Did the EOIR folks give you a timeline for accepting? Might help us understand when to expect second round offers. Would also love to know your geography. I think some offers go out by region. Feel free to PM me if you're willing to share, but don't want to share more info online. Thanks for keeping us in the loop!

I think its safe to say at this point that if you're an EOIR finalist who hasn't had their references called yet, then you're an alternate. Now it's just time to wait patiently.

Did anyone get your interview travel reimbursements yet?

(Sorry if anyone thought this would be a post about an offer. I'm not sure what's more unlikely at this point--getting a travel stipend or an employment decision from the DOJ)

Did anyone get their reimbursements/has anyone heard anything from the DOJ in the last couple of weeks?

Right about now should be 28 days from the first round of offers going out. Anyone hear anything? Looks like I'm SOL.

Last year second round offers went out the two weeks after Christmas for both SLIP and Honors

Weird. Well I hope I find out soon so I can move on.

Anybody hear anything from EOIR lately? It's about the time for second round offers to go out.

Thanks for asking on Avue, whoever did that!

Do we really think anyone is turning down a government job at this point? I'm trying not to get my hopes up because I think the chance is extremely slim.

Also, for you all waiting on EOIR, does anyone have a good backup plan? After putting most of my eggs in the government basket, I'm panicky about graduating with NO JOB, despite a great GPA. Probably should have sold out earlier, huh?

I got a ding email for a non-immigration component. The email said something like "although you were a finalist, we're finished hiring and you're not picked." Oh well.

Can someone DM me contact information (email or phone) for the ARC for EOIR? Or any other contact you have at EOIR that would know about hiring? I know the judge I interviewed with gave me the card of the 3rd year JLC who works in the office, but I seem to have misplaced it.

Thanks!!

I find it really absurd that EOIR is still unable to release the tons of alternates who have been waiting already. They didn't have THAT many spots to fill this year.

This is what I was told today:

"The EOIR Honors Program hiring process is very close to completion, but is not complete yet."

So you know, totally not helpful. But I guess a sliver of hope?

I was told EOIR is done hiring, but they will keep me in mind in case a spot happens to open up. Basically, it's over.
