Manhattan DA summer internship interviews

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jan 08, 2014 10:22 pm

Does anyone know what these interviews are like? Career services isn't helpful. Are these typically just straightforward resume reviews? Are there hypos? What kind of questions will they ask?

Also, any idea what your chances are if you've been interviewed? 50%?

Thanks,

My interview had some resume review. I got asked an ethically oriented hypo. They'll probably ask about your interest in criminal law, criminal prosecution, maybe about why Manhattan over other places. Nothing too strange.

Was it just with one senior ADA? Did they get into your writing sample?

Just one ADA. And my interviewer did not ask about my writing sample.

Former legal intern at Manhattan here:

My interview was with one ADA (somewhat senior, but not the top of the seniority scale). There was a resume review, and a hypo also focused on ethical decision-making. Unlike the above poster, we did go into my writing sample a bit.
