Anyone selected as a finalist for DOJ-OCIJ got a call yet? I was selected as a finalist yesterday, no call.

I was selected as a finalist yesterday, and my references were contacted earlier this week. I have not yet received a call either.

Finalist for OCIJ. No call here, and to my knowledge, no references called either. Not freaking out until next week.

I take that to mean all finalists are basically selected, but there is an off chance some components will add more later.

I don't think that's correct. The question was about status changes on Avue. Her answer is just saying that, if and when one is selected as a finalist, one's status will probably change on Avue.

That's what I thought at first, but on second reading I think she means that the finalist decisions are coming in on a rolling basis, and that she hopes they'll all be in by next week. Maybe I'm just being an optimist though.

Is there anyone who has interviewed but has NOT been selected as a finalist at this point? Component?

That's what I think she means. Though it is all a bit like reading the tea leaves.

After reading the whole thing over there, I would with the second response.

Yes, civil tax. Has anyone been selected as a finalist for tax?

Okay, this is going to sound a little like a humblebrag, which it's not meant to, but: I just got a phone call from a 703 area code, and thought I was going to pass out. However, it was NOT DOJ. :( (it was a call for an interview for something else, which was very exciting! but not really any more soothing to my nerves or anything.)

I also applied to that program and am now doubly sad for not hearing from either.

do you think they would leave a message? i can't answer my phone, but I can check my messages. 2 other usg agencies have left messages before informing me of offers, wonders if doj does the same.

I like literally just heard moments ago, so they may well still call! It takes a little while to work through a phone list.

Status changed to Selected as Finalist sometime in the last two hours. Interviewed w/ Antitrust DC and a field office (not NY). I assume this means I'm an alternate since someone above already got an offer from DC?

The frustrating thing is I have no IDEA when offers will go out. It would be nice to know when to focus my nervous energy because worrying about all this is exhausting! (It seems that yes, in the past, some offers have gone out on the Friday before Thanksgiving. But whether that means any offers will go out today, and from which components, seems impossible to tell.)

Same--though I did not interview for a field office. Also same thought process regarding alternate.
