you definitely need to be a superstar to even get an interview, i would think that once you manage to get an interview how you do there would be the determining factor. also you have to clerk for an appellate judge first.there have been clerks outside the t14, i know notre dame has had 2 in the last few years and uiuc has had 1 or 2 as well.
