The deadline only passed a few days ago, but has anyone heard anything?

Had you done an informational interview previously? Did the email suggest how long the phone call would take?

ETA: Asking because I did an informational interview previously that seemed positive. I'm just hoping there's still a chance.

Doing a phone interview early next week for the Dallas office. Said they'd be trying to offer callbacks by the end of that week.

I sent an e-mail and the Houston office responded today "Our attorneys are in the process of reviewing the applications. We
will be able to let you know next week if you will be selected for an
in office interview. Please let me know if you have any questions."

The Houston office conducted phone interviews this week, they will be contacting applicants selected for in-office interviews either at the end of this week or the beginning of next.

Are in office interviews only for those who have done a phone interview with the Houston office?

Yup, first round of interviews is done over the phone, and then they select a small pool of candidates from those to interview in-office. That's what I was told, at least.
