I graduated in 2016, did a state court clerkship, and then was hired as a hearing officer. I’m looking to apply for an attorney advisor position but wonder if my lack of ‘traditional’ legal work will harm my chances. Thoughts?

thoughts on INSEAD? I need to make a decision: got into their ‘21 January intake which starts in a couple of months. This is the cohort that has summer for internships.
Not sure if it’s a good decision to go right now. I’m based out of the US and I’m questioning how much real value add it will be. Plus with the pandemic situation I’m not sure how the job market will be for internships or even after I’m done. They’re also asking for an outrageous €10k upfront fee to reserve the spot!

How do I determine the likelihood of getting a Top Secret Security clearance?

I have plenty of positive equities since then and evidence of rehabilitation for admission to the bar. I just have no idea how much forgiveness is possible in a TS security clearance.
