Just wondering if there were any good threads that talk in depth about these fellowships? I did a search and couldn't find anything. I guess I was hoping for sort of a guide or a thread with more info. This one seems like everyone in the conversation is already well aware of how the process works and the ins and outs. I have read the website for both but I was just wondering if TLS had any compilations of inside knowledge.

Did anyone get a "still in the running" email at the end of February? I got one in January that said we'd hear by February 28, but I haven't heard anything since. Anyone?

I'm in the same boat. I never got an email on Feb. 28th.

Also, I know the website says they won't give individual status updates if you contact them but I emailed a couple times to see if they would at least tell me how many fellowships they given out so far and how many people are still in the running but they haven't responded.

GRRRR! This is so frustrating!

No, and I know I'm still in the running because I got an interview. So don't give up hope.

I don't know if any of us has any inside knowledge, but if you ask questions some people might know some answers.

Is everyone out today? Or are folks without pending interviews/offers still in the running?

I'm out. I didn't have anything pending. (I did have an interview, but already got rejected from it.)

Did you all actually hear from them today? I haven't interviewed and have heard nothing since January.

Yeah, got dinged today. I last heard that I was still in the running about a month ago.

I started putting together my SBP halloween costume today. :twisted:

good luck at EJW conference and late clerkships! sickly relieving to know I don't have to do the rest of the skadden process, although cocktail hours would have been nice.


Does anyone know what the GPA cutoff is?

Calls for Skadden interviews went out tonight.

Can anybody who previously interviewed shed some light on what it was like?

Interviewed for Skadden but got my reject letter on Wednesday. Good luck to everyone who made it through!

Anyone know if any EJW sponsoring firms have started interviewing yet?
