COA Clerkship Chances and Questions

Post by AnonymousClerk » Tue Mar 12, 2019 11:42 pm

Hi guys,

I had a couple of questions regarding applying to COA judges. I'm currently a 2L, t20 school, top 10%, LR, and i have a district court clerkship lined up after graduation in a major city. I understand how competitive COA positions can be, so I'm super geographically flexible, and I tended to avoid applying DC COA or any known feeders. Do i have any shot?

Most of the COA judges where I go to school (and therefore have the most alumni/professor connections) are on the new hiring plan. My school still suggested that I send paper applications to judges that aren't on the hiring plan or didn't have anything listed on OSCAR. My professors have offered to make a few calls for me whenever, but do you guys think it'd be best to have my professors call judges who've opened up their applications already, or would it be better to wait and have them call some of the judges that they might have (slightly) more connection to once the new hiring plan kicks in in June?

Thanks!
