for those of you getting responses-- are you getting notified by email right away or are you actually checking through the EJW site?

Usually the email responses have been on point, but last night an email ding from one application didn't show up until this morning. I found out about the ding through the site. HTH

Realized I will probably be dinged by all public defender agencies I applied to because I didn't bother to clarify that my clinic is a criminal defense clinic on my resume.

So if I'm out at Bronx and Brooklyn, any thoughts on whether I still have a shot at Legal Aid? I don't know how competitive they are in relation to each other, just that they are all very competitive.

Maybe I'll just keep refreshing the page so I can watch all my hopes and dreams die in real time.

revise your resume to reflect that the clinic is criminal defense, discuss what you've done in the clinic in your cover letter, and reapply direct to the places that ding you at EJW. don't give up!

There's also table talk - a couple posters have mentioned getting offers from those alone, so take the above advice and consider that.

It depends on what time the employer specified under "Accepted Students Sign-up Open"

Heads up: one of my accepted organizations changed its sign up time and started allowing sign ups immediately.

Back to repeatedly jamming the F5 button.

I'm still waiting to hear back from a lot of places. Will they actually make and submit all the selections by midnight, or is this something that could take a few more days?

Would also like opinions on this. IIRC, everyone met the deadline last year and there was a similar mad rush at the end.
