from our clerkship office: while some DDC judges have given offers, seems like most have not even started interviews yet.

From what I've seen, the conservative wing other than Friedrich hasn't started on 2022 yet.

Any idea how close Kelly is to full for '22/rough stats on those who've already gotten calls?

Nothing to add in terms of judges, but it's been tough trying to stay positive while getting no interest from any judges. Hopefully there's more movement in the next week!

Trying to maintain zen but it's tough. I applied very specifically in line with my stats, networked, did just about everything I could do to be competitive and yet I can't get a bite from anyone. This is such a frustrating process.

I think the "reading period" of the plan may have given us, including myself, unrealistic expectations. The reading period made it almost sound like clerkship hiring was going to be like OCI -- a quick series of interviews over a compressed time period. This might be true with some judges, particularly feeders, but I don't think it's true for most of them. I think we are playing the long game.

Also, I think we need to remind ourselves that having the opportunity to even seriously consider a federal clerkship is a pretty big accomplishment. This requires good grades from, typically, great schools. Most of us are probably better off than 95% our law school peers who either have worse grades or attend less-prestigious institutions.

That's at least what I tell myself while I wait and am disappointed to not have seen a lot of movement.
