My second round (really first they skipped screener with me) has a hypo and instructions.

Thanks!

I applied last winter (maybe January?) and got my first interview in March or April of my 3L year. My understanding is that they don't ultimately extend offers until after graduation.

Also, CPCS doesn't ask for transcripts.

Any idea to whom you're meant to address your letter of interest for CPCS? The website gives no indication.

I had a screener interview on campus. I actually didn't feel good about the interview, found the interviewer to be off=putting and disinterested, and was expecting the rejection. Good luck to everyone else there, though!

On their website now it just links to an online employment application. Did anyone apply this way?

Also, has anyone heard from Colorado?

I applied via the online employment application per my career office's advice (I asked whether I should just email Krista Lohr or use the website and they said use the website).

The website changed within the last couple of months. Sorry if I gave incorrect information. (I'm the anon who said to email ms. Lohr)

Received a BDS second-round interview last week. The call came 2-3 weeks after my screener interview. They're setting these second-round interviews for December and January.

Has anyone heard back from EJW interviewers, presumably for second-round interviews? Someone posted earlier that they got a snail mail rejection from NH PD, but I don't remember seeing news about any other employers.

No, a week or two before EJW.
