I don't have an answer to your question because I'm in the app process too, but I was wondering if you could give a vague timeline of your interviews with BDS? Specifically, when you had your 2nd round/panel interview and when you heard back about 3rd round? Thanks!

Bronx Defenders is doing their first round of final panel interviews starting this week, October 29th. They do interviews and make offers on a rolling basis, as far as I'm aware.

Popping in from the "dark side" to let my counterparts across the aisle that NYC public defender offices may see a pay rise for their entry level classes: https://queenseagle.com/all/2018/10/26/ ... pay-parity

I didn't even know this thread existed! I've been haunting the EJW thread. I just heard back from Miami and Louisville about 2nd round interviews.

How am I supposed to afford all this flying!?

Has anyone heard from Philly, Portland, Seattle, Legal Aid, or Colorado yet?

Just heard back from Seattle:

"Based on the number of vacancies anticipated, we have selected candidates to interview at this time. Although you were not selected for an interview, your application will remain eligible for consideration until we have finished the selection process from this recruitment, which is expected to be finalized by year end."

Did everyone receive that? Is that basically just a rejection, or is it more like an "alternate"?

Any more movement from people who interviewed at EJW? Still haven't heard back from the majority of the places, only Philly and West Palm.

A former Prettyman told me that they will be making calls tomorrow for those selected for an interview.
