Nothing. I kind of forgot about it, but I guess it's at least nice to know that others are clueless too.

Yeah I know a bunch of people waiting. Did you work at a district court as a 3:03?

I didn't. I'm assuming those who didn't won't get very far and are apt to get a ding 6 months from now if they hear anything, but I also know next to nothing about that office.

Yeah I was in one of the district courts and they basically flat out told me they want people who were 3:03 for a summer since those people can basically pick up and start running immediately. With that said, I know at least one other 3:03 still waiting to hear.

Well, if I'm lucky, that means they'll value similar work in a different big city and I could have a shot. Of course, I'm not lucky, so I would guess that the budget sucks and they're only going to look at their 2L summer interns and ignore any other applications.

I hope so-- you never know. Best of luck.

Is this office still hiring only 10-15 new ADAs a year? Better question, am I completely screwed if I have zero Boston ties?

It will be very tough. I was told the class is about 40.

40 is a nice uptick compared to previous years. Thanks for the info.
