Question re Supreme Court Litigation Clinics

I wonder whether any of our readers can answer a question for me (under no circumstances will I call it a "bleg").  Can anyone offer any information about the eligibility process for students who wish to work in their school's Supreme Court litigation clinic?  Is it first-come, first-served?  Is it selective?  If so, according to what criteria?  I feel sure some of our readers must know.  Feel free to weigh in via private email or in the comments.  Many thanks.

Northwestern's SCOTUS clinic is open to all second and third years via the point bidding process used for all classes. Third years have more points, and so usually have priority in a highly sought after class like the clinic. But there are no other eligibility requirements.
