Does that mean I probably got dinged from the place since I dont have any notification email?

Employers just started reviewing apps today and have until Oct. 3 to make interview selections. Don't freak out yet.

I noticed that this changed today. It now says "Request Period Closed."

I only submitted 12 applications, mostly to PD's. Nothing yet!

I think I did 5 PD and 5-6 nonprofit stuff. One to three is optimistic huh?

On a sidenote:

- do you remember the page # they started talking about the results from last year's fair?

- for PD jobs, does working for a nonprofit that does criminal defense count as "equivalent" experience or not? if it's better answered in the PD thread ill move it there.

thanks! and good luck!

i believe the bloodbath began in the 40s on the Prosecution/PD Gunner thread.

i'd say that working at a non-profit that does criminal defense (i.e. Legal Aid Society of NY) absolutely counts as experience and goes towards showing "demonstrated commitment", but i'm just a 2L, so you might get better answers in that thread.

for resumes, references, and other materials brought to table talks, should they be printed on bond paper, or is printer paper fine?

still *crickets*

I don't think you should ever print out resumes on printer paper if you're going to be handing out physical copies to people.
