SLIP finalist question

Postby judgefudge » Tue Dec 09, 2014 4:38 pm

I got a phone call from someone in the commercial litigation department asking if I was still interested in the job. They then said that they would call my references and get back to me in a week or so, and they asked for my writing sample. I know it's unlikely that anybody knows the answer to this, but is this promising? Are there a lot of people who get this phone call or does this mean that they're very interested and just checking to make sure my references check out.

I know it doesn't really matter, in theory, but I'm impatient. :mrgreen:

It sounds like they are working the same way they processed everything originally, which is: my references told me they were contacted, and then a few days later I received the call from Commercial Lit offering me the job without an interview. I would say it's a good sign.

Update: Got an offer this morning! Will probably be taking it and potentially splitting with a small law firm, once they get back to me. Thanks for the responses, good luck to anyone else who applied!
