You might want to give the other judges an opportunity to call you first. I'd wait at least a couple of hours before making parlay calls.

Just got a call advertising "great new information about Medicare" from one of my on-plan judge's area codes. Almost makes me want to vote for Paul Ryan.

Was reading everyone else's updates and growing despondent. Thought about tossing my iPhone in the garbage. Then it rang. Interview with a district judge in NV.

If we don't get a call pretty much right at noon, do you guys think we can safely assume we won't be hearing anything? It seems like if judges are actually interested in someone, they'll want to get to them early to snap up their interview slots, so I'm just wondering how likely it is to get any calls during the rest of this afternoon.

Call from DE/SNDY Bankr.

When is the "good" interview spot? Noon? 11:30? 9:00?

Got one from EDPA as well. Is there a reason not to share which judges?

I looked at last year's thread and it looks like calls came in for about an hour after the start time, with trickles after that. So I wouldn't lose hope yet.

My problem must be that I have so many incoming calls that none of them can reach me.
