Fact is, with Civil, there are multiple different components and they probably decide on their own people at their own pace.
Despite the post on the Avue website, I spoke directly to the Civil Division ARC (Attorney Recruitment Coordinator) for SLIP via telephone two weeks ago. She told me that:
(1) Every branch within Civil Division was done choosing their finalists.
(2) If an individual were selected as a finalist for Civil Division, that would be indicated online under "Application Status" on the Avue website. (This seems to be confirmed by other posters' reports in this thread that their online application status changed from "Selected for further consideration" to reflect their finalist status.)
(3) First round of rejections would go out November 1st.
(I'm the same poster who's posted a few times above; I'm at "Selected for Further Consideration," but never received a rejection during this latest wave of rejections. FWIW, I suppose this situation could mean that we're still under consideration in any other components that we applied to besides Civil and thus why we weren't rejected by DOJ as a whole, but didn't move on to finalist status for Civil on Avue - i.e., for me, that could theoretically mean that I'm still under consideration at SG and OLC and was rejected from Civil (which would explain why I didn't receive a rejection from DOJ as a whole), but I seriously doubt the plausibility of that explanation for my own circumstances, anyway.)
