read mr. galt's statement. he's not being serious - he's mocking me.
No he's not. What part of his statement is mocking you. It's possible to get a federal clerkship from a T4 (very hard, but also very possible). It's also possible to turn this into a CoA clerkship. How is he mocking you? Also, you go to a T2 not a T4.
i guess you're right if T4 and T6 refer to HYSC and HYSCCN. i read him as joking about tier 6. also, the presence of creighton and pepperdine on the list.
I wan't joking about a T6, I was simply saying that it is possible (though difficult) to get a SCOTUS clerkship without going to yale, harvard, stanford... Basically, focus on getting a Fed District Court, State Suprme Court or CoA clerkship and go from there.
And I am 90% sure one of Justice Thomas's clerks went to crighton and one of Justice Alito's went to pepperdine, but the guy who went to pepperdine was his clerk on the CoA (how lucky is he?)
