No hypos, but yeah I can't imagine what they would expect you to really know. Crim was my best class in the fall, but I doubt I could have formed a coherent thought if I they had given me some facts. Interview seemed to go pretty well though.
Please let me know if I should delete this question and repost anon, but what kinds of things would be auto-ding as far as the background check?
For DAs? Generally felonies, crimes of moral turpitude, and for USAOs bad credit with recent history that's negative.
Okay, don't want to go into details, but sounds like I'll be fine.
fwiw, ive been arrested a couple times and have a DUI on my record from 2006. Not one place I interned at (couple state/district attorney offices and state AG office) cared. I have permanent offer from a DA office, which i did not intern at so it's not like someone want to bat for me, after graduation and they didnt care when I told them.
If you have a questionable background, just let them know when they bring up the whole "this offer is conditional upon a passing a background check" stuff. I was upfront with that stuff and the upper level people seemed to apperciate that. They explained to me that they understood mistakes happen and were more concerned with whether you've learned from it, etc.
