NY Fed 1L Summer Law Clerk

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Feb 03, 2011 1:10 pm

Anybody interview for this yet (or before)? Was wondering what I should expect.

Also, would you take this position over, say, a 1L SA at a law firm?

Just send in grades this week. Haven't heard anything back, aside from that my file was updated.

did you send in grades after you interviewed? or before you heard if you got an interview?

I got an interview, and in the same email they requested grades (I hadn't sent them yet).

For 1L summer, I would take the clerkship. I've heard from a few people that 1L SA's are unpaid, and rarely stick with the same firm for 2L summer. And having the clerkship will make you a stand-out candidate at OCI, thus giving you a better opportunity for a great 2L SA position.

Mind if I ask school range and when you applied? No interview here, but sent in grades.

Sure---CCN. You can eliminate one of 'em based on location. Applied in the middle of January.

oh okay. i interviewed a few weeks ago over winter break, and they asked for undergrad grades. they never asked me for first semester, so i have not provided it (less than stellar unfortunately).

For the person who asked schools, I go to a top 10, with ties in NY though. Has anyone been told when decisions will be made? I was told that it would take about a month...which is quickly approaching.

I'm the CCN'er (and OP). What was the interview like? Generalities will suffice if you're uncomfortable with getting specific.

I met with the main guy in charge of the summer intern program, then with 3 attorneys (representing the different divisions), and then reconvened with the main guy again. It took about 2 hours in total. Despite the structure, the actual interviews were quite informal/conversational. Definitely go with questions to ask and be able to explain why you want to work there. Other than that, the interview appeared to be more a test of personality/fit.
