School range: T30
Rank: Top 15% as of last year (though I copped dat 4.0 last semester, so fingers crossed for top 10% now)
LR?: Yeah; no e-board
Recs: COA judge for whom I externed, two profs
Where applying?: COAs broadly
Any other factors: Beginning a two-year D.Ct. clerkship in a non-competitive Texas district next year, so applying for 2015. Hoping to clerk for the awesome judge who wrote one of my recs, but obviously not putting all my eggs in that basket.
We're in pretty similar situations, including 3L fall GPA. I am beginning to wish that my clerkship was two years, so I could start applying for 2015 already.
Yeah, it looks like it. Congrats on your grades last semester! It's hard not to mail it in as a 3L, but we have to keep our eyes on that sweet, succulent COA prize. Are you only applying for 2015 spots, or both 2014 and 2015? Should I be eyeing 2015 spots already? I was planning on applying a bit after I began in August so that I could maybe secure a rec from my judge. Would that be too late?
