If you find moot court fun, do it, if not don't. Moot Court is marginally important for jobs that involve litigation. If you don't like Moot Court, don't do it, because you aren't going to want to do litigation and those are the only jobs it will be relevant for unless you take a leadership position, or perform exceptionally well, which would be even less likely if you don't like it.
If you do like it, do it, it is a good experience, and even if it doesn't give you much of a boost for jobs, at least you will enjoy yourself.

Only chance at Biglaw these days is to be top 10 percent at a T14.
