Post clerkship hiring outcomes

Post by Anonymous User » Tue Mar 26, 2024 11:49 pm

Folks who have gone/is going through the post-clerkship hiring process — care to post your non-identifiable stats (e.g. state? A3? circuit?) and outcomes (e.g. boutique, v50, etc)?

Recent grad; currently clerking at the district court level, and have a circuit clerkship lined up directly after. T14 but grades are very average (not sure how much grades matter in post-clerkship hiring??). Would like to go to a boutique but not sure if my grades take me out of the running for those. Anyways would be nice to hear about everyone’s outcome!

I've had a piss poor cycle.
COA clerk. Flyover circuit.
t14. Decent grades
Applied fairly broadly, but no apps to NYC.
Barely any bites. Still no market offers.
Have spoken with multiple ppl and had them review my materials. Not sure what has gone so wrong.

Sorry to hear. Were you in big law before your clerkship or did you have a big law offer before starting your clerkship?
