I am clerking for a judge who doesn't care a whole lot about grades (unless you got some bad ones 1L year). I was barely above median and landed one, and I am currently reviewing apps for the judge. In the judge's opinion (as well as mine FWIW), amazing recommendations >> demonstrated writing ability >> grades.


Are you clerking for a federal judge?
