Clerkship Chances/Strategy

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Jan 25, 2014 4:16 pm

Top 10% to 20% (of the two, probably closer to top 20%) at DNCG
Law Review, Executive/Senior Board (Non EIC, SAE)
V5 Satellite Office
Essay recommended for publication (very likely to be published) in a practitioner journal

I applied narrowly this year and struck out, but I am going to expand my applications this year--so this will be after working for a firm for a year (current 3L). Looking for thoughts on chances (at Fed District and COA) and any tips for making this year's applications more effective. I appreciate any insight or help you can give me!

OP here, going to give this one bump to see if I can get any comments. If not, I'll let it die.

Yeah, I would say that the issue the first time around was probably applying narrowly, rather than your qualifications. And more judges seem to like alumni candidates, which would work in your favor.
