Yea, you should def send them an email. Could you also ask when they will make callbacks and stuff? It seems like other offices are getting movement.

I just got a ding email that included a line about how it was great speaking with me, but I never had a phone interview. Did this happen to anyone else?

Just got the same ding email. I'm sure it's a boilerplate one. DC office MVPB top 15-20% if anyone's curious. Good luck to those still waiting.

Yes. They ask you Qs for 20 mins, you ask Qs for 10 mins. Some people on the call didn't even talk.
