Anyone know the timeline on Bristow hiring? No interviews right?

I'm contemplating applying for next year - how many people apply? What are the stats on those waiting to hear?

I haven't heard of anyone yet - maybe delayed by shutdown? Anyone else?

You have to be competitive for SCOTUS to get Bristow. You have to have a COA clerkship obviously. 2/9/DC is ideal. Magna at T14 or summa elsewhere and clerking for a feeder COA judge is a probably must.

Obviously there are outliers, such as people with White House and/or military experience. But it's arguably easier to get SCOTUS since there are 9 times the spots.

Seems like an outlier every year.

Really?

Who is the outlier from 2013?

I know rejection letters have been sent out. Wondering when the announcement will be made? ATL had the names out in mid/late November last year.

Inspired by the SCOTUS clerk taking questions thread, I wanted to toss out a couple of questions about the Bristow and see if anyone happens to know the answers:

-Is there an interview for the Bristow? I didn't see anything about one on the DOJ's web page.
-Does anyone know if there are any law firms that pay monetary bonuses for the Bristow, in any amount? If so, does anyone know how much?
-Does politics play a role in Bristow hiring? The Solicitor General is appointed by the President. Does any political aspect trickle down to Bristow hiring? Any elaboration on this point would be helpful.

Thanks in advance for any information.

Does anyone have any thoughts on these questions? I'm pretty sure there isn't an interview, but no idea on the other two.
