wow... this is a tough one. Can Harvard survive? I'm betting yes.

That link I posted also shows the precentage of each class that clerked after 3L. I don't think it differentiates between state and federal programs. I'm interning in Federal court now and the judges I've asked here say they pick clerks based on their resume, GPA, and writing sample, what school they went to is often not a factor unless they hadn't heard of it. The federal judiciary is filled with judges from every school and so they understand that not every good applicant went to HYorS. In fact, the judge I work for now went to Stetson. That being said, the numbers show that a larger precentage of students from prestige schools land clerkships.Cool. Thanks for the advise. I'd really like to see something specifically geared towards federal, but what was really helpful.
But what about my transcript?You just send in the incomplete transcript. It's just like undergrad: you give the school your transcript through your junior year. If you're waitlisted or something, you can send an updated one with fall grades. Then, give your final transcript to the school you accept.
In October it will not be complete. It will only be complete in May. So when should I send in the application in order to be admitted for September?
From what I understand, LSAC counts both grades from repeat courses. But my circumstance is a bit weird. Freshman year I took 1st year latin and got strait As. Well, there was a schedualing conflict the following fall and I ended up not taking Latin all that year. When I signed up for 200-level latin my junior year, I realized I forgot everything. So I went back retook my 100-level classes (getting all As again). So my question is, will i now have 2 years' worth of As on my LSDAS GPA? I'm also wondering if I should talk to my school at all because they're being very strange with the whole calculating the repeat into my GPA thing, or does that not matter to LSDAS at all?1. I honestly didn't think of it
2. From what it looks like the repeat is actualy helping me GPAwise so it's win-win
As far as I know, as long as your school has it on your transcript as a grade, it counts. Why didn't you audit it?
