Dead in the water?

Post by Anonymous User » Mon Aug 10, 2015 5:20 pm

I'm wondering what my COA chances are after some recent disappointing news. T14 student, top few percent, but recently landed a secondary journal rather than law review. Any idea on what circuits are foreclosed now? Thanks.

No circuits are foreclosed based on not making law review.

And you can't judge the competitiveness of a clerkship by what circuit it's in.
