Are you sure they didn't mean selected as finalists? My career adviser (at a T14) said she just received a report from DOJ yesterday that listed finalists, but never mentioned hearing anything at earlier stages. For what it's worth, it doesn't sound like there are more than a couple other finalists.

I'm not the same poster, but I'm in the same situation. I think we can give up now. I ran into someone from career services last Friday who said one of the SLIP applicants she knew had already advanced with the Civil Rights Division. The student is no one I know and I didn't ask for details, but I have to assume this means it's over for those of us still stuck at "application received."

Unless, of course, we get selected by these people:

I interviewed with DOJ Civil Rights on 10/15. I haven't heard anything since then. Does the prior post mean that they have finished extending offers?

As far as I'm aware, the offer extending process has just begun (assuming you're talking SLIP and not Honors). The previous post from the DOJ website was talking about people who weren't already at the "selected for further consideration" phase. Basically saying that almost all of the components had finalized their selections so if you weren't moved into the next phase you were probably out.

Incidentally, while I don't really need to know, you seem to be the first poster to report any activity from Civil Rights. I think the other people here waiting on Civil Rights would appreciate knowing what your application status is showing right now...

Anyone have any insight to what this whole finalist status is about? I don't understand how "selected for further consideration" is different from "finalist", considering there doesn't seem to be another round of reviews that go on past the further consideration stage.

Know of at least one offer being extended. Beyond that, I don't know.

I don't have a definitive answer, but it seems that some components designate finalists before making offers / interviewing people. Others only seem to designate finalists after interviewing / making offers. It is confusing.

It almost seems "finalist" is synonymous for actually being selected, so I'm not sure why they don't just say that.

Despite the apparent effects of progressing to "Finalist" status, this statement is definitely not true. I know plenty of people who have advanced to "Finalist" status who have not gotten offers / been selected. From someone who works in Civil Division: it is another independent stage of review / ranking applicants.

I stand corrected then. It just seems like everyone on here who progressed past "Application Received" have progressed to all subsequent stages so far, making me think they aren't really different stages at all. However, I have nothing to base this off of, and we may not be a very representative group.

Also, I'm worried that the fact I didn't rank the branch I'm "selected for further consideration" with first is going to nip me in the butt at one of these evaluation stages, so I wish they would just be done with.

Office of Justice Programs Office for Civil Rights e-mails requesting interviews went out today (about an hour ago).

Status changed to "Selected for Further Consideration."
