Manhattan DA Summer 2013 Internship

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Feb 13, 2013 8:18 pm

Has anyone interviewed with the Manhattan DA for the summer 2013 internship and received a response yet?

I interviewed a couple of weeks ago and I'm getting nervous.

I know they are still hiring as I have an interview in early March...would you (or anyone else) care to share anything about the interview experience?

It wasnt that stressful at all. Their site said that the interview lasts 30 minutes by mine was closer to 50 minutes. I heard that they ask hypos but I wasnt asked any. Most of the questions surrounded my prior experiences and my favorite classes. He seemed really interested in my commitment to being a future ADA.

Can't believe I am flying into NYC just to answer softball questions like that...kind of surprising they don't just do the interviews over the phone for out of towners...

I'm a 2L who interviewed here and I did get asked a hypo. However, to reiterate what everyone else has said the interview was pretty laid back and never got adversarial like they apparently are for full-time gigs.

Also, from what I gathered from the interview and reading past posts about the internship, it seems that the process goes:

Application-->Interview-->some sort of hiring committee type decision-->offers/rejections

I think this explains why people have been waiting a few weeks without hearing anything. If anyone with past experience at this internship could shed some more light on how these decisions are made though, that would be great.

I let them know I had a offer yesterday and asked if they could make a decision before it expires, and they asked who with today. I also know they finished checking my references around last Thursday. But other than that I have not heard anything. I interviewed in the beginning of Feb.

My screener was Ms. Roper, so I sent her an email, then the next day someone from the legal hiring unit called me and I emailed her back to their general box.

hey all. I know they called my references last week and early this week. The references gave good reviews but hiring unit ADA would only say that I was a good candidate and I was in consideration. On the plus side, my girlfriend went to a psychic last night and she told me that my career looked bright. So I have that working for me. When I get my rejection letter, I'll be sure to share.

Stats for those recently accepted? Impressions about how interview went/how instrumental that was for offer?

Same anon here. I realize this is highly speculative. I truthfully have nothing better to do than torture myself.

TTT; above average GPA; moot court, law review, trial ad; prior DA experience; interview went longer than the 30 minute allotment, topics included ethics, trial strategy, past experiences, commitment to DA career, etc.

If you haven't heard back yet, Hiring Unit said that decisions will still be made through April

I believe they call everybody's references, whether they're even considering giving you an offer or not. No idea why they even bother doing this.

Any new updates? I interviewed at the end of Fed. To date all references have been called. It's getting close to April so I'm sure they will be making final decisions soon.
