Which component?

It doesn't seem like many offers have been made... just a few here and there.

I wonder if Monday-Wednesday they will be seriously making more calls.

I don't think I can stand to wait after Thanksgiving.

Many congrats. The only confirmed offers I've read or hear about were made very late on Friday. So maybe most components are waiting for the actual "key dates" i.e. Monday-Wednesday? I hope so for our sakes!

I can confirm that DOJ ENRD has made some calls. I got a call on Thursday and will accept on Monday. I go to a top 5 school and am in around the top 1/3. I know of 1 other person who has been called from ENRD as well. Good luck all.

Congratulations! Do you know if/when your references were contacted?

Thanks. One of my references was called during the week of 11/1; I haven't heard from the others so I am not sure if/when they were called. I interviewed a week or so before that.

Anyone know about Civil Rights offers? I heard one CRD applicant's status changed to "finalist" on Tuesday (11/16), but haven't heard of any offers yet . . . .

Is anyone aware of any OIL offers yet? If so, do you know which division (Appellate or District Cts)?

Do you happen to know when his/her status changed to "finalist" or when his/her references were called?

A friend who applied in a previous year was a finalist, but never had references called...and never got an offer.

Did your status change to finalist on avue before you received an offer? Did you come from a bankruptcy clerkship?

did your status just change yesterday?


Not entirely sure. I know it was still "Selected for Interview" until this past Monday, and I was being really good (uncharacteristically so, for me) about not compulsively checking. It's also been a busy week, that might have something to do with it.


Same poster as above. Just found out today that one of my references was contacted last Wednesday (11/17) by someone from EOIR, before I even knew my status had been updated. Haven't heard from them yet, though.

I also interview with the UST and have not heard anything at all. The status on the application website still says "Selected for Interview." Does this mean that I didn't make it, or can I hold out hope. I know that there have been a couple offers and the status was changed to Finanlist for them last Wednesday, but I wasn't sure. Thanks.

So if my status still says "Selected for Interview," I should probably give up hope, huh?

I haven't, but I would also love to know this. It seems unlikely they will have all offers by Wednesday as anticipated if no offers have gone out yet.
