I applied to the Brooklyn JRP Unit--I had a final interview with the attorney-in-charge at the end of February. AIC said offers wouldn't come until May. I even tried to leverage with a job offer but still nothing. :(. DId you apply?


Yeah I applied but I haven't heard anything. How do you think the interview went? I thought I did really well in my panel - but I couldn't tell in my final round.


Have you heard anything? Still nothing on my end. Thinking about sending an email.


No not yet - I really hope I hear back soon. At least a rejection if anything so I can figure everything out.


Checking in again--still nothing over here. Painful.

I'd really appreciate hearing from anyone with any insight or advice on the Skype interview with Colorado.


Do you already interview? I’m assuming so. Update?


Interview went very well and I wound up accepting an employment offer back in December. Hoping to get cleared for the bar soon and looking forward to finding out where I'm going to be. Like at least one other poster in this thread, I'm hoping to wind up somewhere rural. Curious about when most people wind up starting--I indicated I'd be available as early as August, but I suspect it'll be a while longer. Feel free to PM.

I did. Waiting to hear back about second round. I think they're looking to be done by the end of June.

Relatedly, is there any more news about the CDP line hiring? Are they done? I was a finalist for the Tina round, but then heard crickets.

I've also heard news that everyone is starting earlier this year - in September, instead of October/November. Is that 'right, too?

I heard September/October at the PRDU interview. I don't know anything about what's going on with the CDP practice. I've seen on prior posts in the forum that if you are a third interview finalist, then an offer is likely. At the end of the day, it seems like one can't really predict when people hear back. I know I'm not much help re: your question, but sending you good vibes~~

Well the interview with the second office is coming up on 4 weeks old now. Didn't even acknowledge the thank you letter. I really thought that interview went great, the best I've ever had. I would be really happy for that job and a chance to work with the people and clients there. I'm seriously contemplating not sitting for July.

I feel that. I get a little deflated and nervous when interviewer's don't acknowledge my thank you note, but I don't think I've ever had anyone respond to thank you letters yet. As for sitting for the bar, come through!

I've been through a year of not being barred (long story involving three JX), and it SUCKS. People seem to prefer to know you're barred elsewhere versus not being barred at all. I don't know what your particular situation is, but generally I have found that having a license is better than no license. Also, NY administers the UBE, sooooo you're taking the bar exam of like 25 different states (in case NY isn't the only place you're looking at).

Although the state I was applying to was UBE, I wasn't going to take a UBE exam. (it's a thing, just if I were to explain it it would out where I applied and where I'm taking the bar). I am probably going to do UBE in Feb though, now.
