Federal judges are busy as hell and I am sure the vast majority feel that they will find capable judicial clerks on whatever timeline they choose. It's likely that they are especially busy right now, as July 4th is right around the corner and I am sure they are trying to tie up last minute loose ends on their docket before they can enjoy their "long" weekend off. At least this is what I am telling myself.
In the end, even if you or I don't get a clerkship, it's not the end of the world. Clerkships are some of the most highly desirable and sought after positions in the legal community; you are literally competing with hundreds, if not thousands, of applicants. You may think you are an especially special snowflake (and I am sure we all do), but that's just it - everyone is fuckin' impressive.
So folks: relax. Easier said than done - I know - but give it a shot.
^ This ... from a judge I know personally - he and clerks are tackling apps and calls when they get back from vacation. I know he's currently at the beach. FYI in the Southeast.
Great point. Assuming most judges have several hundred apps to sift through, if they actually adhered to OSCAR, then I am guessing there will be more movement post 4th of July. If I were a JA, clerk, or a judge, I would not want to have to review all these apps right before a holiday.
Also, although job applicants think job applications are the most important thing in the world, every employer I have ever known considers filling job postings and reviewing resumes to be the BOTTOM of their priority list, regardless of how badly they need to fill the position.
Also, to disgruntled HYS student: I hope you are trolling the boards and not actually being serious. If so, good troll, you got everyone riled up. If not, I feel sorry for you because with that attitude, life will be tough moving forward.
