by activities i mean journal, moot, clinics, lexis/west rep, judicial internship, etc. i'm sure there are others i haven't even heard of.

I go to a school somewhere in the #18-28 range (trying to remain anonymous), which I believe has a decent national rep for its ranking, whatever that means. i'll probably take the offer in california, but i'll look into splitting the summer. thanks for your comments!
hey, i'm trying to decide between offers to intern for a USDC judge in california and a state supreme court judge in a small new england state. i prefer coming back to california after graduation. all in all, do the potential networking connections and so forth *really* matter when weighing these options? i don't mind staying in new england for the summer.
These are my general categories. Of course, others may disagree. The firms might be ranked lower or higher than the others, depending on how much you would like the money.
bump. anyone know the answer to this? i've been wondering the same thing.
If a summer with a USCOA judge is most sought after, USDC judge is second most sought after, state supreme court judge third...where does a summer with a USDC magistrate judge fall?
i like my school but i want to get back to california. where would i probably need to place in my class to transfer from a school like GW (#20-25 ish) to Boalt, UCLA or USC?
if i'm near the top of my class, is it even practical for me to transfer to UCLA/USC (15-16)? the disparity isn't as huge as it would be to Boalt.
recently shot a few judicial internships apps to my home state and have one interview set up over winter break with a federal district judge. in terms of "ranking" 1L summer experiences, where does this stand? i've heard that getting a judicial internship with a judge at the (federal) court of appeals is comparable to working in biglaw. where would an internship with a district judge stand?
