If I am unsuccessful for Insight, does that mean I will automatically be unsuccessful for a clerkship at KWM?

Absolutely not. The Insight Program is a highly competitive process due to the limited spots available. Even if you are unsuccessful for a place on the Insight Program we encourage you to apply for a seasonal clerkship with us and would like to assure you that an unsuccessful outcome for the Insight Program should not be taken as an indication of unsuitability for a clerkship.
