Seems like the professor should have canceled class today. Does anyone suffer through that class unless they plan on clerking?

I don't think so. Some already have clerkships but some are 2Ls...who knows.

So in great anticipation of today, I went out last night, got drunk, and lost my phone. I don't think I missed any phone calls from this morning? Anyway, now I'm getting a barrage of messages from my carrier, telling me who knows, each one making my heart skip a beat. And my girlfriend just called me to make sure my phone's working. Worst day to lose your phone ever.

From the lack of activity on here I would assume most judges are actually waiting until noon.

LOL. Well played man. I did the exact same thing. And the bar I was at doesn't open until 5. Fuck it, didn't send out that many apps anyways.

Just finished speaking to all of my 100+ judges. I'll be clerking everywhere for the next two years. You guys can go home now.

Just got a call from DNJ and got what I think was the first slot available (he's not interviewing until Thursday afternoon, I think). Guess I was wrong!

I got one so far for Thursday afternoon...pretty sure the clerk said that the Judge was not interviewing until the afternoon. I applied to several other judges in the same courthouse. Is it to early to make parlay calls?
