Can anyone who has previously interned at the Brooklyn DA's office comment on their experience? Thanks!

It was a great experience. They don't ask you what bureau you want to be in, but I was proactive and emailed about it asking if I could express a preference and the woman told me to list 3 bureaus and she'd see what she could do. I got placed in my desired bureau and that made all the difference in my experience (compared with other people I've talked to). Try to request a specialized bureau outside of the zones, a smaller bureau where you can get to know the ADAs and fellow interns.

You really get out of it what you put into it. You make the most of your experience. I don't know if you'll want to apply for a permanent position there someday, but they keep intern evaluations on file and consult them when people re-apply for an ADA position.

I could go into some specifics, but I'd rather not on the open forum. But it was a great experience, but from what I've heard from other people, the bureau you're in really matters!

That is great to here! Do you know how I can find out the sizes of the different bureaus? They're listed online but can't figure out which ones would be preferential.

Just choose bureaus that aren't in the zones and you should be fine. Personally, I would stay out of ECAB too, but that's just me. Go for homicide, gangs, rackets, major narcotics, CAC, DV, stuff like that. :)
