Are any former clerks (who have evaluated clerkship applications themselves) on here?  I realize these sorts of decisions vary from judge to judge, but I'd like to hear some first hand accounts.

I think it definitely gives you a boost, at least based on my personal experience. I know that in the past clerkship season, I got COA interviews over one or two of my peers, despite the fact that they had up to a .1 higher GPA than mine (that being said, I was still in approximately the top 5% of the class); the only major difference in resumes, to my knowledge was the fact that I was in law review leadership (non-EIC) and they were just basic members. Moreover, my work on the journal came up in a few of the interviews. This is coming from a T10 school, FWIW.

Yes...see above.  I can probably give more details if you have a specific general question ;).
