Yikes. Was it really that many people that made it to the Tina round?


I believe she said 75-100, though I also thought I saw something on here about 125? Figured I'd split the difference. Think it's at least 75.

Did she give the "we would extend you an early offer" line to everyone who interviewed?

Does anyone know what the final round at BDS entails? I've heard it's more intense than LAS/other finals and has a panel, just curious what to expect.

Did you already hear back?! My interview was a while back & still no movement :( I would also like to know what the last round is like...

Just tried to leverage an offer at Legal Aid and was told my application could not be expedited. Just my experience, but it does confirm what others have said here about no early offers being made. Maybe others will have better luck.

I'm curious too.

For the OP- when did you first interview? Are you a recent grad or 3L? I'm a recent grad who just interviewed less than a month ago. I'm wondering if not hearing back yet means something.

BDS OP. I'm happy to PM people, but since it seems like final interviews are trickling (versus a wave) out I would rather do that than post more specifics. I'm sorry!

Didn't apply to MD but had a screener with CPCS & an interview some time ago. CPCS is doing interviews all throughout this month & next. I'm not familiar with how long CPCS takes with offers/3rd round interviews though

Had an LAS interview with Tina a few weeks ago and they're calling some (well...one) of my references. Not sure if they're doing that after everyone's or as part of a wave.

I interviewed with Maryland in early January. I never heard back. Some people emailed recruiting, but didn't hear either a yes or no.

Does anyone have any information about Philly hiring timeline? I don't know of anyone who has been contacted since their panel and I am beginning to lose hope. Have offers gone out?

Yes. They've been giving out offers since November.

Re: Philly. I'm in the same boat as the first poster above. I e-mailed two weeks ago and was told they are not done hiring for the fall class, and are "still considering my application." But given that offers have been rolling, I wouldn't think an offer is likely at this point. I'm sorry :( !

Yeah I know multiple people who have gotten offers as far back as November. I also know multiple people who have gotten rejections after their panel. I also know multiple people who haven't heard back yet from their panel. I also know multiple people who have gotten call backs after their panel.

Basically, who knows, but if you haven't gotten a rejection yet then it's still somewhat hopeful.

BDS told me not except more offers until April. I have another offer and they said they are still doing both 2nd & 3rd round interviews, so it seems like they're not going to have an immediate decisions.

Yes, I had a 3rd round interview and this was what Lisa told me when I let her know about the other offer
