0%. You're not funny, so you could only get an offer from SullCrom. Every judge will think you're petulant.

I'm very happy if that's very accurate. I care a lot about accuracy.

You're destined to be disappointed. It's not a science. More like roulette.

In the DC Circuit, most of the judges hire students (or applicants who went 3L-->district court clerkship). You'll sometimes find DC COA clerks who worked for a year with a fellowship or at a firm first. It's rare to hear of a clerk with multiple years of firm experience.

I'm less knowledgeable about the Second Circuit but I believe it's roughly the same deal there.

Sorry, I can't come through with an EXACT estimate, but rest assured that your chances are slim. Good luck.

I'd imagine that your odds for a COA gig would be slightly lower as a 4th year than as a 2L.
