Your chances are low only because so few people are chosen for SCOTUS and so, so many worthy applicants are rejected.

I assume you mean "not top 10 people" and not "not top 10 percent" right?

Are you clerking for a well-known feeder?

Do you have a well-known faculty recommender willing to write something like, "this is the most intelligent and capable student I have ever seen in my 30 years of teaching at HYS"?

Are you conservative? (This increases your chances)

Are you a Rhodes Scholar? Marshall Scholar? Or do you have some other very significant achievement in your past?

Are you a URM?

Do you have any personal connection to any of the justices?

This is way too vague. Who did you clerk for, are you a URM, are you in Fed Sosc, do you have some prior interesting experience on the level of Rhodes, are you well connected, is this HYS Harvard or Yale?

When you say “chance me for SCOTUS,” do you mean chances of becoming a justice or a chances of becoming a clerk?
