Comments

As a student who has done several clerkship interviews and accepted an offer, this blog was of some value, but had to be taken with a grain of salt. Personally, I would not, and did not, post anything on the blog about receiving interview offers or doing interviews with certain judges. My thinking was that if the clerks for that judge were monitoring the blog, I didn't want them to figure out, by temporal proximity, that I was "telling stories out of school." The blog was most useful for figuring out if a judge was calling or had finished hiring (though not all of this info was accurate), but my belief in the reluctance of active interviewees to speak about the judges they had met with led me to discount the information provided. Simply put, the busiest students doing the most interviews had the most to offer the blog, but because of time constraints and the anonymity considerations I mention, they likely shied away from it.
