Offers: 1 State Sup. Ct. (2013-14), 1 Circuit Ct. (2014-2015). Both accepted (obviously).
Did you have profs making calls for you? If so, how many/are they particularly well-known or connected?
I had a recommendation from a federal district court judge and also from a very well known prof who is personal friends with the COA judge who hired me. I'm sure both helped a lot, but I am still pretty stunned.
