DHS Honors 2013

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Oct 03, 2012 7:07 pm

DHS Honors deadline was Monday.

Anyone know how many applications they get, how many people they interview, or how many positions they fill each year? Their website doesn't provide this detailed information but maybe someone knows...
--LinkRemoved--

Has anyone heard back about an interview yet? (I doubt it)

Yeah, I haven't heard anything, either - but then, I sent in my application Sunday night, so I'm not surprised.

They're calling on a federal holiday? That's dedication... guess I can cross that one off my list.

I don't know how they divvied up the list. It's possible that this was one person who decided to call today, rather than it being widespread.

Since the deadline to send in one's materials for vets preference is October 16, I highly doubt they have made all their calls yet.

Thank you, that makes me feel better! (Not being a vet, I missed that.)

Where did you see this deadline? I can't find it on the website.

That's for the Intern Program, not the Honors Program (which is what this thread is titled)! The confirmation e-mail for the Honors Program had no such deadline.

Indeed. Oh well, I didn't have much of a shot at this one anyway!

Little afraid of outing myself (if posting to TLS didn't already do that). But, generally, T30, top 10%, LR, internships/ECs related to DHS' mission.

just to clarify - that was for DHS honors and NOT DHS intern program, right?

Ha, I got a call from DC today, too, and had the same reaction! (and no, it wasn't DHS.)

Does anyone know anyone who has been hired through the DHS Honors Program? Have there been any other phone calls?

A friend of mine applied last year, and was selected for an interview. His stats weren't necessarily all that impressive: middle of his class at a T3 school, but he had experience in immigration law. DHS seems to be the most mysterious of all the honors programs as no one really talks much about it.
