I told the clerkship coordinator/office at my school that I was considering applying for Newsom for 2017. They said 1) that he would probably go for more impressive candidates, like feeder judge status, and 2) that he is not soliciting applications because he will probably bringing these little clerk geniuses from his old firm or through his own contacts. This is one person at one school, so take it for what its worth, but it doesn't give me much hope. FWIW I'm top 1/3 at mid Top-10 school and have a district clerkship and two years of big law experience.
